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 1.15, “The Producer Hour”

Our themes are always accidental. Two of our guests this week come from a commerce background and have skills in various filmmaking roles but have ended up being labelled as producers.

Producing and composing may seem like wildly different skill sets but Aaron Nash does both. He was nominated for Best Composition in this year’s South Australian Screen Awards for his work on The Horror Film and is also producing one of the MRC’s “Got Genre” funded films, Isis. Aaron joined us in the studio today to have a chat about his career and his dream project (because we like putting people on the spot).

Our Arts compadre Cath Kenneally interviewed Mark Lewis, writer/director of Cane Toads: The Conqest, which is a follow up to his 1988 doco Cane Toads: An Unnatural Story. He also has the honour of making Australia’s first 3D movie. “Cane Toads: The Conquest in 3D” will probably be my favourite movie title of the year.
