Storyline

The film appears at first to be a documentary. Bish, a final year film student, is shooting the documentary for his graduating project. Things change when an unspecified "incident" wipes out the population of Western Australia leaving Bish as the only survivor. At first he enjoys his new found wealth and power, stealing cars, playing golf in expensive mansions and breaking into an Army base to steal an arsenal of weaponry including a Field Gun which he uses to shell the houses of people he didn't like when they were alive. Bish is just starting to become lonely when the zombies arrive and he finds a new lease of life in the challenge of survival. He is preparing to leave Perth when he makes contact with another survivor, Sarah, on the other side of town and he finds the true purpose that had eluded him in his former life - to get to Sarah and get her out of the city. However as the city is now overflowing with zombies this proves to be more than a little difficult. Written by Anonymous

Low-budget fun
1 April 2010 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's unfair to judge a film for what it doesn't set out to achieve. Those who compare this film to "Two Fists One Heart" have really not been exposed to the wide range of films made in Australia.

"I Am Bish" is low-budget fun. It's certainly unconventional in style - the plot is disjointed, the visual effects are deliberately tacky, the combination of interview and drama is unusual - but that's the nature of the beast. It's not "the worst film ever". Bishop has set out to make a patchwork spoof and he entertains. It's a crude, comic romp and those wanting more should look elsewhere.

Few features are made in Perth. There are a number of films that have received funds from the local government funding body in recent years and still haven't gone into production. We must support those filmmakers who have the courage to make films and at their own expense. Bishop is a confident emerging director and deserves our encouragement.
