Tender is a short comedy which was produced in Brisbane, Queensland by independent filmmaker Liz Tomkins and stars Australian stage, television and film actor Mark Conaghan.[1]

The film was developed and produced under the Screen Australia Raw Nerve Short Film Initiative offered by QPIX[2] in association with Screen Development Australia and Screen Queensland.


Tender focuses on the socially awkward 'Frank' who will stop at nothing to get a promotion. Not even the office bully can stand in his way, as Frank gives a new meaning to the corporate term ‘head-hunting’.
