It has been so much fun working on the TV QLD History Myseries, series pilot 'Mutiny on the Gayundah' with producers Richard Lanchaster and Ben McShea, and the fabulous cast and crew.

This McShea/Lancaster Production is an edutainment tv pilot that delves into the history of the ship, the Gayunday. It have been working with a wonderful cast of experiences actors and crew that have been so much fun to work with. It has been great that Richard as Director allowed the actors to sometime sway a little off script, adding to the dynamic experience ofdoing the whole production. Ben has been a photoghapher for over 20 years, and he framed the shots beautifully. Dressing the actors in period costume was an added bonus. Anita Deeks from Have a Fun TIme supplied all of the amazing costumes. I think she even amazed herself with how well she was able to provide the outfits requested.

I have tried to stay behind the scenes, but we had a very small group of talented actors and sometimes it was necessary for me to 'volunteer'. I have played the captain's wife. I hope I don't embarass myself too much.
