Hey folks – I’m sorry I missed a July update! I wanted to let you know what’s going on. So in June / July we shot six interviews with scholars in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney – 18 hours all up! It was a huge learning experience for me (Cam) as the writer and interviewer, because I quickly realised the difference between shooting a 90 minute film and making a 100 hour podcast series. There’s no way I can fit everything I originally wanted to into this film, and I’ll have to focus on the top four or five points I want to make. But the good news is, I’ll have all of the interviews and we will put them out in the form of extras or a podcast or something, for those of you who are interested in the meaty details.
Right now we are working on a 5 – 10 minute teaser featuring the Australian scholars we have interviewed, to show some potential investors and distribution partners. Next we have to go to the USA and UK to do more interviews and it would be nice to have some additional funds in the kitty so I can go over there for a couple of weeks instead of a couple of days. But I’ll report back soon and let you know how it’s going!
