Help Get Mitch out of Canada

He's made the news all over the frakking place, and all he's doing is applying for a temporary full-time position.

My friend and partner in Synn Studios, Mitch Moffit, wants an all expenses paid trip to Australia where he'll work at a six-figure job to help maintain the Great Barrier Reef. The contest is sponsored by Tourism Queensland in Australia, who launched this global search for the right candidate resulting in 34,000-plus applications.

Now the vote is one for the Top 50, and Mitch is one of 7 Canadians - 3 from Ontario - to make the final cut. At last check he had 7,402 votes and was in second place following a contestant from Russia. But Mitch's video, as I'm sure you've witnessed, has gotten accolades for taking a musical approach.

Along with being Synn Studios' F/X guy, Mitch is a "well-known local theatre personality" as phrased by the Guelph Mercury. He was last seen on stage last fall in the River Run's production of Beauty and the Beast as Lumiere.
