Show 1.23, “Late Starts and Upstarts”

The 90s began over 20 years ago. Excuse me while I digest that for a bit and ponder my mortality.

Andrew Shanks decided to embrace the years and wrote, directed and co-produced Joystick Heroes, an ode to childhood innocence and arcade games. Andrew, along with Daniel Vink and Dave Gregan make up Subconscious Studios. Radio Adelaide station manager Deb Welch and I spoke to Andrew and Dave at the Clare Valley Film Festival earlier in the year about Joystick Heroes and their 24 Hour Film Challenge entry. From rural South Australia to an international film festival in Sydney! The guys just got back from Little Big Shots International Film Festival where Joystick Heroes screened to an eager young audience. Andrew joined me in the studio today to chat 90s nostalgia, arcade games and also a bit about film.

Heather Gryst decided she wanted to try her hand at film at the age of 40 and has since produced a handful of short films, including Poetry Workshop and also worked on the upcoming Danger 5. I asked Heather what made her decide to delve into the world of film.

Show 1.16, “Blame and Burgers”

Writer/Director Michael Henry’s first feature film Blame is out at the cinemas now. Blame is a low budget thriller shot in the Western Australian bushland. It’s a tale of revenge and what happens when you trust the wrong people. It had its world premiere at the Melbourne Film Festival last year and was selected to play at the Toronto Film Festival, one of the biggest in the world.
Michael spoke to me about his career and the lengthy process of making a feature film.

Ben Mylius joined us again in the studio, a month or so after his debut, to tell us how his film is progressing. Ben is the writer of a script that received funding through the MRC’s Got Genre initiative to be made into a short film. “The Burger Joint” is only a few weeks away from shooting now – it’s almost crunch time. He brought along the cinematographer (DP, camera dude, etc) Jonathan Baker and we ask them both if they’re feeling the stress.

Show 1.8, “Nostalgia Hour”

We picked up some great soundtrack requests from our Facebook page. If you want to send us into a wonder-filled nostalgia coma please comment and suggest more. I’m going to convince Chrissy to let me play some 90s Disney cartoon themes in future shows. Anything is possible.

“The Burger Joint” is a script written by Ben Mylius and is soon to be directed by Amy Killin. It’s a heist film with a Tarantino vibe. Supported by the Got Genre initiative and the MRC, these two are getting together to make this low budget film. We will hopefully track the progress of “The Burger Joint” from the pre production right through to post. We started off by asking Ben to tell us how the script came about.

Our Rant of the Week ™ goes to Leon Ford and if you’ve been following the show recently you know he gave us an indepth interview about the creation process of his film Griff the Invisible and some of his upcoming projects. He gave us a very positive rant! Don’t start ringing the death knells of the industry just yet.

Septimus Caton is not an Autobot. He’s a member of Sydney band Kids at Risk who worked on much of the music for Griff the Invisible. We asked him how he got involved in the film and a little bit about the music video that ties into the film.
