The Filmmakers Podcast #116: How to Make a Sci-Fi Time Travel Movie in TWO Days with director and writer Grant Pichla and Giles Alderson

Grant Pichla joins Giles Alderson to chat how he made his feature film Making Time in TWO DAYS! Giles and Grant had a good natter on film-making and the joys and sacrifices we make to make films. We talk about Grant’s background, how he got into filmmaking and his first feature film ‘Niners’. How making a feature film whilst having a job and renovating a house is a tough thing to do but so rewarding at the same time. And how Grant used the renovation as production design in the film.

How he devised a way to shoot ‘Making Time’ his feature film in two days – via camera setups, lighting etc. How he dealt with major problems on set, even though it was two days spreadd out over 7 months, dealing with extreme weather conditions, loosing cast and crew. And how he had to work against the clock to overcome the odds.
