So it’s a little later than I had hoped, but episode 2 of the Beermovie Podcast is finally here. I think it is a pretty good chat, so hopefully it is worth the wait.
For this episode I am joined by Briony Kidd, who co-founded and programs the excellent Stranger With My Face horror film festival. As well as that, Briony is also a writer, director and screenwriting teacher amongst a bunch of other things. We have a great chat about all of Briony’s work and finish it off by talking about Allison Anders’ pretty incredible film Grace of My Heart (1996).
Amongst a bunch of random diversions, we manage to cover off on:
0.00 – Introduction & slightly random question, where should we find our next female directed Aussie horror fix
3.40 – Genre distribution in Australia
8.35 – The Stranger With My Face film festival
24.34 – Horror and feminism
31.55 – The difficulties of horror comedies
33.34 – Writing for screen & stage and the art of writing independently
42.14 – Alison Anders’ Grace of My Heart

This is something I’ve talked about for a long time, but it’s finally here. The first episode of The Beermovie Podcast. Part of the reason I haven’t been writing and commenting as much as usual has been my focus on this, so I hope you dig it. These are going to be monthly chats between someone involved in the film industry and yours truly. Each episode will focus on the work or interests of the special guest, before an in-depth look at a film of their choice.
The first episode features filmmaker and podcaster Paul Anthony Nelson. We cover off on a whole heap of topics (chapters outlined below if you want to skip to something in particular), including Paul’s films, microbudget filmmaking, the podcast Hell is for Hyphenates and finish off with a solid chat about Tim Burton’s Ed Wood. There were a few sound issues toward the end, but hopefully it’s not too much of a distraction.
