(MIFF 2008, Backbeat)

Orbit 2008 takes a surprising spin around everything that's fresh and exciting in Australian and New Zealand music videomaking. Haunting and longing, sweet and satirical; these clips run the gamut from lost eyeballs, cemetery parties and walkabouts to beautiful Fitzroy girls on bicycles. Join the revolution!
