1. Richard Harris, CEO of South Australian Film Corporation.

Richard spoke about the SAFC’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations and the next 40 years for South Australia’s screen agency. Amongst the festivities is an exhibition called “From A Sunday Too Far Away” at the State Library of SA which includes behind the scenes treasures from their Hendon vault. We also discussed the reasons behind the change from the SAFC as a film producer, to a funding agency in 1994.

2. Amiel Courtin-Wilson, director/writer/producer of Hail.

Amiel’s first feature, “Hail”, has documentary elements but a fictional narrative. It’s an emotional journey between Danny and Leanne, who both play fictional versions of themselves, but at its core it’s a love story

“Hail” begins its Adelaide run tonight (October 20) at the Mercury Cinema on Morphett St. Amiel and lead actor and inspiration Danny P Jones will be there for a “meet the filmmaker” session after the screening.

3. Ian Darling, director of Paul Kelly: Stories of Me.

Ian is no stranger to documentaries. He has directed and produced many feature documentaries, including the AFI award winning “The Oasis” (2008) and his most recent work is his doco on Paul Kelly, “Paul Kelly – Stories of Me”. He is also the founder of Documentary Australia Foundation, a philanthropic initiative supporting the documentary film industry in Australia. We spoke about that and finding enough footage through 40 years of material for a feature length film.

“Paul Kelly – Stories of Me” is showing at Her Majesty’s Theatre this Thursday, October 25, at 7.30pm. Paul will also be there and performing a small set.

Jordan, Leigh and Zaen terrorise North Terrace.

4. Bec Buratto, head makeup artist for the Adelaide Zombie Walk; 5. Leigh Madden, SFX artist and denture work specialist; and 6. Zaen Ghast, latex and prosethics.

So why do people want to dress up like zombies for charity? Because it’s amazing fun. Three makeup artists who supply their talents for the Adelaide Zombie Walk came in to the studio to chat gore, latex and dirty good fun.

We didn’t have enough time to get our SFX fill so tune in next week for the second part of our interview where we discuss the future of makeup (CGI killed the makeup star?) and how you can get your hands dirty in the world of latex, blood and gore.

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.
