New Erotic Film - The Bedroom! CAN YOU HELP????


Lots has been happening since I last posted.  I really am the worst blogger on the planet!

Firstly, I have just launched the crowd funding for my new film The Bedroom!

Its an erotic film that is set in one bedroom over six decades and looks at the development and changes in sex and sexuality in Australia!

I've got a great cast on board including Zahra Stardust, Angela White, Chloe B, Lily Rei and many more.

So please come and give us a hand making the bed!

In other news THREE films I have worked on over the past 12 months will be screening at this years Berlin Porn Film Festival!  They are" MusicBox" and"A Call for Help" by Morgana Muses and Zahra Stardust's film, "Fuck Dolls".  I wish I could be there this year!  Michelle Flynn and Ms Naughty are two of the filmmakers in focus!  Australians are rocking the festival!!

Casting for a new Erotic film!


We are looking for adult actors/performers for a new erotic explicit film from award winning feminist erotic filmmakers, Morgana Muses and Anna Brownfield. 

This film is a sexy comedy, so we are looking for people who can see the humor in sex!

We are looking to cast the following roles:


Female performer age 25-35 Fit, curvy, nerdy/quirky ‘bombshell’ (not necessarily blonde). Possess comedic timing and has the ability to produce a range of facial expressions-such as a look of shock, frustration, anger, amusement, jubilation.

Female performer 35-55. Well-groomed, feminine and pretty in a soft and understated way. Posses a woman next-door look. No tattoos, piercings, radical hair colour/style.

Female performer 35-45. Slim and angular body type. Will need to appear sharp, focused and in control-in mannerisms and slick in dress.

Four male performers aged between 20 -55 years.  While looks are not so important, you will need to have a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ and a desire to put female pleasure above and beyond your own.  The male roles do not have any dialogue but comic timing and a sense of humor are a plus!

Auditions will be held on Saturday 25th January in Melbourne

For more information please send a headshot along with your name, age and a brief description of your experience.

So where have you been?


Yeah, I’m sure that is what you have all been asking.  I must be one of the worst bloggers on the planet.  I always think about it and tell myself that I must do it, but then life and creating get in the way and I forget.

So what have I been doing?

LOTS!

Still from video made for Falling





Firstly, I did an art collaboration called Falling with Australian sculpture Annee Miron, Finnish chorographer Favela Vera Ortiz and Finnish dancer Sanne From.

 I haven’t made any video art before.  I’ve made plenty of experimental films in my early filmmaking days so there were elements of getting back to my roots, but I’m not sure about this art thing.  It seems a lot harder to make a living from it and I think you need to be even more dedicated to do art here in Australia than you do filmmaking.



Still from the film version of the dance Myoclonic.



Also, I had a chance to shoot some more footage for Doing it Her Way.  

Zahra Stardust

All of Australia’s feminist pornographers got together for Porno Camp.  It was a great weekend of skill sharing and networking.  I finally got to meet and interview the political Zahra Stardust, and the very reclusive Ms Naughty. As well as shoot some observational footage of the weekend.

I also got to meet Morgana Muse, who won first prize at the Joy awards last year.  I’m hoping to do an interview with her in the near future.  She generously let me shoot behind the scenes on her new film “New Tricks” which was great and made me miss making erotic films, but hopefully we will be collaborating on a project in the near future!

  


Finally, this Saturday 1st June at 11am  Making it Handmade” will be playing at the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery.  I’ll be there for chats and craft afterwards, so if you are anywhere near come and say Hello!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all.  I hope your year is filled with love, happiness and creative times. 

I have promised myself that I will write more regular blog posts...you must all be sick of hearing about how slack I am in this regard!

Until I return to teaching at Uni this year, I have a whole 2 months that I can power on with my own film work.  I also decided to do less teaching this year so that I can concentrate on filmmaking.

As stated in my last post I have been working on a new documentary entitled "Doing it Her way.", which is exploring the rise of feminist porn here in Australia and overseas too.  I actually filmed some of it while I was in Berlin in 2009.  At this stage I have been doing interviews with some of the amazing Australian women making great erotica/porn.

Liandra Dahl


The motivation to return to this project came after heated discussion with a student about women in pornography.  Yet again this cliche idea of women being victims within this industry came up, and I listened to stereotype after stereotype about what sort of women work in the adult industry.  So to that student, you know who you are, I'm not mentioning your name here as I know you have a desire for a political career and I'm sure being mentioned on a blog that talks about porn is not the type of publicity you would like!

Til next post.

The Band is finally here!

I always feel as though I should start my blog with an apology that it has been soooo long since I last wrote an entry.   Generally, I try to wait until a few things have happened in my filmmaking life before I write about them, but other times I wonder if I should just write about anything and everything.....but I'm guessing most of you don't want to know about the hand painted wrapping paper I made with my small child!

Now that I have finished teaching for the year and the arduous task of marking is behind me, I once again have 3 blissful months to concentrate on what I love best, making films. Its time that brings me great joy as I can actually embark on creating in my office.  During the teaching semester I have only one day a week here, which seems to be eaten up by admin, orders, tax, etc, so its lovely to finally be able to tackle the big creative things I have been wanting to all year!

It has arrived.


Yes its finally happened.  There is now an Australia release of The Band.  Its strictly limited numbers, so once they are gone, there will be no more!  Thanks to those who all pre-ordered, they all received a special thank you present.  Order your copy here.  It's a great present for someone who loves smut and music.

I've been working on a new documentary called "Doing it Her way!", more details to come soon.
