Show 3.02 “Bathing The Hungry Creatives”

Hungry creatives Bayley Broome-Peake Left Haylie Craig Right

Creative industries can be incredibly hard to break into, especially without contacts or mentors in the area.

Hungry Creatives is a project that hopes to bridge the gap between budding creatives and industry professionals through. Currently the project features video interviews with both people trying to make it and people who already have.

Haylie Craig and Bayley Broome-Peake are two of the young creatives behind the project and they joined us to have a chat about the project, where it’s going from here, and even to pitch a film to us.

Bathing Franky

Showing as part of the Summer Scoops Film Festival at the Mercury Cinema, Bathing Franky is all about a young man who steps into the surreal world of Rodney, an older many who cares for his mother full time.

Shot over 20 days on a tight budget the film manages to blur the lines between imagination and reality, exploring the fantastical and the grim.

Owen Elliott, the director of Bathing Franky spoke to us about the film, which manages to blur the lines between imagination and reality.

Show 3.01, “The Agent Who Cast Me”

Katie and Gareth join Jordan and Finley

Some people say it’s rule number one, never work with children or animals! But perhaps kids deserve a bit more credit. In the lead up to Tropfest 2013 the Media Resource Centre has worked with a number of kids under 15-years-old creating films for Tropfest Junior.

Two films that came from their Tropfest Junior Bootcamp, How to Make a Horror Movie and Jumping Championships, have been shortlisted for the 2013 festival, along with Agora in the adult category.

Katie Powell and Gareth Wilkes from the Media Resource Centre joined us in the studio and gave us the low down on what went into preparing these films.

Carina & Nick with Jordan & Finley

The film industry, and acting in general, can often be quite difficult to break into. There are so many big productions going on in South Australia at the moment but how do you get in on the action? Where do you start?

Agencies are in place to connect productions seeking actors or extras with people who suit the part, while also helping performers prepare for the challenges of the industry.

Carina Gun and Nick Buckland run the Adelaide Artists Agency, and they joined us on the show to talk about the important role that agencies play.

Arcayus is the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic world, and Wastelander Panda is his story. After the release of the prologue in January and a successful crowd-funding campaign the project was able to spend three weeks in the Flinders Ranges filming three short episodes expected to be released early 2013. And with a spot at next year’s South By South West in Austin, Texas, who knows where Wastelander Panda will be heading next. Fresh back from the shoot writer & director Vic Cocks and cinematographer Viv Madigan joined us in the studio for an indepth chat about the shoot, where the project is heading next, and video game easter eggs.
