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.

Today, we thought of treating you again with amazing guests. That’s why in this week’s episode, we welcome actors Daniel Brühl & Albrecht Schuch as well as director Edward Berger to the show. Together, they made Netflix’s new film All Quiet on the Western Front (2022).If the name Daniel Brühl doesn’t ring a bell – which it should –, then here are some films he has been in: Good Bye Lenin! (2003), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Rush (2013), Captain America: Civil War (2016), and The Alienist (2018), only to name a few. You might also know Albrecht from epic films such as System Crasher (2019) or Berlin Alexanderplatz (2020), and Edward from Eden (2022).

In their conversation, Ed chats about:

  • finding a cinematic language with the DOP
  • getting through rough days on set
  • telling a story from your POV
  • adapting a novel
  • learnings from shooting battle scenes

While Daniel & Albrecht talk about…

  • what helps them get into the role
  • choosing the right projects
  • the importance of the film’s message
  • acting techniques
  • how directing influenced Daniel’s work as an actor

It’s needless to say that it has been an absolute blast chatting with these three legends. So what are you waiting for? Sit back, relax and listen to our epic chat with Daniel Brühl, Albrecht Schuch & Edward Berger. ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT is out on Netflix!
