Gimme Gimme Gimme

Friday 5th December / presented by Tanya Bunter

RTRFM's Gimme Some Truth is in it's second year and Artbeat took a very special look at the films that make up the festival and the people, music and stories behind them.

For film audiences who lack commitment, WA Shorts is perfect.

They’re the time-poor’s friend and provide interesting and intriguing stories in a short space of time.

The work of several WA filmmakers and producers will showcase this Sunday, including The Big Splash Band Comp and Radiothon 2014.

Filmmakers Chris Butler, Bryan Kruger and Mat Sav joined us to chat about their films.

When new music ensemble Decibel embark on a tour of regional WA, its strange, confronting music rattles the cages of small towns and baffles locals.

Insightful, bizarre and humorous, the world premiere of No Encore will appeal to fans of the genre and road stories alike.

Producer and director Kenta McGrath joined Tanya to tell us more.

Beautiful Noise is the story of bands that changed the way music was made in the late 80's - out went glam and stadium rock and in came black clothes, Ray Bans and noise. It was a time when the tone of your guitar was more important then the colour of your hair and the person on your arm.

A time when music once again became the most important thing and the louder the better. My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Slowdive, Swervedriver, Jesus and Mary Chain and The Cocteu Twins made this music and Beautiful Noise is their story.

Ten years in the making and made by fans, Chris Wheeldon spoke to Beautiful Noise Director Eric Green about his movie and the music it was made for.

Chris started by asking him was he always a fan of the music…

Let’s hear the story of one Western Australian fan’s 30-year obsession and devotion to rock musician and technological pioneer, Todd Rundgren.

It’s a deeply personal yet comedic portrait of an isolated devotee on his journey to meet his idol.

It also serves to introduce the enigmatic star to an unsuspecting audience – and Helele Lambatsos asked the documentary’s Producer and Director Gavin Bond – Todd who?

Twenty years after the release of Nas‘ groundbreaking debut album ‘Illmatic’, Nas: Time is Illmatic takes us into the heart of his creative process.

Returning to his childhood home in Queensbridge, Nas shares stories of his upbringing, his influences — from his jazz musician father to the hip-hop scene in New York City — and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at twenty.

Featuring interviews with his ‘Illmatic’ producers Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, L.E.S., and DJ Premier and musical peers Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys, Nas: Time is Illmatic documents Nas’ evolution from a young street poet to a visionary MC.

Tanya Bunter chatted to Director One 9 about his film.
