Neville Pierce and Jim Page chat about Nev’s newly released directed short films Bricks, Ghosted and Lock In, all starring well known names including Jason Flemyng, Alice Lowe and Ray Panthaki to name a few and collaborating with Jim who edited them all.
We discuss Nev’s writing for Empire Magazine (where he’s a contributing editor) and learning from watching David Fincher on set with his actors while interviewing him for Total Film and after interviewing Jack Nicholson thinking can it get better than this, decided to make the leap to being a filmmaker himself. Fincher read one of his scripts and liked it and that is surely worthy of making the switch.
We also discuss how important it is to have rapport with your editor who can be “a less pressured second director”, Getting named cast attached to your shorts and raising finance.
