Dominic Brunt joins us to chat acting, film-making and directing horror & thriller indie films. He chats going from acting in Emmerdale, A TV soap to directing horror movies via running a zombie short film festival which got him and his wife Joanne Mitchell talking about making their own movie which they did with Before Dawn. And how making his debit feature was the hardest thing he’s ever done. How he shot in his own house and rehearsed it but how hard it was to direct and star in Before Dawn and how he wouldn’t do it again. And how it got picked up at Fright Fest and selling the film to Metrodome.
What he took onto his 2nd feature Bait and working with a studio. He gives some great advice on how to deal with a studio or your investor who is hands on.
How a big £6M project he was on was pulled two weeks before shooting and heartbreaking it was and he give some great advice to film-makers.
