Short film, and new webseries, both from Adelaide

I heard about a couple of small Adelaide film developments yesterday. The first is a one minute entry in the local Short Circuit Film Competition, made by an enthusiastic bunch of people I used to be in a screenwriting group with. Turn Up The Heat was written by Sally Hardy, directed by Annalouise Sortini, and produced by Stuart Sturgess, Sally Hardy, Nathan March and Annalouise Sortini.


You can VOTE FOR THIS FILM in the competition up till the end of 31 August 2014.




The other item of news relates to the release of the trailer for the new season of the web series Wastelander Panda.

One of the last remaining pandas in the Wasteland, Isaac has grown up with his family under the rule of the Tribe of Legion. Responsible for the violent death of a young girl, Isaac is banished to the savage world of the Wasteland, and sets out to find a replacement to reinstate his family into the tribe.
The new series, called Wastelander Panda: Exile, consists of 6 x 10 minute episodes. It will have its world premiere on ABC iview (September 20th, 2014), followed by the international premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas (September 18th-25th, 2014).

I suppose a panda is a metaphor for a stranger. All those wonderful production values wasted on a poor quality mask.

And speaking about looks, while I am being shallow I might as well mention that Hugo Fielke is VERY handsome. And Emma Kew can really act. I see she is a local Adelaide girl. What a find! It makes such a difference to a movie when the acting is top quality. Top marks to the movie makers for giving the actors so much opportunity in such a short movie. I really liked it.
