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.


The Filmmakers Podcast #201: How to Write, Direct & Produce your own micro budget, debut feature film with Silent Night’s Will Thorne

Joining us on this weeks podcast is Director, writer and producer Will Thorne who sits down with Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar (Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot) to discuss how he made his debut movie Silent Night. Not only did the movie go into cinemas during Covid but has done incredibly well on VOD and DVD. Will discuss the inception, how he wrote it, brought the producers on board and got distribution. He also talks about making shorts and working in TV before breaking out into features. He discuss the hard work that has gone into making Silent Night, the favours and the late nights, the casting, how it felt on set, working with fellow producers Mark Lacey and Judd Tillyard, going to film festivals and the joy of seeing your film released.
