About This Series
Jamie Hutchings is a singer songwriter and a lead guitarist. He formed the Sydney Indie band Bluebottle Kiss back in the mid 1990’s, where he established himself as a very important participant in the music scene of that time. In my research for a Masters (of Design) at the University of Technology Sydney (under the direction of Professor Lawrence Wallen), I created a layered video portrait of Jamie last July, 2011. It is an examination of his personal creative approach to his very, critically, well received solo album Avalon Cassettes . Here are some of the stills from that portrait piece. I like Jamie for his talent, grace, and his intelligence. He really is a deep thinker with an old guitar. These images were shot quickly with a digital camera. They were beautifully processed and retouched by Shayne Pearce, under my direction. I sometimes used landscapes as wallpaper in the video. One of the landscapes is included in this portfolio. Also, Kate Barnes is an actor and a dancer who currently focuses on Salsa and Ballroom dancing. Having danced professionally for many years, she has won her share of awards, including being awarded Australian Salsa Champion in 2010. She works 6 - 7 days a week at her dancing. Throughout Kate’s career, she has had the pleasure of being guided and instructed by great talents such as Paul Green (Dancesport World Champion & Dancing with the Stars Champion). Kate is based in Marrickville(Sydney)and has been my subject for another layered video portrait in my research at the University of Technology Sydney. Here, again, are some stills from that piece done in October 2011.
