So, I thought it was about time DIY posted about some of the interesting things going on in 'ol London town, where I have currently just wrapped up production on my first documentary short with the NFTS (watch this space for more info to follow!).

On Wednesday night I went to the Roxy Cinema in Borough to see their monthly "Rotorreliefs" where fellow Summer Docs student Lisa Forrest had a screening of her Documentary short "Hairytale". A really interesting and inspiring story, check it out here.

The highlight of the night for all of us was first time filmmaker Andy Wilson's treat, "Joseph". A beautifully shot and mesmerising piece of work, I have been thinking of it ever since. Watch it on his website and you, too, will soon be dreaming of white huskies, Bob Seger and caravan sunsets.

Barbara Bolt - "Neon"

Barbara Bolt's latest exhibition, "Neon", is opening next week. This is exciting in itself, but for me it's EXTRA exciting, the reason being it features a painting of me in it!

The exhibition goes from the 15th September to 4th October 2009. It's at Catherine Asquith Gallery (48 Oxford Street Street, Collingwood Vic 3066).

I've known Barb for a number of years now (she was one of my first tutors at uni), and last year David Shiyang and I made a short documentary about her for the BBC World Service called "Neon Blue". Now things have been turned on their head a little bit, and this time Barb has done a project that features Dave and I, and the name of the exhibition references the documentary. Talk about a head trip!

Barb is an amazing artist, and it's an incredible honour to be a part of her exhibition. Get down and check it out people! If you're not convinced yet, here's a clip of Barb in action:
