FEATURED GIG

Posted in Uncategorized on March 22, 2011 by joshgroom

My photograph of the John Steel Singers got the half page, full color treatment in Drum media this week as part of the featured Gig of the week…

In other news…   our secret crew member on Redd Inc. will be giving a Masterclass in his area of expertise for the DVD / Blue Ray extra features…

I’m so excited I can’t feel my feet.

ANOTHER BIG WEEK DOWN… ANOTHER ONE COMING…

From shooting and directing a Harris Farm TVC first thing Monday morning, to being on the set of Redd Inc. a few days – and interviewing several key cast and crew members, to shooting The John Steele Singers & Jonathon Boulet gig at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville last night – it’s been a big week.   Cap it off with a Stone Temple Pilots gig tonight at the Hordern…  I’m feeling tired but exhilarated…

Amongst all that other stuff I’m working at Postbox at the moment on the new season of The Great Australian Doorstep and we’ve just had a big break-through in our feature length documentary to be completed later this year…

I’m not getting much sleep…  Or seeing my gorgeous girlfriend nearly as much as I’d like…  Let alone hang out with our two awesome cats, Frisbee and Noodle…  But I know I will look back on this time as one of the most exciting of my career…

Again, I wish I could say more…

And I will…    soon.

Till then…  Here’s a little Johnny Cash / Zack Snyder awesomeness…
