25 Tracks

a 55 minute musical documentary; completed September 2016

"What do you get when you combine two talented songwriters, one whose influences include The Sound of Music and one who warms up by riffing Black Sabbath on his guitar, and set them inside a 1957 rail car with the ambitious goal of writing, recording and releasing a new song every two weeks for a year?

25 Tracks, an uber-hip, foot-stomping documentary from the industrial west of Melbourne, Australia's music capital. Produced and directed by Fiona Cochrane, this uptempo film offers a great variety of musical flavors and heaps of insight into the songwriting process. Musicians and music fans alike will find much to admire here.

True indie musicians at heart, songwriters Cath Sheahan and Nick Larkins are unencumbered by the pressure of a record label, freeing them to follow their muses and create great music for music's sake.

And they do."
New Hope Film Festival, USA, 2017.


25 TRACKS celebrates the community of Melbourne independent musicians, and features many different singers, some of whom are known, and a lot more who should be.


producer/director – Fiona Cochrane
cinematographer – Zbigniew Friedrich
