This film developed out of a bugger of a job that needed doing. I had to dig out the concrete so why not create a film around this odious chore? Camera man was Renee Mondy. A lot of times Renee is my right hand and she regularly saves my bacon, I wouldn't have made this film without her. Suburban Archaeology was originally shot for one of Newcastle Video Makers one minute competitions, however, when I entered it into the Rocky Fringe film festival they required a 'flame' so I invented another short gag that was slotted onto the end and I think works quite well. Carolyn Starr did the camera work on the short flame section and we shot it during a commercial break as there was something good on the telly!
