Just a short exercise. I'm not really sure what it's about.
Bless You has been accepted into a few festivals around the world, but it's this one at home that I'm the most excited about. I love MIAF and go every year. Bless You will screen in the Australian Showcase. It's great to be accepted in your home town!
While working on Bear Interrupted I heard comments made on the news from our idiot Prime Minister Tony Abbott about our forests. He thinks we have too many of them, and he thinks loggers are the ultimate conservationists. I got so worked up I downed tools with the bear project and made this little film.
So I've finished on series 2 of Wentworth and now it's time to get stuck into my next animation project, Bear Interrupted. It's about a grieving bear who is trying to clean up after a murder, but keeps getting interrupted...
Bless You has featured in The New Daily, Australia's new online only newspaper.
I have been nominated for an editing award by the Australian Screen Editors for television drama on Episode 1, Series 1 of Wentworth. (very proud of my work on that episode!)
Update: And the winner is... Devil's Dust, Katrina Barker. Congratulations!
This was the first festival I'd travelled overseas for, so this was a great bonus! And Portland (Oregon) is such a beautiful place.
