We’ve been casting our ears back to 2012 over the summer on Behind the Screens on our special Summer editions but the sun is soon setting. From Australia Day we’ll be back with Season 3 of the show, bringing you the freshest news and interviews on Australian film and TV.
In the meantime we thought we’d get back into the swing of things with a live chat with the folks behind 2012 Raw Nerve short, The Colour of Kerosene. The film is finished and had a premiere alongside fellow Raw Nerve films in December, but now it’s time for the festival circuit. Producer Eleanor Perry and director Rory Noke came in to talk about their current Pozible campaign, how low budgets make you creative, and how YOU can add extra pizazz to your news segments (courtesy of Rory, former news cameraman).
Danger 5 is a warped look into the derranged world of 1960’s spies on the hunt for Hitler. Born out of a love for 1960’s mens magazines, the shows creators David Ashby and Dario Russo are in the midst of writing the second series… whilst also being nominated for an AACTA award and some Logies. You can help them compete against Seal and the X-factor by voting got them here.
Our interview went on all types of glorious tagents, that can only be truly understood by listening…

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.
