    The Throwback Director Louise Bertoncini Interview - The Nostalgia and Unwavering Hope for Film Communities and Culture

    Louise's short was made was funded through the City of Vincent Film Project, an initiative run in partnership with Revelation Film Festival where an emerging filmmaker is given $5,000 to make a short film about a story within the City of Vincent. It's a film about a video store in Mt Hawthorn, Network Video, that is sadly no longer open, but that doesn't stop the short film being one full of hope and optimism, a celebration of community and film culture.

    Matt Hale Interview - Hypnotism, Anxiety, Relationships, and Covid-19

    Matt Hale Interview - Hypnotism, Anxiety, Relationships, and Covid-19

    Matt Hale is a hypnotist who has performed at Fringe Festivals around the world and for corporate events providing guidance and support. While in this enforced reprieve that we all find ourselves in, Matt has released some helpful tools on his website for people struggling with isolation and mental health problems in this Covid-19 era.

    Andrew caught up with Matt to ask about hypnotism and the apprehension that some may have when it come to hypnotism, as well as discussing what can help with easing minds in this time of need, as well as helping out with relationships too.

    This is a worthwhile discussion to dive into, finding out about how best to approach the issues of our mind, and what actions we can take to tackle problems like anxiety and being around our partners 24/7.

    We'd love to hear from YOU about what mindfulness techniques you have been using to help out with your mind in this period of isolation. What music do you listen to to help you meditate? And what tips do you have for those living with their partners in this time of isolation?

    Find the useful resources on his websitehere for anxiety and here for relationships.

     

    Find more info about Matt at his Facebook page too.

     

    Check out the piece by Nick Cave on meditation.

Quickly becoming a favorite

I only discovered this particularly delightful film podcast a little while back, but I'm going through the back catalog with a quickness 'cause the hosts are smart and funny, and (I've gotta be honest here) their Australian accents really cheer me up for some reason. Thanks for that, guys!

Always a blast!

So, you enjoy film talk? You like insightful conversation? You love hearing two people hashing out old arguments day in, day out? Well, the first two are in sufficient supply to keep you entertained for days! The latter one.... well, maybe look elsewhere.

They have fun!

Give it a listen!
