The Filmmakers Podcast #130: How to Direct a Folklore Horror

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 #130: How to Direct a Folklore Horror Film, The Village in the Woods, with Director Raine Raine McCormack

Today we’re joined by director and composer Raine McCormack to talk classic Hammer horror, and share our mutual love for The Wicker Man as we discuss his film The Village in the Woods, out on-demand in the UK now. Producer Robbie McKane catches up with Raine at the BFI LFF 2019 whilst Creator and host Giles Alderson gets some much deserved rest after his shoot on the upcoming Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot. Eager listeners may be in for a bonus episode later this week…

Robbie and Raine chat about staying motivated throughout a lengthly production, using music to help with the writing process, getting funding together for a feature film the Kevin Smith/Robert Rodriguez way.We also talk film scores and sound design, as Raine has a background in music and in true John Carpenter fashion scored The Village in the Woods himself.
