Abstract

A performance for the award winning short film Spectre, screened at the Woodland Film Festival in August 2013, and also screened at the Forum Cinema in Wagga Wagga. My role within this project was acting in the lead performance in this award winning short film. It constitutes a performance created specifically for a recorded medium. A film noir, or neo-noir, it has now screened at the Forum Cinema in Wagga Wagga, and successfully in competition at the Woodland Film Festival in Tumbarumba, NSW, in August 2013, where it won Best Film in its category; directed by Ben Wotton. As a black and white film noir murder mystery, the film explores the psyche of an historian tracking a Spectre throughout documented appearances over decades-long crime scenes. The film is notable for its creative use of visual effects, sound editing, and stylish lighting design. The Woodland Film Festival is a leading regional, award winning rural short-film festival, bringing national and international short films from around Australia and France. It was publicised at a national level in online and media journalism, including radio and television coverage. CSU was identified in relation to my performance and background within theatre, art gallery and media works. http://www.woodlandfilmfestival.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/wff-festival-program-v02.pdf Woodland Film Festival - 2nd - 5th August 2013
