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.

Show 1.30, “Mrs Carey’s Concert and Mr Weber’s Words”

Mrs Carey’s Concert has been an unlikely sucess story. It follows the story of a music director, Karen Carey, at an all girls’ school in Sydney, preparing her students for a concert at the Opera House. Mrs Carey believes in ‘the transformative power of great music’ but her passion is not shared by all her students – music is compulsory at MLC School.

After only 11 weeks in theatres it crossed the $1 million mark at the Box Office and has recently received an AFI Award nomination for Best Feature Length Documentary.

Sophie Raymond directed Mrs Carey’s Concert with Bob Connolly. It was her first venture into live action film! We asked Sophie how she got involved in the project (part one) and if she still keeps in contact with the main ‘characters’ of the film (part two).

Josef J Weber, director, producer, writer

Josef J Weber is known around Adelaide as “that horror guy” but while he has had success in the genre he has a lot more than just horror in his sights.

His independently financed short I Rot has made it into film festivals all over the world and he’s in the pre-production stages of two music videos funded through the Media Resource Centre’s Clip It initative.

Rebecca spoke to Josef about his upcoming projects, his thoughts on the term “torture porn” and his upcoming trip to Los Angeles. But, of course, we need to know where his career began.
