For all my disparaging comments on glittering events I actually went to one the other day. It was the premiere of the Paul Cox film “Force of Destiny” which opened the Melbourne International Film Festival. I hate to admit it, but it was a great night and such a pleasure to see some of the film people again. At last the film is released and it’s journey has begun. I will always be grateful for the way Paul emphasised with my work, taking my solid earthly things and translating them into his wonderfully etherial medium. It was elating to see my little creations on the big screen in front of thousands of people and gratifying to think that they contributed in a small way to the success of the film. Here are some shots from the big night.

Dan Mitton (grip) and Jack Kenneally (gaffer), who graciouly overlooked my incompetence and gave me a glimpse into their arcane craft.
