Creating a great atmosphere and getting stuck in working with actors Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby, Matthew Goode and Stephen Dillane. How large sets are no different to indies, just more mouths to feed. Some great and essential tips for when you are on set and his wonderful technique when ‘auditioning’ for the directors chair.

Ep 37 HOW TO GO FROM DIRECTING WEBSERIES TO DIRECTING SHERLOCK, WALLANDER & SKINS with director Ben Caron

We sit down with Bafta nominated The Crown director Ben Caron to discuss his film-making journey. Starting out making Music videos for Jay Z, then onto directing Sam King with Giles in it; and The Heist for Darren Brown before moving into TV dramas with Skins, Scott & Bailey. Working with the legend sir Kenneth Branagh and directing the last three episodes of Wallander before making the final episode of Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Rupert Graves. And most recently The bafta and emmy winning The Crown which he is now working on Series Three. So much insights and filmmaking knowledge it had to be a two parter. Part two is OUT on Friday.
Directors Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Christian James (Stalled) host.
