Show 1.35, “Catching A Break”

Ben Oxenbould and Peter Phelps in "Caught Inside"

Caught Inside is the first feature film from writer/director Adam Blaiklock and premiered in Adelaide last night. Set in Bali and in the seas of Indonesia, it tells the story of a group of mates on a ‘surfari’ – surfing, drinking and partying. But, like all good psychological thrillers, things don’t turn out like planned.

Ben Oxenbould, probably best known for his comedic roles on the small screen in “Hey Dad” and “Comedy Inc”, pulls an Eric Bana on us and delivers a chilling performance as the indimitating “Bull”, ex pro-surfer and bully.

We speak with Adam and Ben about the movie – which was made with a main crew of 16 people! Catch the second half of the interview next week.

Show 1.5, “French Chic and Austalian ‘Porkies'”

Still so many film festivals happening. It’s an endless fiesta of excitement. Right now both the Alliance Française French Film Festival and Windows on Europe Film Festival are screening AND the Shorts Film Festival opens on April 9.

If all these films are making you itchy with desire (I heard it’s a thing) to make your own there are some helpful workshops coming up. In a joined venture by the Shorts Film Festival and the Australian Writers’ Guild, a writers masterclass presented by Karel Segers on April 16. One of the biggest issues that gets raised on our show is that Australia has so much talent but is maybe not marketing our films the right way. This workshop is all about learning to sell your screen concept and connecting with audiences. Crucial for any film.

MRC are holding a FREE seminar on April 13 all about the fundamentals of animation production in support of their animation initiative that will be running again this year. Also a great chance to talk to some like-minded people and make connections. Follow the links for more information.

The Alliance Française French Film Festival opened at Palace Nova Cinemas on March 23. The festival – now in its 22nd year, is bigger than ever, running for 19 days. This is the largest foreign film festival in Australia, and the main French cultural event in Australia. Catherine Zengerer, from Breakfast, spoke to Director of the Alliance Française French Film Festival, Philippe Marsé, and he gave the low down of the festival and some of the great films that will be screening (including some ‘orror). You can download and stream the audio at the Radio Adelaide Breakfast wordpress.

Our weekly rant segment called “Rant of the Week” (we stretched ourselves coming up with that title) goes to writer/director Matt Jenkin. Matt was on the show last week talking about his latest short film, Family Values, and while I had him on the phone I asked him for his take on the rant and if he could break down some of the issues for us. He brought up some interesting points involving distribution and how sometimes films are perceived as unsuccessful when that may not be the case.
