More than six months in production, ‘Starting from Scratch’ follows busker Brenton Torrens from the street to the stage.

Nightly, Brenton plies his trade in the neon forest of Adelaide’s West End, collecting money from passers-by and promoting his debut on-stage show. Director and writer Jared Nicholson follows Brenton as the live gig draws nearer, creating an intimate and emotional portrait of a person with an uncommon kind of courage.
