Director's Note: "Wild Things is a fast paced, colourful video shot during the 1990 St Kilda Festival. It attempts to capture the diversity and breadth of the festival which encompasses art, music, theatre, history and poetry. The emphasis is on local participation, underlining St Kilda's traditional creative environment.

SKA T.V. is a community access T.V. station established in 1989 to provide local community with access to film, video and T.V. It has produced over 60 hours of programming, staffed by volunteers and broadcasting periodically to the St Kilda area.
