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 #234: From Indie Film to TV Producing for HBO with Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto

Today on the show, Giles Alderson and co-host Dom Lenoir welcome producer Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto. His credits include Last Passenger (2013), City of Tiny Lights (2016), starring Oscar-nominee Riz Ahmed, The Pale Horse (2020), and the new Channel 4 TV Mini-Series Deceit (2021) with Niamh Algar, Eddie Marsan, Nathaniel Martello-White, and many more. Ado dives deep into his journey from Indie Film to TV producing. He talks about how Deceit came about, what to consider when making a true-crime drama, and what it was like to produce a TV show during the pandemic. He also discusses his process when starting a new project as a TV producer as well as his process of finding a director, what it’s like to work for HBO, and the difference between producing in the UK and the US. We met Ado as an Indie Film Producer about two years ago at our MakeYourFilm Event and it’s amazing what he has achieved since then. He is a true inspiration. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s masterclass on producing with Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto.
