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.

Guests will come on and chat about their film making experiences from directors, writers, producers, screenwriters, actors, cinematographers and distributors.

Today, we have two exceptional first-time filmmakers who attached Jennifer Lawrence & Brian Tyree Henry to their script, got A24 on board and shot a wonderful little feature film called Causeway (2022) in only a few months.
