Writing & Directing a BFI & BBC Films backed debut movie Body Of Water with film-maker Lucy Brydon

Writing & Directing a BFI & BBC Films backed debut movie Body Of Water with film-maker Lucy Brydon

October 20, 2020

This week Giles sits down (virtually) with the amazing Lucy Brydon, writer and director of Body of Water a beautifully made female-led drama backed by BBC Films and Film London.

Lucy reveals how she made her start in film whilst teaching in China, getting into short films and production work before starting work on Body of Water which started life as a short film.

We hear about the development process, from pitching the film as a short at festivals, to applying to the Film London development lab before being selected. Giles asks Lucy about her screenwriting process, the many changes the script went through and the importance of staying faithful to the original concept.

Finally, we chat about day to day life on set, working with the BFI and BBC to develop the rough cut and getting a cinema release amid lockdown.

Going from Shorts to Marvel movies. Directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck on making Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind & Captain Marvel.

Going from Shorts to Marvel movies. Directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck on making Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind & Captain Marvel.

September 8, 2020

This week Giles interviews writing and directing team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to discuss their impressive career and body of work from the indie scene to working with Marvel.

Anna and Ryan first made an entrance with their indie hit Half Nelson, which picked up a best actor nominee for a little known actor named Ryan Gosling. Following on from that they’ve managed to make an intriguing combination of creative indies as well as studio hits, Giles asks them how they balanced both kinds of projects, what their approach is to directing as a pair and how they’ve changed their filmmaking process in transitioning from film to digital.

We also chat about working within the unique Marvel Studios process, gauging the right audience for your film and knowing when to stop putting pressure on yourself as a director.

 

In our bonus episode for this week, Giles and Robbie discuss their strategies for dealing with criticism within the industry in a healthy way. Access this and our other bonus episodes on our Patreon Page.
