RØDE Microphones is proud to announce the release of 'BUGGED', its short film entry into My RØDE Reel 2018.
In BUGGED, Michael (Jesse Hyde) returns home to his inner-Sydney house to find the lights out and his flatmate Karl (Callan Colley) speaking cryptically about dinner. Is Karl paranoid, or could they be… Bugged?
Winner of the My RØDE Reel 2018 Script Competition, Canada’s Dawson Heistad, was flown to Sydney in April to film his winning script: BUGGED.
Shot on location in Sydney’s Balmain, BUGGED was directed by My RØDE Reel judge Clara Chong and shot by cinematographer Ben Allan ACS.
All the processes involved in the making of BUGGED gave the RØDE Production Team the opportunity to capture behind-the-scenes content and interviews which focus on the various disciplines of filmmaking, from pre-production to post-production, available now on http://www.myrodereel.com.
