We are delighted to welcome the great Ben Wheatley to this week’s episode! He’s a writer and director, who has made films like Kill List (2011), High-Rise (2015), Free Fire (2016), Rebecca (2020) and many, many more.
Hosted by Giles Alderson and co-host Dom Lenoir, we chat about Ben’s latest indie feature, In the Earth (2021), which he shot during the pandemic. We dive deep into the making of the film. Ben discusses storyboarding, why he doesn’t like rehearsing, how he works with actors, pacing, coverage and performance, editing, writing, … He also talks about the difference between indie films and studio films, audience expectations, and how he chooses his projects.
It was a joy talking to Ben. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s indie filmmaking masterclass with Ben Wheatley.
