Goodmorning folks! We are coming to you live from THE SHOOT OUT Film Festival in Newcastle, two hours north of Sydney. It's now 2-20am and the 24 hour non-stop film competition is on! The first film of the three we are shooting, Thump and Julie, is about a day in the life of a marionette, being performed, as you can see, by 'human' actors, trying as best they can to loose their ego and be the best marionette possible! The competition demands short films to be made with specific props and scenes in shot, but with no editing. It's almost three in the morning, so stay tuned and you'll be updated on the action in the morning, if we eventually get some sleep!
