Show 2.13, “Studios and Stages”

David Lightfoot

South Australian producer David Lightfoot is a man of action. Sick of the predictions of woe about the lack of features being filmed in the state, he’s decided to do something about it.

I spoke to David, on his second appearance on the show, about the American production he’s trying to entice to Adelaide and he also comments on some of the issues of bringing international productions to Australia.

We’ve been covering some of the South Australian Screen Awards nominees over the past few weeks and have been quite amazed at the diverse nature of many of the films. Sam Wright, co-producer, of one of the Best Feature nominees, 6 On The Street, is a champion of the local music scene. Documentaries about Adelaide live music are few and far between ( … I can’t think of any) but Sam decided that it’s time to make one. He spoke to us about the concept and the filming of “6 On The Street” and where he’s taking his passion next.

Show 1.25, “Build It And They Will Come”

SAFC CEO Richard Harris

South Australia is in a state of transition at the moment as far as film is concerned. And there is no one better to talk to about the future vision of our industry than CEO of The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) Richard Harris. He gave us the low down of the new Adelaide Studios in Glenside and what it will mean for the South Australian film industry.

Six on the Street is a new film project that takes an intimate look at twelve Adelaide artists in a series of six-minute documentaries. They sent local musicians to perform in unique areas around the city and then filmed the results.

This is part of the Your Take Sessions, which interview artists from all around the country and showcase performances from musos including Washington, Old Man River and Cloud Control.

Local indie collective fourwords is presenting a fundraiser for “Six on the Street” where twelve of the films are being screened tonight at the Rhino Room.

Radio Adelaide Breakfast presenter Tim Brunero asked the project’s producer Sam Wright how it all got started and you can find the audio at the Radio Adelaide Breakfast blog.

The Clare Valley Film Festival is now open for entries for 2012. Festival Director Chris Bishop was raised in the valley but now resides in London and curates much of the festival from there. We gave him a call to ask how the planning for CVFF 2012 is going but we couldn’t help but ask him how London is coping in the wake of the riots.
