Well what a year it’s been.
Full of ups and downs, learning curves and experiences that will forever change our lives.
PHILIP BLOOM TOUR DOWNUNDER
We started the year with a bang. Meeting once again, filming and hanging with Philip Bloom and the team which included Ric Creaser if the Pin mic heritage. Truly an honour and a super nice bunch of guys…. and girl (Sarah) Cheers. We learnt first hand the importance of shooting, editing and distributing a piece within a 48hr period as explained quite honestly by Philip to our member and editor for this project, Ben Sengsouvanh.
Please see the video we produced.

Next was the creation of our private facebook page which allowed us to talk and ask questions without broadcasting it to the entire world, Direct Tweeting each other as some of us don’t use Twitter and some don’t answer mobile texts.
This was setup by Caspian Kai Pantea and has been an invaluable tool for the club so thank you Caspian.
This has also allowed us to get some perspective on some difficult shoots and to vent our frustrations.
Ben recently graduated with a Masters in Film and Video/Masters of Arts (Creative Enterprises) and has recently taken a position at PurpleMonkey shooting weddings in the weekends.
We are super proud of his accomplishment and since graduating has been busy writing, shooting and editing short films, one of which was with one of our earliest members, Rob Easton a true technician.
So I guess we could call Ben the ‘Master of Arts’.
TOP SECRET MISSIONS
There is one member who will remain nameless that has actually appeared on 60minutes and flown to Africa to assist in reducing the senseless killing of Rhinos and Elephants for their Ivory in order to allow some inferiority complexed, tiny penised man have better sex….or something like that. Really I never.
That aside this founding member has made me very proud to be his friend. He is too generous with his time and I owe a great deal to him. We have had our ups and downs but I still love him even though he prefers women….haha gotcha.
Finally we were privileged enough this year to shoot Pausefest 2012…..and meet Samuel Richards a veteren (old) of 20 years as a sound recordist in NZ. It’s been great to have met him and I have had the pleasure of working with him on a couple of corporate jobs as a soundy/B camera.
So Kia Ora Bro.
This was MelbourneDSLR 2012.
