Today, Giles Alderson & Dom Lenoir welcome director/producer/actor Baltasar Kormákur to the show. He has made films such as Contraband (2012), 2 Guns (2013), Everest (2015) and Beast (2022) and has worked with star-actors such as Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Jason Clarke and Idris Elba to name a few.
He sits down with our hosts to chat about:
- being on set
- the difficulties of shooting on location
- making and starring in his debut feature film
- how he put his own money into making his debut
- navigating between Hollywood and indie films
- directing tips
- his learnings over the years
- working with star actors like Denzel Washington
- shooting with a CGI lion vs a real lion
- working in the studio system
Baltasar was very honest about his journey. We know you’ll love this. So sit back, relax and listen to this week’s episode with the rather fantastic Baltasar Kormákur.
… and for fans of the “Prey”-episode outro, do stick around until the end…
BEAST is out now!
A father and his two teenage daughters find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the Savanna has but one apex predator.
