Don't forget your ground seating for Tropfest

Tropfest 6 December 2015 – Don’t miss out on the world’s largest short film festival!

Tropfest is Australia’s most prestigious short film festival and one of its most iconic cultural events. It is also the largest short film festival in the world. At home, Tropfest is recognised for its enormous contribution to the development of the Australian film industry.

Tropfest is hosted in Sydney’s Centennial Park with a live national audience of around 150,000 people.  It’s a free event to attend and at Chillazy it is one of our favourite outdoor celebrations complete with music, entertainment, public catering and bars.  It’s a must do!

Don't forget your ground seating for Tropfest

Don’t forget your ground seating for Tropfest

Program times at a glance: Tropfest pre-show entertainment and live music from 3pm, screening of the 16 Finalist Films from 7:30pm.

Also, if you’re one of those really organised types! Tropfest is BYO-friendly so you can grab your foldable ground seat, picnic blanket, hat, sunscreen and a couple of bevvies and settle in for the entertainment!

Remember it’s a big day outdoors and we recommend you take:

  • picnic rug
  • foldable ground seat for backsupport (e.g. Chillazy ;))
  • hat
  • sunscreen
  • sunglasses
  • a plastic bag for your rubbish
  • insect repellent
  • a blanket for when the sun goes down
  • a raincoat – just in case
  • a water bottle

Just as a side note, it’s great that Tropfest’s founder John Polson joined the campaign against illegal movie and music downloading.  People generally don’t seem to be aware of the devastating impact that pirating movies and music has on the entertainment industry.  A study by IPAF found that 27% of Australians download content illegally on a regular basis!

The sad part is that the people downloading the content illegally would probably be the most devastated if the industry was unable to keep producing great creative content!  Why not support the artists and pay for your content?

The Chillazy’s Dream – Be sat in by people far and wide!

The Chillazy has been taken to outdoor events across Australia and overseas… it’s traveled far and wide bringing joy to outdoor event goers globally.

Chillazin rental seat cinema

Previously we would sell the Chillazy at outdoor events but recently, we’ve been approached by big and small outdoor event organisers from local charities to large well known outdoor cinemas and concerts to have our seats available for hire at their events.  This has really opened up doors for the Chillazy… it’s dream of being sat in by people far and wide is coming true!

ANZAC Day Commemorations 2015 in Gallipoli

Hi Chillazers!

ANZAC Day is fast approaching. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC’s landing at Gallipolli so it’s a big event this year with over 10,000 Australians and New Zealanders heading over to pay their respects.

We’ve had a few people ring up and ask about whether the Chillazy seat could be taken to the commemorations at Gallipoli. Given the larger number of people attending the event this year the Turkish Government has placed stricter requirements on what will be allowed into the event. I contacted the Department of Veteran Affairs to discuss the seating options. The employee at the DVA mentioned to me that she thought the Chillazy would be a good option however, they couldn’t guarantee that the Turkish government would let them in. She provided me with an email that outlined additional information

“blankets are permitted on site as are compact sleeping bags…. Folding chairs are not permitted. Any variations such as blow up chairs, portable legless or back support chairs and the like may not be permitted by Turkish Authorities”

She also provided a link to the prohibited items list that was provided by the Turkish Government and is on their website (http://www.gallipoli2015.dva.gov.au/AnzacDay2015.htm).

Now this is a little vague about what definitely will and will not be allowed in (they say back support chairs MAY not be permitted…) but the Chillazy could be the perfect option. Worse case, when you unclip the buckles on each side, it becomes a comfy mat to sit on.  It also easily rolls up for putting into your suitcase.

We’ve decided that in support of the Aussies travelling to Gallipoli for the 2015 ANZAC commemorations we will guarantee that if you purchase a Chillazy and are unable to get it into the site we will replace it for you when you return to Australia free of charge. To be eligible for this guarantee you will need to provide proof of your trip to Gallipoli when requesting a replacement.

Cheers,

Chris & the Chillazy Crew

Chillazy’s top 5 things to take to your next outdoor concert

  1. Bring a blankie or warm jumper. During the day it might be hot, but once the sun goes down you’ll get chilly
  2. Wear earplugs when falling asleep at night at a multi-day concert.
  3. Bring a bandana / headband you can soak in cold water. It cools you down and reduces heat stress
  4. Take baby wipes to clean your hands and wipe your face. It can get sticky when eating and drinking at a concert.
  5. Have a mini first aid kit with a few band aids, Panadol and sunscreen handy

Don’t forget to celebrate your 2014 achievements this Chrissy!

A large Australian independent wealth manager  decided that Chillazy Seats would be great Christmas presents for their staff!  They are practical, fun and handy coming into the Festive season!

Not only did they give the Chillazys as Christmas presents but they invited me along to their Christmas in the Park celebration to speak about taking a risk in business, work life balance and the the importance of setting goals.

I thought it was super chillazy to have christmas celebrations with some music, picnic food and a couple of bevvies in the park so I immediately accepted the invitation.   It was exciting to be asked to present to a corporate team about things that have become so important to me since starting Chillazy.

Being Christmas I realised that it is a very important time of the year, being a time that we should all celebrate the successes of 2014 and take some time to sit back and get chillazy and allow ourselves to consider our goals for 2015.

It was such a great evening and I thank the team for involving Chillazy in the event.
