LUXVILLE - Get above yourself
Once upon a time, a long time ago, Luxville was bold. So bold the Luxville School of the Arts was a world first. So bold they welcomed new people and new ideas with open arms. So bold they focused only on being the best versions of themselves they could be. Luxvillians.
But that was a long time ago.
In Luxville today, Miss Nellie, Luxville's theatre maven, is tired of performing to empty seats. The artists are tired of being called arty & crafty. The city has stopped exploring, and worse, stopped embracing the new. Max Frank, Mayor of Luxville, rules with horse whip. So Luxville is tarnished, tired and fraying at the edges.
Luxville is a transmedia* tale told through film, photography and word. A small city in Victoria Australia (100 years from the capital) is the location, and the artists who live there, my muses. I grew up on super 8 cine film, and slide-nights, screened in the lounge room by my parents after their 1970s dinner parties. I love how story, society, art, heritage and people interact to create great stories and meaning.
*transmedia = one story in many places. The story is narrative and will be revealed over time at various events and happenings.

I’ll presume you are curious, adventurous, and like to be challenged. Please take some time to explore, examine, embrace, or discard as is your pleasure.
I hope you love Luxville as much as I do.
