[press release from Cream]
Australian production company, Cream is pleased to announce award winning filmmakers, director ABE FORSYTHE and producer MATT REEDER have joined the team.
Abe won BEST COMEDY at this year’s TROPFEST with his crime/comedy short BEING CARL WILLIAMS.
Concentrating on a lean and focused boutique production service, Cream represents some of Australia and North America’s finest directors including Cannes Lion winning Richard D’Alessio, Marcus Hamill, Philip Kates, Luke Eve, Abe Forsythe, motion design marvel Marcelle Lunam, Dena Ashbolt and feature film director and feature comedy director Darren Ashton.
Says Abe: “Having grown up on film sets I know performance inside out. My transition into directing has grown from my love of working with actors. I can now use that experience to understand and better direct quality actors, many of whom I have had the good fortune to work with over the years.”
Says Cream Executive Producer ADAM WELLS: “Abe’s films show a razor sharp wit and great comic timing; he presents a situation then deftly subverts it in a hilarious way…Not only that, his win at Trop with Being Carl Williams shows that he has his finger on the pulse of what’s happening now. “
Abe Forsythe’s inclusion as a Cream director reinforces the boutique production company’s positioning into media-neutral work.” Said producer MATT REEDER, "We’re more interested in funny, clever, cool. Ideas will always win out.”
Abe and his producer Matt Reeder will be out to meet agencies in the coming weeks.
