DON PERCY’S MAKEOVER A TROPFEST TRIUMPH!
MELBOURNE, VICTORIA. (DEC 16, 2013)
Victorian film-maker Don Percy’s film MAKEOVER was the only TROPFEST 22 film to be consistently ranked in the top two positions taking both 2nd place in the JUDGING VOTE, and 2nd place as PEOPLE’S CHOICE – proving its popularity with both the official judges and the viewing public.
MAKEOVER is a colourful cartoon-stylised (and slightly twisted) romantic comedy that looks at our obsession with retaining a youthful appearance. It features veteran actor TOM TRAVERS in a performance that allows him to show-off his great comic abilities. TOM is supported by the wonderfully talented young actors CHARLIE RANGER and KRISTEN CONDON. RITA CRISPEN also appears in what might be considered a ‘cameo’!
Don Percy says he’s ‘delighted’ with the result, and is confident it will lead to further ‘collaborations and projects’. The film MAKEOVER, and the 15 other TROPFEST 22 finalists, can currently be viewed by going to the TROPFEST channel on YouTube, or via the TROPFEST web site.
Horrie, a lonely widower, misses his wife (and dog) and decides it’s time to start dating again. He finds the perfect woman via a singles magazine, but before they meet, undertakes an elaborate and unconventional makeover. Can he keep up the façade, or will he be found out? Romantic comedy.
