You guys seen this? I just happened upon it via Google:

MAD MAX 1 - The dangerous pursuit of excellence.

This is a background page of how the Bushcraft Library evolved.

( web designer morphs to video producer morphs to film editor )

Like many of my young colleages I stopped making money in 1978 to work on a shoe-string movie project titled Mad Max. At the end of the main shoot I offered a charity deal to Byron Kennedy to screen eight hours of rushes in my small film editing facility. I was so amazed by the footage and the performances I saw through the projection port that I offered to cut it for almost nothing. And guess what? Byron accepted! Just like the Toecutter said - 'This is a threshold moment, Johnny'.
