A Bad Influence is the debut feature film from Andreas Toumbas. Described as a passion project, the film was written by Andreas at the beginning of 2018. He wanted to make a feature film with the resources he had, which wasn't very much. The movie was filmed roughly once a week over six months in the 2018/19 summer with a very small and passionate cast and crew, and is filmed almost entirely in 17 long days at his parents' home in the south-western suburbs of Sydney.
The film's mission is to bring light to the serious problem of binge drinking and the negative impacts it brings to individuals and the community. The movie is a very personal project and deals with the issues surrounding alcohol abuse and mental illness (primarily social anxiety), and how the two are related. Furthermore, it explores how alcohol is often used as a social lubricant, but can quickly make us anti-social. It is a very raw film about a very common issue we face in society.
It is set for release in 2023.
