Byron Bay

This past weekend was spent lazing around on the beach in Byron Bay.. :) Byron Bay is the eastern most tip of Australia, and the lighthouse is the first thing on the entire continent that the sun's rays hit every morning..

Cheating Death

Here's the short film I made for my Digital Media class. The brief was to create a 1-2 minute film that included a running sequence. Written, filmed and edited all by myself - and for the first time too, so be gentle with the feedback ;)

Happy birthday Dad!

Today is Dad's birthday :) A valuable lesson I've learnt from my Dad: Just because you get older doesn't mean you have to grow up! (And I'll throw in a pic of Mom as well, while I'm at it, simply because she's lovely too..)

Weekend dilemma

What's a girl to do: Noosa beach or pirate-party in the city??

Marcus has now bought his flight down to Joburg to match my arrival date! Only 109 days until I see my baby again ;)

First assignments

The work is starting to build up and the first assignments will soon be due. For Print Media we have to start choosing our term-project and get in touch with the particular clients. (Scary for someone who has only been in the country 3 weeks!) For the Photo Media class we have to do a photoshoot in 1885-1910 pictorialist style. For Digital Media we have to film a short 2-3min movie that includes a running sequence. The most daunting thing right now, however, isn't trying my hand at new medias or new techniques - it's the fact that I don't know that many people very well yet and am realising I will probably have to approach random strangers and ask if I can film them haha.. (Wierdo!) I need models and actors, dammit! Anyone willing?

V-dubber weekend

Talk about a crash-course in Split Screen Kombis and suped up Beetles.. That was the VW nerd-event of the century - and actually quite fun! It was so completely different to anything I've ever been to, as well as anything I'd probably ever get to doing back home. Lots of laid back V-Dub-lovers, hippies, kiddies, oldies and everything in between. The first question Sara and I were asked by pretty much everyone was, "Ok so.. like, how did you end up here?" It was pretty obvious we weren't kombi-geeks, but we were welcomed with open arms anyway :) Good times..
