Show 2.25, “Life After Shooting”

Ryan Kwanten and Sarah Snook in “Not Suitable for Children”

Sarah Snook left Adelaide after graduating high school to begin her acting career at NIDA in Sydney. At the start of the year she won the AACTA award for Best Lead Actress in a Television Drama for ABC1’s Sisters of War and now she’s sharing the screen with True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten in the upcoming Not Suitable For Children. The premise of the movie (20-something playboy finds out he has testicular cancer and only a few weeks of fertility left, and decides he wants a baby) could have easily been a gross out comedy, high on laughs and low on sentimentality, but it’s such a touching movie. I spoke to Sarah about her role as Stevie, Jonah’s best friend, and how she approached the character.

And if you interested in the movie check out the official tumblr page run by the filmmakers themselves which has lots of great behind the scenes stuff – like some of the titles in the mix was “The Final Fertile Month of Jonah” and “Motherload”.

Beatrix Coles from Circuit Breaker

So you’ve made your short film. What now? What can you do to keep it alive past the premiere screening? Beatrix Coles, one half of Circuit Breaker, is here to help. Having worked at a number of film festivals across the world, she knows what festivals look for in a short (tip: make sure the dvd works) and some of the classic mistakes filmmakers make in the marketing/distribution stage of their films.

Beatrix joined us on the line from Melbourne to talk us through the importance of life after shooting. Films aren’t made for shelves!

Last Sunday, Chrissy and I were invited to host a Q&A with Rolf de Heer and Gary Waddell after a screening of Rolf’s upcoming movie “The King is Dead”. We played a snippet on the show today but next week we’ll play selections from the talk and upload the entire Q&A to the blog. A huge thanks to the Palace Eastend cinemas who invited us and allowed us to record. Check out the trailer below.
