Robotic Nazi Terror – Interview with Stephen Amis
The 25th Reich is a World War II film set in outback Australia, where a group of soldier’s is sent out to retrieve two escaped pumas. They are also transporting a strange box. The box is actually a time machine, add in Nazi’s and an alternate future and you’ve got a recipe for a classic! The film is a throwback to the classic B-movies of the 50’s, filled with fantastic imagery and charismatic characters.
In the interview Marcey and Stephen discuss how the film was made, from the very early days with getting finance, to the 2 years + of post production (working on the special effects). The chat is a great source for finding out how making a low budget film in Australia, and also working in a genre the country just doesn’t do much of anymore.
