Burns Point  

Director: Tim Blackburn

Writer Producer: Chris Blackburn

When a stranger arrives on the remote island of Burns Point, it’s not long before the curious locals figure out he’s on the run from something and someone. Jeremy hides out in some disused houses, but soon encounters the suspicious owner, an ex-policeman and his eccentric and flirtatious daughter-in-law. He quickly gets drawn into their world, but finds his isolation is no sanctuary from the deadly enemy he left behind.


Burns Point - excerpts ftom reviews

"A slow-burn crime melodrama that recalls such significant Australian works as Ray Lawrence’s Lantana and Anna Reeves’ The Oyster Farmer, the coastal-set thriller Burns Point proves a compelling calling-card effort for debutant director Tim Blackburn and his scriptwriter dad, Chris." Screen Space

"The first striking quality of BURNS POINT is its cinematography. With a nicely framed opening wide shot cinematographer Kent Marcus reassures the viewer that they're in capable hands, and from that moment the film plays out in a beautifully stylised way, with as much attention given to the landscape as is given to the characters. The camera captures the unfolding drama in a dignified manner and resists the temptation to exploit the cliched shaky-cam style."

"The thematic heritage, protagonist’s vengeful motivations and vast, photogenic backdrop (captured in all its widescreen beauty by rising DOP talent, Kent Marcus) posits Blackburn’s film as a ‘revenge western’ update darkened with shades of film noir." Screen Space
