My friend Jason Paris has provided the music for many of my films over the years and we shot this at a few different locations from about February this year onwards. The film features some shots of a terrific water spout as seen from Newcastle's King Edwards Park. Jason's music is wonderful and this is my first crack at making a music clip. I hope I did his song justice.

We made The Bully a few weeks back specifically for the Rocky Fringe film festival. The film features Malcolm Young, Carolyn Starr and me. It was shot in the Teralba Bowling Club. The Saturday morning drinkers were treated to the very odd spectacle of a man in a cat collar blubbering away. Carolyn's performance as "the bully" was spot on and Malcolm always brings his wonderful personality and good humour to our short films. To round out our crew Renee Mondy did her usual fine effort as Director of Photography. Very pleased with this one.

We shot this last year at the back of the K Mart car park in Glendale NSW in about 40 minutes. The story comes from a real event, a dog in a Woolworths car park did actually beat me in a staring competition! Carolyn Starr was the D.O.P. for this and does really well considering Chloe the dog wasn't keen sitting in the car for very long! Nathan Searle was Chloe's owner and Dog Wrangler in the shoot and was a big help to the overall look of the finished film. Jeremy Sherman's wonderful tune "Showdown" was perfect and is probably the closest I'll ever get to making a western. The Staring Competition will also be screened at the Good Dog Film Festival at the Balmain town hall next weekend - 17th, 18th & 19th of August.
