  3. 'Buddies' is the most requested title on australianscreen online. You'll be pleased to know that Umbrella Entertainment plan to release it on DVD for the first time later this year (tentatively July 2009). So keep an eye out for it! Glad to read you're enjoying the site, Keith.

  5. I worked on this movie - the gaffer.
    Much credit for its appeal, apart from john dingwall's and arch nicholson's efforts must go to the cinematographer david eggby.

    Have revisted emerald where it was shot - not much has changed.

    Can't wait for the dvd!

  11. Released in Emerald @ 9:00 am Thursday 2nd July, I had already pre-ordered 4 copies.
    I watched it at 3:00 pm the day it was released
    Better than the Channel 9 broadcast from quite a few years ago (No adverts & No bits cut out)
    A MUST SEE movie
