Show 2.05, “Tropfestivities”

Chrissy and I couldn’t host the show today because we were on the set of Dinner With Hugo, the short film Chrissy is producing. One half of our summer team, Owen, took the reins and did it in style!

Tropfest Jr is the Tropfest for kids 15 years and under. This year South Australia has our very own ambassadors in The Screenseekers, the bunch of youngsters behind “Juice Lords”, a short about juice bootlegging. Tallulah, Harper, Wahniki and Gina came into the studio for their very first radio interview. We ask them about sharing the work load and what it’s like being a Tropfest finalist.
(apologies for the audio quality. we’re blaming gremlins)

Thomas Cant decided to give animation a whirl after studying architecture at university. Apparently architecture isn’t the glamourous world that tv and movies make it out to be, sorry George. And what an introduction into a new industry. His very first animated short has made it to the Tropfest finalist shortlist. Clarence’s Kite is one of the films competing for the 16th spot in the Finals (with a capital F). You can vote at the Tropfest youtube page. We had a good chat about the strenuous process behind animation and the dangerous Survivor style world of filmmaking.
