While many locals may know her as the receptionist at The Wright Physio, the bar chick at the old Bronte RSL or the waitress at Randwick Rugby Club, Clovelly actress Alex Stammell is about make a name for herself in a new role as Alisha, a strait-laced Eastern Suburbs school girl gone bad, in a recently released crowd-funded web series called Shit Creek.

The eight episode series follows the story of two brothers who inherit a debt to the mob after their small time crook father kicks the bucket in a freak accident at the pub. They’ve got six weeks to cough up a hundred grand or they’ll find themselves without their favourite appendages, courtesy of a psychopathic gun-for-hire and a pair of rusty hedge clippers.

The series is produced by Sundown Picturehouse, the founders of which, having encountered the difficulties of the Australian film industry after graduating from NIDA, AFTRS and UNSW, decided to take things into their own hands to create a piece of work that is full of energy and originality on a budget of less than $10,000.

Shit Creek explores the extremes an individual will go to protect themselves from harm, and how many others they’re willing to hurt along the way. With an all-star cast including the lovely Miss Stammell, you’d be silly not to check it out. Jump on to to see what everyone is talking about.
