rntm: runtime pictures
Hello! And welcome welcome! We’re really looking forward to sharing our work with you!
For those of you who are new to rntm: runtime pictures, we are indie creatives based in Sydney, Australia. We love all things visual (film, TV, web series, commercial, art, photography, interactive media) and look forward to discussing your project with you over a coffee (our shout!).
It’s great connecting with other creatives, so if you feel like a collaboration is in order, please do get in touch.
A little about Tony Radevski, the owner and creative director of rntm:
Tony is an independent Australian writer/director/producer/artist/etc, living and working on the land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation (Sydney).
There are two parts to his life.
Here begins Part A:
Tony started in documentary, directing The Prodigal Son for SBS. Funded by Screen Australia and Screen NSW, it screened internationally and won Best Short Documentary at the 2006 IF Awards and Most Popular Film at Flickerfest. Other documentaries include Broken (Sydney Film Festival), Part One: Love (nominated for Best Short Documentary at the St Kilda Short Film Festival 2013) and produced and co-illustrated the animated documentary Chip, which won an AFI/AACTA ‘Social Shorts’ Award in 2015.

Tony's work in animation includes the Screen Australia-funded short film Ephemeral, which they wrote and directed/produced with animator Jongsu Oh. It screened at the 2008 Dendy Awards and won Most Innovative film. It premiered at Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film and was a finalist in the Best Animation category at the 2008 ATOM Awards and St Kilda Film Festival, and sold to television.
Tony then took a long hiatus.... about 3 years... travelled, worked on odd jobs, didn't take life too seriously, enjoyed relationships, didn't enjoy them, ran away from himself, was forced away from himself, better understood himself and eventually came back... with a renewed sense of self and rejuvenated passion for visual storytelling.
Here begins Part B:
In 2015, Tony's short animation Hole won Best Film and Best Screenplay at the 2015 Mardi Gras Film Festival's My Queer Career. It was a finalist and Australia’s representative film in the Iris Prize (UK), the world’s largest gay and lesbian short film prize.
In 2016, Tony completed the funded fiction short film Dedo, supported by MetroScreen, Screen Australia and the ABC. It screened at Flickerfest and on ABC TV in early 2017. Tony then finished work on the short film, Pilè, which is based on a personal experience from their childhood. It premiered in competition at Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany and won Best Short Fiction Film at the 2019 ATOM Awards. He also directed and animated the short documentary Fences, which screened in competition at Antenna Documentary Film Festival and then at Cucalorus Film Festival in the US and was Highly Commended for Documentary at the 2018 Canberra Short Film Festival.
In 2017, Tony was selected for Berlinale Talents, an initiative of the Berlin International Film Festival. His project, Risen, was also selected for development in the Berlinale Talents’ Short Film Station, the only Australian project that year.
Risen received Screen Australia funding for a proof of concept and also for the development of the TV series, as part of the Hot Shots Plus initiative. In 2020, the film was invited to screen at the Slamdance Film Festival / ArcLight Cinemas Hollywood LA showcase "EMERGENCE: A Discovery of New Filmmakers". It was also selected for FIAPF-accredited Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.
In 2021, Risen won BEST SCI-FI FILM at the Oscar and BAFTA accredited L.A. Shorts International Film Festival.
In 2022, Risen was nominated for three awards at St Kilda Film Festival, including Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Young Actor.
