Scarecrow is a short drama film shot on 16mm film at Griffith University and won Best Film at the 2010 First Year Griffith University Film Awards.

A Scarecrow sits in a field, guarding crops, day after day. Bored with his existence he dreams of something more: to see what is beyond the horizon and escape the fate of eventually rotting away.

One day, the motivation to escape comes as the Farmer walks past and drops a postcard from an exotic location near him. Breaking free from his constraints the Scarecrow must escape the farm and the watchful gaze of the farmer, whilst also helping a lonely girl scarecrow rediscover the lust for life.
