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.

Summer 6, “The Colour of Kerosene”

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).
