With The National Treasures Series in mind, Clip’D was launched in June 2016.

Clip’D brings together Australia’s finest acting & songwriting talent, in short, narrated films telling stories of love, loss & everything in between.

This initial film series pays tribute to the wonderful words of Nick Cave (permission kindly granted).
