Bloody Henry is a short film that brings a serious issue of Alzheimers disease (a form of Dementia) into a light hearted suspenseful comedy with a very unexpected final event. It captures what people go through everyday with our ageing population and tries to capture these moments in a humble, sweet way. At the same time, it also shows the life of women that live alone in their homes in fear of what happens when they realize they are not the only one in the house.
It was filmed by Producer/Director, Angelique Papadelias. It was shot in Enmore, the Inner West of Sydney, Australia (December 2011) and it appears to be a suspense film, that actually ends as a comedy. Bloody Henry is 6:59 in length and available on PAL and NTSC. The film stars two very successful Australian Actors/Actresses, Tina Bursill – playing Jane, and Kevin Healy – playing Henry. The film has recently been made available for complimentary viewing on You tube. (see below)

STARRING THE TALENTED:
Tina Bursill – Jane
Tina’s most rewarded role was her achievement in best supporting actress as Louise Carter in the TV Series Skyways. Tina had other outstanding and memorable roles as Sonia Stevens in Prisoner, Billie Russell in A Single Life, Margaret Hill in Willing and Abel and the list goes on.
It was an honour to have Tina as the main lead in Bloody Henry to which her performance was remarkable.

Kevin brings a sense of enjoyment and experience when he is on the screen. Lucky enough to have Kevin grace us in his performance in Bloody Henry, he came to the production with years and years of experience as an Australian Actor.
His performances included roles as Mr. Ferguson in Water Rats, Bert King in Home and Away, Mr. Cummins and Mr. Grattan in All Saints, Sammy in Barracuda, Jock Martin in Now and Forever, Sir Humphrey Moore in Carson’s Law and the list goes on.

PRODUCTION SHOTS – BEHIND THE SCENES
Production is always about making a long day, a little fun so that everyone walks away exhausted, but with a smile. Bloody Henry is currently making it’s way around the film circuit. As the Director of the film, I was honoured to work with such an experienced Cast and Crew team. I would highly recommend each of them for any production.
