This Is News Radio

Went to see the Oska Bright Film Festival’s Best of the Fest 2022 selection. First up was This Is News Radio, an Australian comedy short film. It shows the radio presenters playing all their jingles live, instead of just using a mixer of recordings, and it’s actually really amusing. Their producer is like, ‘Again, with passion!’ and they’ve got to keep themselves at the top of their game, just to produce the beats behind their introduction to the news. It’s shot in a grainy black-and-white, like some serious musical retrospective, which only makes it seem more absurd and hilarious. 7 minutes of fun.
