Swallows Part One – film

28 Aug

I’ve finally gotten the comic reading for Swallows into a rough film.
I stutter a few times in the narration – but I’m not terribly worried about that – I kinda like it!
Enjoy

If you like the film – consider buying the book! 

Aurélie Neyret in Hobart

26 Aug

I was asked by Rachel Tribout to be the interviewer for the interstellar illustrator and comic-artist from France Aurélie Neyret who recently came to Hobart to talk at an AGDA night. It was a fantastic evening, very well attended – and the audience gushed at Aurélie afterwards, which was great to see. A wonderful artist, and I hope to see more of her works translated to English soon. I know First Second are publishing the comic series – Les carnets de Cerise in 2017 – which is super exciting.

Long Weekend short film

7 Jul

This 16 minutes short-film was made from the performance that was commissioned by Brian Ritchie for MONA FOMA 2016 in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The live version, just like this film version, was narrated by Craig San Roque with music by Joshua Santospirito, with visuals projected onto the big screen at the Odeon Theatre and then repeated again at Cinemona in the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in January, 2016.

The art and story in this film is extracted from the award-winning graphic novel of the same name, which can be purchased from sankessto.com/product/the-long-weekend-in-alice-springs The Long Weekend is the cult favourite graphic novel, adapted from an original 2004 essay that explores the Jungian concept of the cultural complex; an idea about group behaviour that was left largely unexplored until very recently in the academic world.

Neil Gaiman – “this Australian graphic novel is the best thing I’ve been handed to read in ages”

The Australian Review – “… one of the oddest and most rewarding Australian comics that has yet appeared”
