Any Australian Melbournites here?
Heya all,

I am all the way down in Melbourne Australia, just interested to see if any ozzies are in here, could exchange ideas or places to go.... so on..


Chris Hurd August 29th, 2002 04:22 AM

We do have a smattering of Ozzies here... I'm sure some of them will make themselves known to you... one of our moderators, Adrian Douglas, is from down under but currently resides in Japan. I think we have a banana bender in here and a Kiwi or two and some Sydneysiders and maybe a sandgroper.

I have never been, but wish very much to travel under someday. Most of the regulars here know what a huge Midnight Oil fan I am.

Great to have you with us and stick around; sometimes this place can be as busy as Bourke street in the rush hour. Or browse through our extensive archive of posts, there's a lot here to read, you'll need a cut lunch and a waterbottle to get through it all.

heh heh
Banana benders, it has been a real while since i have heard that!!!

Bourke st has really slowed down in recent years, you are more likely to find traffic on flinders st now, or out of the city on st kilda rd and/or bourke RD.

Yeah i have been scanning through the archives... loads of info, but a lot of it too technical for me.

I guess that is why i am in search of smart people from my town to find out where to go to find good/cheap things and people who know their shit :)

I'm from Melbourne... Florida. I may not be Australian, but I watch the Croc Hunter alot if that helps :)

Zac Stein July 12th, 2003 11:13 AM

Keith, that is ok, you are now an honourary australian for liking the movie "i'm gonna git you sucka" heh hee.

I just read that post (1st one).. and it was like my 2nd post ever, wow how time flies and how much you learn.

Woody, collingwood hey? that wouldn't be open channel? i have done some courses there, you meet some very nice people. I am happy to jump down to brunswick st sometime, have a chat over an Atomica Coffee, just send me an email.

My wife's from Melbourne, and we were over there a couple of years ago. Her parents live on the edge of Sherbrook Forest and I was just wandering down one of the trails in the late afternoon with my Sony cam when I caught about 5mins of footage of lyrebirds. Bloody tape ran out on me! Damn!

One of these days I hope to get it up on my site.

J.J Woodroffe July 14th, 2003 10:55 AM


yeh collingwood.. such a beautiful place.. ahahaha

i'm forever getting in "situations" in that place, especially at the supermarket on smith street - gotta love finding the dead junkies there also =P

it's not really as bad as it used to be now, well i dont think it is.. my school has security everywhere so it's alright - still been a number of occasions though when people have walked in and walked out with expensive cameras, we found someone in the studio a couple of weeks ago trying to take a cam haha. had a few people overdose in the lifts too, but i've never seen any of them

i dont go to open channel, i go to NMIT just off smith street.. same course as open channel but a lot cheaper and probably better equipment.. it's a pretty good place to study video production.

i'll drop you a email sometime soon, we've just started second semester productions so i'm a bit busy atm but coffee sounds good =)
