Baz Luhrmann goes Podcast crazy

It’s all in aid of Australia. The film, not the country...

Anyone who has ever bought one of those special edition Baz Luhrmann DVDs for the likes of Moulin Rouge and his other movies knows the director likes to cram in as much making-of material as he can.

Now he’s getting a head start on the process before his new release Australia is even in cinemas, let alone on shiny disc. He’s starting a series of Set To Screen podcasts, in which he’ll document various parts of the movie’s production. It’ll ultimately be a film education course, with one lucky viewer getting the chance to help out in the postproduction stages.

He’s always an interesting talker, so this should be something special. Head on over to Apple for more info.
