Saw this multi-national feature-length 2003 animation accidentally last night on SBS.  Really impressive - and with a massive list of credits, as one would expect...

if you have something already completed that you would like to see screened, this film festival accepts animations.
short film entry costs $20.  entries must be postmarked no later than April 4 and arrive no later than 5pm April 8.  must have been completed since December 2006.  see
actually, i've just been looking at the info about attending the dungog film festival,
it sounds interesting (amongst many things they're having After Effects, Garageband, Final Cut Express and podcasting workshops) - too bad it's on the weekend before the last week of semester...

Texturing and Shading / pictures won't go onto my models
« on: October 10, 2007, 09:17:37 AM »
i spent several fruitless and frustrating hours last night in the lab trying to put images onto my models.  these are polygon models made in blender and exported as .obj files.  being inexperienced with texturing in maya i kept searching for some other little box i should tick or untick.  eventually i just tried making planes and spheres etc in maya and trying to put pictures onto them, which worked ok.  then i tried converting my models to nurbs and subdivs and the images went on in some sort of way.  then i tried converting back to polys and the images went on, but after multiple conversions the polys weren't the same as the original ones.  could it be that my original models have no UVs? (this finally occurred to me as i was driving home.) if they haven't, how do i get maya to generate some? i have posted one of my models at if someone knowledgeable can find time to have a look and see whether my suspicions are correct. thanks.

CSU General / sue's party
« on: June 12, 2007, 05:07:14 PM »
i finally received the get well card! - many thanks for all your good wishes.  on sat june 23rd i'm having a party to celebrate community spirit, friendship, the southern hemisphere astronomical new year, and renewal/the phoenix rising from the ashes.  it will be in the afternoon from about 2pm, and i've lined up some musicians i particularly admire (dave maloy, robert moss et al) to play. providing the weather is fine it will be at my place (between uranquinty and the rock), with a bus available (to save greenhouse gases and worrying about drinking and driving).  if it's rainy that day my alternative venue will be svpa courtyard/gallop gallery.  everyone welcome.  i'll put up directions about how to get to my place soon - just wanted to make this quick post so everyone will have as much notice as possible. 

UPDATE 15.6.07
(i’ve booked a uni bus to bring guests out - it will leave from accommodation at 1.30pm and pick up from any of the main street bus stops in town (east side - wave) and the bus stop at kooringal mall) *see new post (19.6.07) below
if you want to come out independently, drive to uranquinty, turn right across the railway line and proceed for approx 2km - take first left turn after you get out of town - Hanging Rock Rd - proceed along Hanging Rock Rd approx 5km (last 2 km is gravel road) to “Killearn” on right.  Go through gate and turn left, proceed about 200m

if it’s a rainy day the party will be at the uni - svpa courtyard and gallop gallery, and will start about 1.30pm to fit in with the ordinary uni bus times

if you need more info, please contact me
