Director meets iOS!

I have worked with Director since it was called Videoworks II. Macromind became Macromedia, who bought Flash and were bought by Adobe in turn. I have used Director to make countless CD-ROMS and kiosks. In the world of Flash you still need Director to turn it into a stand alone application for Mac or PC so it has never left the multimedia arsenal. Since Adobe took over Director the boffins in India have been all too quiet but finally they have released a version with a significant new feature - it exports to iOS!

I'm excited about my first app 'Gigli' which I am almost ready to run through the Apple gauntlet. It's part of a suite of apps I am producing for musicians.



St Kilda Music Walking Tours

I was a Punk playing in venues like St Kilda's Crystal Ballroom. A musician and friend, Adam Johnstone, conceived the idea of music walking tours through St Kilda and asked me to help him out. I'm a big believer in content and so I began digging out interviews I had done with Ballroom luminaries and others to create a history section for www.skmwt.com.au. I also began a Facebook group. Now I spend every second Saturday with Fred Negro and Fiona Lee Maynard (two of the greatest live performers I have ever seen) walking around St Kida with Rock legends and fans, sharing tall tales and true and soaking up St Kilda's incredible Rock culture. I feel like I am being paid to party and now I have a Who's Who of Australian Rock as friends. This project is all about preserving culture, celebrating art and honouring the greats. It also brings joy to everyone who participates.



Make Hummus Not War

Make Hummus Not War

I am very lucky to be working with Trevor Graham (Mabo) again. This time it's his wonderful unapologetically personal film Make Hummus Not War. It was a smash at festivals all around the world and recently aired on SBS. I did a lot of research on the humble chickpea and it now takes a dominant role in my kitchen - so cheap and so good for you! It's a tasty film and a tasty site with a how-to by a local Lebanese legend.



Claypots

I whipped up a site for the new PortSea Claypots Pop Up restaurant and devised an interactive menu for takeaway orders. Took me awhile as I had never done much back end before but my skills in (rippng off) PHP code and Javascrrtipt have vastly imrproved. Works great! portsea.claypots.com.au
