“Bad Habits” was the first feature film that I auditioned for and when I entered the room I remember seeing 5 people all alongside each other randomly asking me questions and to be honest it was quite nerve wracking and exciting at the same time. The Director quietly observing me although when I asked questions about who his influences were, his eyes lit up saying “Argento”.
The film took a total of two weeks to film with a very tight budget and the DOP (Director of Photography) was strong in character and would drive the cast to work well as a group. Everyone was amazing to work with and I would definitely not hesitate to work with any cast member again. The result was a superb film on a limited budget.
Enclosed below are some great reviews from the film:
A list of the awards that the “Bad Habits” film has won:
WINNER – Best Australian Feature Film, Sexy International Film Festival 2009
WINNER – Best Screenplay, Melbourne Underground Film Festival 2009
WINNER – Best Actress (Sandra Casa), Melbourne Underground Film Festival 2009
“Stylish and surreal this film reigns supreme in its atmosphere.” Bad Habits follows the nocturnal encounters of Sister Marie Fenche (Sandra Casa in an award-winning performance). Violent, surreal, erotic and strange, “Bad Habits takes the nunsploitation genre by its feet and drops it on its head.”
A journey through the byways and back alleys of a mind out of balance.
Sister Marie Fenche is a woman on the verge of collapse. Barely able to distinguish reality from fantasy, Marie’s life is thrown into turmoil when she awakens one morning, alone with a corpse in the bathtub. Is she being set up of did she kill the man herself? The truth is not even Marie knows for sure.
