With blood, guts, and a whole bunch of indie filmmaking gusto, genre-fiends brother duo Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner flipped the Aussie film industry on its with the outback-zombie flick Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead in 2014. With sci-fi follow up Nekrotronic under their belts, they turned their attention to the hotly anticipated and equally bloody follow-up, Wyrmwood: Apocalypse. Continuing on this post-apocalyptic mayhem journey where zombies breath has become a substitute for fuel, Kiah grows as a director in impressive ways with this new entry.

In part one of a deep dive interview with Kiah, we explores how this entry came about, the influence of Ozploitation masters, and dig into the freedom that low budget filmmaking affords.

Make sure to come back and check out part two on Wednesday, where Kiah talks about recognising the talent in yourself, inventive drone shots, and more.

Tickets are selling fast at Sydney Film Festival and MonsterFest (Melbourne).
