Show 2.43 “The Love Bed”

Aurora Murphy joins Rebecca and Jordan in the studio

You’re walking down Rundle Mall when someone walks up and asks you to hop into bed with them. How would you react? For the last couple of years Aurora Murphy has gone around Adelaide with her bed, asking people to hop in for sugar and conversations about love! Aurora joined us in the studio to talk about her project ‘Spreading the Love‘, which is airing in a yellow bus ‘Pop Up Cinema’ as part of the Feast Festival.

2012 has been a really strong year for Aussie film and television. With movies like The Sapphires doing really well in the box office and shows like ‘Puberty Blues’ on the small screen. In fact, spending is up 25% in the industry! Dr Ruth Harley is the CEO of Screen Australia, and she spoke to Angus Randall from Radio Adelaide Breakfast. You can find the interview here.

 

The Hola Mexico Film Festival hit the Mercury Cinema last night and will be running until Wednesday.  The festival’s Director Samuel Douek joined us live from LA to discuss the festival and the current state of the Mexican film industry.

As media consumers we are inundated with choices – not only in content but in the ways we can consume. But what’s happening to Australian content? Free to air channels must follow Australian content guidelines while subscription television can play what they want. We had no data on just how much our viewing habits have changed with new technologies until now.

Screen Australia has published a report entitled Convergence 2011: Australian Content State of Play. Chrissy spoke to Chief Operating Officer of Screen Australia, Fiona Cameron about the report’s findings.
