That is/was a good question Hamish.....after months of "lost the
tapes", "master missing", "need new computer", "need to get artwork
done" it is now finished!! Finally!!
Hamish, I just bought a new Pro DV Camera recently and got a new
iMAC (power baby!, power!) and finally the "lost" artwork back..all for
Christmas. I will get some covers for the Japan MMA doco printed very
early next month and will mail ya the first copy.
I also JUST finished a dvd of the last UQ Bjj & Submission Grappling
Comp and it will be ready in January too.
For those that are interested,..here's bringing you up to speed.
MMA Japan - This is a doco I did of my last trip to Tokyo back in April.
It features a full SHOOTO match between Jin Kazeta & Katsuya Toida
(sp?), training at Academa Az with Toshiyuki Wadu, being lost in
yakuza heavy Kabukicho after only 5 hrs sleep, halftime joking with Bas
Rutten at a Pancrase event, MMA toy shopping, my trip to PRIDE GP
Opening Round and a whole lot more. My first doco and I've shown
Elvis and Kezza this doco and they liked it alot.
The 4th UQ Bjj & Submission Grappling Comp - Even thou I got roped
into refing (blame Coop!!) for most of the bjj matches (D-Man caught
the gi action for me), I managed to shoot the submission grappling
stuff too. Edited together, the dvd runs for 1 and a half hours and
features a killer soundtrack. Some great matches on this dvd.
Anyone interested in a copy of these dvd's,..just holla. I will keep prices
cheap cause I do 'em for you guys, the fans, not for money.
Also,..I did a short doco (5 minutes) on Jacob "Dinosaur Jake" Sidic at
SPARTAN 11 which was entered into a short film comp and officially
selected to travel the country for said travelling short film festival.
Reviews were really good and I'm currently filming more on Jaje to
possibly extend the short into a feature length doco.
