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.
