How to Make an Indie Feature when you are still in School with ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’s’ Hillary and Anna Shakespeare. Giles Alderson and Robbie McKane host

Giles Alderson (The Dare) and producer/editor Robbie McKane sit down with the lovely and talented Shakespeare Sisters to chat how they made their micro budget indie films ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’ and ‘Much Ado’ without ever having made a film before.

Now deep into the edit on their second film the girls regale us with their stories about how they roped their friends into making the film, how they chose to make the film last minute before Hilary went off to University and how they learned on te job by hiring great people around them.
How they wrote the film between Anna school lessons and how they shot the movie in the school where so many of things in the film happened.

How they managed to get a crew together and how they cast the movie and even ended up in it themselves. How they worked out the shots and how to direct on set in a very organic way.

This should inspire any filmmakers out there that anyone can make a film even if you have no experience and make a cracking film in the process.

Get you FREE Shotlister App by emailing

SPECIAL BONUS, Get your FREE Shot Lister App -Just email filmmakerspodcast@shotlister.com for your FREE copy! No catch

This week we are joined by the team behind brilliant indie film Lancaster Skies. Giles Alderson (The Dare, World of Darkness) sits down with director Callum Burn, Producer Andy Burn, Cinematographer Sam Parsons and actor Kris Saddler to chat how they made their World War II epic

We talk about their backgrounds, how they became filmmakers and their journey to Lancaster Skies

We chat how what it is like working with your father  and son on indie films. How Callum, Andy and Sam wrote the script together

We ask Andy what makes a good producer and why they shot Lancaster skies in 5 blocks and all for only £80k. How they built miniatures and the the inside of a spitfire to create the look they wanted .

How when they had problems the answers were always ‘make it simple’. And if you build your own sets and make your own world you have so much more control and can save money.

We talk to Sam about having very little money for lights. And how to use the budget in the best way you can to light the scene.

We chat how they raised the investment money to make the film through any which way they could. How the budget limited then but also made them think out of the box.

How it is important that all filmmakers have to step up to be a film business and make the film to sell and how you can actually make money .

We chat with Kris about his acting thoughts and how It took four years to make the film and over that time they built up the fan base on social media and held open days to bring people into and believing in the project 

And we find out that Callum has to redo all the sound with ADR and did the sound Foley in his bedroom which as you can imagine took forever

How to make Indie Films while holding down two jobs with screenwriter and director Stephanie McBain and Giles Alderson

Get tickets for the latest MAKE YOUR FILM event on July 9th here: bit.ly/2Zjma3s

This week Giles Alderson (The Dare, World of Darkness) is joined by screenwriter and director Stephanie McBain who talks about her journey into making her debut feature Roads, Trees and Honey Bees and how she raised the money on credit and worked two jobs while doing it.

We chat with the inspiring Stephanie about how she started off acting and moved to directing after switching courses and having to prep but not make a short as part of her course but after a chance conversation how her friend said she would produce it for her and she went out and actually made it.

We chat about how she writes about what she knows and her process behind it and how that led on to wanting to make her debut feature without waiting for something to happen. So she sacrificed nights out and worked two jobs while earning enough money to get it made and how it was so hard to write it after coming home from work

We talk casting and what should an actor do in a casting and why you might get cast or not .
How the first day on set was embarrassing. How an actor pulled out the day before and only filmed 5/8ths of a page on that first day

We talk how having a mentor is so important in the film business and how she got distribution for the film and got it out for people to see.
And how she has made her second feature A Kiss on Candy Kane Lane on two weeks notice and even worked her job during the filming the schedule.

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

How to Make a Studio Indie Movie Pt 1 with Jack Binder producer of Oscar Nominated First Reformed, Reign Over Me and The Upside of Anger with Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir

Experienced Hollywood producer Jack Binder has not only worked with some of Hollywood’s A-listers including Ben Affleck, Adam Sandler and Kevin Costner but he has also produced studio movies as well as the studio indie and the outright indiefilm. His latest film First Reformed staring Ethan Hawke was Oscar Nominated this year for best screenplay!

Starting out as an assistant and ended up creative director and working with Oscar winning producer Michael Phillips (The Sting)

How as a producer you can work with your brother who is the director.

What to do when the shit hits the fan on set and the best way to deal with it.

We talk about the difference between producing a studio movie to an indie film and what you can go about to make it work for you.

Working with stars like Kevin Costner and Ben Affleck, who they act on set and how you should too. We ask him is there a difference between setting up a film in the U.K. to the US?

And how important it is your banking production account is set up before the money comes in.
