How to Make Hollywood movies with Todd Garner (Con Air, Knight and Day, Mortal Kombat) and hosts Giles Alderson and Ian Sharp

This week Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Ian Sharp (The Marker) had a natter with very well established movie producer Todd Garner about the state of the film industry, how you can get movies made and why now is the best time to get your projects ready!

Todd Garner, the Hollywood veteran has overseen 170 films (and counting) who’s credits include xXx, Are We There Yet, Next, 13 Going on 30, Anger Management, The Fog, The Sorcerers Apprentice, Scouts Guide to the Apocalypse, Haunt, HellBoy, Tag and Black Hawk Down to name a few, talks about the movie business today, how he got started, what his ambitions are within cinemas and how they need to adapt.

Giles and Ian also talk to Todd about how now is the best time to write your projects and to really know what kind of movie you want to make. How you can use your imagination and how to find stories. How we will come through this pandemic and how even through wars and depressions we have always craved stories.

We also go into details about how Todd puts a project together from indie films to studio movies and he gives some brilliant advice for actors, producers, screenwriters and directors.
