who moved to the Australian Outback after his Tour and became an Opal Miner.
His sidekick is Mario a Maltese Aussie he met while in Nam who works the Mine with Clive. A local from a neighbouring mine named Jimi hangs out with them too. Clives found what he thinks is love on his dial up
(when the lines aren't down) Computer through a Chat room...
He's got some Opals to sell and a Girl to meet so he's hitting the Big Smoke, Sydney. Mario & Jimi are going along for the ride too.
Clive's had enough Bad luck in his Life, he also sustained a Head Injury whilst serving, and suffers Flashbacks and irrational bouts of Ugly Behaviour..
You can't help but pity him.
Anyway, lets Hope all works out the way he'd like things too..
Join Clive on the long Drive out of the Desert and meet the people he does on his way to the Big Smoke!
STRONG LANGUAGE SO IF OFFENDED EASILY DONT WATCH.
Thanks!

AWESOME!!

Your work just continues to improve.. great story, and a tribute to the aussie nation. I loved this film, it had so much similarities to the typical aussie stereotype. It's something all should look at for inspiration! Even fellow aussie filmmakers cannot produce something as good as this.. Anyone who gives this less than a 5 should be ashamed for not respecting true aussie spirit.

This is the best thing you have done yet!!!!!! I have to learn how to talk like that. I laughed my arse off at stuff I could barely understand. It has a lot of quick comedy because of that. I loved it. You have to make more like this. CLIVE MUST LIVE ON. Keep this going, man. I want to see a series with Clive as much as possible. I am downloading this.

The three 6's in the movie # alone woulda' got ya' 5 stars! But seriously, TMO's favourite snake-tongued aussie continues to blow us away with biting dialogue and a lush enviornments straight from the land of kango's and the dreaded duck-billed platypus, this time in the guise of a drama(!?).

Clive and his mates pack up their gear and head for the big smoke, Sydney.

Concept - 6 - Heavy on dialogue, but light on plot.
Direction - 8 - Good scenes and sets, though overall quite slow. May have benefitted from tightening the dialogue.
Production - 9 - I loved the attention to Australian detail, like the background sounds and custom backdrops. Top stuff. A few of the VO's were soft in comparison to the others.
Character - 9 - I loved the different characters and their accents. Personally I don't think it needed as much strong language as it had; it doesn't add anything but restricts the potential audience.

Overall, I thought the movie was an excellent portrayal of outback Australian culture and characters. All the best for the future.

Brilliant, the pace is fast as is the comedy. Australia can be proud with a creative genius such as yourself

Brash and breezy and full of Aussie Brio! Loved the non stop natural Aussie rythms in the VO, and you really got a feel of the Oz townships and Outback across.
Ok so not much actually happened, but it's only part one so never mind.
Good Vo and script, good editing and backdrop use, good movie.
Almost 4 star but carried it on to 5 with sheer characterisation and dialogue!
Can you keep it up?
4.6

Brilliant Australian Comedy as only the Aussies can do. I laughed my arse off at the sharply funny dialog. Fantastic background sounds added to the feel of a real location in the film. Also great choices in moody backdrops gave real pop to the atmosphere of the movie. There is something great going on here, great idea brought to the screen, great direction and great voice work. Top notch entertainment all around.

I like the way you use the props in this movie, they make a set look completely different, maiking the sights a little better. I also liked how the voiceovers in this were, fast but you can still understand them, overall not bad at all... The story was a bit confusing, but I managed to get most of it.
