James was last with us on Episode 21 of the Filmmakers Podcast, talking about his debut feature Hi-Lo Joe, he returns now having moved up significantly in budget to chat to Giles and Robbie about Knuckledust, an action thriller/caper with nods to Guy Ritchie, Quentin Tarantino and Nicolas Winding Refn.
We cover everything in this episode from sourcing finance and actors to world-building through script and storyboards. James also appears in the film in a supporting role, so offers some candid advice on how to direct yourself as an actor/director.
Knuckledust is an incredibly ambitious film for its budget level, and excels in its visual style. We examine just how James managed to pull it off from script to shoot to edit.
