Our themes are always accidental. Two of our guests this week come from a commerce background and have skills in various filmmaking roles but have ended up being labelled as producers.
Producing and composing may seem like wildly different skill sets but Aaron Nash does both. He was nominated for Best Composition in this year’s South Australian Screen Awards for his work on The Horror Film and is also producing one of the MRC’s “Got Genre” funded films, Isis. Aaron joined us in the studio today to have a chat about his career and his dream project (because we like putting people on the spot).

Our Arts compadre Cath Kenneally interviewed Mark Lewis, writer/director of Cane Toads: The Conqest, which is a follow up to his 1988 doco Cane Toads: An Unnatural Story. He also has the honour of making Australia’s first 3D movie. “Cane Toads: The Conquest in 3D” will probably be my favourite movie title of the year.
