Hosts Giles Alderson (Arthur & Merlin) and producer Robbie McKane dive deep with Ross into action film-making, how to prepare the scenes, working on set, getting performance from actors and creating a safe environment to do so.

We discuss the virtual Cannes Film Festival just gone as his international sales agency and production company Evolutionary Films he runs with John Adams and Diane Shorthouse, his career, the importance of understanding if not mastering editing as a director and having brilliant collaborators such as fight choreographer Tim Mann, Production designer Paul Bentley and DoP Simon Rowling to help him create his vision.
