Other works
Album: "Something for Everybody" with the hit pop single "Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen" on his label, Bazmark Music.

Stage: Directed "La Boheme" opera by Giacomo Puccini on Broadway. He was nominated for a Tony award as Best Director.

TV commercial: In late 2004 he directed the world's most expensive advertisement for Chanel No 5, a four-minute short film titled "No 5: The Film" starring Nicole Kidman (who he worked with for Moulin Rouge! (2001)) and Rodrigo Santoro. The ad, about a fairy-tale romance in which Chanel is part of the story but is not what the story is about, cost £18 million and made Kidman a Guinness World Record holder for highest paid actress in a commercial (she netted $3.71 million). Varying length versions of the ad were shown on television, and - a first for Chanel - in movie theaters. Costumes were designed by Karl Lagerfeld and a score by Claude Debussy. Kidman wore £17m worth of real gems.

Music video: Appeared in the music video, "Come What May", by Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman.

(1997) He presented and produced a song that hit the charts in 1999, "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)". The lyrics were written by Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich and the vocals were performed by Lee 'Scratch' Perry.

Stage: Produced and directed a hit re-invention of the classic opera "La Boheme" for the stage in Sydney, Australia, taking place in the 1950s post-war Paris, stressing acting more than big "[Luciano Pavarotti]-style voices", to create an experience for "people who might be a little intimidated by opera". It was eventually filmed in 1993 for PBS' "Great Performances" ("Great Performances: La bohème (#22.15)" (1994)).

(1984;1986) Stage play: Strictly Ballroom - played the part of Ross Pierce, husband of Barbara Pierce (played by Catherine McClements), at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia.

(1999) Produced the song, "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" which reached #1 in the UK.
