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 #121: ‘The Dare’ – How to Survive Your Own World Premiere Night, with Giles Alderson, Bart Edwards and Jonny & Lina Grant after the screening at Popcorn Frights Film Festival in Miami!

Giles Alderson sat down with his co-writer Jonny Grant, his wife Lina Grant and his lead in The Dare actor Bart Edwards to chat how their experience of the first ever screening of The Dare went down and how they felt at the World Premiere of a movie some of them had been working on for 5 years! LIVE from Popcorn Frights Film Festival in Miami. They talk how Bart Edwards got cast in The Dare , his audition techniques, acting advice and best tips for castings. They talk how Jonny and Giles wrote The Dare, their journey to get it to the screen. First day on set nerves, how they re-wrote lines on set and how Giles designed the movie with his DoP Andrew Rodger and his directing style.

As well as The Dare, Bart Edwards starred in Season 3 of Lifetime’s critically acclaimed series “UnREAL” and in the Norwegian series “Lykkeland” (State of Happiness) that recently had its World Premiere during the Cannes Series Festival in France. Jonny Grant co wrote The Dare and has also written 8 other feature screenplays. He has recently co-written ‘Knights of Camelot’ for Signature Ent. which starts filming later this year.
