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 #118: How to Make an Indie Film when You are Still in School!

Giles Alderson (The Dare) and producer/editor Robbie McKane sit down with the lovely and talented Shakespeare Sisters to chat how they made their micro budget indie films ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’ and ‘Much Ado’ without ever having made a film before. Now deep into the edit on their second film the girls regale us with their stories about how they roped their friends into making the film, how they chose to make the film last minute before Hilary went off to University and how they learned on te job by hiring great people around them. How they wrote the film between Anna’s school lessons and how they shot the movie in the school where so many of things in the film happened. How they managed to get a crew together and how they cast the movie and even ended up in it themselves. How they worked out the shots and how to direct on set in a very organic way. This should inspire any filmmakers out there that anyone can make a film even if you have no experience and make a cracking film in the process.
