The National Archives have released a large selection of the Mildenhall Collection of early Canberra online. They’re asking people to take modern photos from a similar vantage point to compare the changes over the years. I decided to have a try at something a little different, and was pretty happy with this first attempt. [...]
[ 23 July, 2011; ] Canberra Academy of Dramatic Art is looking for talent. We are holding an exciting event titled Have You Got Talent? Day, offering Canberra actors the chance to be noticed by industry people (including agents, actors and directors). Participants will have three minutes to present their act through a day-time workshop – and if selected, they’ll [...]
The Finalists screening for Lights! Canberra! Action! was held on Friday night in Garema Place. A good-sized crowd turned out to watch the 12 finalist films, selected from 40 entries in this year’s competition.
The standard of entry this year was very high. The bar seems to keep getting raised every year, and I honestly think [...]
This article in today’s CT refers to a cameraguy buddy of mine. The equipment is his livelihood, so if you come across anything or hear anything, please let the police know.

I know some of you have enjoyed my past Lights! Canberra! Action! entries, “Brotherhood of the Y” 1 & 2. I’m currently taking part in a competition run by the Movie Extra channel to win a $50,000 budget to turn the concept into a 7-part web series. This means I’d finally be able to [...]
Well, another year of the Lights! Canberra! Action! short film competition over and done with. The screening of the Top 12 films in Garema Place on Friday night went really well.
After winning the prize for Best Film last year, I unfortunately went home empty handed this year, although my film did make it to the [...]
For those who may still be interested, the Lights! Canberra! Action! short film competition was held a couple of weeks ago. My film “Brotherhood of the Y” picked up the awards for “Best Use of Festival Theme” and “Best Director”. You can see it here:
Surprisingly (to me, at least) I also picked up the award [...]
I was part of the film crew that was shooting on Athllon Drive on Friday, as mentioned in a previous thread. It was an interesting weekend, and all went reasonably well. But it did leave me with a few thoughts. The main one being that there are drivers in Canberra who are complete f@cking morons.
Okay, I’ve just jumped on the bandwagon of producing a local low/no budget indie feature, and thought I might give it a bit of a plug. It’s being shot on HD, using a number of people from the local filmmaking scene, both in front of and behind the camera. Only a couple of days shooting [...]
My short film “Love. War & Auditions” was the winner of the Best Capital Region Film category at SNOWYfest last week. It’s not on Youtube, I’m afraid, but those who are interested can check out the film here.
