The Australian produced and directed zombie movie Wyrmwood, produced on a tight budget and released in 2015, was a surprise hit. It was funded through an IndieGogo campaign after the 10 minute trailer the directors produced went viral. In this interview with the director Kiah Roache-Turner, he talks about the perils of the internet as a film and TV director for your product. Also discussed is the directors new project “Wyrmwood TV” and his hopes that it will be seared into Australian pop culture.
- Wyrmwood is a new Australian TV show based off the movie of the same name.
- The movie Wyrmwood became the most illegally downloaded movie in the world and made little profit.
- The director,Kiah Roache-Turner, and his brother, Tristan, are hoping to make money off of this venture by getting it on traditional television outlets.
“My hopes and dreams for the show is to make a TV series that can explode a film fan’s brain in the same way I had my own brain melted by shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Fargo, Mad Men and Rome.”
