52 Tuesdays - 16 weeks in

Writer Matthew Cormack looking concerned.
16 weeks in and  52 Tuesdays has settled into its week to week momentum.  This week we celebrate the lovely and talented Nat Rogers who comes and finds us every week to take photos of the cast and crew. 52 Portraits of our two leads and as many portraits of each crew member as they are around for.  Nat's celebrating with us the incremental changes that happen in one year.
Nat says..."For me, the most important images I'm shooting every week are the two main characters, but interestingly the peripheral people, cast and crew are also forming a nice picture of how much heart and passion it takes to make a film like this."
Nat is a freelance photographer based in Adelaide who has recently returned from working in Thailand. You can check out more of her stunning work here www.natrogers.com.au

Life in Movement wins at Cinedans!

Life in Movement takes out the Dioraphte Cinedans Jury Award and the joint audience award at Cinedans Festival in Amsterdam.

The jury said the film was a "dramatic and moving document" and that Liedtke was "a considerable talent who reminds me of the young Pina Bausch". High praise indeed to the wonderful Tanja Liedtke, about whom the film was made.

The Jury award carries 7500 euro prize money, one of the largest for a dance on film festival.

The audience award also went to Life in Movement alongside another documentary.

Chuffed.
