How to go from a VFX Compositor to making two independent Sci-Fi Features & a Disney TV Series with director Hasraf ‘Haz’ Dulull

The wonderful and highly fun director, writer and VFX superstar Hasraf ‘Haz’ Dulull sat down with Giles Alderson and Robbie McKane to chat how he went from VFX work on The Dark Knight to making his own films ‘The Beyond’ and ‘2036 Origin Unknown’ and his TV show Fast Layne.

We chat about his star in video games making cut scene graphics in an autonomous self-starting role. How he moved into the VFX film industry – specialised in compositing (combining different VFX elements into the final film) and pioneered the use of Shake and Combustible applications

How he worked on studio films culmulating in The Dark Knight for Christopher Nolan where a custom version of Shake was used to accommodate the 5K IMAX film

How he worked on commercials in VFX – moved up the rungs to lead compositor then VFX supervisor and As VFX supervisor was able to get a good perspective of production – began to work as a ‘shadow director’ on some CG sequences in documentary work.

We discuss how he began working on short films and building his own team where he gathered attention for his shorts in Cannes, developed relationships with Paramount and Fox for screenwriting and developing projects.

How he put is own money he had planned to buy a house on the line for his first feature – The Beyond, based on his successful short Project Cronos.

Used caché from The Beyond to push his next feature ‘2036 Origin Unknown’ over the line and then used both of those features to pitch for Fast Layne a VFX heavy Disney TV series

Dominic Brunt on How to Make Horror & Thriller Indie Films: Before Dawn, Bait, and Attack of the Adult Babies with Giles Alderson & Christian James

Dominic Brunt joins us to chat acting, film-making and directing horror & thriller indie films. He chats going from acting in Emmerdale, A TV soap to directing horror movies via running a zombie short film festival which got him and his wife Joanne Mitchell talking about making their own movie which they did with Before Dawn. And how making his debit feature was the hardest thing he’s ever done. How he shot in his own house and rehearsed it but how hard it was to direct and star in Before Dawn and how he wouldn’t do it again. And how it got picked up at Fright Fest and selling the film to Metrodome.

What he took onto his 2nd feature Bait and working with a studio. He gives some great advice on how to deal with a studio or your investor who is hands on.
How a big £6M project he was on was pulled two weeks before shooting and heartbreaking it was and he give some great advice to film-makers.

How to Make a Period Drama Feature with James Kent director of ‘The Aftermath’ starring Keira Knightley and Alexander Skarsgard

Giles Alderson (The Dare) sits down with Film and TV director James Kent to chat his feature films Testament of Youth and The Aftermath

We start by talking about DirectorsUK and how important and useful it is to filmmakers https://directors.uk.com/

How the freedom in Documentary film-making that you can use in feature film or TV work as a director and when your in edit suite it is just you and the editor and you need to have got your coverage and material on set. With docs there is not often a story until you are in the edit

Making the leap from docs to TV and features. Working with actors. Respecting them. Working with young up and coming acting talent. And moving into directing features and how important rehearsal time is.

Making period drama The Aftermath. And how the actors have transformed into something else when in costume. A different character and they can come with preconceived ideas. Rehearsal can help over come this. And he gives some great Directing tips to work with actors on set.

Working with Will Smith on a Documentary. And watching Darren Aronofsky working was a education.

And shooting AMERICAN TV and the difference between U.K. TV.

Working with A list stars on The Aftermath with Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke and Alexander Skarsgard and feeling intimidated and shooting sex scenes

We chat Mother Father Son starring Billy Howle and Richard Gere which is OUT NOW on BBC

How to make a road trip indie comedy feature with Eaten by Lions director and co-writer Jason Wingard with Giles Alderson

Jason Wingard sits down for a chat with Giles Alderson about his latest feature film Eaten by Lions.

He chats going from shorts and winning short film festivals like Virgin Media shorts and making more films from the prize money.

Then went onto make his debut feature In Another Life set in the Calais jungle while he waited for his other feature to happen . During this time he went out and learnt how to raise money and how to make a film from the ground up.

We discuss how he used his writing / directing fee from Eaten by Lions to finance his debut feature In Another Life. How he shots in the Calais jungle and recreated a set in Warrington to match. We discuss how it’s a privilege to make a film but you have to make sure your script is good enough and pay for script analysis to make it so.

How you should understand the finance process and how investors can make their money back. Having a one pager as well as full pack for your project and that the best people in the film industry have nothing to prove

How to make a road trip movie and working with actors on set and good techniques to do this .

Dealing with reviews and how filmmaking is like a Juggernaut.ONCE IT’S GOING It keeps rolling,

Scott Mann on Directing ‘Final Score’ with Dave Bautista & Pierce Brosnan and working with and directing Robert DeNiro on Heist

Giles Alderson sits down for a natter with director and producer Scott Mann to chat indie film-making working in the studio film system and dealing with on set nerves.

Filming in Bulgaria with The Tournament and the great film crews they have there.

We talk how he made a teaser trailer for the Tournament. Got offered a mil as soon as he got to Cannes to get it made but no guarantee he would direct it so he turned it down. People suddenly wanted the project but he wanted to direct. And even with offers on the table It still took two years and having to sign on the dole while he tried to get it made.

Then trying to close sales on the Tournament and getting Ving Rhames to agree to star in the film after having to wade into the sea in Cannes to get a better reception on his phone whilst doing so. Loosing finance during prep and not being able to leave the hotel as bills not paid!! And getting cash flow on a sheet of yellow paper.

We discuss getting star struck and dealing with the fear on set with actors and how Hugging Robert DeNiro changed his mindset

Working with Harvey Weinstein after The Tournament and possibly making a remake of Seven Samurai

The wonderful tale of when he talked to Robert DeNiro via Skype and going on to work on the script and directing Robert on set of Heist.

Making action movie Final Score and how it came together so quickly

Having no extras in the stadium where they filmed. Having a high above the line and a low below the line. Creating and setting up the action in films. Storyboarding for himself and making a film when you know the set is going to be torn down.
