The Melbourne Magic Festival was too short lived! By the time we settled in a nice performance rhythm it was all over. My written script was received very nicely by the audience. I had such a terrible fear that nobody would laugh. Enzo Ficco was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with him again. We already have a function booked and it looks like another public event too.
I will be working again with Tony Ferrieri in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully we are also able to start filming the next short film soon. I will be performing next to one of my most respected actors in this particular film.
Peter Coulson and I shot together a while back in my house. I’ve put up some of the photographs. Our next project will be another location shoot. It’s nice to get out of the studio for a while.

Last night was the Gala show for the Melbourne Magic Festival. Enzo Ficco and I performed a section of our performance, “A Magical Journey Back In Time” which was received delightfully well! It was so interesting meeting other magicians and seeing their acts. My friend Anthony Demasi was performing there too. He is now a renowned Melbourne magician. He was actually the one who suggested me to Enzo to be involved in his, “Al Cappuccino” act.
I’m honestly very nervous because I’ve scripted a lot of it and I’m not terribly sure about how my writing will be received. I guess I shouldn’t be too worried as Enzo’s magic is that good I’m certain it can save me from whatever blunder I may make.

Tony Ferrieri and I shot my first film test for him. It was a series of personality moments he captured of me and strung together with music. I guess it’s to help him get an idea how I look through film. The next film I hope will have audio, though… I am a nervous about how I may sound.

I am currently staying in Sweden! I’ve been having a wonderful time visiting relatives and completing another art piece. I’ve been offered a place in February 2012 to display some of my art pieces.
Before I left, Peter Coulson organized a photo shoot for me. I modeled Erin Macneill’s clothing, “Raven”. I loved the gowns I got to wear and look forward to seeing more from her.

From the 22nd to the 25th I will be performing in Death To Carnival once again in the Fringe festival. It will run for an hour less and the characters have been aletered. I personally think it will be a more entertaining show to perform in and watch! I’m looking forward to working with the cast again as the last time was such a pleasure.
If anybody is interested to come and watch it will be held at Revold, (12 Elizabeth st, kensington). Concession is $18 and Full Price is $20. You can book online at: www.melbournefringe.com.au/

I received two tickets today in the mail to see the exclusive screening of “Runway” (directed by Tony Ferrieri). It was another short film I worked in. I loved working with Tony and the rest of the crew. Tony has a very vivid imagination and it defiantly shows in his work. He is one of those connections that developed into a working friendship. There is nothing that this man wouldn’t do for his artwork. We discussed working with each other again after the screening of Runway and I am so looking forward to that day.
I saw my AIPP front cover picture yesterday after the photo shoot with Peter. I can’t believe how thick it is! I will be receiving my own copy sometime soon hopefully.
Peter and I shot for a few hours yesterday and got some really nice snaps. I will put those up over the next few weeks. I managed to get a copy of one of the older photographs taken for the same series. We scrapped the rest because we thought we could redo it and get better photographs. Peter also spoke to me about shooting a motion picture. I won’t go into detail about it because I think it would be best kept secretive until we realise it. It’s definitely something that will be outside of the box.

Australia’s Burlesque Festival was held at at Red Bennies on Saturday and Sunday night. I was working both nights and got to watch all the shows! It was such a fun evening with all sorts of hilarious acts which even included acrobatics. I was so jealous of all the performers. I wanted to be up there myself. I will be performing in the next month but it doesn’t seem to be soon enough.
Over the next week or so I am placing an order for my new business cards I made with one of Peter Coulson’s photographs. I will be shooting with him tomorrow. I’m also waiting to receive a copy of a drama short film I acted in recently. I more recently danced in a “Scarlets” film clip, directed by Stuart Simpson. They were a lot of fun to work with and are an incredible band. I’ve never shot a film clip, its so different to what I’ve done before. You seem to have more freedom and spontaneity with what you do.
