INTERVIEW | KANE SENES


Following the release of his new movie For Now, we had a chance to chat with UNSW alumni and Australian filmmaker Kane Senes.

“ Fully improvised dialogue, shot off an outline with a 2 man crew… with 4 actors all in one car driving down the highway… on a minuscule budget… We just went and made it that way, because no one was going to help us… so it’s so possible to do that. All you need is an idea and some masochistic energy.” 

In this Blitz Radio interview, Will got to talk with Kane Senes, UNSW alumni and co-director of the new comedy-drama film For Now- currently out on Ozflix streaming platform. Kane shares the inspirations behind the story, the experience of shooting a feature in 7 days on the road, crowdfunding, and his musings on the future of filmmaking. UNSW creatives and filmmakers, this is not something you want to miss. Check out the full, uncut interview podcast below.

Following its international festival circuit and 2019 online US release, the heartfelt comedy feature For Now had its Australian digital roll out on Ozflix on November 1.

With its crowdfunded micro-budget of $25,000, a seven day shoot and three-man crew, this hilarious, honest and heart-warming road-movie is the first feature by emerging filmmaker Hannah Barlow and the second for Kane Senes

Blurring the line between reality and fiction, For Now features improvised performances based closely on the actors who play them. Hannah – an aspiring young Australian actress living in Los Angeles, arranges an audition at the San Francisco Ballet Company for her estranged younger brother Connor – a professional dancer based in Europe. Both siblings are still grieving the deaths of their beloved parents whist trying to build a future for themselves - continents apart. Hannah’s boyfriend Kane and her best friend Katherine join the road trip up the Californian coast, bypassing many wondrous sun-soaked sights … as well as their self respect.
