The Glue Society is an independent creative collective founded in 1998. It now features 8 writers, artists and directors working out of studios in Sydney and New York. The collective’s work encompasses everything from broadcast entertainment, print and television advertising, film direction and graphic design to art exhibitions, installations and sculpture. The various directors in the collective are represented by Revolver in Australasia, Park Pictures in America, Independent Films in the UK and Wanda in France/Europe.

Bastard (2009) is a music video for Metal On Metal www.myspace.com/nesakykmamai . Two women are competing in a tennis table tournament, but instead of a ping pong ball, they play with a live hand grenade. Back and forth the grenade flies as they stretch and dive to hit it back over the net. The crowd shouts with passion and blood lust. The players keep playing knowing the grenade will go off at any second. The band, who are signed with legendary Skint Records in the UK, originate from Vilnius, Lithuania and since 2005 have been winning awards for their provocative and energetic DJ performances. For their latest single Bastard, they challenged The Glue Society to write and direct a high end clip, which lived up to the provocative title. Of the first collaborative project with Revolver, Glue Society director, Matt Devine says: “I reckon the spot is bastard-ish enough. The guys gave us the ultimate gift - absolute creative freedom to interpret their music. In the end what has happened is the film lifts the track and the track lifts the film – so we reckon it’s been a great long-distance marriage.” CONCEPT& DIRECTION The Glue Society CAMERA Danny Ruhlmann SOUNDTRACK Metal on Metal CAST Belinda Lee, Micky Lung, Austin Holister (Host) EXECUTIVE PRODUCER Michael Ritchie, Revolver Film www.revolverfilm.com PRODUCER Caroline Barry, Revolver Film www.revolverfilm.com VFX PRODUCER Claudia Lecaros, Fuel www.fuelvfx.com EDITOR Stewart Reeves, Guillotine www.guillotine.com.au

Misfit (2009) is a music video for the band 'The Bumblebeez' www.last.fm/music/Bumblebeez , part of a campaign for V Energy Drink www.itallstartswithv.com.au . The story of the clip relates to the idea of finding where you creatively fit in life. A young creative guy leaves home dressed in one of his creations. People around him don’t understand him. And various people attack him. But these reactions inspire him to create his next outfit. The cycle of his misunderstood creativity continues in various locations, until such time as the young guy is discovered by a window dresser at a high end department store.
