Ep 34 CASTING NAMED TALENT IN YOUR FILMS, MAKING SHORTS & LEARNING FROM DAVID FINCHER with Nev Pierce and Jim Page

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.

The excellent shorts are available to watch here: https://vimeo.com/nevillepierce

The 2nd Part of the in-depth look into A Landscape of Lies feature film which was the subject of a £19.6M tax fraud that has risen from the flames to be released 7 years later…
Unbeknownst to Director Paul Knight, who has proved his innocence in court, of the scam that would send the producers to jail for 20 years while he was trying to make his low budget feature has now re cut the film and prepared it for release.

Paul chats with Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Christian James (Fanged Up) about what happened during the trail, How he was blackballed by the industry and had to work under a different name.
