Michael Williams – Escape from a 90’s educational CD-ROM!

Directed by Russell Fletcher

Escape from a 90s educational CD-ROM! Is a story of Michael Williams, a 12-year-old boy who was zapped inside his copy of Hello Learning: Aussie Edition 1994 a state-of-the-art CD-ROM (that rivalled Microsoft Encarta) and was never released.
A kid could really lose a weekend (or two decades) exploring Hello Learning with over 30,000 articles, thousands of images, hundreds of videos and MIDI files of every single national anthem.

After 23 years and knowing nothing of the modern world, Williams is still trapped in the CD-ROM where his friends are pictures of historical people, his job is reading as much as he can and his free time is spent writing a musical about Colonel Sanders.
After discovering some corrupted files that are fast spreading, Williams realises that time is running out and nobody will save him – so he decides that it is time to Escape from a 90s educational CD-ROM!

Celebrating over a decade in comedy, Michael Williams has performed all over Australia and the UK with his unique combination of visual jokes and he also hosts two popular podcasts – It’s A Duck Blur and Pop Quiz Hot Shot.
