Kate Croser is one half of independent production company Cyan Films, based at the South Australian Film Corp. They develop and produce feature films and have built up an impressive catalogue, including last year’s runaway success “Red Dog”. Another hit gracing the small screen is Danger 5, a web series she produced along side creator Dario Russo. Kate came in to talk Danger 5, and how easy was it to sell the concept of a 1960s World War II spy comedy to SBS and the benefits of premiering online before broadcasting.

We’ve spoken a bit about filmmakers using crowdfunding to get their short films off the ground but it’s not often you see it as a way to fund a feature film. Producer Katrina Fleming and director Aaron Wilson have done just that with their film Canopy, a Australia-Singapore co-production set in World War II. They joined us on the phone to tell us about the difficult shooting environment and dealing with language barriers on multi national crew.
