BREAKING: Paul’s book, The Pointless Revolution: The Economics Of Doing Whatever You Want is slated for an October release in both ‘e’ and print formats. You can view Paul’s author profile on the publisher’s website right here. (Btw, we love the photo.)
Meanwhile…Paul is currently co-directing a Melbourne Fringe Festival production called My Names. Conceived and directed by a young Chinese PhD student (Qian Yu), and staring two ‘international students’ it examines the vexed theme of ‘identity’ through the prism of its young creators. Paul’s role is to assist the director and performers in the rehearsal/devising process. (Word is, he’s really enjoying it thus far.)
Find out more about the play 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. ^^)
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. 😉
