Elephion

March 31, 2013 § 1 Comment

An elephant and a lion suffered a dispute one night, 
They both stayed loyal to their mottoes that fight, 
An eye for an eye, an arm for an arm, a tail for a tail and a nail for a nail,
 The end of the fight would have left a grown man pale,
or possibly sent them mentally right off the rail! 
The end result was more than sublime, 
The thing left standing, was a confused, Elephion.’

My head is swollen,
It’s full off emptiness you see,
A draft blows through it,
sending shudders to my feet

Below are some photographs Peter Coulson and I shot before I left for L.A He will be traveling to Hollywood early next year for work. I will also be shooting with him during his stay. In the mean time I am on the pursuit to perfecting the art of performance.

I am currently working and studying in Hollywood.

The photographs below were taken a little while ago by Jessica Eisner. They are all taken at my parents house. I moved there when I was eleven. It took me until the day that I moved out to realize how beautiful that house was. Prior to that I couldn’t stand the idea of my family replacing the ‘old house’. It’s funny how attached you get to things, especially as a child.

After a period of silence I have started working again. Peter Coulson and I did a new series based around my sketch ”I Can Do Whatever I Want’. This was based on a photograph my mother took of when I was a child playing dress up. Typically I played dress up in the nude.

Newspaper Interview

Life plays many tricks on you. Occasionally you can step out and watch from a distance. These are the moments where you truly appreciate life. Then before you know it you get caught up in it’s tricks again.

Enzo Ficco and I were interviewed and photographed for the MX newspaper advertising our act for the upcoming Gangsters Ball! We were interviewed by a gentleman named, Simon Eales and he was a pleasure to talk to. The photographs were taken in the ally way next to the Forum theater with a Rolls Royce! This may also be the car that Enzo and I would be arriving in on the night.

The Ball will be held at the Forum Theater on the 8th of September. Enzo and I are doing two silent magic segments derived from the “Al Cappuccino” performance.

A Day on Film

There is so much ugliness in the world. But remember there is just as much beauty as there is ugliness! So keep smiling because there is so much to smile for and the ugliness just isn’t worth a frown!

Recorded Thoughts

Tony Ferreri has filmed some more footage with me. It will be similar to the first Test Shoot we did except this one may have some voice recordings over the top. These are things I have recorded throughout my day when thoughts have stirred me.

Enzo Ficco and I will also be performing at the Gangsters Ball this year.

Artists are great attention seekers.

My Secret Short Film

July 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

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.
