abi tuckerAbi Tucker (Secret Life of Us, McLeod’s Daughters) and I have been collaborating on a song for the end of Surviving Georgia based on themes I wrote for the film. It’s sounding great too! Gotta hurry though, because the mix is in less than a week!

Feature Film debut

April 30, 2010

OK, very exciting news! I’m currently working on my first feature. It’s called ‘Surviving Georgia’ and it stars Pia Miranda, Holly Valance, Shane Jacobson, Spencer McLaren and Caroline O’Connor. It’s directed by the wonderful Sandra Sciberras and Kate Whitbread (Caterpillar Wish). It’s a great film, beautifully acted. More news to follow soon…

Meanwhile work on ‘The Making of Modern Australia’ is continuing. I’ve finished 2 of the 4 eps and the 3rd is almost in the can. I’ve squeezed in the feature into a break between Eps 3 and 4 which was very fortunate.
