Going from Shorts to Marvel movies. Directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck on making Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind & Captain Marvel.
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.
T-Shirts, Hoodies, Mugs, Masks and Water Bottles all now available in some very cool designs.
