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.
