One of the biggest treats I had was getting to see filmmaker John Balazs’ progression partly on social media for his most recent shortfilm, Night Shift. The second I spotted a fight demo he filmed with stunt performer and action actress Zia Kelly and lead actress Adele Elasmar earlier this year, I was instantly sold on its potential for greatness.
The next several months should be an interesting turn of events for filmmaker John Balazs. His last shortfilm, Dancer, was a tremendous milestone for his production banner, Prima Lux, and though it proved to be taxing, needless to say, the choice to go forth into another venture wasn’t as challenging.
Crowdfunding for an inspired project of any kind is likely going to be a difficult hurdle to leap these days. Filmmaker John Balazs is considerably one of the more fortunate ones – having attained what he needed by other mutual means to fulfill what he wanted with his latest filmic venture, Night Shift, and as far as proof of concepts go, audiences are more than welcome to let their imaginations run wild some.

Balazs’s story is far from unique pertaining to others who have faced adversity and/or continue to do so. He’s not over the hump yet, though the past four years have shown tremendous, visible results in his strive for betterment at Prima Lux, and Australia’s film environment in whole, overseeing the strain of facing down hardship with persistence and resolve.
