Design Notes : Oddly enough, before starting work on the concept poster art for Gravy, I had been introduced to the earlier productions of Grogan Films a few years previously via another film related client: the Travelin' Trasharama Short Film Fester-val, first in 2006 with their Plantastis Chloroplasm featuring Matt Bissett-Johnson and Kym Davies, and then again in 2008 with the hilarious Heartbreak Motel :) featuring Matt Bissett-Johnson as The John, Darren Casey as The Hard Man and Mark Lycette as "little Lord Fauntleroy"

Additional Notes : John Jarratt (Wolf Creek, Picnic at hanging rock) is quoted @ FANGORIA.COM as having 3 films 'on the go': GRAVY, a mad contemporary comedy; BACK OF NOWHERE, the true story of a 61-year-old farmer who just turns up and wins the ultra-marathon from Sydney to Melbourne; and PASSING WINDS, a comedy/Western, a cross between CROCODILE DUNDEE and BLAZING SADDLES.
The pre production poster and the film's information memorandum features a species of psychoactive toad (Bufo marinus) renowned in Australia as a devastating introduced pest, the Cane Toad
, alias the Giant Neotropical Toad, Dominican Toad or the Giant Marine Toad, In Trinidadian its commonly called Crapaud. Bufotenin--5-hydroxy-dimethyltryptamine (5-HO-DMT or 5-OH-DMT), one of the chemicals excreted by the cane toad, is classified as a Class 1 drug under the Criminal Code Regulations of the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia, alongside heroin and cannabis (which is stupid -- nobody has ODed on delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, but I digress). The effects of bufotenin are similar to that of mild poisoning; the stimulation, which includes mild hallucinations, is only supposed to last under an hour...only.

Back In 1955, Howard D. Fabing & J. Robert Hawkins administered 5-hydroxy-dimethyltryptamine intravenously @ doses of up to 16 mg to prison inmates at Ohio State Penitentiary (Conditions in the prison have been described as "primitive") . A purpling of the face was seen in these tests attributed to toxic blood circulation. One subject given 1 mg reported "a tight feeling in the chest" and prickling "as if he had been jabbed by needles." This was accompanied by a "fleeting sensation of pain in both thighs and a mild nausea." Another subject given 2 mg reported "tightness in his throat". He had tightness in the stomach, tingling in pretibial areas, and developed a purplish hue in the face indicating blood circulation problems. He vomited after 3 minutes. Another subject given 4 mg complained of "chest oppression" and that "a load is pressing down from above and my body feels heavy." The subject also reported "numbness of the entire body" and "a pleasant Martini feeling-my body is taking charge of my mind". The subject reported he saw red spots passing before his eyes and red-purple spots on the floor, and the floor seemed very close to his face. Within 2 minutes these visual effects were gone, and replaced by a yellow haze, as if he were looking through a lens filter. Fabing and Hawkins commented that bufotenin's psychedelic effects were "reminiscent of LSD and mescaline but develop and disappear more quickly, indicating rapid central action and rapid degradation of the drug".
