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 #203: HOSTS – How to Make a Micro Budget Debut Horror, Sci-fi Hit with Adam Leader, Rich Oakes & Neal Ward

This week Giles Alderson chats with Adam Leader, Richard Oakes & Neal Ward about their wonderful feature film ‘Hosts’. Which is a fantastic, home invasion, horror thriller with elements of sci-fi. It has already got to the top of the charts and it’s an incredible journey. Adam Leader & Richard Oakes directed the movie, they also produced it. Adam wrote it and Richard was the cinematographer. Neil is the star of the movie and he’s also been in features film such as ’Two Graves’ & ’24 Little Hours’. Two superb indie films.

So on today’s episode we talk about how having great visual and SFX is vital for a home invasion, gory, sci-fi. They talk about how they produced, shot & wrote the movie and directed together. We also talk about networking and how hard it can be for crew but how important it is for a filmmaker. We also talk about their YouTube channel, DarkFableMedia because that is the place where they asked people to invest in their film and made all of this possible. They successfully made enough money and filmed all of this in just 10 days.
