Filmmaker Deborah Haywood joins Giles Alderson (The Dare) and guest host Julian Kostov (Another Mothers Son) to chat about her brilliant debut feature film Pin Cushion and how making shorts was the best way to prep for the mammoth task of making a feature.
We chat about the new Martson’s Beer Town Film Festival in Burton and we talk in-depth about going from shorts to feature films and how it can really be a calling card. From making her first short Lady Margaret with Michael Sorcha to winning awards and getting noticed for her short film Sis and ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ for Rankin presents. Being involved with i-features and the BFI and how important it is to stick to your gut when writing your feature films.
We also chat about her screenwriting process, being strong on set and bold with casting, being bullied and feeling vulnerable, leading on set but being scared, and building relationships on set with the crew.
And importantly, Directing with love and having the right collaborative team and producer is so key.
Oh and actor Robert Maaser (M.I.5, The Dare) makes a surprise appearance.
