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


The Filmmakers Podcast #113: How to make FIVE feature films in 5 years with writer, producer and director Tom Paton

Giles Alderson (The Dare, World of Darkness) sits down with director, writer and producer Tom Paton to chat how he made his films, Pandorica, Redwood, Black Site, Stairs and G-Loc and how important it is to have a business head on as a filmmaker. How he went from a Club Rep in Cyprus to becoming a Filmmaker and how he started with no real knowledge of cameras or production. How he self taught himself film-making and learnt to edit and understand VFX and graphics because he has no choice. How he didn’t want to make a short but a feature first and how he raised finance using his background in selling to secure investment. We discuss what actors look for in a director – and vice versa and producing your own work – and find good collaborators. And they delve into his screenwriting process – from script to shoot. PLUS loads of advice for filmmakers new and old
