“Wolf” – Making a film with Universal and the Art of Casting & Rehearsing with writer-director Nathalie Biancheri
Today, we welcome writer-director Nathalie Biancheri to the show! She is the mind behind the feature films Nocturnal (2019) and the art-house drama Wolf (2021), starring Lily-Rose Depp, George MacKay, Paddy Considine, and many more!
Nathalie sat down with our hosts, Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir, to talk all about the making of her two feature films. She really goes in-depth on the whole pre-production work. She discusses her casting process, what it was like to lose her lead actor a few months before shooting, and why you shouldn’t write for a specific actor. She talks about the importance of rehearsals, directing actors, the creative process behind Wolf, budget, and finally, what it was like to have Universal on board.
All that and more is to come in today’s episode. So, sit, back, relax and listen to this week’s episode with the rather delightful Nathalie Biancheri.
WOLF is out!
Jacob, a man who believes he is a wolf trapped in a human body, is sent to a clinic by his family where he is forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of "curative" therapies at the hands of The Zookeeper. Jacob's only solace is the enigmatic wildcat with whom he roams the hospital in the dead of night. The two form an improbable friendship that develops into infatuation.
