The Screen Guide

Stand-up comic, media presenter and former art student Peter Berner is swapping banter for brushes in a serious bid for artistic acceptance. He’s decided to tackle the subject he knows and loves best - himself - and enter a self-portrait into the Archibald Prize. This is a video diary of his endeavours from blank canvas to judgement day, including interviews with other artists and critics about the creative process and the background to one of Australia’s highest profile art competitions, and some excruciatingly honest critiques of his work. The result is characteristically irreverent and decidedly revealing.
