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.

Rant of the Week is from some of the crew behind Aussie film Big Mamma’s Boy and is our longest to date! That said, if you get two comedians and director in a room and ask them their views on the Australian film industry you are going to come out with gold – silver at the very least. In this we hear from George Kapiniaris, Frank Lotito and Franco di Chiera.

Iranian films have been winning internationally acclaimed awards for more than a decade, but in Australia little is known about the Iranian film industry. That’s about to change with the first Iranian Film Festival in Australia set to start on the 4th of August. The director of the festival Anne Demy-Geroe told The Wire’s Carly Nason why she thinks it has taken us so long to catch the Iranian film bug.
