Roobla Podcast EP 3: Josephine Mackerras

The award winning writer and director talks about her debut feature film Alice!

Hello everybody, what’s up? You’re listening to the Roobla Podcast with me, Tom Salmon! The show that dives into music, film and games and everything else in between.

My guest on this week’s episode is Josephine Mackerras, who wrote, directed and produced her debut feature film Alice (2019) starring Emilie Piponnier and Martin Swabey. The film had its world premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival on the 10th of March and won the SXSW Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature and CherryPicks Female First Feature Award.

We jumped into Josephine’s filmmaking career, the double standard women face within society and what her dream film project would be, all right before she headed off to SXSW and her debut film stormed the festival!

You can read L Steed’s glowing review of Alice right now!

  • Hey Sam! I can't attach a feature picture to this post, is it something to do with my permission access on the new system? Best, Tom
  • Hey Sam, it's the new system, I'm just trying it out for my latest podcast episode with Greg Lucey and I'm trying to attach a picture - it uploads the picture and then says I don't have permission to attach it :(
  • Hi Tom, I'll look into this today. I think I already know what the issue is. It's because the media being uploaded is not associating itself to a post ID. Thank you for being my test dummy. At least this creation dialogue is working!!!
  • Hey Sam, I've tried again just now still the same issues I'm afraid :( I'd also look at the text editor I'm not sure if the texted/front is properly formatting at the moment (there's big gapes in the spacing, front size). If you want to jump around inside my draft and see what's what please do! I think I am going to use the legacy editor to upload today, but we can work  on testing and refining the new editor together :) Best, Tom
