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.

Ep 95 How to Make a No-Budget Thriller and stay at No.1 in the Amazon charts for 6 Weeks with The Redeeming’s director Brian Barnes and hosts Giles Alderson & Andrew Rodger

Director Brian Barnes sits down with Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Andrew Rodger (To Dream) to talk about his debut feature film The Redeeming which became a No.1 selling film on amazon for 6 weeks!

We talk how he made his indie film, what happened on set. How he had learnt so much from making corporate films and short films that prepared him for making The Redeeming.

We discuss how being an editor made a huge difference not only in shooting but in the post production stage as well.

How test screenings are a huge advantage to help make your film better and how marketing should be about the film and not the people who made it.

And how he gave batman Begins director Christopher Nolan his first job in film-making.

Brian Barnes

Has directed 25 short films, including the 5 times award-winning The Urge, which won a Best Screenplay award and also a Best Film Prize under jury president Timothy Burrill . The Urge was the 8th most watched horror film on IndieFlix for well over a year from its launch in January 2014

Ep 94 How Nathan VonMinden raised finance & got distribution for his indie film by cold calling and made his feature The Challenger Disaster

Giles Alderson sits down with director and writer Nathan VonMinden to chat how he made his indie film The Challenger Disaster by raising finance and getting distribution himself .

They chat about how scary and wonderful it is to see your film on a big screen and how you can’t hide the flaws when it’s up there for all to see.

There are no set rules for filmmakers, you find your own path but you have to become a business person and how he phoned around and cold called people to raise the finance to make and distribute the film.

How shooting dialogue scenes is hard and you are never as good as your dailies or as bad as your first cut and how it takes a team to make a film.

This is a truly inspirational talk about how you can make your indie film happen and all props to Nathan for doing so.
