Show 3.01, “The Agent Who Cast Me”

Katie and Gareth join Jordan and Finley

Some people say it’s rule number one, never work with children or animals! But perhaps kids deserve a bit more credit. In the lead up to Tropfest 2013 the Media Resource Centre has worked with a number of kids under 15-years-old creating films for Tropfest Junior.

Two films that came from their Tropfest Junior Bootcamp, How to Make a Horror Movie and Jumping Championships, have been shortlisted for the 2013 festival, along with Agora in the adult category.

Katie Powell and Gareth Wilkes from the Media Resource Centre joined us in the studio and gave us the low down on what went into preparing these films.

Carina & Nick with Jordan & Finley

The film industry, and acting in general, can often be quite difficult to break into. There are so many big productions going on in South Australia at the moment but how do you get in on the action? Where do you start?

Agencies are in place to connect productions seeking actors or extras with people who suit the part, while also helping performers prepare for the challenges of the industry.

Carina Gun and Nick Buckland run the Adelaide Artists Agency, and they joined us on the show to talk about the important role that agencies play.

Show 2.22, “Let’s Talk Derby”


thisisrollerderby.com

Last week Adelaide was host to The Great Southern Slam which brought a reported 1.3 million dollars into the state, along with a few hundred roller derby players and fans. What is roller derby? This Is Roller Derby. Well, that’s the name of an upcoming documentary by Australian director Daniel Hayward. But if you want an intro into the culture of derby and exactly why it’s the fastest growing women’s sport in the world (it’s even up for consideration to enter in the Olympic competition) check out the above trailer.

Daniel tells us the story of how he was introduced to the derby world and how it’s constantly evolving.

We bang on about the Media Resource Centre a fair bit on the show. But there’s good reason. If you’re an emerging filmmaker in Adelaide it’s your one stop shop for advice, equipment and they have a whole bunch of initiatives aimed at assisting people in making their first short films (and even beyond).

Katie Powell, production coordinator at MRC, came into the studio to tell us all about their new initiatives, including opportunities for funding short animation and music videos. I must apologise for our giggling Gertie antics during the start. But that’s why you love us, right?

We also replayed our interview with armourer John Coory. Ever wanted to know who’s behind all the explosions and gun fights on films? John is one of those guys.
