"(Disappearance in a Minor Role) is gorgeous". - www.cvltnation.com

"Break its endosymbiotic relationship from the visual side of the film and the music in each part holds up as it shifts through tension, moodiness, melancholy, anxiety, apprehension, despair and more in what is essentially a more downtempo and drone manifestation of the post metal found on their album or in The Auteur". - www.echoesanddust.com

“It’s your job to make the fiction real. Be creative,” says one character to another in...the third installment of Dumbsaint‘s video triptych. And that’s exactly what the Sydney band has been doing all these months: releasing a work of intrigue. These days, it’s harder to get noticed in any creative field; other artists should learn a lesson from this release, as the extra effort pays off". - www.acloserlisten.com


"Four women become involved with a mysterious organisation that purports to connect them with acting roles they can truly “disappear” into. The short film series focuses on three of these aspiring actresses – Gabrielle, Sara and Celeste – as their stories diverge and realign, looking at the dramatic ways in which each of their lives are altered by this strange experience. As the women experiment with their new characters and fight to escape old bonds, we learn more about the enigmatic company and gradually discover just how far it will go in order to maintain authenticity. Disappearance In A Minor Role is a three-part film series about reinventions and reprisals. A story of luck, loose ends and the sinister underside of ambition".

The enigmatic first and second instalments, Part III: Celeste and Part II: Sara, were released online in March and May respectively. Deliberately released in reverse order, the final piece, Part l: Gabrielle, acts as both beginning and end to Disappearance In A Minor Role – answering many of the puzzling questions raised throughout the unfolding film series, while inevitably prompting some new ones. Written, filmed and edited entirely by us, complete film is the result of 90 hours of location shooting and 450 hours of editing over twelve months. This marks a turning point, not only in completing the elaborate, fragmented narrative of the Disappearance In A Minor Role series, but setting a new technical standard for our film work.
