Another Aussie in LA
Join Ansuya Nathan as she navigates the city of Angels, chatting to some of the shiniest Aussies in L.A., sharing their tales of living, working and playing on this side of the globe.

This little podcaster can't believe her luck! Stuart Beattie - writer of Collateral, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Australia and writer/director of Tomorrow, When The War Began -  joins me for chat. WOO FRICKIN' HOO!  We talk about the ridiculous rollercoster from development to production, being in it for the long haul, the Hollywood rewrite, getting script notes from John Marsden and Pirates as a Star Wars. He busts open the myth of overnight success and shares the origins of midnight screenings. Hmmmm... Maybe it's time for me to keep banker's hours. WARNING: There are snoring puppies and couch farts.
