Bendigo was its name-o

I know nothing about home loans. I went for a casting at the end of last year that called for a “young stylish woman” (ahem, yes, thank you). The character is a young mum (aren’t they all) who’s heading off to work, leaving hubby to tend to the child. I took my daughter along too,…

Surprise! I’m on telly again!

Remember a few months ago when I said I’d filmed a new TVC? Well, it’s finally finished. It’s for Kinder Surprise. The campaign’s called “Give some back”. Essentially it’s trying to capture a series of little magic moments when our children (or “kinder”) surprise (or “überraschen”) us. It’s really just taking the brand name at its…

This morning I had two babies

That’s me, serenely post-partum.  I’m tempted to do a comparative study. Side-by-side stills. One of me after actually giving birth and one of me after giving birth for television.

All of the background…

In time for the new financial year (oh, I nearly forgot: Happy NFY everyone!), I designed their new logo, letterhead, business cards and website. I modified a template from one of my favourite web designers, AJ…

My red-headed stepchild

Not stepchild, really. Fake child. He’s not my child at all. Apart from in this 30-second commercial: I filmed it a few weeks ago. It took two days to shoot. That’s me, out-of-focus and in the background, folding clothes. So like me. The kid, my kid, is this little flame-haired tearaway called Zach. He is…
