My Chat with Tony Ayres, Acclaimed Australian Film Director (The Saad Truth with Dr. Saad_562)
We discuss the directorial process including the casting of actors, the rebirth of television as an important medium for telling stories, similarities between the Quebec/Canada and Australian film industries, the narcissism of actors, how cultural products (including films) are fossils of the human mind (as covered in my works), and product placements in movies among other topics.
Apologies for some of the audio quality issues. Blame it on the relevant Australian Internet provider!
