Special Guest -
Festival Director Michael Agzarian from Wagga Wagga’s Reel is Real Film Festival.

Michael Teachers Graphic Design at Wagga’s Charles Sturt University, he impressed us with his Widescreen Laptop Apple Computer, talking to us about filmmaking on Mac and showing us examples of the 2003 Reel is Real Film Festival. The Theme for 2003 was De Ja Vu, we watched four short films on his laptop. I don’t have a copy so I’m only going by memory. First two were narrative; one was about a man who visited his mate’s house to give him $200, he was not home, but his girlfriend was, so he ask her would she show her breasts for $200. The other was an animation and the last and best film we thought, was a young woman dancing with three of herself, a very cleaver triple exposure film. Michael then finished of by handing out entry forms to the 2004 Real is Real Film Festival.
