Here comes another long overdue update…
I’ve just finished a 3-part documentary series for Essential Media to be screened on the Lifestyle Channel called ‘Neil Perry: High Steaks‘. Director Ruth Cullen followed celebrity chef Neil Perry of Rockpool fame for over a year during which deals were broken, restaurants were closed, hats were lost, babies were born, and Neil embarked on his most ambitious venture, Rockpool Bar and Grill at Melbourne’s Crown Casino.
Neil Perry: High Steaks screens on the Lifestyle channel Monday 21st May at 9pm, and on the following two Mondays. Of course, being pay-TV you really can’t miss it as it additionally screens at the following times. Check out the promo here.
In other news, Welcome to Wonderland was selected to screen at the Byron Bay Film Festival. I hope some of you ended up making it! A few reviews and more info about the film generally can be found here.
SBS also ran a webchat following the screening of ‘In Search of Bony’ hosted by Lisa Matthews (dir.) and Caroline Baum (prod.) which might be of interest to those who caught the doco.
