So I’m hosting this Comedy festival this weekend in Queensland. Its at a place called Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort. This scares me for two reasons. One is I don’t usually do stand up comedy and the other is dolphins really freak me out. SERIOUSLY. They are just weird, smelly, slimy things that make funny noises. How could they build a resort around WILD ones?!? That squeaky, eek, eek they do and the fact that they breathe out of their heads. Think about it, this thing breathes out of its freakin head. Which makes me wonder. If Im feeding it a fish and i stick my fingers in its blow hole does it choke? Not that I would they freak me out. But it makes me wonder. I digress, this Friday and Saturday night. Get on a boat and go to Tangalooma for some laughs.

HOLLYWOOD PODCAST with comedy legend Rob Brown

So I’m over here in LA for the premiere of my new film Shooting Goldman and staying with a very funny buggar by the name of Rob Brown.
Of course I had to get his take on a few things happening in the USA like the presidential elections, Ashley Maddison and dodgy 80s TV hosts.

Australians In Film have given us the thumbs up and have secured rights to the USA premiere.
Some of Los Angeles biggest stars will be in attendance (from the movie Shooting Goldman) a very special appearance from one of the USA’s greatest reality TV hosts/actor (from the movie Shooting Goldman) and a radio megastar (mikes dad).
Ok, I’ll be there with some friends and my dear old dad Grant Goldman is coming too.
He plays a major part in the movie.
So check back here for the after party pics and reviews.
Any media enquiries contact
If you want to see the movie in all its glory click the link at the top of the page and download it for a limited time.

Shooting Goldman Premiere

Shooting Goldman opening to critical acclaim from fans at film festivals across the globe. After years of filming, editing, soundtrack and adr recordings the first sneak screening was held last week on the Gold Coast. Next week our film opens at New Yorks Audience Now film festival. Well done to everyone who worked on our movie. We are all really proud of what we achieved.
One of the best films I’ve seen in years. The main character really drew me in and made me feel like I was him. Ok, it was me.
goldmanPremiere 5goldmanPremiere 68 An amazing night at the Launch Of The Sanctuary Cove Film festival for the Sneak screening of Shooting Goldman. We had celebrities, champagne, food, popcorn and a Shooting Goldman shooting gallery where you could shoot me wherever you like. Well, a cardboard cutout of me anyway.

Andrea Dozzi finally got her wish.

Hey if you didn’t like the movie what better way to let out your frustrations.

Shooting Goldman

SHOOTING GOLDMAN from MikeGoldman on Vimeo.

Its the movie we’ve been working on for the last few years. Its finally here! We have entered Shooting Goldman into film festivals around the globe and will be holding a sneak screening for friends and family this week.
Very exciting!
So whats it about?!?
Well we don’t want to give too much away but we can tell you its not what you think.
To the naked eye it looks like a documentary on Mike, I feel so silly writing my name in the third person, ok so it looks like a documentary about me but its not. You’ll get the drift about half way through I reckon. Unless your drunk from free drinks at a premiere when you’ll probably just get a massive shock at the end when theres blood everywhere. Oh no! Almost a spoiler alert there. Please go to the Shooting Goldman like page on facebook to keep updated on where the festival screenings are and when the world premiere is.
Thankyou so much to Chris Boyd, Damian Del Borello, Cam Knight, Cutting Edge, Glass Media, Hugh Haling, Teapot Films, Rod Morris at Interactive Originals and IO Films. So many more people to thank so we will save that for the premiere. Hopefully see you there. Shooting Goldman Poster
