What a Week!

And it hasn’t ended yet!

Sorry, I haven’t been able to do much here or on my website over the past week, but things have been hectic, thwart and generally appalling. Work is keeping me totally pre-occupied — with suddenly imposed deadlines and an impossible amount of material to find and coordinate for the RQF. If you know what that is, you’ll understand; if you don’t, believe me, you don’t want to know.

But on top of that I’ve been working on the edit of Daikaiju! 3: Giant Monsters vs the World, the CRC of which has to be at the printers next week to make sure we have copies for Conflux. Parts of it are running very late and I’m being forced to ask for a lot of goodwill from contributors — goodwill which they’ve been willing to give… so far.

At the same time, I’m coordinating a mini-film festival for Conflux, and for various bureaucratic reasons, I suddenly need to do a whole lot of paperwork for the Australian Film and TV Classification Board so that we’ll be allowed to show the films, as non-controversial as they may be. I’ll post about the program later. There’s some excellent work, including a couple of zombie films, a new Australian ghost flick and much else besides!

To make matters worse, there’s been some bad news, health-wise, regarding a friend.

Anyway, bear with me and I’ll soon have good news (hopefully) about Daikaiju! 3 and lots of great info about the Conflux film festival — including reviews and interviews with assorted filmmakers. Meanwhile, if you haven’t seen it already, here’s an interview I did a few weeks ago with the producer/writer of a new SF film, First World, which will be screened at the convention.
