Carriageworks Open Weekend

Performance Space included Simulated Rapture as an installation for the open weekend at Carriageworks.
It was a general public opening. It was hectic.. a bit like the Powerhouse Museum on a Saturday. Its an exciting space, but like a giant white horse, so big its hard to get on it, but fascinating, but it makes you feel like you've got to upgrade all your gear...
This was the basic setup - 2 monitors with separate JBLs. It reads well that way, but there was the suggestion of doing 4 monitors, each with a separate performer's world.

Trust and Try ABC

The ABC has bought "Trust and Try" for five years. A five minute film by Julie-Anne Long and shot and edited by myself. Again it was the most simple film, like 'Potsdamer' I think it took about an hour to edit. It is basically four single takes of simple vaudeville acts with Michael Whaites, Kathy Cogill and Narelle Benjamin, Rakini Devi and Julie-Anne with a clicking super-8 projector as a soundtrack... with a few indiscriminate speed changes.
