BREAKING: Paul to co-direct Melbourne Fringe Festival production later this year. (It will be a multi-cultural, possibly multi-lingual theatre piece on the vexed theme of ‘identity’.)
Elsewhere, Paul is on track to have his existentialist tome released sometime in 2019. The book is called The Pointless Revolution (which is sooo Paul) and subtitled The Economics Of Doing Whatever You Want (also quite typical of him; libertine kinda guy that he is).
Indeed, truth be told, Paul is already at the design & proofing stage with the publisher, so things on the book front are looking very active and positive. In fact, he already has an author profile on the publisher’s site, which you can peruse right here.
On other fronts, he has just written an episode of a satircal TV show for a jetsetting producer friend of his, who is off to London/Berlin/etc soon to work the various rooms. (Apparently the comedy thing is about a bunch of elitist art wankers. Go figure. ^^)
Rumours also persist of a European based producer taking an option on one of Paul’s darker and more psychological screen concepts; but as ever with film types, the talk is good but … put it this way, Paul is not holding his breath.
Aside from books and filmic gossip, and as a participant in the so-called ‘gig economy’, Paul has several other projects concurrently bubbling – inc: a political satire for the stage, article commissions and gigs for clients in the ‘impact investing’ space.
Obviously, our intention here is for you to be inspired and hire Paul – cos y’know, he really is good at what he does. Also, you’d be supporting the notion of the sole trading artist/artisan and helping to keep alive the somewhat fin de siecle vision of the bohemian creative living in a loft making art and stuff.
Speaking of art ‘n’ stuff, here’s a very ‘critic-y’ piece he published back in April. It’s one of those very clever sounding things he likes to do. We can’t quite understand it but you might.
Meanwhile, in ‘random back catalogue land’ we have uncovered this TV gem Paul conceived & directed back in 2013 with the help of his production buddy Eddie Postma. ‘The Language of Light’ stems from their time spent making TV for the Chinese Communist Party. It’s a beautiful piece about photography and cross-cultural understanding set in the great Aussie bush (Mildura to be exact).
Btw – don’t know what fin de siecle means? Google it. It’s a pretty cool historical/cultural reference and, y’know, you’ll be able to slide it into your next dinner party conversation. Seriously, you’ll thank us for the tip. 😉
