Show 2.11, “World War 2, 2 Ways”

Danger 5 DVD artwork. DVD available from Madman.

Kate Croser is one half of independent production company Cyan Films, based at the South Australian Film Corp. They develop and produce feature films and have built up an impressive catalogue, including last year’s runaway success “Red Dog”. Another hit gracing the small screen is Danger 5, a web series she produced along side creator Dario Russo. Kate came in to talk Danger 5, and how easy was it to sell the concept of a 1960s World War II spy comedy to SBS and the benefits of premiering online before broadcasting.

CANOPY – feature film trailer for Pozible campaign from Finer Films Australia on Vimeo.

We’ve spoken a bit about filmmakers using crowdfunding to get their short films off the ground but it’s not often you see it as a way to fund a feature film. Producer Katrina Fleming and director Aaron Wilson have done just that with their film Canopy, a Australia-Singapore co-production set in World War II. They joined us on the phone to tell us about the difficult shooting environment and dealing with language barriers on multi national crew.

Show 1.37, “Run For Your Un-Life”

Zombie webseries "Livin' with Steve" (www.livinwithsteve.com)

Zombies are so hot right now. Or they will be. There’s even a zombie romance being made as we speak, starring Adelaide’s own Teresa Palmer.

On the slightly less disturbing side of the spectrum, we have Livin’ With Steve, an animated web series, about the enduring of friendship of man and man’s best friend, who happens to be a zombie.

Project producer Levi George and animator Jarrod Prince came into the studio to talk about their undead creation.

10 Metres - Run for your Life

What would you do if you were drugged and when you woke up found yourself strapped with explosives? Writer and director Rory Noke imagined just that and 10 Metres was born. Shot guerilla style over two weeks in Melbourne, Rory did what he could to get the film made – including having blank decoy tapes on standby if the authorities asked him to hand over his footage.

10 Metres was recently announced as one of four finalist for the DigiSpaa competition which supports low-budge digital feature films.

Rory Noke came in to the studio and producer Michael Clarkin joined us on the phone

Jonathan Teplitzky, writer/director of Burning Man chatted with us last week about his film. At the end of the interview I asked him his views on the Australian film industry for a segment we call “Rant of the Week”. In particular, he focuses on the need find another way of judging the ‘worth’ of Australian films.
