No, I am not bemoaning the state of theatre or the world or anything else for that matter. This is purely a post (after months of silence) to celebrate that my latest film project as writer/executive producer is finally finished, screened and out there on the film festival circuit. And what is the name of this film? You got it – “Why Must The Show Go On?”. All makes perfect sense in the end.
The film stars Sally McLean (yours truly), alongside the fabulous Perri Cummings (NEIGHBOURS, BLUE HEELERS), Paul Dawber (SATISFACTION, BASTARD BOYS, NEIGHBOURS, SONS & DAUGTERS) and Nathan Strauss (“Jason” from the RACV ads – yes, “Jason” is really an actor – really).
Others who appear in the film include Billy Smedley and Nicholas Dubberley.
We were delighted to be able to launch the film on February 23rd, 2010 at the Australian Center for the Moving Image (ACMI, Federation Square) in Melbourne to a really appreciative audience who’s laughter was music to our ears!
Now – we’re onto the film festival rounds and Phase Two of the project’s life … but more on all that as news comes to hand. In the meantime, here’s the trailer for the film for your viewing enjoyment and links below that for more information.
