    Gods Make Comeback

    ‘These accusations spread (as is usually the case) from the mere fact of the matter being investigated and several forms of the mischief came to light. A placard was put up, without any signature, accusing a large number of persons by name.

    ‘Those who denied they were, or had ever been, Christians, who repeated after me an invocation to the Gods, and offered adoration, with wine and frankincense, to your image, which I had ordered to be brought for that purpose, together with those of the Gods, and who finally cursed Christ–none of which acts, it is into performing–these I thought it proper to discharge.

    ‘Others who were named by that informer at first confessed themselves Christians, and then denied it; true, they had been of that persuasion but they had quitted it, some three years, others many years, and a few as much as twenty-five years ago. They all worshipped your statue and the images of the Gods, and cursed Christ.’

    I find it disturbing that veteran journos like Barrie Cassidy and Paul Kelly talk about the info shutdown as a good political strategy.

    I find it alarming that auditing has been privatized and handed over to the Business Council.

    I am indignant about the secrecy over the treatment of asylum seekers.

    You know as well as I do that JG was not Snow White. Unlike you Neil I do not have partisan political views, an either/or perspective. The Liberals are far too radical for me. Too Stalinist in their materialism. I am on old-fashioned gal who values traditions and institutions which have served us well, one being a media which has a clear delineation between news and commentary.

    And Egg, I do not believe the Business Council should have a central role in auditing when members have a vested interest.

    I agree that party politics should be stripped from the asylum seeker issue. It is appalling that we do not know what is happening to those poor souls.

    I am glad you are slapping your thighs Neil.
    There is a certain rigidity of thought given to the fundamentalist which precludes that person from arguing from an objective stance informed by principle and ethics.
    According to the strictures placed upon fundamentalist thought patterns if something is not one thing then it must be the other. For example if I do not find TA and his band appealing then I must be a lefty ALP camp follower, your counterpart on the dark side. I can assure you Neil that is far from the case. Cue laughter from Neil.

  62. October 26, 2013 7:11 pm

    Well..

    1stly… Screen and Media at Tafe is not really usefull for getting employment but it will teach you the basics I guess. I have 2 masters 1 from the College of fine arts and one from UTS but that means nothing when it comes to work. Its pretty much all about your show reel and contacts.

    2ndly…Everything is outsourced now days, so you must make your own luck. Most of the good stuff is coming out of the ABC, bless em. Its a very very tough industry and my advice is to learn all about every aspect of film making as that is the new paradigm. I edit myself, write , direct, do the sound and compose which is hard work. Making films is expensive. You don’t need to go to Uni to make films but you will meet lots of like minded people and concentrate on your craft. As making films is all about storytelling , if you know fuck all about life your stories will be shit

    3rdly… The way films are financed in Australia is very very broken, Screen Australia is fucked. The amount of money they spend on one shit feature you could make 10-15 great features by seeding great idea’s… Fuck giving any money to Channel 9 and Baz fucking Lurman http://youtu.be/zGx7Nv2l1Vk

    For script writing I use Celtx, its free, industry standard and fantastic. I was using Final draft but switched over as that’s what they were using at COFA and I haven’t looked back since.

    https://www.celtx.com/index.html

    You can buy a decent camera for about 5 grand now (lenses are expensive) and subscribe to Adobe CC and you have everything you would ever need. The main advise I give people is work on as much stuff as possible for free as you never know wher it leads. My current film is one in which I am calling in favors from my bank, which is how most films under 300 grand are done.

    I hope this is usefull…oh and do what my dad told me, get another avenue as an income stream to support yourself, I have a trade and a degree in electrical engineering.

    Funding is/has always been a pain!

    … and egg, if he’s been in the industry for a decade I’d suggest seeking out a uni rather than TAFE and seek a mature entry* – online is GOOD! …

    … and this is the killer from Ricky …

    Its pretty much all about your show reel and contacts.

    If you think about it, the same applies to most jobs!

    Ricky, as for cameras … 5K? You can actually pick up a consumer camera to “practise with” these days for a 1/4 of the price … I defy you to pick the quality on TV (unless you are making a film for distribution)

    Footnote: I have a ten yo g/son who is gung-ho about movie-making … I went looking for a Vid camera for him … I couldn’t believe this …

    He has already spent time at uni, to no great advantage in the real world, that’s why this short course is preferable. He’s already a good editor and cameraman, so all he needs is to meet like minded individuals and allow camaraderie to blossom.

