There are some exciting things happening in the local film and theatre scene of my home town of Perth, Australia. Last year saw the rusty old engine start revving on a dawdling film industry, and the outlook is for some rapid acceleration in 2014. Someone has loaded the system with WD40. There is growing international attention being cast our way. Big budget films are being made left right and centre. The Film and Theatre community have never been stronger.
And I am not the only one feeling. It is a sentiment I am hearing from a lot of people. They all feel it. There is such a positive vibe in the air it is almost electric. I have been doing theatre and following the film scene for many years and I have never before seen anything like this.
I have started a new blog (hamreflections.wordpress.com) which may interest someone, and having been a person who struggled to keep a regular blog, I have found this one surprisingly easy. I've even been inspired to reignite my Photography Blog also (jeffwatkinsphotography.wordpress.com) so pop over there if you are interested.
Already, there are several projects in progress which is presenting some interesting opportunities for me, and a few more that have suggested a possible involvement, and we haven't even gotten through half of this month. To say I am excited is an understatement.
