NEW WINTER RIDGE TRAILER https://vimeo.com/267988064

The festival director Natasha Marberger tells us that to get selected film entrants just need good stories.

Stars of Winter Ridge Hannah Waddingham and Michael McKell talk about getting into film for the right reasons their approach to scripts on what parts they get to play. How when acting try and lock in so you ignore the producing side of things.

Some of the really good directors have been actors. Least direction was Robert Zemekis

Producer and actor Andromeda Godfrey discusses finding someone you want to work with and make it happen. It can be a lonely business so find people you want to work with. Believe in your project and yourself.

“Producing is putting out fires. Or even better not letting the fire start in the first place”

We chat to the team behind the short film Stationary and how a good team that works together well is very important and the main issues of being tight for time. Know your project well and submit to the right festivals. Being realistic makes you have a better chance.

We talked to Little Shit director Richard Gorodecky and Philip Ilson, the London short film festival director who looks for films with a voice

Actor and director Simeon Willis is now writing a screenplay after being inspired by the podcast and how he directed a film for the 48hr film challenge.

Actor and producer Toby Osmond on how he does it “I’m just a doer. I like starting stuff”.

Actor of Winter Ridge Ian Pirie on making Bond film, Die Another Day, how director Lee Tamahori brought rawness and thought on his feet. Bringing indie film process to a huge budget. Working with Christopher Nolan on The Dark Night and getting advice on his frst ever film. A little know Scorsese piece called Gangs of New York.

Jon Campling talks about the difference between shooting an indie film and shooting Harry Potter . The huge machine behind a huge film and everything serves the actor. Indie film is a collaboration between everyone working on it.

Winter Ridge script editor (and screenwriter) Alistair Ager chats about the process of script writing and being a script editor. “You can be a fresh pair of eyes and you can spot things that the writer didn’t”. How he looks for character arcs or plot points that aren’t needed and too much dialogue.

And Dom Lenoir and Matt Hookings make a little appearance too.
