April Drop In

Shooting with Sony’s F55 – Tales From The Field.
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Tim Noonan has recently returned from many months shooting overseas with Sony’s F55 in a variety of extreme environments. Tim will speak about his experiences working with the camera and show some examples of his unique work.

Woven Threads

NSW member Michi Marosszeky is currently involved in a project which she has written and directed - we thought you might like to know about it.

It’s a nine part animation series called Woven Threads one episode of which has been completed. Michi is using the “crowdfunding” model to raise finance for the remaining eight. Here’s a little about it:

Woven Threads brings to life stories surrounding the diversity of immigration, through humorous, poignant, and always touching animated videos. The aim of Woven Threads is to connect people through story. It is designed so that the debates, disputes and hysteria that surround immigrants, refugee's and asylum seekers might be put aside for a few short minutes while the humanity and the uncertainty of life is explored.

2014 NSW Awards

While the 2014 NSW Awards won’t take place until November, entries will be open from August 1st. This date is a long way off but even so it’s probably time for members to start considering work they wish to enter. Arranging entries can sometimes be time consuming so the earlier you give them thought the better - don’t leave it until the last minute. Obviously as we get closer to the date there’ll be more reminders.
