I have just been working on a short film for my best Buddy Stig Wemyss of Mezzanine Productions. Stig is making a film for Tropfest 2014 and asked me to do a cameo for him.
Brilliant day filming some madness with a brilliant cast and crew including a talented goat.
So I was inspired to head down to St Kilda and make my own short film promoting the advantages of subscribing to alanfletcher.net.
My little film is an homage to Bob Dylan’s famous clip for his song Subterranean Homesick Blues.
What I loved was that a random passerby unwittingly appearing in the film with me so I had a cast – just like Bob.

Speaking of the wonderful Pacific Belles, they have been selected to be part of Team Australia in The World Championships of Performing Arts in LA in July!!! However they need to raise $15000 to fund the cost of the trip. You can help the gals get to LA through Pozible.
The recent revamp of alanfletcher.net had one key goal in mind.
To improve and personalise my communication with friends, followers and supporters.
So far everything is running to plan beautifully.
Since updating alanfletcher.net and inviting people to subscribe to my website I have had over 150 people sign on. All these new subscribers received my first music blog featuring UK muso Denny Lloyd and including a free download of his song “Shadow.
12 subscribers have also received emailed birthday messages from me and I have mailed as autographed card as promised.
All my subscribers will shortly begin to receive my exclusive blog about life on and around Ramsay Street.
And, of course, all my subscribers get a hefty 20% of all non-digital product in the af.net store.

Welcome to the re-launched AF.net website. New look, new vibe and … well, it’s just all-round new!
So, to catch you up on what’s been happening around here:
2014 began with a bang, with New Years Eve seeing Alan treading the boards at the Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks, UK, playing another baddie: the “Sheriff of Nottingham” in the box-office record-breaking Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood, starring alongside Andy Abraham from the X Factor, and 90’s pop sensation Lolly, aka Anna Kumble.
November/December last year was a busy time for Alan, as also leading into Panto season, Alan released the catchy and popular Christmas single “If You Want A Happy Christmas” with the Pacific Belles, which is still available via iTunes (if you haven’t got it already!)
After a very successful season, Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood finished on January 5, 2014 in the UK, and not long after Alan returned to Australian shores to continue his work on the much-loved Australian series Neighbours.
Which brings us to the milestone mentioned in this post’s title. No, it’s not that this website has been operating for 12 years now (yep, it really has been that long!) – but good guess. “What is it then?!” we hear you say!
Drumroll, please … The milestone mentioned is that 2014 marks Alan’s 20th year of playing “Dr Karl Kennedy”!! (And Jackie Woodburne’s 20th year of playing “Susan Kennedy” as well!)
So, with the Kennedy’s anniversary this year and Neighbours’ 30th Anniversary next year … buckle up folks, it’s going to be one ‘ell of a ride!
Signing off for now, until next we speak …
