Standing There Productions members have so far had a very busy year.
Stewart continues his work in production and Lorin is currently at an intensive critical writing residency at Varuna, The Writers' House in the Blue Mountains. The residency is run by Geordie Williamson, chief literary critic at The Australian. The following week, she returns to Melbourne to take up her Hot Desk Fellowship at the Wheeler Centre. Her new website is here.
Rita has continued her work at Warp Films Australia including on their feature film Shopping which was shooting in the Kapiti Coast of NZ during March and April. Meanwhile the short she produced last year, Billie Pleffer's B I N O has continued its festival success after the two awards at the Berlinale, screening as a Dendy Finalist at the Sydney Film Festival and now, as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival in August.
Standing There Productions is working on a few other projects, which we can update you about in a few months. Thanks for those who have made contact recently through the website. We've been a bit snowed under but we'll be updating you here as often as we can.
