1. Frank! "Four minutes ago, I rolled up my sleeves, tuned up ears and started in on listening to the submissions for the Masterclass Series and there you were to start things off with a mighty bang, boom and a big dose of wow. 'This is a Lie' is the stone cold truth, my friend. Quality inside and out - from top to bottom. I was right there with you all the way to the chorus but then my jaw kinda dropped and I lost it - I flipped for you! You are holding the goods, your talent is great and better things are on their way! Let's rock! Tops, Scott” Scott Mathews. Grammy Producer LA - reviews "This is a lie" (c).

completion of shooting music video - movement in white.  19 march 2010

 Shoot completed 19th March 2010.

I have completed shooting my new music video for "Movement in White".  FUN FUN!  Was a total BALL and compared to me making my Youtube lesson videos, they were like chalk and cheese. We have shot heaps of video.  And we went out to Flinders Street Station, in the early hours during peak time to shoot, when commuters were going to work.  Was crazy, all these people looking, with the speakers blowing out my song!  Surprised the police did not come to pack us in the divy van.  We drove out just prior to Kinglake, on the lonely road away from the town, in the bush fire ravaged area to shoot some scenes for  "Riding the Firestorm".  Then we went out to Sanctuary Lakes out West, to shoot another scene for the video.  The city skyline looks magical out there, plus the natural overgrowth of the wet lands looks good.  We travelled along the gravel road to the wet lands, mingled with the flys and dust, and finally got to our destination.  Seemed like we were driving non stop on Thursday.  Went out to St Kilda beach to shoot on the pier. It was a hot day, and all i was thinking about was taking a dive in the water.  We have done half of the video so far.  I have a promo of three songs.  Better quality at YT as they changed to a HD format there.

Well my crew involved in the video did a excellent job in finding a actress!!  So stocked. Her name is Kim Hately. We shot last half of the video recently. Well it's done!.  It was done indoors for the final scenes, and then out to China town.  Ended up having Chinese while there. Ended the shoot about 7pm  It was great to not do as much driving this time.  Can't wait to see the final cut.  Should be cool.
