Nice Package

The best things come in small packages in fast-paced Australian gangster comedy, Nice Package. Starring Dwayne Cameron (The Tribe) and Ashley Lyons (Home and Away) and written and directed by ACS Award Gold winning Dan Macarthur, this hysterical action-packed caper makes its DVD debut since its initial release in 2014. When professional thief Frostie (Cameron) is caught stealing a precious package, he is forced to take a feisty young woman, Michelle (Isabella Tannock) hostage. Unluckily for him, she knows how to fight back. When he takes her back to his gay best friend's (Leon Cain - The Suicide Theory) house, he can't bring himself to dispense of her, despite pressure from his deranged, yoga-obsessed boss. Now the three of them must face an eccentric rabble of thugs who will do anything to get their hands on the mysterious package. Produced by Melanie Poole (The Today Show) this fast-paced riot of colourful characters, cool music and razor sharp dialogue is Pulp Fiction meets The Hangover, with a dose of The Coen Brothers for extra chaos.

Fresh Dressed

The birth and history of hip hop has been well documented, from the music, block parties and digging in the crates for breaks to graffiti and breakdancing, all proving rich subjects for documentaries. But the accompanying fashion, the groundbreaking styles sported by early artists and fans of the genre, whose rush to find new threads, kicks and accessories went beyond Adidas sneakers and tracksuits to customised, graffiti jackets, Kangol hats and far, far beyond, hasn't been given the attention it deserves...Until now.

Fly feature documentary Fresh Dressed charts the innovative, weird and wonderful styles worn by hip-hop artists, rappers and crews from the inception of the movement through to the multi-million dollar fashion empires built by current megastars such as Sean "Puffy" Combs.

With funky, fat-laced Adidas, Kangol hats, and Cazal shades, a totally original look was born - Fresh - and it came from the black and brown side of town where another cultural force was revving up in the streets to take the world by storm. Hip-hop, and its aspirational relationship to fashion, would become such a force on the market that Tommy Hilfiger, in an effort to associate their brand with the cultural swell, would drive through the streets and hand out free clothing to kids on the corner.

As Kanye West - one of the many rap icons interviewed for Sacha Jenkins' Fresh Dressed - says: "Being fresh is more important than having money. The entire time I grew up, I only wanted money so I could be fresh."

Sean "Puffy" Combs, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas and many more all wax lyrical on the importance of being Fresh Dressed in this fascinating film, due in cinemas on 30 October 2015, courtesy of Dogwoof, following its London Film Festival Premiere. The film will then make its DVD bow on 9 November 2015.
