Fallers is a short film by Australian director David Lawrence, set for release in late 2006.


Wentelteefje demonstrates his model to the class.

Fallers is the story of Wentelteefje, an anthropomorphic dolphin and architectural student. The narrative centres around Wentelteefje's ambition to construct the largest set of stairs ever built, and the subsequent attempts by jealous classmates Samuel, Kenneth, and Feloneimius (an alcoholic cat with laser gun turrets for ears) to thwart his efforts.

Wentelteefje is able to achieve construction of said staircase through a combination of echo location, scientific and mathematical savantism (particularly inverse-square law), and the innate use of a number of anatomical gadgets attached to his dorsal fin, flippers and rostrum.

These include:

Cast (partial)[edit]

  • Daniel McPhee as Wentelteefje
  • Abe Forsythe as Samuel
  • Ryan Johnson as Kenneth


  • Trent Baines was orginally earmarked for the role of Samuel, but was later replaced by Abe Forsythe due to scheduling conflicts.
  • Kenneth's line "When you get to a fork in the road, take it" is a known Yogiism.
  • Kenneth's line "Enough is enough! I have had it with this motherfucking dolphin and his motherfucking stairs!" is a not-so-subtle nod to 2006's "Snakes on a Plane".
