It's the little things that make us happy some days. Yesterday it was discovering that the @thepublicstudio handle had been... liberated on Instagram and Twitter. So now we have a gorgeous symmetry across all platforms. This calls for some kind of chocolate, obviously.
3rd June, 1&2. By Nicholas, feat. Ming-Zhu.
I'm very excited to announce that we've begun working on another new project (while we have the pot boiling on several others) - it's still a bit of a secret, but this time it's a collaboration with a very good friend of ours who is a thrilling writer and immense wealth of both information and strident artistic passion. We're still beside ourselves that he said yes, but in the mean time - while we get over it - we've had to knuckle down and start work on the thing.
So - what I can tell you is that it is a stylised narrative short film that toys with the idea of suspended rules of reality - and what happens when the line between reality and fantasy blur. Oh, and the working title is "Certainty".
Here's a small selection of images I've put together in the process of script development.
More, quite obviously, to come. - MZ.
Last Year in Marienbad (1961) By director, Alain Resnais.
Empty salons. Corridors. Salons. Doors. Doors. Salons. Empty chairs, deep armchairs, thick carpets. Heavy hangings. Stairs, steps. Steps, one after the other. Glass objects, objects still intact, empty glasses. A glass that falls, three, two, one, zero. Glass partition, letters.
To celebrate Federation Square's bonus screening of our collaboration with Chamber Made Opera and Zierle' & Carter on Z&C's film-of-the-performance Between Lands and Longings, we made you some gifs!
The screening is at 8pm tomorrow evening at Fed Square, which yes - is on the corner of Swanston & Flinders Streets, Melbourne. See ya at Chockie Buddha. :)
