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.


The Filmmakers Podcast #176: How to Move from Commercials, Shorts and Docs to Indie Features with Ben Mole & Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar

Today we welcome back producer Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar as well as director Ben Mole to talk about their WW2 indie Behind the Line: Escape to Dunkirk. We dive into how writer/director Ben Mole came up with a fresh concept for a WW2 thriller, how Lucinda and rallied an art department meticulous enough to handle 1940s period accuracy – and how a simple coffee in a Colchester car park can lead to a great collaboration.Just like a classic genre flick, Behind the Line was shot back to back with this years earlier release We Go in at Dawn. Ben and Lucinda tell us how they did it without compromising on the high standards of a period war film.
