Director, screenwriter, cinematographer, podcaster and great guy Mike Pecci joins Giles Alderson on the Filmmakers Podcast this week to shoot he breeze about filmmaking.

They talk Mike’s award winning short film 12KM which Mike made after cracking his head open while ice skating on a date and having a vision. We talk about making commercials, surviving in the business and a generally brilliant chat about film making in general and his Podcast In Love With the Process which is about filmmaking (and food)

Mike Pecci

With over 18 years of experience, Mike has cemented a name for himself not only as a photographer and music video director, but as an abstractly edgy filmmaker who is undeniably devoted to the art of storytelling. His characters are the faces of his work – passionate, emotional, and distorted stories are the basis for some of Mike’s most well-received films.
