3205 – Emily Collett, Theatre Designer

This gallery contains 8 photos.

I’ve decided that I’m a fan of days that just don’t turn out as planned. Of course, not in a ‘disastrous news’ kind of way -– no one likes them. No, I mean the days when your routines give way … Continue reading

Bernard & Vivienne, MIFF @ ACMI 2014

Wasn’t that movie amazing (My Name is Salt)? Are you enjoying the festival this year and do you have any MIFF tips?
V: Yes, that movie was really beautiful.
B: My MIFF tip is to book a number of films together and just go for and really enjoy the film festival.
V: Another MIFF tip is to avoid Danish Westerns!
Oh! do you mean Jauja? Yes agreed…. what a head scratcher! (Please leave a comment if you saw it and have a theory you would like to share!)
Thanks for letting me put you on my blog…I am sorry but I don’t think this lighting will do your photo justice! Enjoy the rest of the festival.

Sarah – MCG #NCAB14 Conference

Sarah – MCG #NACB14

Why are you at Melbourne’s MCG today?
I am working on the #NCAB14 conference.
The website says that the NCAB conference ‘explores how bullying affects people of all ages, and shares the latest research on strategies and solutions – to help reduce the prevalence and impact of bullying.’ Do you have a story or any learnings that you would like to share?
My most profound bullying memory is from primary school. A male teacher used to constantly embarrass and publicly harass me for not knowing my times table. He repeatedly called me stupid… It did not inspire me to change or help me to learn maths, that is for certain.

Susan – The Esplanade

Have you been here all day?
No, but most of the afternoon… It was the first sunny winter’s day that I have seen for sometime and I wanted to sell some books and records. 
Why do you want to sell them?
Because I am a writer and a critic and I have so-so many and I need to make more room in my apartment.

Michelle – Union St.

I love your wee shop, it is jammed full of treasures…
Yes, I sometimes think I should re name it Aladdin’s Cave!
Has your week yielded any treasures?
Yes, my family is safe. The (MH17) plane tragedy this week was terrible, just devastating.
I had family that flew the exact same route, the day before… my sister-in-law is Dutch. When I heard the news, I didn’t know if it was the plane they were on.
My heart goes out to all those who did lose a loved one on that plane.

We have loved the food, and how the city is laid out. It is very easy to get around.
