"Bluey" - directed by Escapee Rich Jeffery
Rich was the director on season two of Bluey, a TV series which Rich describes as "made by a bunch of incredibly hard working and talented artists of different disciplines", and "the brain child of Joe Brumm - an immensely talented writer and director".

Rich has been working on the show in Australia for the past two years, and it is now coming to screens on TVNZ on demand, as well as NZ prime time TV.

Blue Heeler Dog
Bluey is the story of a "loveable and inexhaustible six-year-old Australian Blue Heeler dog", and is made by a team of artists in Brisbane, Australia.
