I should not be allowed to make blog titles while I’m sleep deprived (i.e. all the time).
Leon Ford made a name for himself as an actor (check out his filmography) while writing and directing short films on the side. His debut feature film, Griff the Invisible, screened at the BigPond Adelaide Film Festival and opened nationally a few weeks ago. He spoke to us about the evolution of the story and the production process. You can hear about his next project in the coming weeks. Keep an ear out!

The Shorts Film Festival opens tonight at Norwood Concert Hall. The festival has come a long way since its humble beginnings eight years ago. Now an annual event, Shorts screens 60 films (National and International) over a week. Eddie White, who is on the Board of Festival Directors, spoke to me about his role and the range of films that will be screening this week. Adelaide director Kelly Carpenter (who has two films in the festival – Concealed and Pleased to Meat You: Live with Sandra Faye) and Andrew C. Morgan, director of The Skellys gave us a run down of their films. We’ll be playing more from these interviews in coming shows.
