Writing and Directing Kindred, a Sky Original feature with Joe Marcantonio

Writing and Directing Kindred, a Sky Original feature with Joe Marcantonio

July 20, 2021

This week Giles Alderson (Wolves of War) is joined by writer and director Joe Marcantonio who’s debut feature film Kindred stars Fiona Shaw, Tamara Lawrence and Jack Lowden and is on Sky Movies now as a Sky Original

Joe has a wonderful chat with Giles about his career and how it lead to making Kindred. He talks about making his short film Red Light starring Jessie Buckley and how a chance meeting a anti natal class led to his first feature.

He discusses where his ideas come from and his writing process and why a therapist would be good on (and off) set. We also chat dealing with reviews, casting, talking and directing named actors and what he learned being a runner/set PA and why being a director does not mean being a dictator.

Tracy talks about what she learned from editors, how she creates storyboards, how she works with actors, and what directing is really about. Jennifer discusses how she came on board as a first-time writer and how she became a better screenwriter by being on set.

Sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode on the writer-director-collaboration with Tracy Wren & Jennifer Cooney.

 

Rain Beau’s End is out NOW!

How to Turn your Short Film into a Feature Film with Surge director & writer Aneil Karia

How to Turn your Short Film into a Feature Film with Surge director & writer Aneil Karia

June 1, 2021

Today on The Filmmaker’s Podcast, Giles Alderson and his co-host Dom Lenoir chat with Aneil Karia, the writer and director of Surge starring Ben Whishaw, which premiered at the World Competition at Sundance Film Festival 2020.

They dive deep into how Aneil turned his short Beat into an award-winning feature. He discusses how they developed the script, how the thematic heart of the film drove the writing process, how they raised the money and what it was like to work with Ben Whishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer; Skyfall).

Aneil also talks about his inspiring filmmaking journey. What it’s like to be at the beginning of your career. That it’s also necessary to learn what you don’t want to do. And why it’s important to stay true to yourself along the wayEPISODE LINKS
