Everyone has a story. The following interview is taken from the best of Andrew Denton's award-winning Enough Rope series, ranking among the most penetrating discussions from the 2000s with celebrities, larger-than-life personalities, and average Joes.
In 1971 George Miller, a young medical student, won a spot in Australia's first filmmaking workshop. There he was given a roll of film, two minutes and forty-five seconds long and told to tell a story. The result was extraordinary - a completely finished film, edited in camera, the likes of which his tutor, Phil Noyce, has never again witnessed. "All I could see," said Noyce, "was a film genius." Since then, that medical student has brought us Mad Max, Babe, Bodyline, Bangkok Hilton and Happy Feet to name but a few.
