Foot surgery aka Bilateral Excision of Morton’s Neuroma IE a big fat tumour on a nerve in each foot. Two years later, I still have pain and cannot wear high heels for longer than a couple of hours. The pain is nerve damage – twitches – cramps – electrical impulses that feel like tight rubber bands around my toes. Yoga and pilates can have good days – the bad days are excruciating and leave me limping. For decades, I ignored warnings and vainly bragged about how I could do anything in heels including run long distance. I lived in heels......

This wonderful short documentary explores the world of adult LEGO – director Daniel Bourke. Ages 4-99 is not hyperbole. In the 24 hour Bad / Fake news environment, it is a pertinent reminder that to build something physical and stay connected creatively to your inner child is good for the soul, good for the world. It won the CFIFF Changing Face International Festival earning its first laurels. I was fortunate to co-EP A Room Full of LEGO – 1 of the highlights of the 10+ short docos I EPd in 2018. Check out the trailer....

May 2017 I scripted a short film based on a stalker incident in the 1990s before Australia anti-stalking legislation was passed (I reported the first Australian conviction under the new laws for 7 Nightly News).  I turned the film script into a play script that was staged by Short+Sweet – the world’s largest short play festival – then producer Chris Ramos asked for the original film script and brought on director Tony Tilse. It’s starting on the festival circuit and has won a Silver Remi Award at Worldfest – International Film Festival, USA Here’s the trailer and IMDB profile.  ...

The genre project has grown teeth and claws – I’m up to act 3 of the script. Every Monday, I wake up and kill someone before breakfast.  It’s a great way to start the week. Of the 13 characters who ‘agreed’ to be on board, only 3 are left. 1 character is a bit of a favourite so sometimes I imitate Arnie in Commando (1985) and say something like, ‘I like you.  I kill you last’. The post-modern transgressive mystery novel has 5 chapters drafted.  Progress will be updated here.   The post-modern transgressive mystery novel has 5 chapters drafted . ......

I MC-d their quarterly event that explores a high end tech topic with partner business showcases on the night along plus food and drinks.  It’s a great networking event for digital agencies with panel discussions recorded and available on youtube....

Late last century, I had the privilege of working with the Yoram Gross Studio doing professional PR and personal PR for this internationally renowned creative family.  It was wonderful to return to the studio and see how Yoram’s son Guy turned it into Church St Studios which is an artful, inspired space with composers and artists creating great projects.   Scan the talent list working there including Sean Carey and Guy’s imp ressive list of awards and credits. We all met to explore how recording artists with a completed album could go to the next level – management and marketplace......

A brave statement from a humble man who does what he says he will do.  Mark Cleary started S+S early this century and made it into the world’s largest short play festival with the mantra of ‘making the world a more creative place 10 minutes at a time .  We’ve talked about a S+S Film Festival for a few years – now it’s arrived with the first gala finale in Hollywood later this year.   It was my great pleasure to be one of the judges of festival 1,heat 1....

Seeing the email with the first word ‘Congratulations…’ a couple of tears burned the back of my eyeballs. I’m elated to start my MCA (Master Of Creative Arts) research degree with this world class university.   This is the step before a doctorate. Close friends know the 4 day weekends in 2016 I devoted to researching and re-writing the application alone. There are some talented academic and production visionaries who gave me great support, advice and guidance. I’d like to name names but most are quite shy and I don’t want to embarrass anyone. On the other hand, if I’m......

School-age filmmakers vie for awards and prizes at Flickerfest – the internationally acclaimed short film festival that is Academy® accredited. It is my 3rd time being a juror for FF having judged the International and Australian categories in recent years....

I wrote a film script about a real-life experience with a stalker (coincidentally, I also covered the first prosecuted stalker case under the new stalker legislation back in the 90s for Seven Nightly News). The film script became a play produced on stage for Short+Sweet then became a film produced by Chris Ramos. I tried to upload the original Stalker Tapes to my channel but youtube prevented it....
