20 odd Gigglebytes

The shoot for Are You Ready Yet, the new single written by Clare Bowditch and Gotye was a day that quite aptly punned that title entirely out of the stadium.  As a skeleton crew did an incredible job of thinking on their feet over a huge last minute change, a steadily swelling number of volunteers sat in the garden, soaking up sunshine and keeping themselves entertained.  Just.  More on that day to come, complete with enough on set photos to make you all but taste the inertia.

Now though, all the footage is converted, logged and thown into the relevant sequences.  Nothing left for it but to start editing.  Wondering that even with about a 100 bazillion hours of people being tickled, do I have enough of what it takes to make this into the something it deserves to be?  Only one way to see, ready or not ...

Oh, and to appease my desire to offer you guys something beyond my world as much as to appease my desire for From On High to be viewed as other than hideously self serving, I've decided to include a coda at the end of every post.  Not sure what I'll call it, yet.  But I do know that here I'll endeavour to point you towards another corner of the world to check out someone doing something I reckon deserves attention.  This week it's easy: Schoolhouse Studios.  Run by two incredibly gifted girls, I've mentioned the place here before.  But it's just launched its new website, profiling the site and it's 50 odd artists, from fellow film makers, to architects, animators to clothing desingers.  Check it out: http://schoolhousestudios.com.au/
