Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, I am thankful for the different sets of friends that I have. Friends I know through school, Scouts, Gang Show, online game show groups, online art galleries (including deviantART), and lastly (but by no means least) my own family.

On a sad note however, those of you who are familiar with the summer sport of cricket would have heard that Australian batsman Phillip Hughes received a head injury during a Sheffield Shield match played in Sydney on Tuesday. Early this afternoon (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time), Hughes was pronounced dead, just days before what would have been his 26th birthday this coming Sunday.

Hughes had played at various levels for the South Australian team, also Worcestershire in England and the Australian team.

IN MEMORIAM - PHILLIP HUGHES, 1988-2014

I recently took part in the filming of "Game On", a sci-fi short film set inside a first-shooter computer game. In this film, my character (Gil, a cleaner within that game) is very eager to get into the game action, but the combination of his enthusiasm and recklessness results in him getting more action than he bargained for...

This film was nominated for an award at the Sci-Fi Film Festival which was held in Parramatta, Australia, over the weekend.

And now, in its full 6-minute glory, my film début in the sci-fi short film GAME ON.



Game On, Take One by BrendanR85

Thought I should share some exciting news (finally!).

Last month I participated in the filming of “Game On”, a sci-fi short film that’s set within a computer game.

[that pic of me with the clapperboard to be inserted here tonight]

I play the role of Gil, a cleaner who wants to get into the guns-and-glory action of the computer game, while his co-worker Val (another cleaner) tries to keep Gil in check. But after a reckless call-out and a technical mishap in between games, Gil finds out the hard way what his actions lead to.

During this week I’d heard the film was placed into the final for a competition that’s happening during a science-fiction film festival that’s taking place in western Sydney over the weekend. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how it turns out. (I’ve already seen the film just before they fixed up some sound effects, and I promise you it’s an interesting ride!)

I’ll post a clip of the film as soon as it’s available.

Based in Sydney, Australia, I have a very keen interest in photography, travel, music, theatre, Scouts, trivia and game shows (though the order of preference may change from time to time).

Diagnosed with Asperger syndrome (a form of autism) at age 4, at first glance I look like any ordinary twentysomething just willing to do anything (such as doing my first ever short film shoot - two days to do something like a ten minute short film? It's possible).
