Show 2.30, “The Animation Revelation”

Animation, it’s a style of filmmaking where just about anything is possible, and one’s imagination can run wild. While we’ve all seen the Disney classic cartoon-style animations, the idea of an animation made out of charcoal drawings is something you probably don’t see everyday.

Petar Ristic & Annie Nguyen with Rebecca & Jordan

That is the style that local filmmaker Annie Nguyen chose for Her Name Wasa short animation produced by Alexandra Blue that premiered last Thursday in Adelaide. Based on a poem written by Hugo Barata the film was funded by the Media Resouces Centre’s ‘Frame by Frame’ program.

We spoke to Annie, the Director, Screenwriter and Animator along with Petar Ristic, the Sound Designer/Mixer about how they went about shaping the vision on screen.

On the opposite end of the animation spectrum comes Livin’ with Steve. An animated web series about a man and his best friend, who just happens to be a zombie! In contrast to Her Name Was this series was created digitally using Flash, and is available for viewing online.

With ambitions for a second series we looked back at our chat with project producer Levi George and animator Jarrod Prince on what inspired them.

You can find the podcast for the interview in the post for Show 1.37.

Now that the Olympics are wrapping up we also thought it was a good time to encourage you to keep the patriotic blood flowing, with a number of great Australian films out in cinemas, such as I Am Eleven, Not Suitable for Children, The King is Dead and The Sapphires. So why not go and check them out?

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.
