On the air

Those in the Sydney area who tuned in to Eastside 89.7 FM last Friday would have heard me on the Cinemascape show reviewing Morgan Spurlock's Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden. This week I'm producing the show as well as reviewing Marjane Satrapi's animated feature Persepolis. The show will also feature reviews of Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder and Roy Andersson's You, The Living.

Triangle set visit

Filming has just wrapped in Queensland on Triangle; the latest film from producer Chris Brown. I was lucky enough to be invited up to the Sunshine State to visit the set and interview many of the cast and crew. Brown, the producer of classics like The Company of Wolves, Mona Lisa and The Proposition is becoming a one man film studio in the State having previously produced the Spierig brothers Daybreakers and it was a pleasure, as always, to chat to him about the film. Triangle is being directed by Brit Christopher Smith of Creep and Severence fame and from what we saw on set, he has another intriguing take on the horror genre in the making. Brown showed us around the set of the liner, built on The Spit on Surfers Paradise but as you can see from the picture of the producer and myself, the Sunshine State certainly didn’t live up to its name. My coverage on the making of the film will appear in Shivers near the time of the film’s release next year.
