We’ve moved.

Like an hermit crab with a sweet tooth, we've outgrown our current digs.  So it's with a heavy heart that we say 'Au Wiedersen' to Woolloomooloo and, instead, say 'Howdy-Doody' to The Rocks. Our new office has a great view of Circular Quay and, if you squint, The Opera House too  - so next time you're in the 'hood' - pop in and say hi....

Eventually he came across a casting call for a soft core pornography film; out of desperation he attended the casting call. For two days of filming the actor received $200. According to Stallone “it was either do that movie or rob someone, because I was at the end, the very end of my rope”. After getting back on his feet he was eventually able to attend college. However, deciding this path was not for him, he left before graduation and moved to New York to pursue an acting career. He tried out for nearly each and every casting call he could, and contacted as many casting agents as he could find, stripping porn games with no victory.
