Sherpa – Movie Screenings around Australia – Tickets Giveaway

Sherpa is an awe inspiring, emotional and epic story of one  of the biggest tragedies to ever occur on Mount Everest. See this film to learn more about what life is really like for those who work and live on the World’s largest mountain. 

Sherpa

A fight on Everest? It seemed incredible. But in 2013 news channels around the world reported an ugly brawl at 21,000ft as European climbers fled a mob of angry Sherpas.

In 1953, New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay had reached the summit in a spirit of co-operation and brave optimism. Now climbers and Sherpas were trading insults – even blows. What had happened to the happy, smiling Sherpas and their dedication in getting foreigners to the top of the mountain they hold so sacred?

Determined to explore what was going on, the filmmakers set out to make a film of the 2014 Everest climbing season, from the Sherpas’ point of view. Instead, they captured a tragedy that would change Everest forever.

At 6.45am on 18th April, 2014, a 14 million ton block of ice crashed down onto the climbing route through the Khumbu Icefall, killing 16 Sherpas. It was the worst tragedy in the history of Everest.

The disaster provoked a drastic reappraisal about the role of the Sherpas in the Everest industry. SHERPA, tells the story of how, in the face of fierce opposition, the Sherpas united in grief and anger to reclaim the mountain they call Chomolungma.

Nominated by the British Academy of Film & Television for the Best Documentary Award, the film been described by industry bible Variety as Œmagnificent¹. It is a must-see documentary capturing the aftermath of one of the biggest tragedies on Mount Everest.

world vision

I have taken on this position as of May 25th 2015 and it is a wonderful opportunity. I’m working with incredible people in the media team to share the incredible work of World Vision Australia.

During this time, I will still be running my business Lovelly Communications in a low key manner. Please do feel free to contact me about your marketing, PR and social media needs for contracts beginning in the near future or further down the track.

I will continue to be a member of the World Vision Blog Ambassador team and to share my experiences in the field when visiting with World Vision in various countries. I will also be continuing my sponsorship of Kamala in Nepal through the child sponsorship program at World Vision Australia. I have been sponsoring children through World Vision for 10 years and this is a program I plan to support both personally and professionally for a long time to come.

Thank you to everyone for their support in taking on this role. It’s an incredible opportunity to work for a cause and an organization I am truly passionate about.

Can’t wait to see Kelly Fastuca at MICF in “I need an Adult”

This weekend I’ll be heading down to Melbourne for the International Comedy Festival, MICF2015. I’m catching the last weekend of the festival and i’ve locked in a few amazing shows to see including the fabulous Kelly Fastuca!

I first met Kelly Fastuca in New York City at a stand-up night. She rocked the mic, and I even got up and did a few minutes myself. It was a blast and I loved Kelly’s style. It’s very exciting therefore to see her doing an awesome new show at MICF this year in Melbourne.

A3melbourne

Here’s a bit more about the show:

Five years ago, Kelly was a rising star in the Melbourne Comedy scene when she won the American Green Card Lottery, packed up everything and moved to New York City.

Not knowing a soul and with a small amount of cash, she has somehow survived two hurricanes, a polar vortex, a blizzard, and some choice moments of strangers trying to wee on her. Starting a new life in a tough city, she needed an adult to get her out of bad situations. Or someone to just make her a sandwich.

Always relatable, always funny, ‘I Need an Adult’ is her Australian return to the festival circuit.

Known around the US for her work on podcast’s and radio, she is a regular on Robert Kelly’s cult following ‘You Know What Dude’ Podcast, and has also been a guest ‘Opie and Anthony.’ Her podcast ‘Get your hand off it’ is available for free on itunes.

“Hilariously twisted, brutally funny” Village Voice, NYC 2014

Venue: The Downstairs Lounge @ The Grand Mercure Hotel, 195 Swanson St

Dates: Thurs 26 March – Sun 19 April

There is more to Kelly than just the stand-up, make sure to check out her podcast, “Get your hand off it.” Known around the US for her work on podcast’s and radio, she is a regular on Robert Kelly’s cult following ‘You Know What Dude’ Podcast, and has also been a guest ‘Opie and Anthony.’ Her podcast ‘Get your hand off it’ is available for free on itunes.

Emma Lovell travelling to Uganda as an official World Vision Australia Blog Ambassador

Here is the article from World Vision about the amazing adventure to come.
http://blog.worldvision.com.au/world-vision-australia-blog-ambassador-trip-2014/

I’ve been sponsoring children with World Vision  for 10 years. It’s been an incredible experience and I got to also visit my sponsor child Lazaro in Tanzania. It was a day that changed my life. I’ve also been to Cambodia as a Tour Leader for Inspired Adventures and an amazing team of people who fundraised more than $80,000 for World Vision Australia. We had the opportunity then to visit a project and see the work of World Vision in Cambodia and what they are doing with communities there.

