New Palm Court Orchestra
Since its inception, BATCHEDIT has been actively involved with the classical and musical scenes of Melbourne. One such group, The New Palm Court Orchestra, has been at the forefront of that. Led by the talented Gemma Turvey, the NPCO worked with a visiting U.S. artist, Eugene Friesen, resulting in a wonderful concert. Here, a small doco with the team and some highlights from the concert.

Kathryn Beker is a young Melbourne fashion designer on the up and up. For three years, BATCHEDIT has supported her new yearly collections with video documentation. Narrative without form except for the garments and the women that wear them.
Melbourne Theatre Company
The Melbourne Theatre Company has been a giant in the Australian theatrical landscape for over 70 years. It's been a thrill to provide content for them, continuing that into 2016 for their next season. ( Interviews, Narrative)
BELL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
Bell Shakespeare Company is Australia's premiere presenter of the works of Shakespeare. Good timing and a wealth of skills allowed BATCHEDIT to jump in film for their 25th Anniversary. Privilege and an honour. (Interviews, Behind the Scenes and Editing)
City of Melbourne
Both as BATCHEDIT as well as at times in communion with BAKEWOOD Publishing, the City of Melbourne has put out the call for video documentation of projects within the city. When they called to document the first stage of the 100 Resilient Cities project, BATCHEDIT jumped at the chance. Over the period of a few shoots and a grinding edit, the following stage 1 video was produced. (Interviews, Behind the Scenes)
THIS IS EDEN
Emily Goddard, with the directorial assistance of Susie Dee, has created a thrilling piece of theatre called This is Eden. Set in the rough days of mid colonisation of Australia, this harrowing piece explores the wrongs of them, amid the wrongs of now. This has set the tone for BATCHEDIT for the years to come.
ACTOR SHORT FILM - FABIENNE PARR
Fabienne Parr first approached BATCHEDIT to compile her actors showreel back in 2008. 7 years later, the opportunity came about to create a new short film for her new showreel. All the right things at all the right time, from casting, motion, script and editing turned this into the most compelling piece to date for the atmosphere BATCHEDIT wishes to create in narrative.
The Flinders Quartet
The Flinders Quartet has continued to trust BATCHEDIT with producing content for its social media, covering their concerts at the Melbourne Recital Centre and other venues. Here, they were joined by two other extremely talented Australian musicians.
Samara Hersch is a constant creator in theatre, twisting complex themes and re-exposing old narratives.
ACTOR SHORT FILM - Brenda Addie
Brenda has been a long time associate in the world of theatre and performance. She entrusted BATCHEDIT to create a new short for her reel, and we had to put in all the bells and whistles. Supported by Christine Husband, what was meant to be a 1 minute short, became a 4 minute short film. Enjoy!
