There are as many possums as there are people in Melbourne. With its tasty European trees and lavish rooftop hiding spots, the inner city is a haven for urban possums forced out of their native habitats. But with populations quickly climbing, possum real estate is at a premium and its no wonder the mischievous marsupials and their human neighbours are on the verge of war.

Director Steve Westh has been scouring Melbourne looking for the best characters – people and possums and we hope the project wlll go into production in 2012. The project is being developed with the assistance of Screen Australia.
