IFC Premieres "Indie Down Under"

Xcel Board member Rick Edrich announced this afternoon that his film production company,

"Spot has teamed up with IFC and Tourism Australia to bring 'Inside Oz,' premiering Saturday, March 18 at 8 p.m. on IFC! This half-hour long special produced, shot and edited by Spot Creative, Inc. gives you front row seats to the annual 7-day celebration of Australian art, commerce, culture and history held in LA known as Australia Week, or 'G’Day LA.' We had a blast producing the bit, having the chance to chat it up during interviews with huge Aussie celebs like Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana, and Olivia Newton-John, as well as John Travolta, who hosted the big Penfolds Icon black tie gala dinner. We even got to talk to Steve Irwin, 'The Crocodile Hunter.' "The show also highlights almost everything Australia, from fashion, wine, film, arts, and lifestyle to indigenous culture and tourism. So sit back and relax as we take you 'Inside Oz' this Saturday on IFC. It might even inspire you to take the long trip Down Under!"
In addition to its commercials and corporate video work, Spot's award winning independent features, documentaries, and short films can be seen on IFC, Sundance Film Channel, and coming soon to a theater near you. My personal favorites include the Family Portrait music video (co-produced with Generation Xcel) and a 20th anniversary documentary on my parent's ministry.

'Inside Oz', was terrible. There was no pursuit for authenticity. The report was highly biased and had no respect for the truth; furthermore, Austrailia was portrayed as a Utopia with an absence of racism.
