How to Direct a Character-Led Mystery Thriller with Rowan Athale discussing his feature Strange But True
Director and screenwriter Rowan Athale joins us today to discuss his new film Strange But True, out on-demand in the UK now.
We learn about how Rowan broke into the industry by producing shorts and commercials, eventually leading to his debut film Wasteland (known in the UK as The Rise) starring Timothy Spall and Vanessa Kirby, a script that he refused to sell without being attached as director (a trick he learned from Stallone's fight to make Rocky).
We also take a deep dive into Rowan's latest film Strange But True , starring Margaret Qualley, Amy Ryan, Greg Kinnear and Brian Cox, we chat thriller conventions, directing actors, editing ensemble pieces and more.
Producer Robbie McKane flies solo on this episode, and we hear from Giles as he hits the halfway mark on his location-based shoot for Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot
