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 #181: Going from Shorts to Marvel movies. Directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck on making Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind & Captain Marvel.

This week Giles interviews writing and directing team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to discuss their impressive career and body of work from the indie scene to working with Marvel. Anna and Ryan first made an entrance with their indie hit Half Nelson, which picked up a best actor nominee for a little known actor named Ryan Gosling. Following on from that they’ve managed to make an intriguing combination of creative indies as well as studio hits, Giles asks them how they balanced both kinds of projects, what their approach is to directing as a pair and how they’ve changed their filmmaking process in transitioning from film to digital. We also chat about working within the unique Marvel Studios process, gauging the right audience for your film and knowing when to stop putting pressure on yourself as a director.
