It is with great pleasure and a large helping of nerves that I have released my film baby to the world today. Please watch, share and enjoy ‘Good Grief’, the film that swallowed 2012 for me and has occupied most waking moments since then. Please do visit the website for more information about the film and where it has been.

I was quietly surprised and very pleased to discover this week that I’ve been listed by Raindance Film Festival as an Aussie film-maker to watch.  I’m in great company on a list that includes AFTRS graduates and quite a few women.

I wonder what my feature film is going to be about….. (I already know, I just have to write the damned thing!)

I’ve teamed up with the good people of Monster & Bear Productions in Brunswick. Here’s a little claymation intro I made recently for their upcoming web series ‘Rough as guts’, a behind-the-scenes look at how they make their incredible music videos. No bears were harmed in the making of this animation*.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the talented Elle and Carolyn of Pozible.  They came over, we chatted about crowdfunding Good Grief, Gomez stuck his nose in everything and we all ate cupcakes. Good times.

As an Ambassador to the Pozible network I’m very happy to pass on my experience and advice about how the campaign for Good Grief went, and what was involved. You can grab some of my hot tips over at GiveMeABreak, an arts blog run by my good friend Christie W of Animo studios.

In 2013 I ran a very successful crowdfunding campaign for my short film project Good Grief.  It was an absolute trip to see how many people were on board to support my little movie, and was an unforgettable experience  that has helped me to grow as an artist and film-maker.  I am so delighted to be able to give something back to the community that supported me by signing on as a Pozible Ambassador.

Along with a team of kickarse crowdfunding experts, I’m here to help the next generation of budding film-makers and animators craft a successful and engaging crowdfunding campaign. Feel free to drop me a line.

I was recently on the ABC TV news talking about my new film Good Grief – you can see the full story on the ABC website.

The Pozible crowdfunding campaign for the film runs until October 12, so if you feel at all inclined to help us out you can find out more here.

Earlier this week I released the full version of my two minute short claymation film The Batchelor Experience from 2010 online in thanks for a bunch of lovely people sending me money to make a new film. Go and watch it!


It’s time to introduce you to my new film project. I’m currently in development on a short stop-motion documentary called “Good Grief”. I’m taking a look at how losing something or someone important can lead to a bunch of positive change in your life… I’ll be interviewing a wide range of people and asking them how they have benefited as a result of losing something they love. It’s going to be a very rewarding project for me and I’m really chuffed to be working with my great producer Jonno Katz to see this baby through!

You can find out more about Good Grief on the website.

Camembleeeaaargh!
