"It was cool, there was no real villain," said Lincoln Lewis, who plays city boy looking for a good time at the B & S ball, Nic, "In the whole story there was no actual villain. Yeah there was little bits and pieces of the slimy motives of Nic just wanting to hook up and stuff or whatever it may be but there was no actual villain. I think there was just the love story surrounded by all this humour and sort of 'Do I, do I take that next step?'"
"They're all creating their own kind of - creating their own boundaries in their heads almost," added Morgan Griffin, "They're all afraid of something, or they're all not saying how they feel."
Check out my full interview with the delightful stars of Spin Out, Morgan Griffin, Xavier Samuel, Travis Jeffery and Lincoln Lewis.
The laughs don't come from a nasty or judgemental place. You don't feel these characters are being shown in a one dimensional, good vs. evil kind of light. Everyone has their good and bad points, their triumphs and failings, and you wind up loving these familiar larrikins and rooting for their successes.
Kudos has to go to the filmmakers and Jon Hume (lead singer of Evermore) for packing the soundtrack with great Australian music from a variety of genres and eras. I also want to commend the sound recorders, editors and engineers because the sound effects, background noise and the aforementioned music levels were outstanding. The film editing was also tight, beautifully supporting the comic timing and keeping the movie's pace in check, so you're never left feeling bored or thinking, "Get on with it."
"It's like a fun film where it's just like a big Aussie party," said Lincoln, "It's a big Aussie party out in the country. Lots of jokes..."
"And then lots of characters in the film too," Xavier added, "And all the characters have their own arc, and everyone's sort of wrestling with something..."
"It's so fast! It just keeps moving all the time..." Travis interjected.
"And it's all very relatable," Morgan added, "Even though there are all these hilarious, quirky characters, there is a lot of truth to them as well. Despite all the hilarity of it and the comedy..."
Travis continued, "All the characters are real."