    If he has been in the industry for 10 years and is a good shooter and editor, he is halfway there and would qualify for postgrad status as TB (who insists on calling me by my dead fathers name and not my christened name). He wont pick up much at Tafe that he does not already know. Art School is a wank fest I can tell you from personal experience but I have learnt some great stuff from some amazing mentors there in Storytelling, scrip writing and directing. I have an advantage of working as a music producer for 15 years so the skills (dealing with creative people) transfer well. It depends where you are but I would recommend UTS, SYdney film School or AFTRS in Sydney or any reputable Film school attached to a Uni..

    Forget JMC and SAE they are bullshit. Screen Australia and many of these places offer short courses that shit all over Tafe. Online stuff is only for tutorials and resources, that is par for the course and a weekly thing (I subscribe to Adobe cloud and they have tutorials)

    As far as cameras go, I was an early adopter of DSLR film making and was shooting on a Canon 5Dmk 2 DSLR on Thursday (with very expensive Ziess Glass). I have a Black Magic Cinema camera and I would check out the Blackmagic Pocket camera. Its a pro camera for 1000 dollars and comes with Davinci resolve grading software.

    I agree all industries are hard and talent gets you only so far, the cream rises to the top through persistant hard work, dedication and resourcefulness. Like the record business where I had stuff out there winning, it doesn’t guarantee anything or you will ever work again as there are hundreds of people unemployed, pitching, undercutting and bullshiting.

    They conservatives changed the tax laws in NZ and decimated the industry there in 1 fowl swoop, which cost them Spartacus. We in Australia are just hanging in there…just

    Brandis as Ats minister and Turnbull don’t fill me with much hope i’m afraid, they have no 4K or convergence vision which is where things are headed, they are too busy scoring cheap shots being infadels and short sighted Luddites sucking Murdoch’s dick.

    He went to North Sydney TAFE and got a job at Grundy, then Channel 9 where he became a technician on the Morning Show. The industry is very unstable and he now finds himself working as a patching operator at the Hub, nice crowd, terrible hours.

    Dunlop’s straying mind.

    A lot of good points and few howlers:

    “His current tactic of starving the beast, of strictly controlling media access, of blocking government agencies from giving the media information, of only giving interviews to those he knows will conduct the interview from a kneeling position”

    Obviously missed the Leigh Sales interview.

    “D’uh. The Gillard/Rudd governments ran an efficient, tight economy.”

    Huh? In what time frame does Tim see Australia generating a quarter of a trillion dollars of budget surpluses? A lot of money was pissed against the wall by Labor and a lot of damage to the economy was done by them.

    “As Paul Krugman noted in a recent piece about the behaviour of international credit agencies, “… just as the austerity drive isn’t really about fiscal responsibility, the push for ‘structural reform’ isn’t really about growth; in both cases, it’s mainly about dismantling the welfare state.”

    Maybe it is about avoiding the fate of the PIIGS? Bloated welfare states aren’t all they are cracked up to be. Ask the Greeks.

    “Climate change denialists inside and outside the Abbott Government cannot be argued out of their position on the matter. If you want to address the issue, that’s your starting point.”

    Certainly hysterical bullshit arguments like the wild predictions of Flannery et al won’t cut it. Blaming every weather event (like the recent bushfires or Typhoon Haiyan) on climate change just makes alarmists look stupid when they get fact-checked.

    Why not try a logical argument – say explain exactly what effect a carbon tax will have on global temperature? The low credibility of alarmists stems from their politicised approach to science and their rejection of the notion that they should open their data and models up to scrutiny by critics. I was an alarmist until I started to think for myself.

    Please explain your opinion … lot of damage to the economy

    The GFC is NOT over … it will collapse again … hopefully on Wall St … disastrously as nations collapse as in 1939 … it took a decade in the last century … I hope the next generation is free of war … every generation in my lifetime has experienced it …

    In 1930 (The Great Depression) governments tried (what seemed obvious) and retracted spending – it was massive failure … in 2008 governments attempted the opposite to generate work and spending (the free market relies on populations spending to survive) to stimulate the multiplier effect … Australia was lucky that we had funds to spend, that other nations didn’t and we STILL (its called emphasis not shouting – unless ALL your comment are caps) have the best economy in the world!

