Writers/Directors

Colin and Cameron Cairnes debut feature, 100 Bloody Acres, was released theatrically in the US and Australia in 2013. Starring Angus Sampson and Damon Herriman, and produced by Julie Ryan, the film garnered rave reviews internationally with rogerebert.com calling it ‘the best low budget horror-comedy since Shaun of the Dead’.  The film went on to win the Midnight X-treme award at the prestigious Sitges Film Festival and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the 2013 AACTA Awards.

The brothers’ second feature, Scare Campaign was released in the US and Australia in 2016.  This fresh and frightening take on the slasher film collected four awards (including best film and best director) at Monsterfest. Australia’s premier horror movie festival.

In 2016 Colin directed the audacious new ABC/SeeSo comedy series, Fancy Boy.  Cameron edited the show, which was written by and stars some of the country’s most exciting new comic voices.
