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.

Show 1.35, “Catching A Break”

Ben Oxenbould and Peter Phelps in "Caught Inside"

Caught Inside is the first feature film from writer/director Adam Blaiklock and premiered in Adelaide last night. Set in Bali and in the seas of Indonesia, it tells the story of a group of mates on a ‘surfari’ – surfing, drinking and partying. But, like all good psychological thrillers, things don’t turn out like planned.

Ben Oxenbould, probably best known for his comedic roles on the small screen in “Hey Dad” and “Comedy Inc”, pulls an Eric Bana on us and delivers a chilling performance as the indimitating “Bull”, ex pro-surfer and bully.

We speak with Adam and Ben about the movie – which was made with a main crew of 16 people! Catch the second half of the interview next week.

Show 1.29, “Stormy Horizons”

Dagan Herceg


Dagan Herceg is a recent alumni of Participate Film Academy in Sydney and as a part of the course he was required to make a feature film. That’s right, no short films for these guys. Horizon’s Crossing is premiering in Adelaide this Wednesday (you can keep up to date with the film on their facebook). Dagan was in town for the premiere and was kind enough to come into the studio to have a chat about his film.

Fred Schepisi


Australian director veteran Fred Schepisi has had an incredibly diverse career. He’s perhaps most famous for the classic The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith but has also worked with comedy with Roxanne and Fierce Creatures and drama with Six Degrees of Seperation. His latest film The Eye of the Storm (based on a Patrick White novel) stars Geoffery Rush and Radio Adelaide’s Arts Breakfast host Cath Kenneally caught up with Fred and asked him if Geoffery’s character, Basil, was a bit of a caricature.
