Joining us on this weeks podcast are ‘Femme’ directors and writers – Sam Freeman and Ng Choon Ping to talk about their BIFA winning short Femme which they then made a feature film starring George Mackay and Nathan Stewart Jarret.
Sam and Ping sat down with Giles Alderson to chat how they went from theatre directing and writing with no technical film knowledge to making their BIFA winning short film which led onto their feature of the same name Femme.
How they got their cast onboard, How BBC films’ Eva yates became involved and where the inspiration came from.
They discuss working as a writing and directing duo
short to feature and what that involved.
And what they took from directing their first feature.
Femme is screening in cinemas in the UK now.
