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 #133: The Aeronauts, Peaky Blinders & Wild Rose director Tom Harper joins Giles Alderson, Dom Lenoir and Robbie McKane to talk how to make films & TV

Director Tom Harper drops by Cameo Recording Studios to chat with Giles Alderson (The Dare), Dom Lenoir (Winter Ridge) and producer/editor Robbie McKane to talk about how he makes his films including ‘Scouting Book For Boys’, ‘Woman in Black 2’, ‘War Book’, ‘Wild Rose’ & ‘The Aeronauts’ which is OUT NOW in cinemas.

We talk about he made his start in film-making by making tea in a post house, making short films and his attitude to networking and pitching to TV and film bodies and working with wonderful actors such as Jessie Buckley and Felicity Jones.

We talk about BAFTA’s and how it might not make a difference to your career, working with your best mates, building a career and fox wrangling. The golden moment before you show your film to the world, working with actors and how you will always find people who will hate your work.
