How to make a Netflix Hit with Blood Red Sky producer Benjamin Munz

Joining the show today is the producer of Blood Red Sky (2021), the most popular non-English speaking film on Netflix, Benjamin Munz. He is also known for films such as Polar (2019), Stung (2015), and the short film The Night Father Christmas Died, which was nominated for a Student Oscars.

Ben talks with our hosts Giles Alderson & Tobias Vees all about his filmmaking journey: How he started out in Germany where hardly anyone was interested in making films, how he slowly transitioned into paid jobs, and how he then pre-sold his feature film Stung for a million at AFM. He also discusses what makes a great producer, what he looks for in a director or screenwriter, and the ups and downs of being a producer. And of course, he talks all about his collaboration with Netflix.

This is the inspiring story of a film fan who started out in a comic bookstore and went on to produce one of Netflix’s most successful films. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with Benjamin Munz.
