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 #214: How to Make your Debut Feature Film – Jennifer Sheridan on directing Rose: A Love Story

We are delighted to have director and editor Jennifer Sheridan on this weeks episode. Hosted by Giles Alderson and co-host Andrew Rodger, we sit down and chat about her debut feature film Rose: A Love Story. We talk about how she went from making award-winning short films such as ‘Rocket’, ‘Acoustic Kitty’ and ‘Set Adrift’, to making her directorial debut ‘Rose’. She mentions how she started from editing commercials, to editing shorts. Jennifer talks about how she was inspired by a teacher, how she taught herself to edit and a great reason why you should make shorts or films. She also discussed how restrictions are good in film-making and the importance of doing your homework. Why you shouldn’t have too many expectations, how she got her agent and dealing with a million decisions.

The British film premiered at last year’s BFI London Film Festival and received strong reviews. It was also nominated for the BIFA Raindance Discovery Award. Sophie Rundle will next be seen in the sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders, which is currently filming. Most recently, Sophie was seen alongside George Clooney in his recent sci fi feature The Midnight Sky. Jennifer is currently filming a big secret TV series and her latest TV directing work The Snow Spider is on I-Player now. ROSE: A LOVE STORY is released on the following platforms; Sky, iTunes, Amazon Prime, Google, Xbox, TalkTalk, Rakuten and BT.
