On this episode we chat working with kids, are storyboards useful, finding creative moments in a small space, getting coverage and how learning to edit is very useful as a director.
As a Producer it is sometimes a good thing to just do the ground work and let the director get on with it.
We chat distribution and Sales with Nick who talks Film Label and First Flights and how getting press and print promotion is difficult these days but if you fly/bring out a journalist for an on set visit they will likely do you a piece.
How Coz got Kubrik’s DoP Doug Milsome on board his latest feature and how amazing it is to see your film on set when it came from an idea you had one day.
