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.


The Filmmakers Podcast #224: How to Make an Award winning Indie Hit ‘Nina Forever’ with the Blaine Brothers.

Today on the show, Giles Alderson and his co-host Dom Lenoir welcome the fantastic Blaine Brothers, Chris and Ben. They are the writers and directors of the award-winning indie hit film Nina Forever and the directors of the new BBC2 comedy series Out of her Mind. Chris and Ben dive deep into their filmmaking journey, how they started making films and earning money with them in school, and how one of their early short films was shortlisted for BAFTA. They also talk about working, writing and directing together as brothers, and discuss how they made their debut feature film Nina Forever, including raising the money, prepping for filming, working with actors, editing their own film, distribution, and many, many more things. This epic conversation is an absolute masterclass for indie filmmakers with tons of great, thoughtful, and inspiring advice. We hope you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as we did!
