They went on to work on other projects such as a television series called The Generation D, books like "The D Generation Bumper Book of Aussie Heroes" and "Frontline" and albums such as "The D Generation: Thanks for Being You" and "Martin/Molloy: The Brown Album." They won numerous awards and made appearances at comedy festivals.
Following his work with The D Generation, Sitch went on to work with another Australian troop called Working Dog.
This partnership would last at least ten years in which they would produce films like the award-winning indie, The Castle, which was shown around the world. Sitch directed the film which marked his feature film debut.

Sitch continued to work with Working Dog into the new millennium directing the feature The Dish, starring Sam Neill.
