The Bazura Project 1.09 – Interview

If you’ve ever seen an Australian horror film, chances are it was written by Everett De Roche. The man has managed to forge an incredibly successful career in both genre films, kids TV and serial drama, and so The Bazura Project bought him a beer.

The Bazura Project 1.10 – Interview

Frankly, we could talk to James Hewison for hours upon hours. Unfortunately, the allotted length of our interviews segment does not allow this, so we felt obliged to keep the questions to only those that would interest our viewers. Then we thought “screw this”, and asked questions that couldn’t possibly interest anyone other than ourselves. Enjoy!
