Next to making books I work with Film & TV production and this weekend I was invited to film PECHA KUCHA at “Feast your eyes” Gallery in Fremantle. Pecha Kucha meaning “Chit chat” is a fabulous Japanese event that has spread around the world. It is an evening where anyone can present anything – but for a limited time! You get 20 slides with 20 seconds to talk to each slide. The presenters (and much of the audience) are usually from the design, architecture, photography & creative fields, but anyone can present – from grandma about her latest baking experience, to the great academic or adventurous globetrotter.You can compare it to a short film festival – you see a bunch of cool real stuff, then you have a break and chat to a bunch of cool real people, then you sit down and see a bunch of more cool real stuff.

Tara & Jess are the 2 gorgeous girls hosting the events here in Perth. They find different edgy locations for each event, this one was held in an urban grafitti-ed Gallery laneway in true Freo style. Over 150 people turned up to an event that only grows bigger and bigger. I already can’t wait for the next event. And I am sure that one day we’ll see a very first “Swept away by WANDERLUST” presentation, with a kick ass globe-trotter sharing her exciting travel moments with snapshots from  her own “Swept away by WANDERLUST” journal on the screen!
