The process diary of film director Glendyn Ivin
During production of Seven Types of Ambiguity I created a portrait of each actor in an attempt to discover some the mystery or ambiguity of their character. This became a process of exploring the character's 'tone' in a single image and then distilling some of this into their performance and presence onscreen. Each of these images became a touchstone in creating the look and feel of the series.
First teaser for Seven Types Of Ambiguity. A series I set up and directed the first two episodes of last year for Matchbox and ABCTV. The series is unique in that each episode is a different character's perspective of a person involved in the disappearance of a child. I was lucky enough to work with Alex Dimitriades and Hugo Weaving as the first two characters. Such generous and wonderful actors. I'll write more on the production soon...
Busy week falling into early pre-production on my new project SAFE HARBOUR. Monday and Tuesday was spent doing some initial exploring of Brisbane where the 4 x 1 hour mini-series will be shot from mid May 2017.

How amazing it would be to live by the ocean. Perched on the edge of a rock, remonded daily of the epic scale and proportion of nature and the beautiful world we live in. I hope I'd never grow tired of the ever changing spectacle that roll out every single day and night. I think this would be similar if living amongst giant mountains. Surely having so much big stuff around you helps you put the small stuff into perspective.
I took the below photos about 20 minutes apart, from the balcony of a friends house in South Coogee. I stood and watched that huge cloud tumble over us and out to sea and then the 'wolf moon' floated up from behind the horizon, all blood red and stunning. The cloud and the moon helped put a few things into perspective.