    The problem with both these “theories” is that it is difficult to determine when to start and when to stop …

    As for printing money (ie qualitative easing – now why would you use such fudge words?) … the Germans tried this in 1935 and inflation rose to the dizzying heights of 1000% … need to go to war … 😯

    The point I’m making is that the current government may just get its chance to go down in history … pretty soon … and as history repeats … as world economies collapse again, they’ll fold in a crisis and offer the reins to the ALP … only this time we have Fuckwits™ running the ALP too … which means we are all FUCKED!

    ‘I was an alarmist until I started to think for myself.’

    The satirist is out of the office, so I’ll take that.

    I was also an alarmist until the early 1990s and having a casual interest in weather I began reading outside my comfort zone. It was apparent that man made global warming is a hoax, with huge political implications.

    The media has been relentless in pumping out propaganda, while the Klimatariat in all its exulted glory has aided and abetted the masquerade, with politicians the dupes.

    Its all going to end very badly for the warmists, glad I’m on the right side of history.

    ‘HOUSEMATE wanted: must be clean, lacking in almost all personal boundaries, willing to fork out $170 a week and able to live with up to three others in a single room.

    ‘To-let notices such as this are peppering real-estate websites, with room shares that were once reserved for low-income university students and backpackers now increasingly the domain of young workers and budding professionals.’

    “I don’t want to force my own understanding or interpretation of my paintings on the audience. The mixture of images within each of my paintings is like a combination of controversial elements in life. We don’t have to understand everything we see in each painting. Like life, we cannot understand everything that we have seen or experienced. In my paintings, Eastern and Western, historical and modern opposites coexist, reflecting the reality of today’s lifestyle.” -Zhong Biao

    FMD! I don’t think I’ve ever agreed with Bolt twice in two days before… 😯

    * Important Note: I absolutely accept that there was an Armenian Genocide…

    Dunny, l don`t see how you`re agreeing with bolt.
    He merely copied this snippet,

    ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘A WOMAN who killed five of her pets when she burned down her house because she wanted a new one has been jailed.

    Over 10 years, Donna Fox set fire to three homes owned by the Department of Human Services, the last because she was sick of waiting for other accommodation.’ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘

    from this link, (not his post)

    lt`s probably fodder for his followers to foam over, but having 3-houses burnt down and no care/supervised-home for possibly mentally-ill looks poor on Govts-Fed-and-State.

    ‘A WOMAN who killed five of her pets when she burned down her house because she wanted a new one has been jailed.”

    Did she want a new pet, or a new house…? 😯

    She wanted a new cat.
    Her old pussy wasn`t fluffy enough.

    It was a scoop, but the PM applied the gag and the media buckled. The police, on the other hand, are not persuaded.

    ‘For those unsure of where things are at, the police interest remains high. The police are due to go back to court in a couple of weeks… Earlier this year, police seized hundreds of documents under the warrant, which specifically sought files held by Slater & Gordon relating to Wilson and Gillard, including her personnel files, invoices, travel records and documents from the firm’s partner meetings relating to Gillard and the AWU.’

    ” l don`t see how you`re agreeing with bolt.”

    Hmmmm, how can I put this?

    I too see a certain ‘entitlement’ mentality, which goes beyond ‘disadvantaged’.

    I have little tolerance for the disingenuously unemployed these days.

    I don’t do what I do to support humans who expect a free ride. Least of all those who aren’t satisfied with their particular flavour of free ride…and see arson as a form of negotiation.

    For the love of dog… 🙄

    I took a stroll past the cafe just now after you guys mentioned something about some ear piece conspiracy, where apparently Abbott gets his answers sent to him during interviews…

    Un-fkn-believable! Those earpieces are commonplace in interviews! Stage performers use them all the time too – it’s so that they can hear the interviewer’s questions, as well as how their own voice sounds in the responses..

    Honestly, if the cafe mob think this is genuinely some sort conspiracy where Abbott’s getting his answers spoon fed, they’ve truly lost whatever tenuous connection to reality they once held…

    We all know that Catching Up’s fucked in the head, but seriously, Minglo thinking that there must be something in this is just fkn hilarious!

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
