How to Make a Zombie Comedy Drama starring Lupita Nyong’o & Josh Gad with ‘Little Monsters’ Director Abe Forsyth

What happens when you take a George A Romero zombie apocalypse and place the focus on a class of 6 year olds? Director of Little Monsters Abe Forsythe shares with us how he approaches comedy, satire and blending genres in his highly original style of film-making.

Robbie McKane sat down with Abe to talk about Abe’s influences, his debut feature Ned, based on Australian hero Ned Kelly, and his follow up feature Down Under, which covers on the bizarre landscape of modern polarised social politics with a brutal bite of black humour.
Finally we discuss Little Monsters, its inception, how it was financed and how Abe got his dream cast, including Josh Gad (Frozen) and Lupita Nyong’o )12 Years a Slave) in addition, we look at the challenges of filming with child actors in a zombie movie and striking the perfect tone between horror and comedy.

How to make more than one Indie Film with Ed Boase director of Trick or Treat with hosts Tori & Matthew Butler-Hart and Giles Alderson

Filmmaker Ed Boase drops in to the Union in Soho to talk how he makes his Indie films, how he raises the finance and his latest feature Trick or Treat!

Ed talks about making a short now after making features and how that differs.

How he got his start in film-making by getting James Bond legend Desmond Llewelyn to star in his first short film at 17 yrs old. And how Desmond was very generous and helping him become a filmmaker

He talks about top tips for a premiere. whether you should go to Film school or not and how important it is to help other filmmakers 

He chats making his first feature ‘Bloodied’ and how it felt being dumped by the distributions and not getting the release he wanted or hoped for. 

Not knowing what film to make after his first feature. After his second film he got depressed after projects kept falling apart. And how not to have all your eggs in one basket and have multiple projects at one time and how that can be better for all projects as well.

The upside and downside to being a Director for hire. Shooting a film at night and what to be aware of when shooting with no sleep. All this and much more.
