Ep 86 How to make an indie horror Sci-Fi with Await Further Instructions director Johnny Kevorkian and producer Jack Tarling

This week Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Christian James (Fanged Up) chat to  director Johnny Kevorkian (The Disappeared) & producer (God’s Own Country) Jack Tarling about creating creatures, reversing footage and camera tricks, marketing your film, keeping audiences engaged when the movie is set in one location and their new sci-fi horror Await Further Instructions.

Johnny Kevorkian, shooting anything he could, and later refining his craft studying film at University. After making a series of ambitious shorts, he directed, cowrote and co-produced his debut Horror feature ‘The Disappeared’ which won him awards and critical acclaim.

 Jack Tarling has produced BAFTA nominated God’s Own Country, London’s Finest and Await Further Instructions. He runs Shudder Films

Await Further Instructions:  It’s Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly – an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously:’Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions’. As the television exerts an evermore sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.

Ep 85 How to Produce Indie Films and Finance Films with Ian Sharp and hosts Giles Alderson & Andrew Rodger

Our hosts sit down with indie producer Ian Sharp who talks about making indie thriller The Marker starring John Hannah, how he started in the business, his first feature film Kick Off and how he now finances films with his company Sharp House.

Ian grew up in Scunthorpe with Van Damme and De Niro movies for inspiration. After training at the National Youth Theatre, his passion for film led him to London and a scholarship at the Arts Educational Schools. He founded Achilles Entertainments with Rebecca Sharp in 2009, merging entrepreneurial experiences with their passion for film and co-founded Sharp House in 2016. Ian’s third feature, The Marker, was supported and co-financed by Creative England. Other film credits include Pleasure Island, theatrically released in the UK by Metrodome and KickOff, distributed by Peccadillo Pictures.
