REFRESH screening at The Front

By johnboy - 22 March 2011 6

Acclaimed international playwright and local ABC radio producer Melanie Tait has made a short film and it’s screening at The Front in Lyneham for one night only.

The Facebook event page has this to say:

We done made a short film.

If it had a tacky Hollywood tagline, the tagline would be thus:

“Some people you can’t help connecting with.”

Get it? It’s about a gal who’s internet dating in all the wrong places.

Please come along to The Front, watch the flick and have some drinks with us.

Starring Sarah Quinn, Andrew Holmes, Benjamin Crowley, Aidan Emanuel, Nicholas Linehan…and Merlin.

Directed by Felix Barbalet

Written by Melanie Tait
Script Edit by Steven Roberts
Sound by Shane Morton
Continuity by Jo Meakins
Production Assistants Priscilla Jackman, Maxine Morrison, Duglis

Melanie has this to say in addition:

We totally did all of it over a weekend in January without any money – my Mum did the catering, actors and techies volunteered their time.

April’s Caravan provided the costumes, Lonsdale Cyclery gave us bikes without a charge, Sally Hopman at the National Library of Australia opened the library early for us on the Saturday morning, The Front let us commandeer their cafe all afternoon, The Street let us hold castings, Ivana Leonard (dog trainer) brought and looked after her dog for a whole day’s shooting, Adrienne Francis let us trample through and film her gorgeous O’Connor cottage for a night – and provided pizza into the bargain!

This film is just a result of a whole heap of awesome Canberrans banding together to make something very sweet.

What i can’t stand is how ridiculous the premise is – and its all for stupid dolts to go on about well that person’s surname is the same as someone who was a producer for another band and they had a song called X Y Z and Z is the title of another song by this band Bleeugh and Bleeugh is an anagram of Ghueelb and so we’re playing that song.

I mean FFS its ponderous

so do you never find yourself thinking, “well obviously, i’d play ‘that’ next..”? oh well, some of us do and enjoy the extra dimension to the playing of an old tune on the wireless as we drive home.

Yes apologies from me – I always get 365 degrees when in the car and yesterday realised it was Melanie Sim – and yesterday they played echo beach which was great.

Wrong Melanie. There are two Melanies at ABC Canberra. Melanie Sim does 365 Degrees of Separation. Which I love. Where else would you hear Captain and Tennille’s Love Will Keep Us Together?

thankfully nowhere..; but i agree, 365 is often brilliant – and mel sim is doing stuff on sunday mornings now, too…

Is this why she has been absent lately from the execrable “365 degrees of separation” (or was it shame)?

It’s so hard to refrain from using the dreaded H word. ugghughguhghg.
