For those unfamiliar, with the series, The Filmmakers Podcast is a podcast about how to make films from micro budget indie films to bigger budget studio films and everything in-between. Our hosts Giles Alderson, Dan Richardson, Andrew Rodger and Cristian James talk how to get films made, how to actually make them and how to try not to f… it up in their very humble opinion. Guests will come on and chat about their film making experiences from directors, writers, producers, screenwriters, actors, cinematographers and distributors. They also shoot the breeze about their new films, The Dare, World of Darkness, Fanged Up, & Retribution too.


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

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.
