In today's episode we chat to award winning playwright and screenwriter Lally Katz about her debut feature film “Stories I Want To Tell You In Person”, which was adapted from her 2013 one woman show.
In this episode we chat with Margot Nash about her incredibly moving new documentary “The Silences”, which is screening as part of this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival.
Margot is a Sydney based Screenwriter, Director, and Academic. She initially began her career as an actor for film & TV, before moving on to creating her own works, including the features "Vacant Possession" and "Call Me Mum".
This episode we chat with location manager Drew Rhodes about all the ins and outs of securing and managing locations for film and TV. Drew has worked on a whole bunch of productions from both Australia and the US, including the features Animal Kingdom, My Year Without Sex, & I, Frankenstein, and TV shows The Pacific, It's a Date, House Husbands, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Twentysomething, and Satisfaction.
This week we're excited to bring you our very first live episode, recorded at the St Kilda Film Festival with the one and only Adam Zwar. In addition to our regular audio podcast, we also have a video version you can check out below!
Adam Zwar is probably the closest we have to a renaissance man here in the Australian film industry. He is a writer/actor/producer, and is co-founder of production company Highwire Films. Adam is perhaps best known for co-creating & starring in the televisions shows Wilfred & Lowdown, as well as the factual Agony series on the ABC. We chat to him about carving out your own niche in a very competitive industry, and the journey he's taken from his first short films, all the way to getting noticed in Hollywood.
We're very pleased to bring you a special surprise episode with Ariel Kleiman, the writer/director of the brand new feature film Partisan, which received a phenomenal reception at the 2015 Sundance film festival and has only just been released here in Australia today. Ariel took us through the process of putting together the film, as well as his thoughts on creating a unique cinematic experience, his directing methodology, working with children & first-time actors, and a whole bunch of other great tips for young filmmakers.
