The Art Life on DVD
In 2007 the Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC1 - broadcast the first series of The Art Life. Written and presented by Andrew Frost and directed by veteran doco-maker Brendan Fletcher the series was both a critical success and a popular hit with Australian TV audiences. Nominated by The Sydney Morning Herald as one of the best arts documentaries of the year, the series is now widely seen in Australia's high schools and universities. Happily, the series is available for purchase online from Barefoot Communications.
Series 2, directed by Simon von Wolkenstein and first screened on ABC1 in March 2009, is not yet available on DVD - but you can see some promotional snippets on The Art Life's YouTube Channel
