Louise Alston

Jucy tells the story of a womance of plutonic proportions, as the tagline goes. That’s right, ladies, if guys can have a bromance, we can have a womance.

Director Louise Alton spoke to Chrissy about how the story of Jackie and Lucy (=Jucy) came about.

We host some amazing international film festivals in Adelaide – this week it’s the Mexican Film Festival at the Mercury Cinema.

Show 1.37, “Run For Your Un-Life”

Zombie webseries "Livin' with Steve" (

Zombies are so hot right now. Or they will be. There’s even a zombie romance being made as we speak, starring Adelaide’s own Teresa Palmer.

On the slightly less disturbing side of the spectrum, we have Livin’ With Steve, an animated web series, about the enduring of friendship of man and man’s best friend, who happens to be a zombie.

Project producer Levi George and animator Jarrod Prince came into the studio to talk about their undead creation.

10 Metres - Run for your Life

What would you do if you were drugged and when you woke up found yourself strapped with explosives? Writer and director Rory Noke imagined just that and 10 Metres was born. Shot guerilla style over two weeks in Melbourne, Rory did what he could to get the film made – including having blank decoy tapes on standby if the authorities asked him to hand over his footage.

10 Metres was recently announced as one of four finalist for the DigiSpaa competition which supports low-budge digital feature films.

Rory Noke came in to the studio and producer Michael Clarkin joined us on the phone

Jonathan Teplitzky, writer/director of Burning Man chatted with us last week about his film. At the end of the interview I asked him his views on the Australian film industry for a segment we call “Rant of the Week”. In particular, he focuses on the need find another way of judging the ‘worth’ of Australian films.

Show 1.36, “Burning, Not Waving”

Jonathan Teplitzky and Rebecca Elliott at Radio Adelaide

Burning Man is the latest feature film from director Jonathan Teplitzky. An English chef, played by Matthew Goode, tries to put his life back together after the death of his wife. It’s set on Bondi Beach and suburban Sydney but it’s a universal story about grief, love and acceptance – and humour! Jonathan came into the studios at Radio Adelaide and we spoke about his transition from directing to writing.

Adam Blaiklock and Paul S Friedmann at the Inside Film Awards 2010

Last week we heard from Caught Inside director, Adam Blaiklock, and actor, Ben Oxenbould. We continue the conversation today with Adam and Ben, and producer Paul S Friedmann and discuss how to go about privately funding a feature film.

And, how could we resist asking the guys our favourite question that we call our “Rant of the Week” – What do you think of the Australian film industry? Ben was diplomatic (he still needs work, after all), and Adam and Paul talked about how supportive the South Australian Film Corporation has been for them (I didn’t prompt them, I swear)
