In this episode, we welcome to the podcast screenwriter Jed Shepherd to discuss streaming horror hit Host, the Shudder exclusive that’s been taking the internet by storm.
Jed chats with Giles and screenwriter Jonny Grant on his writing process, collaboration with director Rob Savage and how they made their highly acclaimed shorts Absence, Dawn of the Deaf and Salt.
We also talk working with Sam Raimi, shining the light on forgotten horror gems and how to make a film entirely on zoom with a full cast, stunts and VFX – all whilst hiding key plot twists from the main actors. If you’ve been looking for that jolt of lockdown inspiration, this is it.
