Scott Mann on Directing ‘Final Score’ with Dave Bautista & Pierce Brosnan and working with and directing Robert DeNiro on Heist. Giles Alderson hosts

March 26, 2019

Giles Alderson sits down for a natter with director and producer Scott Mann to chat indie film-making working in the studio film system and dealing with on set nerves.

Filming in Bulgaria with The Tournament and the great film crews they have there.

We talk how he made a teaser trailer for the Tournament. Got offered a mil as soon as he got to Cannes to get it made but no guarantee he would direct it so he turned it down. People suddenly wanted the project but he wanted to direct. And even with offers on the table It still took two years and having to sign on the dole while he tried to get it made.

Then trying to close sales on the Tournament and getting Ving Rhames to agree to star in the film after having to wade into the sea in Cannes to get a better reception on his phone whilst doing so. Loosing finance during prep and not being able to leave the hotel as bills not paid!! And getting cash flow on a sheet of yellow paper.

We discuss getting star struck and dealing with the fear on set with actors and how Hugging Robert DeNiro changed his mindset

Working with Harvey Weinstein after The Tournament and possibly making a remake of Seven Samurai

The wonderful tale of when he talked to Robert DeNiro via Skype and going on to work on the script and directing Robert on set of Heist.

Making action movie Final Score and how it came together so quickly

Having no extras in the stadium where they filmed. Having a high above the line and a low below the line. Creating and setting up the action in films. Storyboarding for himself and making a film when you know the set is going to be torn down.

How to Make a Studio Indie Movie with Jack Binder producer of Oscar Nominated First Reformed with Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir

March 5, 2019

 

Experienced Hollywood producer Jack Binder has not only worked with some of Hollywood's A-listers including Ben Affleck, Adam Sandler and Kevin Costner but he has also produced studio movies as well as the studio indie and the outright indiefilm. His latest film First Reformed staring Ethan Hawke was Oscar Nominated this year for best screenplay!

 

Starting out as an assistant and ended up creative director and working with Oscar winning producer Michael Phillips (The Sting)

 

How as a producer you can work with your brother who is the director.

 

What to do when the shit hits the fan on set and the best way to deal with it.

 

We talk about the difference between producing a studio movie to an indie film and what you can go about to make it work for you.

 

Working with stars like Kevin Costner and Ben Affleck, who they act on set and how you should too. We ask him is there a difference between setting up a film in the U.K. to the US?

 

And how important it is your banking production account is set up before the money comes in.

Ep 95 How to Make a No-Budget Indie Thriller and stay at No.1 in the Amazon charts for 6 Weeks with The Redeeming’s director Brian Barnes and hosts Giles Alderson & Andrew Rodger

February 12, 2019

Director Brian Barnes sits down with Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Andrew Rodger (To Dream) to talk about his debut feature film The Redeeming which became a No.1 selling film on amazon for 6 weeks!

We talk how he made his indie film, what happened on set. How he had learnt so much from making corporate films and short films that prepared him for making The Redeeming.

We discuss how being an editor made a huge difference not only in shooting but in the post production stage as well.

How test screenings are a huge advantage to help make your film better and how marketing should be about the film and not the people who made it.

And how he gave batman Begins director Christopher Nolan his first job in film-making.

Brian Barnes

Has directed 25 short films, including the 5 times award-winning The Urge, which won a Best Screenplay award and also a Best Film Prize under jury president Timothy Burrill . The Urge was the 8th most watched horror film on IndieFlix for well over a year from its launch in January 2014

He has co directed two features films and his debut film The Redeeming which was released on VOD in last year and topped the charts as the no.1 thriller for 6 weeks

Ep 94 How to raise finance & get distribution for your indie film by cold calling with Nathan VonMinden director of The Challenger Disaster

February 5, 2019

Giles Alderson sits down with director and writer Nathan VonMinden to chat how he made his indie film The Challenger Disaster by raising finance and getting distribution himself .

They chat about how scary and wonderful it is to see your film on a big screen and how you can't hide the flaws when it's up there for all to see.

There are no set rules for filmmakers, you find your own path but you have to become a business person and how he phoned around and cold called people to raise the finance to make and distribute the film.

How shooting dialogue scenes is hard and you are never as good as your dailies or as bad as your first cut and how it takes a team to make a film.

This is a truly inspirational talk about how you can make your indie film happen and all props to Nathan for doing so.
