2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,400 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Playing with Final cut pro x

Just a quick project to practice some video editing.

Have a look and tell me what you think. Any constructive feedback is more than welcome! If it would happen that the link is broken, it could be because the video had to be removed.

Artistic Residency in Whyalla, Arte Commedia aka Alessandro Gavello goes Regional on a Cargo Project.

When?June 2011.

Where? Memorial Oval Primary School in Whyalla.

What? 1 week of Commedia dell’Arte and Circus with final performance at the end of the week.

How? Through Carclew Youth Arts

It has been a fantastic experience, the whole community has been very supportive. The kids had a chance as well to put together their own masks. Here are an example:

Various Characters masks

On the top left we can see the “Capitano masks”, vertically in the centre we got some “Pantalone masks” and in the bottom left and on the right half of the image we got the “Servants masks” that come with different designs, such as:

Female Servant (Zagna)

Notice the eyebrows to identify it as a female servant, or even different models like…

Male Servant (Zanni)


Female Servant (Zagna)

Male servant (Zanni)

Let’s see a little bit closer a Capitano Mask (in the final version that you can see in the first image you may notice that a feather has been added on their foreheads, just to make them more “Capitano” like)


… & a Pantalone mask


If you are interested in having a similar experience you can either contact me or Carclew and let them know you are looking for having Alessandro Gavello coming to your school!

Special thank you for who developed the masks design we used in Whyalla:

visual artists James Parker and John Whitney (even if he doesn’t have a website, you can find some info about him here).
