Jacobson Brothers Talk Family, Financing, and Their New Film, Brothers’ Nest


They’re best known for their 2006 comedy classic Kenny, and now Clayton and Shane Jacobson have reunited on screen for Brothers’ Nest, a brilliant dark comedy that’s sure to subvert the expectations of Australian audiences for all the right reasons.

We sat down with the brothers on their tour bus for a hilarious chat about how they made the film happen, why it’s been 12 years since Clayton last directed, and the innovative funding model that made what we called “one of Australia’s best films in years” a reality.

Brothers’ Nest releases Australia wide today, June 21st.
