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 #104: Dominic Brunt on How to Make Horror & Thriller Indie Films: Before Dawn, Bait, and Attack of the Adult Babies

Dominic Brunt joins us to chat acting, film-making and directing horror & thriller indie films. He chats going from Emmerdale, a TV soap to making horror movies via running a zombie short film festival which got him and his wife Joanne Mitchell talking about making their own movie which they did with Before Dawn. And how making his debut feature was the hardest thing he’s ever done. How he shot in his own house and rehearsed it but how hard it was to direct and star in Before Dawn and how he wouldn’t do it again. And how it got picked up at Fright Fest and selling the film to Metrodome.

What he took onto his 2nd feature Bait and working with a studio. He gives some great advice on how to deal with a studio or your investor who is hands on. How a big £6M project he was on was pulled two weeks before shooting and heartbreaking it was and he gives some great advice to filmmakers.
