Former Big Brother presenter Mike Goldman wrote, co-produced and stars in Shooting Goldman, a hoax feature-length documentary.

Filmed over four years and produced and directed by Tony Prescott, the film follows Goldman as he struggles to break out of the reality TV show shadow and pursues his ambition to become a film actor.

His delusion escalates till he isn.t sure what is and isn.t real anymore. He becomes increasingly unsure of himself and begins to think his family and friends are actors.

Mike.s father Grant, a radio veteran who hosts the breakfast show on Sydney.s 2Sm, appears in the film, leading to some emotional scenes.

Last week Australians in Film hosted a premiere in Los Angeles at the Paramount Studios attended by producers, agents, managers and talent. .It was a capacity screening and the reaction was phenomenal,. Goldman tells If.

Bill Hunter bio in the works

14 July 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Actor-director-writer David Field plans to pen a biography of his great mate Bill Hunter.

Field revealed his plans on Facebook, prompting numerous offers of help from colleagues and friends of the much-loved actor who died in 2011, aged 71.

Close buddies for more than 25 years, Hunter and Field often discussed co-writing a book but never got around to it.

.We were having too much fun,. Field tells If. He may use the title suggested by Hunter, which trades on one of the actor's favourite expressions, .Stand Where and Say What?.

Field first met Hunter, whose credits include Newsfront, Gallipoli, Strictly Ballroom, Muriel's Wedding, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, Road to Nhill, Crackerjack, The Pacific and The Cup, at the Belvoir Theatre.

They worked together twice, in Laurie McInnes. 1993 black-and-white drama Broken Highway and in Alkinos Tsilimidos.s 2004 film Tom White, which starred Colin Friels as an architect whose life unravels after a nervous breakdown. »
