That’s right folks. We have just made the new official BRUCE! film clip for their single SOMEDAY. Filmed by Nina and Caz at the awesome RAD! (formerly Yours and Owls) in Wollongong and edited by Caz at Studio 19.
This was filmed late on a friday night during a BRUCE! rock show. The punters came and “auditioned” for the new clip. Needless to say that we laughed a lot during the making of this clip.
Big thanks to Luke, Elwyn, Mick and Mick from BRUCE! To the staff at RAD and to all the guys and girls who performed for the cameras.

If you haven’t yet been to any of our Tuesday Night Drawing Sessions in our homely little creative loungeroom then here is a sneak peek into what you have missed.
Our drawing sessions were developed to showcase the many talented performers of the Illawarra and it’s surrounds while creating a cultural event for artists of all levels. These sessions are put on in a supportive, friendly space where creative people can meet one another, draw and enjoy a few nibbles and an entertaining performance.
Here are a few of the recent performers who have graced us with their talents at Studio 19 Gallery and Creative Loungeroom.

FILM CLIPS BY STUDIO 19
We’ve been busy down here at Studio 19 – Exposure Arts and Media in Wollongong filming and editing some film clips for local and Sydney bands.
HEAPSGOODS – PILATES CLASS
Firstly, punk-rockers The Heapsgoods commissioned us to film and edit their new clip for their song Pilates Class. They requested a fast-paced, old super 8 style clip that would suit the tone of their 1 minute, 24 second rock extravaganza. We think we successfully achieved what the clients wanted! It was directed by Ronny from the Heapsgoods.
Here it is:

Wollongong Women’s Information Service graphic design rebrand by Carolyn Nowaczyk.
WOLLONGONG WOMEN’S INFORMATION SERVICE
One of my recent projects has been the rebrand of the Wollongong Women’s Information Service. Once we had the new branding in place I created their new website to match. We wanted to steer away from the muted tones of the previous logo and bring it to life with some boldness and colour that reflected more of their services.
Used as a link to the history of the Women’s Centre

Recently I have had the opportunity to photograph some amazing local talented performers and circus folk. It’s been nice to have the time to play and experiment a little also. I went down to Kiama last week to shoot Tamara Campbell and Dave Evans in their lovely home. Gosh it was a fun...
The next exhibition to fill the walls of Studio 19 gallery is “Phoetus” – three female, young and contemporary artists – Libby Batger, Amy English and Tegan Russell.
There will be an artists talk on Saturday 27th October 4pm and some work-shopping during the exhibition.
Life cycles, circles
Birth and rebirth
Of life, of art.
Contemporary art is a foetus
As are we
Constantly developing with limitless potential
there is no longer a line that defines what art is
or what artists ‘should create’
we are free to follow our passion
Art is a process, A method
It’s a result and a jouney
