Real Talent is an Australian short film comedy which will be released in April 2018.  Full credits and updates can be found on our page on IMDb.

Real Talent provides a dry look at the "insta culture".

The story is about a young actress undergoes a radical and positive personal transformation. However she has to deal with an unlikely competitor..

Written by executive producer Joseph Crepaldi  of JC Bits Productions, it is directed by the talented Lexie Dent.

Encompassing a cast of young Australian and International actors, Real Talent's plot is for now a secret... however bikinis and French Bulldogs definitely feature in it.  It is really a funny movie.

Real Talent will be initially released only to international Festivals.
