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 #152: Aleem Hossain – How to make a Micro Budget, award winning Sci-fi feature ‘After We Leave’

On Ep 152 Giles joins you from LA in his intro this week to celebrate the US release of his long-awaited feature film THE DARE. Headlining today’s episode, we chat with Aleem Hossain director of sci-fi feature After We Leave, winner of best feature film at sci-fi London 2019 and best director at Berlin Sci-Fi. Aleem gives Giles some insight into his process, in going low-budget, creating convincing VFX and eschewing a traditional production process to allow for more improvisation from his actors. He also touches on funding the film and targeting smaller festivals to win awards. We also talk on the importance of key collaborators, the formation of the film’s concept and script, working to a budget across the shooting and editing and getting great performances from a new cast.
