Kate Croser is one half of independent production company Cyan Films, based at the South Australian Film Corp. They develop and produce feature films and have built up an impressive catalogue, including last year’s runaway success “Red Dog”. Another hit gracing the small screen is Danger 5, a web series she produced along side creator Dario Russo. Kate came in to talk Danger 5, and how easy was it to sell the concept of a 1960s World War II spy comedy to SBS and the benefits of premiering online before broadcasting.

CANOPY – feature film trailer for Pozible campaign from Finer Films Australia on Vimeo.

We’ve spoken a bit about filmmakers using crowdfunding to get their short films off the ground but it’s not often you see it as a way to fund a feature film. Producer Katrina Fleming and director Aaron Wilson have done just that with their film Canopy, a Australia-Singapore co-production set in World War II. They joined us on the phone to tell us about the difficult shooting environment and dealing with language barriers on multi national crew.

The 90s began over 20 years ago. Excuse me while I digest that for a bit and ponder my mortality.

Andrew Shanks decided to embrace the years and wrote, directed and co-produced Joystick Heroes, an ode to childhood innocence and arcade games. Andrew, along with Daniel Vink and Dave Gregan make up Subconscious Studios. Radio Adelaide station manager Deb Welch and I spoke to Andrew and Dave at the Clare Valley Film Festival earlier in the year about Joystick Heroes and their 24 Hour Film Challenge entry. From rural South Australia to an international film festival in Sydney! The guys just got back from Little Big Shots International Film Festival where Joystick Heroes screened to an eager young audience. Andrew joined me in the studio today to chat 90s nostalgia, arcade games and also a bit about film.
