8, 7, 6...

 I am about to head to Berlin with a proposal for the Berlin Today Award.

I'm working with Dell Stewart on a kids' animation project we will run at Artplay in mid- April, thanks to a city of Melbourne Grant.

Both of the above are cut-out animation projects so there is some handy crossover with research/ development.

I've been working at ACMI (The Australian Centre for the Moving Image) on  video content for a new online project about the relationship between places and the moving image. I will also continue my work this year as a Curator for the National Film and Sound Archive's Australian Screen website.

I have received a Goethe Institut language scholarship, which will mean another trip to Berlin later in the year. If my Berlin Today Award film proposal is able to progress further, this would also mean more time spent in Berlin. Yay!

Counting down to a busy and varied and hopefully fun year...
