Danny Philippou, Michael Philippou

16 September 2022
Danny and Michael Philippou were born and raised in Pooraka. Their love of action and special effects led to them establishing the RackaRacka channel on Youtube, which boasts 6.6 million subscribers and over 1.1 billion individual views. In 2015 they won the Streamy Award for the Best International Youtube Channel, and an AACTA Award for Best Online Video. Variety describes their online content as “a disquieting blend of homemade slasher pics, gruesome film-and-video-game parodies and a homicidal Ronald McDonald doppelganger” but this debut film announces them as filmmakers to watch.
