by Phil Wheat

Here’s the latest episode of the The Filmmakers Podcast, part of the ever-growing podcast roster here on Nerdly. If you haven’t heard the show yet, you can check out previous episodes on the official podcast site, whilst we’ll be featuring each and every new episode as it premieres.

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 #106: How to make a sci-fi cult classic with Iron Sky & Iron Sky: The Coming Race director Timo Vuorensola

Timo Vuorensola sits down with Giles Alderson and Robbie McKane to chat making his epic Iron Sky feature and his latest release in the trilogy Iron Sky: The Coming Race. He talks about his start as a filmmaker by creating a studio in his mates garage and how he made Star Wreck and watching as it grew into something huge. How he created a buzz for his ‘Nazi’s on the Moon’ concept in Cannes and got interest from some big players and how he started an early Kickstarter to raise money to shoot the film.

How being a debut filmmaker can be daunting, how he was nearly fired and how he learnt fast and hard and turned it around. He talks about his new film in the Iron Sky series The Coming race and how you can work with actors on a CGI heavy film. And how constant sauna use is perfect for Finnish filmmakers and humans alike and so much more.
