Spider (2007)

Spider was written by Nash Edgerton and David Michod, directed by Nash Edgerton and produced by Nicole O'Donohue. Spider is a 9-minute short that is all about fun and games until something happens. It seems like just an ordinary day for this young Aussie couple. Sure, they've had a bit of a row, but flowers and chocolates should patch-up all that. Then they'll be able to move on and continue on like normal... Edgerton has more than a few surprises up his sleeve in constructing this totally captivating relationship drama.

It has screened at numerous international film festivals including Telluride, Prague and Cork Film Festivals, and domestically at both Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals. Spider recently won the Jury Prize at the AFI/Los Angeles Film Festival and won the audience award at both the Sydney Film Festival and Prague Short Film Festival. It is the fourth short film directed by Nash Edgerton that has screened at Sundance since 2000.
Since his short DEADLINE, which won the top prize at Tropfest in 1997, Nash has directed a number of award-winning short films, music videos and commercials featuring actors such as Rose Byrne, Joel Edgerton, Radha Mitchell, Kestie Morassi and Dan Wyllie.
The action packed trailer for Tropfest called THE PITCH was followed by the horror/thriller FUEL and the stunt-driven LUCKY, all shorts that screened to acclaim locally and abroad at festivals including Sundance, Berlin, Aspen, PiFan, St Kilda and Flickerfest.
His career in music videos has won him various awards and ARIA nominations for work with leading Australian artists including Ben Lee, Eskimo Joe, Missy Higgins, Toni Collette, Pacifier and The Sleepy Jackson.
