Saw my first Koala yesterday! In a tree in the backyard, just hanging out, very wet and bedraggled, but super fuzzy and cute and very close. He was not as excited to see me as I was to see him.
Still no kangaroos. The locals laugh at me for being so excited to see the native fauna - literally running in circles I was so excited about the koala. But then I laughed out loud - a lot - when Jim told me how awesome it was to see a squirrel when he went to America.
I'm in the countryside, about 45 minutes from the nearest town, about 2 hours from Melbourne. We came up to shoot some videos in the woods. Jim Batt wears a special director's hat.
One of the videos will have these paper flowers, so I've been churning them out on a little assembly line.
Today we shot two videos - one for me, one for another project Jim works on: www.ghostlightproject.com
Tomorrow we will shoot another two videos for me. We have plans to shoot at least three more videos while I'm here, it's a very ambitious schedule, but I'm very interested in the visual aspect of my album as well.
Here are some costume scouting photos - from Rose Chong's in Melbourne, Australia:
