And fade out…

Well, despite all odds, we did it! From all reports, for those in the live audience, and those watching at home, the live script read was a big success! Thank you so much to everyone who attended in person, and those that made use of the live stream via the Internet! An even bigger thank…

Not long to go now…

Yesterday was a BIG day! We bumped into the venue and set up all the streaming gear, and Al and Nick also did some rehearsals with the actors for the live event. We tested everything, and everything seemed to work – which was a great relief! Not long to go now… Which is both exciting and scary!…

ALL ABOARD!!

There’s no turning back now! As I sit in the dark of my room, I am suddenly hit with a certain reality – this once small little script read, now turned LateNite Films event, is really about to happen. A rush of excitement, anxiety, relief, nervousness, confidence and gratitude washes through my veins & my…

Cue Camera One!

OK… So I have to admit – my life is way too much fun! Despite the fact that this whole “live stream” event has now blown completely out of proportion, I am so excited about the whole thing. I’ve spent the day driving around picking up gear, and have spent the last few hours testing…

Let the games begin!

Like a lot of things we try and do, what started off a little script read with a few actors, a director and a kitchen table has all of a sudden blown up into a full scale event! I guess we’re just too excitable – we come up with ideas that we think “would be…

Inside Insanity

Thank God for new technology, right? Now with the power of a phone in the palm of my hand I can take pictures of my script, upload them to our wonderful blog, and then if you have our iPhone app thingy you can see it straight away on yours! Isn’t this marvelous! Anyway, here’s some…

Photos from the Short Film

If we step back in time to 2007, Alistair Marks was just your average film student studying towards a Bachelor of Film & Television at Swinburne University. However, unlike a lot of young up-and-coming filmmakers, he decided that instead of just putting together a short film that has a very limited chance of actually going…

Day Two Happy Snaps!

As promised, here are some absolutely gorgeous photos taken by the incredible Michelle Leong from Day Two of the Sakooz shoot. There will be lots more of these fantastic images to come in the weeks ahead, but until then, enjoy… Also, just to give you a quick update, we are still madly cutting together the…

Photo Evidence…

As promised, here are a few snap shots of Pinky’s head and the spaceship construction in no particular order. Enjoy! And, don’t worry – there will be plenty of more photos and videos coming over the next couple of weeks! Until then… Chris!

Around, and around we go!

OK… I’ll be honest. I haven’t absolutely no idea how anyone can maintain a daily blog – especially film makers. I just don’t understand how they can possibly find the time! We’ve been absolutely positively flat out since my last post – it’s really been a bit silly! Chris Jones I salute you! I have…

Another day another dollar…

A lot has happening this week – and boy, oh boy do I mean a lot! When you’re only getting around two hours sleep a night (maximum) you sure do get a lot done. But regardless of how much coffee you drink to keep you awake, you still seem to just run out of time….

Smile! You’re on candid camera!

It’s extremely hard to believe it’s already been four days since I last updated this blog! Where the hell does time go? No really – I honestly want to know! So what’s been happening since my last message, well, quite a lot! Last Saturday we had more auditions – eighteen of them to be precise….
