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 #240: Sound of Violence Writer & Director Alex Noyer talks going from Short to Feature, Clubhouse Horror Movies and fuding & making a hit directorial debut.

On today’s show, Giles Alderson and co-host Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar sit down with Alex Noyer, the writer and director of Sound of Violence, which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival in 2021. Alex dives deep into Clubhouse of Horror, what the room is about, what it’s like to be a judge on the latest competition, and not just what you need to do to get your horror short script financed, but also how to make an ace short. Coming from documentaries, he discusses how he made his first narrative short Conducter (2018), the importance of a one-line pitch, and how he turned his short into a feature. Giles, Lucinda and Alex also talk about the importance of mental health on set, how to deal with overtime, why nerves are good, directing techniques, distribution, and why you need a good lawyer. It was an absolute pleasure to chat with Alex. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with Alex Noyer.
