Adelaidean Emma Hack‘s ‘body of work’ (now, there’s a pun she’s bound to have heard a few times) is featured on one of the most hyped Youtube clips of the year. She was the woman behind the paint brush on Gotye and Kimbra’s music clip “Somebody That I Used to Know”, directed by Natasha Pincus, which is currently sitting on over 70 million views. The song won the coveted top spot on the 2012 Triple J Hottest 100 countdown and is climbing the charts in the US and the UK.

Jennie Lenman from Streetcast and I interviewed the lovely Emma about her involvement in the music video. Ever wanted to know how painful it is to stand still for 23 hours while someone paints your naked body? Why women are easier to paint than men? Listen below. The second half of the interview in which we get into the nitty gritty of Emma’s personal work can be found on the Streetcast wordpress. Her Fringe exhibition entitled Emma Hack 2002 – 2012: The Journey” is open from February 22 to March 18 at the Fringe newest venue The Big Slapple, found at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Tim Standing, of Adelaide film and media company Daylight Breaks, came into the studio today to talk about his upcoming documentary “The Haitian Footsoldier”. It follows the story of Jonas Rasmussan – the man behind Home For Haiti, a not for profit organisation using old shipping containers to provide homes for earthquake stricken island. Born in Haiti and adopted by an Australian family when he was 6, Jonas hopes to use his tradie skills to deliver homes to those who needs them. Tim talks about filming in Haiti and the impact it made on him.

Chrissy and I also had an in depth conversation about the importance of film marketing in regards to Working Dog’s new comedy “Any Questions For Ben?”. We’re not the only ones who are wondering what went wrong and why people aren’t going to the cinema to see this Aussie rom com.
