DRUNK MONKEY JUSTIN DRAPE IS SONY TROPFEST FINALIST


Justin Drape, creative partner of Three Drunk Monkeys, has been chosen as a finalist for Sony Tropfest 2007, the world’s largest short film festival. His film, titled Boston (written, directed and produced by Drape) will also be screened on free-to-air TV, online and mobile as part of a new partnership between Tropfest, the Nine Network and ninemsn.
Justin Drape, Scott Nowell along with director Tim Bullock have also created a concept for a television comedy/drama series. They pitched it to Andrew Denton who bought the rights on the spot, and now, with Denton’s company, are in negotiations with a major television network.
Drape was an award winning creative at Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney, before leaving to form Three Drunk Monkeys with creative partner Scott Nowell and former Saatchi’s New Business and Group Account Director, Mark Green. Their clients currently include Foxtel Digital, Hopscotch Films, W Channel, PepsiCo NZ, Inspire, Vitaplex and French body care company, L’Occitane.
Three Drunk Monkeys have also directed television commercials for leading international brands including Mountain Dew, Pepsi Max, Lynx and Foxtel. In 2006 they wrote and directed Losing Face, an award winning short film that screened at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and was later aired on The Comedy Channel.
With Hopscotch Films – Australia’s leading independent film distributor – Three Drunk Monkeys have formed a joint venture company weaving opportunities in film and branded entertainment.

great news.

but surely talking about that Denton pilot should be ommitted from future press releases? Its been like two years now and no TV network has bought it yet.

Plus the only 'branded entertainment' on air so far is 'Joker Poker', 'Shopping for Love' and other woeful late night programs. When will we realise that people want to watch QUALITY PROGRAMS and not fucking badly written, ill conceived ADS?

TV shows aren't like commercials, mate. They can take years to turn around.

Keep at it guys, you're doing what we all talk about and never actually get around to.
