A Word from Nick Hallam
Director of "BROKEN ALLEGIANCE"
One of my very first memories is of my parents taking me to see Star Wars as a four year old. I was overwhelmed by the experience and so thrilled by George Lucas's ground breaking film that from that very moment, I knew I wanted to be a film maker.
I began with Super 8 at the age of nine, and eventually moved into video. Every school holidays I’d be out somewhere shooting my latest blockbuster with friends, usually ending with a lounge room premiere.
After high school I studied filmmaking and media for a few years. Bit by bit I began to learn the craft, always dreaming of one day directing my first feature film as I slogged it out on student short films in every crew role going. For the past ten years I have worked professionally in the film and TV industry in various production roles, from sound and camera to producing and directing independent documentaries and shorts.
Broken Allegiance, based around the Star Wars universe, is my most ambitious project to date. As producer and director, it has involved months of around-the-clock planning to produce a work that is ultimately a homage to the film that inspired me all those years ago to pick up a camera. Working with a dedicated cast and crew, it has been our aim to produce a quality fan film, not only with stunning visuals but also substance to its story and characters. I hope you enjoy!
