Tonight we talk film and we go deep. In fact, we go deeper than 3D and wider than a 70mm blockbuster.
Our two guests, Mark Knight (Script Consultant and former Assistant Director) and Tess O’Flaherty (Producer, Actor, Assistant Director), take us on a tour of the set of the world of movie making in South Australia and Australia.
One little gem Mark shares is when he puts cinema into perspective amid our other entertainment media:
Cinema grew out of theatre, he says. It is a visual thing, being able to what theatre cannot. We enjoy our characters in a plot. Whereas television grew out of radio. It might surprise you but TV is not a visual medium, because you can watch TV with your eyes closed. It is all about characters in situations. This heritage is why TV is given away for free, like radio. Whereas you buy a ticket to film, just like you did for theatre, you take a risk up front.
We hope you enjoy the epic conversation that oozes into all the segments.

|Film has a rich history in South Australia even though some pundits say we have endured some patchiness during recent decades. So tonight we’ve brought together two people who are intimately involved in the industry of dreams, to frame our understanding of this important art form, and direct us to a better appreciation for what succeeds here and what is left on the cutting room floor.|
