We want to capture this special time for Melbourne music and explore what makes this city such fertile ground for excellent independent music.


Gizzfest, Melbourne Showgrounds 2017


This documentary is an inside look into Melbourne’s thriving independent music community.  Globally recognised as one of the top music cities in the world the film highlights what set Melbourne apart from the rest of Australia and the world. ‘Now Sound’ isn’t just a total love letter to Melbourne the film explores relevant topics within the music industry and the importance and power of grass roots ideas filtering up into the wider industry.  


Tobias Willis (Director) and Marcus Rimondini (Producer) truly felt that there was so much exciting movement in the music scene Melbourne someone had to make a film document of 2016 - 2017. This film has been a self funded and independent venture minus a successful funding grant from Creative Victoria mid 2017. That funding helped us complete the first edit of the film. A much needed injection of funds will help us get the film completed and mastered for a MIFF submission march 2018.

This film is Tobias Willis and Marcus Rimondini’s honest & personal take on the scene here in Melbourne. To this day they have been working on this film for 18 months, filmed and edited 100’s of artist’s, interviews, festivals, shows & have found there is so much talent and amazing people doing great things in Melbourne it would be impossible to capture it all.


Friendships, 2017

Jen Cloher in the studio 2016


This is a film about the community by the community we have been overwhelmed with the response and support thus far. Melbourne is very proud of it’s music scene and it’s such a huge part of what makes this city great, we set out to document this special time for music & we would love to have it released.

Budget Overview

The funds will be used for mastering and finishing of the film. This will include a colour grade and sound mix to do all the wonderful music justice.  We will need quite a large team with various skills and use of various studios around Australia to pull this off.  Also, getting our message out will require an injection of funds to ensure it is seen and heard by an audience. A portion of this budget will go towards marketing, promotional material and film festival festvial entry.


Courtney Barnett, The Tote 2016

Potential Challenges

We are racing to finish this film for late submission to Melbourne International Film Festival which close on the 31st of March. There is still much work to be done in film editing as well as sound mixing and colouring. This injection of funds will help us stay a float, relive some pressure and finish the film in time for a hopeful successful application.


It’s an incredibly tight deadline and will require some seriously long hours but we are committed to bringing this film to screens in 2018.
