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.


The Filmmakers Podcast #196: Upending the Rom-Com Genre with Filmmakers Kimberley and Amy Datnow on their feature Daddy Issues

Giles and regular co-host Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar chat to sister filmmakers Kimberley Datnow and Amy Datnow to discuss their quirky, playful romantic comedy Daddy Issues. Kim and Amy share how they both found themselves in the industry from different perspectives, how they decided to form a production company and how they wrote, financed and produced Daddy Issues, using a handful of crew, a group of UCB comedy actors and a reference book of rom-coms from the 90s and 00s.
