the mood was energetic and the views conflicting we ran a small pa desk a projector setup to enable all to be heard.Next up was Trader Faulkner who at 85 was one of the most engaging people I have met for many years, he is a local lad from Queenscliff who left Sydney to become a great supporting actor through the 40’s to the 60’s in London with some amazing stories of Laurence Olivier, Anthony Quinn, James Coburn and many more.
My only comment to him was ” a life well lived” after listening to his life story.
Manly 2015 the big debate
Manly was out in force discussing its future with over 500 people gathered in Manly Villages school hall. Mike Baird and Candy Bingham were key speakers at this emotional discussion of the future of Manly, views from the Council and some visionary speakers were at odds in this vibrant discussion.
We ran a 6 speaker rig with wireless mic’s and recorded the whole event.
