i am indeed mr sigerson. As part of my residency i need to leave the country, and it was around the same time, and i've been busting my ass trying to get heroes out the door, so i scored a trip.

I'm a bit over the whole industry though, and i'm hoping that this'll reinvigorate whatever passion i may once have had. Failing that: week in LA, week in san francisco.

In othernews...

As many of you no doubt know, i made a film. an odd, dark comedy about relationships, arguments and firearms. It's been doing the rounds for short film festivals, and hasn't really had much of an impact anywhere, which i've always found a little odd, and a little dissapointing. Mostly because i think it is actually quite good.

But this week, something appears to have changed in the world.

I submitted to 2 screenings: quickflicks @ the commercial, and fitzroy shorts.

It made it into both of them.

Here's the details of both screenings, before i get into the oddness:

Monday April 26th, 2004 from 8pm.
At The Commercial Hotel
238 Whitehall Street, Yarraville, VIC 3013.
(Melways Reference: 42 C9)
Phone: 03 9689 9354
Email for further details.

Fitzroy Shorts
WHEN: Wednesday May 5th
WHERE: The Night Cat 141 Johnson Street Fitzroy
Melways reference 2C:B7 Phone: 0404 09 1140
TIME: 7pm doors open/Screening starts 8pm sharp!
COST: $8 Full $5 Conc

If you're coming along to the Fitzroy shorts screening, mention that you're there for 'Arguments & Resolutions' and collective noun gets some cash!

The Quickflicks story
I dropped the mini DV tape off at openchannel this lunchtime, and got chatting to Andrea, who runs it.
'How many films are screening,' i asked her.
Her mouth moved and her fingers stretched as she ran through the programme in her head.
'5,' she replied, 'and Harvey Krumpet.'

Up against an oscar winner...prize is only $100, but I had hoped that maybe i'd have some sort of chance...

On the positive side, it does make it the first collective noun film to screen alongside an oscar winner.

And it's not like that's ever going to happen again.



The Fitzroy Shorts story

I was going through my email this evening, and there was one from the fitzroy shorts people.
'Congratulations,' read the form email, 'to those whose film has been selected for this months screening at Fitzroy Shorts. Here is a list of the films to be screened...'
