Show 2.44 “The Not So Silent Fanboy”

There are so many challenges to being an independent filmmaker that receiving recognition for your work can certainly go a long way. This week the Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) announced the DigiSPAA feature film competition winner for 2012, Producer Daniel Okoduwa and Director Michael Kang for their film Kemi. The feature focusses on a community of African Immigrants living in Blacktown, NSW, is told through the eyes of the character Kemi and is based on Daniel’s experiences. He spoke to us abotu what it’s like winning the top honours.

Adelaide is currently playing host to a range of sci-fi and fantasy icons with the Supernova Pop Culture Expo. One of those is the man behind Torchwood‘s Ianto Jones, Welsh actor and musician Gareth David-Lloyd. He joined us in studio to chat about what it’s like being part of a sci-fi production with such a cult following, as I tried my best to hold in my inner fanboy.

You don’t find many silent movies in the cinemas these days, but until November 26th the Mercury Cinema is playing host to Silent Remasters, which involves old silent films being accompanied by original scores composed here in Adelaide. One film on offer is Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror, and we spoke to Jesse Schuppan who was responsible for composing the music for this remaster.

Show 2.23, “Independent’s Day”

10 METRES trailer – Rotterdam 2012 from Rory Noke on Vimeo.

We spoke to Rory Noke last year just before he went to the DigiSPAA awards night with his feature film “10 Metres”. The Adelaide based writer/director (and camera operator at Channel 10) took the title and is now back in town after a whirlwind tour of Europe (or more realistically – film festivals that happened to be in Europe). Rory came into the studio to tell us what it’s like to take be thrown into fighting ring that is film distribution.

We talk to many filmmakers who juggle their creative passions with their day jobs. One clearly funding the other because let’s face it – film, like crime, doesn’t pay.

Alex Nakone is someone doing just that. He satisfies both sections of his brain with his day job as a GP and ‘other job’ as a writer/director. His short Mr Morag’s Helical Dreams explores the ethics of human cloning and has been screened in a number of festivals, including winning Best Sci Fi at the 2011 Barossa Valley Film Festival.

Alex was also involved in creating the Indie Film Festival, showcasing some of the amazing shorts coming out of South Australia.

Alex came in to discuss the festival and his own upcoming short, “Ouroboros” and, of course, how to handle two disparate jobs.

And a huge welcome to Jordan Archer who is taking over hosting duties from Chrissy Kavanagh while she takes a three week break. Jordan brought the goods and the awkward segues like an old Behind the Screens pro.

Show 1.37, “Run For Your Un-Life”

Zombie webseries "Livin' with Steve" (www.livinwithsteve.com)


Zombies are so hot right now. Or they will be. There’s even a zombie romance being made as we speak, starring Adelaide’s own Teresa Palmer.

On the slightly less disturbing side of the spectrum, we have Livin’ With Steve, an animated web series, about the enduring of friendship of man and man’s best friend, who happens to be a zombie.

Project producer Levi George and animator Jarrod Prince came into the studio to talk about their undead creation.

10 Metres - Run for your Life


What would you do if you were drugged and when you woke up found yourself strapped with explosives? Writer and director Rory Noke imagined just that and 10 Metres was born. Shot guerilla style over two weeks in Melbourne, Rory did what he could to get the film made – including having blank decoy tapes on standby if the authorities asked him to hand over his footage.

10 Metres was recently announced as one of four finalist for the DigiSpaa competition which supports low-budge digital feature films.

Rory Noke came in to the studio and producer Michael Clarkin joined us on the phone

Jonathan Teplitzky, writer/director of Burning Man chatted with us last week about his film. At the end of the interview I asked him his views on the Australian film industry for a segment we call “Rant of the Week”. In particular, he focuses on the need find another way of judging the ‘worth’ of Australian films.
