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. They also shoot the breeze about their new films, The Dare, World of Darkness, Fanged Up, & Retribution too.


The Filmmakers Podcast #91: How to Make a hit Documentary, with Bros: After the Screaming Stops director Joe Pearlman

This week we chat to ace documentary filmmaker Joe Pearlman about how he makes his docs. How he started in the business and worked at well known Fulwell 73 Production company, got his foot in the door and started making indie docs. Living with Mo Farah the Olympic gold winning Marathon runner whilst he made the documentary on him. How he was asked to make the Bros doc and his original opinion. We ask if the doc was staged or is it all real? How you can make a doc about twins from an 80’s boy band and hit the zeitgeist in the U.K. and have a very successful and incredibly talked about feature film… Why the third member of Bros wasn’t in the doc or even talked about. How to actually shoot a doc, where to put cameras and who shoots what.how to film the interviews themselves. How to work with the interviewees and what is a great way to edit the films
