Burn Out Love (Music Composition and Production)

A short film by Joachim Glaser (JG Films)

A young artist tries to adapt the scandalous play Reigen (Roundabout) as a film. The project increasingly becomes a self-experiment. The opportunities and freedom in love and art turn into a curse - everything seems possible and nothing is permanent.

In 1879 Arthur Schnitzler used imagery of love and stereotypes from the romantic novels to show his contemporaries the artificiality and rules of lovemaking.

This film transmits this method into allegories and metaphors of fine arts and shows, in a time travel from the Vienna Moderne to today, that love repeat motifs but its problem remains similar. There used to be laws and rules - today there are only possibilities.

Runtime: 24 minutes

The Gift

13 September - 6 October 2012, Maidement Theatre, Auckland.

Review on Theatreview by Lexie Matheson, 20 September 2012:

...Colin McColl's production of The Gift has class written all over it. From glittering cast to swanky set (Rachael Walker), from the cool Pacific jazz of Adrian Hollay to the fabulous audio-visuals of Simon Barker, from the subtlest of lighting by Phillip Dexter to the divine costumes of Sara Taylor there's barely a thing out of place. McColl's direction is masterful to the degree that this psychologically labyrinthine script is made as clear as day from beginning to end... www.theatreview.org.nz
