 CALLING ALL PRODUCERS

 

Do you want to add points to your box office, interest from your audience and profile to your film then you ought to conside TIFTAF.  The Institute For Titling Australian Film is a discrete department working within Smart St.  For too long Australian films have laboured under the weight of titles which, no matter how good the film, have sabotaged their own chances of success.

With all due respect, which film are you going to pay to see BORED OLIVES or TWO LANE BLACKTOP?  It's not rocket science. Your title is the first contact an audience has with your film.  Tempt them.  

So many Australian films have titles which make potential audiences avert their eyes that we though we should do something about it.  We came up with TIFTAF.  TIFTAF will help you choose a title which will make audiences say "Wow, what's that about?"  It's a dark art but one that 3.10 TO YUMA, MEAN STREETS, COOL HAND LUKE and WEST SIDE STORY have in common - it's simply a great title.  Give yourself a chance and check TIFTAF

Film Clip Of The Week

BACKROADS by Phillip Noyce

BACKROADS has to be one of the best movies made in Australia.  For such a big country there are strangely few road movies but this is one in the classic mould.  It's a clash between black and white Austraklia as three men are chased across outback New South Wales and the backwoods poverty experienced by Aboriginal Australia.  Great dialogue and performances by screen legend Bill Hunter and Aboriginal activist Gary Foley.  This is one of the first films made in Australia which had creative involvement from Aborigines.  Directed by Phillip Noyce (The Quiet American, Rabbit Proof Fence) this is a memorable journey into a heart of darkness.  This is one of the most popular films in our catalogue.  The DVD is from a high quality remastered version and includes many unique extras.

John Cooper Clarke is one of our favourite poets.  His tight rhythms and sharp insights have outlived the punk scene in which he first emerged, opening for acts such as The Clash, Joy Division and Elvis Costello.  He's one of England's National Treasures.  The following interview with John appeared in the English magazine The Idler which gives a great insight into his thinking and how amphetamines saved western democracy.
