Show 1.35, “Catching A Break”

Ben Oxenbould and Peter Phelps in "Caught Inside"

Caught Inside is the first feature film from writer/director Adam Blaiklock and premiered in Adelaide last night. Set in Bali and in the seas of Indonesia, it tells the story of a group of mates on a ‘surfari’ – surfing, drinking and partying. But, like all good psychological thrillers, things don’t turn out like planned.

Ben Oxenbould, probably best known for his comedic roles on the small screen in “Hey Dad” and “Comedy Inc”, pulls an Eric Bana on us and delivers a chilling performance as the indimitating “Bull”, ex pro-surfer and bully.

We speak with Adam and Ben about the movie – which was made with a main crew of 16 people! Catch the second half of the interview next week.

Show 1.32, “Bollywood & Beginners”

Anupam Sharma

A new reality TV show hopes to unearth a star in Australia who can dance and act in a Bollywood movie. But what could a star found in a foreign country contribute towards Indian cinema?

Anupam Sharma heads the judging team of Australia’s new talent search for the country’s biggest Bollywood Star on SBS TV. But unlike the X-Factor or Idol reality TV competitions, it doesn’t matter if the Bollywood star can’t sing.

Radio Adelaide’s breakfast presenter Tim Brunero speaks to Anupam about the upcoming auditions.

Daniel Nettheim is the director of The Hunter, premiering next week, about a mercenary, played by American Willem Dafoe, sent to the Tasmanian wilderness by a mysterious biotech company to hunt for the mythical Tasmanian Tiger.

It’s based on a novel by Julia Leigh, who has become a filmmaker in her own right earlier in the year with her directorial debut Sleeping Beauty.

Beck spoke to Daniel about his relationship with Tasmania, the local politics, and his brother’s tiger hunts on set. But first, how did his love affair with film begin?

In the second part of the interview, Beck asked about Willem Dafoe’s involvement, working with children and if Julia Leigh had any influence over the film.
