I was introduced to Michael Myers, as I was introduced to many things that my mum did’t approve off, by my cousin on VHS. I sat in his bedroom with several other people shitting my pants in suspense and from that film on I was hooked. I went back and discovered the film that defined the “slasher flick” genre, the original Halloween one and two. (Pointless film-nerd info; Lance Guest, who plays Alex Rogan, where I got my name form, in The Last Starfighter, plays Jimmy in Halloween 2.)
Just skip 3.
I guess 5 is watchable.
I actually liked 6 and at the time had a crush on Paul Rudd from seeing him in The Size of Watermelons.
I am a MASSIVE Scream one and two fan and when I heard Kevin Williamson was writing Halloween H2O and picking the story up from where two left off I pre-cam! And the film did not let me down – it is KIKASS! (And they should have stopped the franchise there.)
Now that Halloween is almost here I thought I’d re-visit my love for Michael and the Michael Myers inspired shoot I did in 2014 when “Australia’s naughty son” returned home…
In 2015 I was commissioned by the Victroian AIDS Council for their Down and Dirty campaign to create 6 images to be shown at the Company of Men Exhibition 2016. I was given 6 themes based within the world of sexually active gay men, to explore. One was “PrEP.” The final image as shown in previous posts is 1 of 3 images that will soon be available at my SHOP page for purchase. It has a man (SKIPPY BAXTER) engaging with several other men whose faces are pixelated in a group sex scenario. The idea was to show the sexual indifference that PrEP has inspired within the gay community.
I think PrEP is an amazing breakthrough in the medical world and I use it and totally support its use. It can’t be blamed for how people chose to use or abuse it.
Now at my GALLERY page is a series of black and white photos that were also taken during that photoshoot but not chosen for the final image where I used masks instead of pixelating the faces of the models. The photos you see here are a sneak peek from that shoot.
