Show 2.36, “Ladies On Film”

The Babadook is a curious name for a curious tale. A single mother, a 6 year old boy, and a possibly corporeal storybook monster.

SA based producer Kristian Moliere spoke to Behind the Screens earlier in the year about the early stages of preproduction but now the feature is half way through principle photography at Adelaide Studios.

Producer Kristina Ceyton came into the studio to give us an update of the shoot and to talk about their Kickstarter campaign.

Lore is not your standard World War II film. For one it’s an Australian-German co-production. And it follows the journey of Lore and her siblings, children of a Nazi soldier, and what happens as everything they knew to be true starts to fall apart. Writer/director Cate Shortland spoke about the logistics of making a film in a country where you can’t speak the language and how to tell a story without judgement.

Danielle Tinker took home not only the First Prize of the Guru GreenRoom Film Competition but also the Audience Choice award for her film about culture clash, ‘Pardesi’. It showed to a full house at the Mercury Cinema on Tuesday amongst 9 other locally made short films, all based on the key word ‘Guru’. Danielle tells us about the origins of the story, how a taxi trip helped her out, and the importance of involving cast and crew throughout the filmmaking process.

Show 2.24, “Independent’s Day 2: Dutch Tilt”

Dave de Vries

Dave de Vries doesn’t sleep. Or he’s a world champion time manager. He’s a director, producer, writer (for comics and screen), radio presenter, teacher, deputy mayor, illustrator, festival director and wine connoisseur. He took a few moments from The Wine Show on Triple B FM 89.1FM in the Barossa Valley to chat to us about film, comics and genre. In his words “Australian film is in the dunny”. Do you agree?

Last week we had Dr Alex Nakone in to talk about balancing a medical career with his love of filmmaking. His film “Ouroboros” will be premiering tonight at the Indie Film Festival. Dan Hynes, actor in “Ouroboros”, came in today to talk about shifting from theatre to film, and dedicating 15 months of his life to a hitman.

In preparation for our hosting gig tomorrow night for the Q&A with Rolf de Heer and Gary Waddell, Jordan made a quiz to help me brush up on my Rolf knowledge. We’ve called it “Rolf de Heer nor There” and “Rolf de Harris: which Rolf was it?”

Show 2.20, “Local Produce”

Helen Leake with Beck and Chrissy

Helen Leake has been producing feature films for nearly 20 years. Her new film Swerve, in cinemas from June 7, was filmed in South Australia using SA crew and facilities. She called it an Australian film noir – something I’d love to see more of!

Outside of producing, Helen was also CEO of South Australian Film Corporation between 2004 and 2007 and was a commissioner at the Australian Film Commission (now known as Screen Australia). She’s currently co-chair of the Australian International Documentary Conference

We were lucky enough to have Helen in the studio to pick her brain about “Swerve” and what it’s like to be a producer in Australia.

Audio coming soon but you can listen to the entire show below – Helen’s interview starts at 3’15

We did introduce the show mentioning that new filmmaker Tim will be joining us but due to tricksy public transport he couldn’t make it in. We did, however, have a chat about the new Rebrand SA movement and Scott Hick’s recent comments on it. Should SA change its name? Or is that neither here nor there and is a completely derailing suggestion? … Guess which side we’re on.
