[caption id="attachment_311" align="alignright" width="134" caption="Skevos Mavros and Kareena Arthy - MavArt"][/caption] MavArt is one person - Skevos Mavros. No that’s not a nickname or handle, it’s my real name. MavArt is me. I am MavArt. Goo goo g’joob.*
Who the heck is Skevos Mavros?I’m a writer/director and editor (and occasional cinematographer, animator, sound recordist, dialogue editor, and VFX mangler) living in Brisbane Australia. I’m currently working on a few scripts for short films and a couple of features. They are all in various states of pre- and pre-pre-production. As for my features, well, they’ll be finished "Real Soon Now". I teach part-time at the Queensland School of Film and Television. I also work on videos (corporates, training, music clips, TV commercials) as part of PixelPopMedia. I also used to be the Guide for the Film Making web site over at About.com, formerly The Mining Company, which is a great collection of special-interest web sites, but my work and writing commitments forced me to stop running it. Last tim I looked, About.com still hasn’t found someone to take over the Film Making site, so it and all the articles I wrote for it have been removed from their servers. In order to rescue the articles from internet oblivion, I put a few of them up here, in the Articles section.
Where does the name “MavArt” come from?The name MavArt is actually a combination of the first three letters of my surname (Skevos Mavros), and the first three letters of my wife’s surname (Kareena Arthy). A stunningly original idea, yes? Yes? Oh...
*What does Goo Goo G’Joob Mean?It’s a nonsense phrase from the nonsense Beatles song I Am The Walrus: Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long I am the eggman, they are the eggmen I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob
