Some Aren’t Hunters: Short Film

I made a short film last month on my friend Hunter and his ex-racing greyhound Indie for the My Rode Reel Film Comp.  Hope you enjoy it.  Although it’s a short film in its own right, it’s also a glimpse of a larger project that is currently taking place.

SOME AREN’T HUNTERS is a story about two misfits transitioning into a happier life.
Some Aren’t Hunters… Or are they?

Upcoming gig with the RAAF Band

I’ve got a gig this weekend (Sunday 29 May) with the lovely people of the Royal Airforce Band at 2pm at the Melbourne Town Hall. Entry is free.  Should be a good one!

Programme:
Copland – Fanfare for the Common Man
Rossini – Overture to La Gazza Ladra
Fučík – Florentiner March
Shostakovich – Waltz No. 2 from Jazz Suite
Holst – Jupiter from The Planets
Mascagni – Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana
Tchaikovsky – 1812 Overture
Strauss – Radetzky March

The musical might of Australia’s military will be on display as Melbourne’s very own Air Force Band touches down at the Melbourne Town Hall to perform an array of your all time favourites. Concluding this magnificent program is Tchaikovsky’s epic ‘1812 Overture’, which will feature pyrotechnic cannons and the Town Hall’s amazing organ during the finale.