In 2015, I’m planning to trek to Everest Base Camp with World Vision and have already raised more than $4000. All information is here, https://everest2015.everydayhero.com/au/emma-takes-on-the-best-trek-everest. Stay tuned for more posts and you can see posts about this adventure already on The Traveller Em website. We are going with Inspired Adventures and you can track us at #EverestBaseCampTrek2015

This will be such an incredible experience to see another project of World Vision Australia and learn about the needs of the communities in Uganda. I can’t wait to share this information via my Social Media channels and blog writing. I truly believe through education and understanding, we can do things to make a difference.

From working on our first Comedy Shows in the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festivals to the launch of a new milk brand. We’ve worked with international musicians and on the Sydney Blues and Roots Music Festival. We’ve talked about watches, decking, travel and recruitment. It’s been a diverse and dynamic year and we’ve learnt a lot.

Kim Wempe Australian Tour

AUSTRALIAN TOUR / ALBUM RELEASE


“…one of those strong, raspy voices that’s only made better by whiskey and more emotive by a sad song. She embodies the storytelling nature of the country genre, that slow burning hurt we know to be true of the blues, and these soulful gospel melodies that recall something almost spiritual.”

Alan Cross – Canadian Radio Broadcaster and Music Journalist

 

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, a small Canadian farming town, KIM WEMPE hit her musical stride after moving to the arts/cultural hub of Nova Scotia in 2008 to complete her Jazz Degree in Voice and record her 2009 award winning debut album Where I Need To Be. Following the much-lauded debut, the sassy Blues/Folk singer/songwriter collaborated with some of Canada’s finest musicians (Joel Plaskett, Old Man Luedecke, Thom Swift & Geoff Hilhorst of Deep Dark Woods) for her 2nd (award nominated) album Painting With Tides.  After four years of touring consistently, including performances at festivals & the Vancouver Olympics, Kim is set to release her third album and hit Australia for her first bunch of shows.

Album-cover copy

Kim Wempe’s new album Coalition is roots-tinged pop/blues influenced by Americana storytelling and gospel melodies. Produced by Newfoundland soul artist Chris Kirby, the album showcases Wempe’s powerful vocals like never before. Supported by an insistent kick drum, alternative percussion, layered guitars, blues organ, and a gospel choir, Wempe’s smoky voice pulls the weight of every song like an unstoppable train.  Released in Australia on December 7 through Code One/MGM, Coalition features the infectious single Never Promised You Nothing and a heartbreaking duet with Tim Chaisson for The Only One. 

 

Catch Kim Wempe performing on the East Coast in December & January.  Dates attached.

 

COALITION is out December 7 through Code One/MGM

 

“That’s the reason why Kim Wempe is going to be huge; she’s got the heart, she’s got the soul and she’s got the kind of voice that holds those who hear it tightly. That voice is magic and no one who hears it will be able to turn away from it.”  Bill Adams – Canadian Music Reviewer / http://www.groundcontrolmag.com/detail/3/3522/

Have you ever experienced Bill Shock from a Telco?

Through another great shout out from Sourcebottle, Director Emma Lovell had the opportunity to be featured in Port Phillip Leader in an article entitled “Big Rise in Bill Shock”.

 

Have you ever experienced Bill shock? after receiving an $811 bill from telephone company Vodafone, we certainly experienced some shock! Make sure if you also have this situation make sure to contact the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman – TIO.

Working at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2013

The Indian Film Festival 2013 has just 2 days to go! Get along if you can. It’s a special year for the festival, celebrating 100 years of the Indian Film Industry. Hosted at Hoyts Melbourne.

http://www.iffm.com.au

This post was meant to come 3 weeks ago when the festival launched on May 3rd. I was lucky enough to be there on opening night and see some of Bollywood’s biggest names.

See more about the night on the official website here: http://www.iffm.com.au/opening.html

The A List Bollywood stars but you can’t see them well.

I was blessed to be working at this event as most people who follow this blog now know… I LOVE INDIA!! It was funny because as I spoke to the guests about my love of India, they asked why I was not wearing my Sari… I suggested it might not go with the polo t-shirt I had to wear for work on the evening.

To my great surprise and delight, the Festival ambassador was the beautiful and Talented Vidya Balan. I saw her film Kahaani on my last visit to India and loved her in it. I’ve been dying to see her movie The Dirty Picture for which she won a number of awards, she is a beautiful and talented woman. She was great on the night- speaking very naturally and making jokes with the audience. There was also a great Q &A on the night with some of the big names of Bollywood- very exciting – Pamela Chopra, Simi Garewal, Prabhudeva, Girish Kumar, Farah Khan and Kabir Khan.

They played India’s first ever feature film, Raja Harishchandra. A very short film with all males in the roles, so males dressed up as queens and concubines. It was a great laugh and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s so impressive to see that this country has come so far in Film and made such a mark on the world.

I’ll be working again at the Closing and can’t wait to see what the night holds! Hoping to see another film. My list of Bollywood Films is growing by the minute!

I also worked at the Telstra Bollywood Dance Competition which was a SUPER fun night in Federation square, Melbourne.
