How to Edit a Star Wars Movie with Rogue One and Monsters Editor Colin Goudie with Phil Hawkins, Giles Alderson & Robbie McKane hosting.

August 20, 2019

 

This week we sat down with wonderful editor Colin Goudie who regales us with his wonderful stories about editing the incredible Gareth Edwards film Monsters and Star Wars: Rogue One.

 

How both films differed in budget but yet were the same in terms of emotion and making sure the story is key.

 

Phil Hawkins tells us about his Star Wars fan film: Origins and how it took 3 years to make and why he wanted to make a fan film in the first place especially after having made 5 feature films in the past.

 

Listen to Phil Hawkins episode as a guest Ep 14

 

We talk about Colin Goudie's background, leaving school at 15, going to art college, learning 35mm B&W stills photography - Going to film school, learning to tell stories with individual still photos - Putting himself forward for jobs on student films, making himself useful - Breaking into the industry as a runner, getting hired by the BBC as an editing assistant.

 

We talk Colin's first meeting Gareth Edwards whilst working on BBC programming 'Atilla'. How he working on Monsters and the unusual film production style, entirely improvised, no script, 120 hours of rushes, a fitting challenge to even an experienced editor.

How to Make a Film On Your OWN with NO Crew!  Surviving the Outback’s director, producer, writer, editor & star Mike Atkinson AKA ‘Outback Mike’ joins Giles Alderson

How to Make a Film On Your OWN with NO Crew! Surviving the Outback’s director, producer, writer, editor & star Mike Atkinson AKA ‘Outback Mike’ joins Giles Alderson

August 6, 2019

The adventure filmmaker Mike Atkinson joins us on the Filmmakers Podcast to chat how he went about making a feature film all on his own! with no crew and in the middle of nowhere! The extreme outdoors, photography and filming are his passion. This led him to start filming his own adventures. "When I watch TV and the internet, what I see doesn’t capture what it’s really like to be alone in the extreme outdoors. Nearly everyone you see is being followed by a film crew and it detracts from the realism of what could otherwise be something interesting that I’d like to watch!"

We chat how he avoided crocodiles, ate dog balls (not the ones you think), got permission form the aboriginal tribes, learnt film-making form this podcast and others as well as youtube, raised his own cash, bought his own equipment and planned for years to create a brilliant inspiring feature film that captures something no-one ever gets to see.

He talks how he packed everything into a rucksack, shot with drones and how he powered the batteries and his laptop as he went, let alone ate and drank while he tried to survive all teh while tracig the steps of two survivors from the past.

How he leaned how to edit and had to work out what certain phrases and techniques were and all the deliverables he had to produce and complete for the distributors so his film 'Surving the Outback' could be released.

How to Make a Cross-Genre Supernatural Thriller Indie Film with David Tarleton director of HUNTER with Giles Alderson

How to Make a Cross-Genre Supernatural Thriller Indie Film with David Tarleton director of HUNTER with Giles Alderson

July 30, 2019

 

This weeks guest is the writer, director, producer and editor David Tarleton who sits down with Giles Alderson to talk how he made his indie film Hunter.

 

We chat how to make a cross-genre film, dealing with investors, casting appropriate actors and working with them on set, allowing them to bring things to the table.

 

How he shot in RAW and came up with a unique look for a film in the grade. We discuss the trick to maintaining and building tension by restricting the audience to a single character viewpoint and withholding info to build suspense and should you call your film a vampire movie when their are vampires in it?

 

An award-winning producer, director and editor, David holds an M.F.A. in Cinema Television from the University of Southern California, studied filmmaking at New York University, acting at Northwestern University, and has a Bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies from the University of Virginia.

 

David has created programs for Sony Pictures, The Muppets, Syfy Channel, Walt Disney Pictures, 3Net, Fox, Comedy Central, Disney Channel, Tokyopop, Mattel, Universal, Warner Brothers, Baby Einstein, Showtime and more.

 

David is a producer and a director of the new 3D television series "Dark Secrets," on cable channel 3Net. He is executive producer, director and editor of the award-winning new media comedy series "Dorkumentary," starring Adria Dawn, and was editor of the Webby Award-winning Muppets series "Statler and Waldorf From The Balcony," for Disney. His breakthrough film as producer/director/editor, the gothic fairy-tale "Dinner," premiered at Slamdance, played on the SyFy Channel, and was released on DVD.

 

David produced and edited the award-winning feature documentary "What Babies Want," narrated by Noah Wyle, and its follow-up "Reducing Infant Mortality." He produced and edited "The Making of Warriors of Heaven and Earth," and "The Making of Double Vision," for Sony Pictures. He was also a producer, DP and editor on the pilot for "Dark Secrets," and senior editor for "The Pat Kilbane Show" for Comedy Central. He was VFX Supervisor for the award-winning feature documentary "Head Games," directed by Steve James. David was the senior editor at Wirebreak, a pioneering Internet video content provider.

How to Make an Indie Feature when you are still in School with ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’s Hillary and Anna Shakespeare. Giles Alderson & Robbie McKane host

How to Make an Indie Feature when you are still in School with ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’s Hillary and Anna Shakespeare. Giles Alderson & Robbie McKane host

July 23, 2019

Giles Alderson (The Dare) and producer/editor Robbie McKane sit down with the lovely and talented Shakespeare Sisters to chat how they made their micro budget indie films 'Soundtrack to Sixteen' and 'Much Ado' without ever having made a film before.

Now deep into the edit on their second film the girls regale us with their stories about how they roped their friends into making the film, how they chose to make the film last minute before Hilary went off to University and how they learned on te job by hiring great people around them.
How they wrote the film between Anna school lessons and how they shot the movie in the school where so many of things in the film happened.

How they managed to get a crew together and how they cast the movie and even ended up in it themselves. How they worked out the shots and how to direct on set in a very organic way.

This should inspire any filmmakers out there that anyone can make a film even if you have no experience and make a cracking film in the process.
