Kojo has been described as the Adelaide film mafia. Maybe because they offer services in all facets of film and media production – content creation, post production studios and even event management. CEO Loewn Steel spoke to us about Kojo’s current state of transition and how they came to be such a powerhouse in SA.

One of the subsidiaries of Kojo, Spirit Films, is soon to be bundled up under the Kojo blanket. Their current project with Study Adelaide is a series of short films enticing international students to choose Adelaide to study. Directed by Roh Smith and cinematography by Nima Nabili Rad the short films look at different aspects of Adelaide lifestyle, like AFL and the Central Markets.
Dale Roberts, Director of Content and Post Production, at Spirit Films talks to us about the project and what they do at Spirit. Dale starts off by telling us how his career in film production started which involves one day of university study.

MAPS Film School director, Peter Thurmer, came on the show a few weeks ago to discuss MAPS and while we had him we asked him for a Rant of the Week. He did not disappoint. Cinemas are dying, torrents are thriving, and Australian audiences don’t like Australian films. (And for your linking pleasure, Peter discusses Gabriel (2009).)
