RØDE Microphones presents The Power Of The Short – a Q&A format with four Australian filmmakers, each with experience in how short films helped form their careers in features and in television.
Hosted by My RØDE Reel ambassador Tim Ross – whose career includes radio DJing, stand-up comedy, production and starring roles in several TV comedies and documentaries – the series looks at four unique filmmakers with a conspicuous pedigree in short films.
Episode 1. The Indie Horror Makers.
Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner – The Roache-Turner brothers turned their self-funded, shot-on-the-weekends zombie movie Wyrmwood into an international hit in 2015, setting themselves up for a second feature in 2017 and a Wyrmwood TV series in development.
“Make your short film crazy,” advises Tristan (producer). Kiah (director) agrees, adding that making a short proved a direct line to making a feature. “Our first Wyrmwood short film was a proof-of-concept that got 300,000 hits in the first week.”
