Six people. Two hosts. One hour. We call that a challenge and the challenge is accepted.1. Richard Harris, CEO of South Australian Film Corporation.
Richard spoke about the SAFC’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations and the next 40 years for South Australia’s screen agency. Amongst the festivities is an exhibition called “From A Sunday Too Far Away” at the State Library of SA which includes behind the scenes treasures from their Hendon vault. We also discussed the reasons behind the change from the SAFC as a film producer, to a funding agency in 1994.

Amiel’s first feature, “Hail”, has documentary elements but a fictional narrative. It’s an emotional journey between Danny and Leanne, who both play fictional versions of themselves, but at its core it’s a love story
“Hail” begins its Adelaide run tonight (October 20) at the Mercury Cinema on Morphett St. Amiel and lead actor and inspiration Danny P Jones will be there for a “meet the filmmaker” session after the screening.

Ian is no stranger to documentaries. He has directed and produced many feature documentaries, including the AFI award winning “The Oasis” (2008) and his most recent work is his doco on Paul Kelly, “Paul Kelly – Stories of Me”. He is also the founder of Documentary Australia Foundation, a philanthropic initiative supporting the documentary film industry in Australia. We spoke about that and finding enough footage through 40 years of material for a feature length film.
“Paul Kelly – Stories of Me” is showing at Her Majesty’s Theatre this Thursday, October 25, at 7.30pm. Paul will also be there and performing a small set.

We didn’t have enough time to get our SFX fill so tune in next week for the second part of our interview where we discuss the future of makeup (CGI killed the makeup star?) and how you can get your hands dirty in the world of latex, blood and gore.
