The film clip for Billy was shot over an intense weekend out at John’s hometown of Nundle in New South Wales.
We shot 3 film clips in 2 days - each unique and special to John’s music.
The storyline of “Billy” leant itself to a narrative film - a story of two lovers that had lost their way, and found each other in the end.
With the time constraints, we shot the majority of the scenes at the Peel Inn in Nundle - there we had a hotel room for “Mary’s” scenes, and the beer garden with stage for the most of the others. “Billy’s” scenes were shot just outside the township at the actor’s own house.
The time of the day was also very important - we aimed for late in the day to capture that golden hour glow.
I’m so proud of this clip.
From John’s Bio: John Krsulja, or John K, known to friends, discovered his love for song writing and performing as a busker on the streets of Trieste, Italy whilst travelling through Europe.
Originally from the Sutherland Shire, John K left in 1995 for years of travelling around the world and Australia before settling in Tamworth, Australia’s Country Music Capital.
“I took the time to travel ‘round until I found a place, a place that’s me”, says John K. That place is Nundle, at The DAG Sheep Station where he and his wife Belinda with their two little girls Brooke and Jade now live. It was here at The DAG, inspired by all the artists he met over the years, he resurrected his 20 year love for song writing and performing.
John ‘K’ Krsulja has now completed his Debut Album – Travellin’, produced by friend and mentor Karl Broadie recorded at the Cliff Tops of Sydney and at The DAG Sheep Station, Nundle. Travellin’ is a collection of songs spanning over 20 years, including co writes with Golden Guitar Winners Luke O’Shea and Lachlan Bryan and the Award Winning Karl Broadie
