This morning I had the pleasure of for the second time being on Jon Faine's Conversation Hour on 774 ABC, promoting the screening of "Making it Handmade" at MIFF.
I thought I was going to be running late, for those of you not living in Melbourne, a power line went down and hence my baby sitter, Nanna Jean was stuck at Flinders street station without a train in sight! So my wonderful partner came to the rescue and I jumped into a cab. Halfway there will applying my makeup I realised the cab was swerving a bit and looked into the rear view mirror to see the cabbies eyes slowly closing!! Promptly I began asking him questions in rapid succession and we managed to get to the ABC studios without incident!
Jon's co-host today was actor Adam Zwar from one of my favourite Australian TV shows "Wilfred" and the other guest was John Wood of Blue Heelers fame! What a star studded line up! However, once the subject of my new wave erotic film and sex came up then all of a sudden it was like being in the studio with three giggling school boys!!
It was lots of fun but I was wondering if we would actually end up talking about "Making it Handmade!". However I'm glad I can finally gett my dirty little secret of loving craft out into the open!!!
You can listen to the interview here.
I can't believe it! The MIFF screening is sold out! Sorry to all of you who missed out. I'm trying to organise another screening somewhere else. Will let you know when its organised! I'm still in shock and I keep receiving emails from complete strangers who are upset they missed out!

Yes finally it can be announced!!
I've had to sit on this one for quite a few months....which for me is hard, especially as I was soooooo excited to have it premiering in my home town!
Sorry its taken so long for me to post about this but I've been making other things too while I'm been finishing this movie, and finally on early Sunday June 20th after nearly three days of intense labour I pushed out a beautiful baby boy called Royce! One of the hardest projects I've ever had to do! Oh well I can now say I'm giving birth to two children in two months, the other of course being a film baby!
Here is the MIFF website if you want to find out more and I'd love to see you all there on Sunday August 1st. Hang around afterwards so you can pick the brains of Pip, Casey, Rayna, Gemma and myself!
Also if you haven't checked it out there is a wonderful article written by Megan Spencer ( who will be chairing the Q and A after the screen of the film) in Frankie Magazine. I've always called this mag the "cool kids mag" so I've been joking with friends that I'm now one of the cool kids!!! hee hee what a joke, I'm really a bit of dag....and thought I was too much of weirdo to be considered even slightly cool! The above picture I stole from the lovely Gemma Jones's blog as I haven't been able to get into my office and scan the article yet!
Hope to see you all at the screening!
