Yet another side of the moon - request for help

The Flaming Doghouse would like to thank everyone who came to see "The Dog Side of the Moon" and would like your help to further the life of the show.

Firstly, we are putting together a "Bootleg" DVD of the show - if you have any photos or video footage of the band and/or audience, we'd love to include them in the package.  All clips used will be acknowledged in the credits and you'll get your own copy of the finished work for free!

Secondly, we have an opportunity to take the show overseas! (well, to the mainland) More details to follow as plans are confirmed, but it does mean that we will want to enhance the video presentation to include more local content. If you are itching to produce (or have already got) a vision-only short film that would illustrate, in an island way, one of the following themes:
  • On The Run (Fear of Flying and/or general stress caused by travel.)
  • Money ('nuff said)
  • Brain Damage (Insanity) - btw, I'd love to get some footage of our local, state or federal pollies standing on a lawn or other grassy areas
Please contact David Richards on 9999 0562 for more information.
