Le Festival Adore

Le Festival Adore from Nicholas Chalmers on Vimeo.

This is the film which I made for my installation at 'I USED TO SKATE ONCE 6' Exhibiton.

The movie is cut from a reel of Super8 Film I shot in outback Australia. I used the best images from the reel as most of it was over exposed courtesy of my broken camera.

Basically the film is a bit of tongue and cheek for all the art-house style films out there that use antique looking footage and non-english voices. Nothing serious just an attempt of a bit of light hearted humour. I'm hoping viewers who speak French will get a laugh out of this as the subtitles and talking are completely non-related. For example the French dialogue starts a little something like this "Isn't it funny how you can say anything in French and it sounds so sexy..."

Enjoy (hopefully)


Tonight is I USED TO SKATE ONCE 6. Stoked I was asked to be in this show again. Come along tonight and have a drink and be a sponge and soak up arted-up skateboards if your in Bristown or nearby.

Ze Keg Show

I was lucky enough to be asked to paint a keg for Stone and Wood's keg show that opens this Friday night in Byron at their Headquarters. The show then goes from Byron to 19karen on the Gold Coast then down to Ambush Gallery in Sydney.

All kegs are for sale and full proceeds goes directly to the artists's chosen Charity. Will post photos from the openings.
