J’aimee: Here in Australia there’s a lot of policy making around these invisible lines which separate the various States and Territories which make up this wonderful country. In the past what this has often resulted in is missed opportunities for the Country as a whole – while the States battle it out to stake their ground one way or another.
But change is afoot, and when the fun and fabulous crew behind the Gold Coast Film Festival asked us to partner in presenting a Virtual Reality Showcase at HOTA (Home of The Arts) during their 2018 edition we rolled our leaves up and threw our energy behind what really was a fabulous weekend.
Every session was sold out – and a great time was had by all! This weekend was make possible with the support of Acer, HTC and Samsung and provided us with the opportunity to celebrate the amazing XR talent which nestles within SE QLD – both on the Gold Coast and in Queensland’s Capital – Brisbane.
I enjoyed the opportunity to curate an International Selection in what is my mid-season period for curation. The weekend included a panel featuring Cutting Edge’s Head of Innovation Benjamin Richards, Creative Director Luke Bubb from Moving Peaks and Think Black Line’s Douglas Watkin.
