Since his last film was such a disaster, Clint vows he'll make one more then call it quits. He realises most of his DVD collection is horror, so why not make a horror? It always annoyed him that Picnic At Hanging Rock was held up as the quintessential Aussie film, so Clint wants to make one where they all turn into zombies and get slaughtered. What follows are details of the shoot; a degree of success for Hanging at Picnic Rock; a new girlfriend; another animation teaching job; more shooting; then a desire to "Run away and hide' which is what he did, getting a job in a media centre at Balgo, WA. The job was film production supervisor for the motika (motor car) project, part of which was a series of short films reflecting the impact of the motika on Aboriginal culture. Clint finds some cultural hurdles. It's hard to direct a film because you don't tell people what to do. Well, then more stuff happens, all totally fascinating, but I'll wrap this up by noting that Clint ends this issue with some philosophical musings, looking back and admitting many failures, but some success, and how maybe it's not the goal but the journey; meeting cool people, all that important stuff.
Great job. Highly recommended.
