Show 2.37, “Flight of the Humble-B … Movie”

“Charlie: Squid Whisperer”, concept by Mark Knight, inspired by the fears of Rebecca Elliott. Shopped by David Powell.


What makes a B Movie? What does the B stand for? and don’t say ‘bad’. Mark Knight, self styled “big nerd”, is the man to ask. As lead developer at Storynerds, Mark will be running a workshop on the 6th and 7th of October called B-Keeping for Beginners!!! (OR How I Sold My Script to Hollywood for Just $50 a Day!!!!!) – exclamation marks are essential. We spoke about screen writing, script development and making your very own B movie with the use of a few nouns. Mine involved a giant squid and Charlie Sheen *shudder* horrific.

Viron Papadopoulos, general manager of industry development and production at the South Australian Film Corporation, spoke about their upcoming Digital360Lab aimed at SA screenmakers who are keen to explore the changing digital landscape. Guidelines and applications forms are available from safilm.com.au and the lodging due date is Monday 15th October.

I have to apologies for the sound quality of this interview but you have to appreciate the irony of discussing how digital technologies have opened up new opportunities while it sounds like we’re talking at two different ends of a robot’s belly.

Ursula Dabrowsky spoke to us earlier in the month about her upcoming feature Inner Demon but in the final part of that interview we talked about the Australian horror scene and horror in the city of corpses, aka Adelaide.

If you tuned in live today you discovered what happens when you ask someone who had a C average in maths to do sums while also coordinating a radio show. The countdown clock mysteriously disappeared on our playout system and I had to rely on my terrible maths abilities to time out the show on my own. Streetcast had a good laugh at me. The great thing about this blog means that even if I have to cut an interview short, you can listen again right here.

To make sure these posts happen as fast as possible we will no longer be supplying the individual interviews but you can listen to the full podcast of the show below. Let me know if you’d prefer them back – it’s just something we’re trialling at the moment.

Show 2.36, “Ladies On Film”

The Babadook is a curious name for a curious tale. A single mother, a 6 year old boy, and a possibly corporeal storybook monster.

SA based producer Kristian Moliere spoke to Behind the Screens earlier in the year about the early stages of preproduction but now the feature is half way through principle photography at Adelaide Studios.

Producer Kristina Ceyton came into the studio to give us an update of the shoot and to talk about their Kickstarter campaign.


Lore is not your standard World War II film. For one it’s an Australian-German co-production. And it follows the journey of Lore and her siblings, children of a Nazi soldier, and what happens as everything they knew to be true starts to fall apart. Writer/director Cate Shortland spoke about the logistics of making a film in a country where you can’t speak the language and how to tell a story without judgement.

Danielle Tinker took home not only the First Prize of the Guru GreenRoom Film Competition but also the Audience Choice award for her film about culture clash, ‘Pardesi’. It showed to a full house at the Mercury Cinema on Tuesday amongst 9 other locally made short films, all based on the key word ‘Guru’. Danielle tells us about the origins of the story, how a taxi trip helped her out, and the importance of involving cast and crew throughout the filmmaking process.

It’s your average Saturday afternoon, you need to pick up a loaf of bread, some cabbage, you head to the supermarket and goddamnit, there are those sharks again! What do you do? Well Bait 3D is a new Aussie film full of tips for how to handle those sharp-toothed vermin. The film comes out this Thursday and director Kimble Rendall spoke to Rebecca about the movie and what it’s like working in genre film.

For those of you who are already skilled in shark combat then the work of Ursula Dabrowsky may do a better job at giving you a fright. She’s currently working on Inner Demon, a feature film that unlike her self-funded Family Demons is being financed by Film Lab. Rebecca spoke to Ursula about how production is going on Inner Demon and the state of horror film.

This show was chock-full of spooky sounds, with scares around every corner, so just make sure you listen with a light on!
