‘Like’ – I LOVED this poem “Bitchin’ in the Kitchen Sink Drama”  by Paul Waring.  READ it on WRITE OUT LOUD or click the picture! 😅   As a visually oriented reader, I actually laughed out loud!

I want to talk about publishing and writing in Australia today. We have an old publishing industry that clings tightly to some of its early twentieth-century etiquette while dealing with a world in flux.  READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE

An excellent interview with an iconic Aussie actor. I had the pleasure of hearing him launch a book by one of my favourite writers T.A.G. Hungerford; “What Happened to Joseph…” and hear him read a few of the poems.

Jack Thompson and Aden Young in Don’t Tell.

When I told Jack Thompson I was calling from Fremantle in Western Australia, he was quick to let me know how fond he was of the Port City.

In the mid-90s, Thompson acted in Graeme Rattigan’s Under The Lighthouse Dancing which was shot just off Fremantle on the west coast’s most famous island playground, Rottnest.

“Jacqueline McKenzie played my wife in that,” Thompson remembered fondly.

Twenty years later Thompson and ‘Jackie’ – as he affectionately refers to his friend – are starring together in another film, Tori Garrett’s directorial debut, Don’t Tell, which sees them playing opposing barristers.

“I’ve known Jackie for quite some time and she’s really good in this movie. She plays the barrister who works for the church and I’m pleased to say that I win the case,” Thompson chuckles deeply.

He’s referring to the real life…

I Am Heath Ledger is a cinematic portrait of Ledger the artist. Devoid of gossip and any hint of salaciousness, it will disappoint the TMZ crowd but should prove rich for film students, particularly those of the art of screen acting. It is so tasteful and craft-oriented that, even though Naomi Watts is one of the prominent interview subjects, no mention is made of her and Ledger’s love affair. Nor is any image shown of Ledger with an alcoholic beverage, a joint or in any state of mind other than alert and engaged. His death is dealt with quickly, at the end, after a single mention of “demons”, a reference to an “unravelling”, and a few nods to his insomnia.

So dispel thoughts of getting any “dirt” and revel instead in the actor, director, sometime visual artist…

The Boffin

bookshops are like lovers

they numb in black & white

then seduce you with colour

 

titillate and tempt your soul

until you finally let go

find the courage to close

 

the book ~ pages which leave

you gasping ~ the breath of air

on your face feels like a slap

Congratulations, Ric – that’s a huge achievement.

In the next two weeks I have a feature film, a feature documentary and two TV series being released.

Bad Girl is a feature film that was shot in Perth. After being edited in Sydney by Simon Njoo, the rest of the post production was done in Perth, with Sandbox creating the visual effects and grading the pictures and Curtin Productions doing the sound.

One of the big challenges on the film was the music. We were fortunate to have Warren Ellis, of Bad Seeds fame, as composer. Rather than compose to the picture cut, he created themes that the director, Fin Edquist, and I would then manipulate, remixing the stems and editing the music around to fit the picture. It was a fun challenge, and in meeting it I relied heavily on my many years of experience as a music engineer.

I was the dialogue editor as well…
