A freshly-finished local film is hitting the big screen tomorrow (Wed 3/1) night, with brothers Dominic and Alex Russell hosting the premiere screening of Come Correct at Rockhampton's BCC Cinemas.

The free event kicks off at 7:30 ahead of the screening itself at 8pm, followed by a Q&A session and afterparty at the Giddy Goat, where the film was shot.

We caught up with one of the stars of the action-infused comedy, Brad Villiers, to get the inside goss.:

"It's an interesting film to explain.  It's the story of a guy who goes into a bar and orders a drink, and is looked down upon for the drink he orders.

"He ends up having a cocktail shake-off with the barman.  It's a battle of good versus evil."

It may not have hit the screen yet, but the film's already getting noticed - Director of Photography Peter Szilvestzer won silver in the Australian Cinematographers Society's Queensland awards for his work on the film.

"It's extremely well shot," Brad says, "and it's going to look fantastic on the big screen on Wednesday night."

Brad has a wealth of theatre experience behind him, most recently in RMU's production of Les Mis in late 2017, but says Come Correct is his first film role.

"It was an amazing experience, it really was.  It was a professional set with professional people.

"It's true what they say - you don't get paid to act, you get paid to wait around.  There's a lot of that while they're moving cameras and setting things up. 

"It was a great experience and I'd love to do more of it."

Director Alex Russell is back in Australia for tomorrow night's screening, taking a break from his current role in US law show S.W.A.T.  If you have posh TV, you can catch that show later this month when it comes to Australia on Fox8.
