Dear readers. You will have noticed I no longer write or post images on this website. This is because I have been hard at work designing my website (www.NicoleMelrose.com) where you can see my latest works in:

-Film

-Modelling

-Travels

-Burlesque

…and much more.

My favorite part of my website is my Wed Diary Members only section. That is where I am now updating what I am doing in my personal life and in my creative work life. As a member you also receive printable images and can directly speak to me with requests or just to say hello.

To become a member you simple click the Subscribe icon and it is a small cost of $7.99 (AUS) Per month. I’ve made it affordable due to this hard time with the Covid-19 virus going on.

I do hope those of you who followed me here will chose to continue to follow me on my website as I’ve had such a good experience speaking with and sharing my progressions (and regressions!) with my Darling subscribers.

Tonight’s Explosion!

For those of you curious to hear a little bit more about Ruby’s Balloon, here is an interview straight from the director and I (interviewed by Emily Steckly)! Or maybe this is just interesting for those of you who are curious to hear what I sound like, as photographs don’t literally “say more than a thousand words”…or any words at all.

Underneath is an invitation which will be held in the CBD.
There will be live entertainment with Diego Villalta’s and his band (I’ll even sing a few jazz numbers with the band). But most importantly, every drink purchased will help raise money for our feature-short. We hope to see you all there.

A big thank you to Lustre bar for supporting our film and event.

Bursting With Anticipation over Ruby’s Balloon

September 20, 2015 § Leave a comment

We are very proud to announce that designer Anie Zanazanian (Anie Z Couture) will be making and styling all the costumes for Ruby and her husband. She will be creating a new iconic yellow dress for Ruby to wear in the feature length film (still 1950’s inspired of course).

Anie Z, (if you don’t already know) is a designer who took Melbourne by storm almost overnight. She has very recently created clothing for renowned Ita Buttrose (Studio Ten, Channel Ten, Click here to watch), had her clothing in the Fashion Aid Runway (as the final featured designer) and is currently travelling Europe with her gowns. It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented designer working on our film! (You can read more about her on Anna Pappas blog HERE)

More exciting news includes work on our new film score. Ken White has traveled all around the world playing music throughout his life! He specializes in jazz and has been working on developing our film score inspired by the classic French jazz sound. Another interesting fact is his band headlined in Sweden for a while back in the day.

Emily Steckly is a writer who has written and edited a few articles in the past for me. Recently she conducted an interview with Billy Minshull-Gardner (The director of Ruby’s Balloon) and I, asking us questions about our ambitions for the film and the plot line for the feature-short. I couldn’t have asked for a better writer.

The Afterglow

Emily Steckly has also written various plays and has written a new show playing in the Melbourne Fringe festival, The Afterglow. – “What is death? And why do we mourn the loss of those both familiar and strange?

The Assembly of Character

Writer, Emily Steckly and I have started work one of her next pieces. She is working on a literary portrait based on me. I am very excited though at the same time a little anxious. Having somebody paint or write about you is always a little dwelling because you see how another person views you and which aspects of ‘you’ most stand out.

Emily Steckly's Literary Portrait

Two days after the closing night of ‘Noises Off’ I traveled abroad to Europe and will be based here over the next few weeks. Before leaving Peter Coulson and I started on the first photograph of our next series and though the photograph has been released it is still unfinished.

Kimothy Camilleri and I are starting to take pictures together again. There are a few art ideas we want to explore together. She is one of the few photographers that I know who has the ability to transfer both her and her model’s desires in  the one picture.

Art Exhibition

April 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

This week I have mostly been focusing on my artwork. I have two series of paintings I am working on. The first is a Roy Lichtenstein comic inspired, with a fem fetal twist and the second is a Cheetah and nature series.  I want to paint enough paintings to be able to create an exhibition.

Peter Coulson also called me earlier in the week to let me know I am modeling a Helmuc Newton inspired photo shoot. Apparently it’s going to be used for a furniture advert. Maybe I will be on your next IKEA couch catalogue?

Where Am I?
