In a world gone to hell, best keep a sense of humour. 

Torrid Films’ current slate of projects plumbs the depths of the human condition, Australia’s love affair with real estate, office politics on mobility scooters and close combat wordplay. We believe in not taking the world at large TOO seriously because it’s better to laugh, and more often at ourselves.
