Happenings – all of the shows

It’s been a busy few months here in the studio. Finishing off the 52nd episode of Doodles on ABC3, Sketchy Show’s first season for Cartoon Network and The Family Law – which should broadcast next year on SBS. Oh, and Snake Sheila (Snake Boss in Australia) is on Discovery’s Animal Planet in the UK and Aus right now. All top stuff! On top of this, Maximum Choppage is nominated for Best Television Theme at the Screen Music Awards which is super cool!

It’s been a great few months working on some top notch shows. I’m looking forward to sharing them all.

Another sleepless Joff

The Joff Bush is about to dive into writing for ABC’s new show: ‘Maximum Choppage’. It’s a show that can absorb a lot of music and so far, it’s looking amazing. On top of this, Joff Bush will be in Melbourne late April/early May to work on more great things. The theatre show, ‘Wael Zuaiter: Unknown’ can be viewed by purchasing tickets here : www.theatreworks.org.au/whatson/event/?id=201.
Look out for them both! There’s also a bunch of new commercial work up on the Rumble Studios site. All this means Joff Bush doesn’t sleep until July.
