This weeks we chat to experienced filmmaker and all round great guy Ross Boyask about making action films, creativity on set and his latest film and sequel, I am Vengeance: Retaliation starring Stu Bennett and Vinnie Jones .
Hosts Giles Alderson (Arthur & Merlin) and producer Robbie McKane dive deep with Ross into action film-making, how to prepare the scenes, working on set, getting performance from actors and creating a safe environment to do so.
We discuss the virtual Cannes Film Festival just gone as his international sales agency and production company Evolutionary Films he runs with John Adams and Diane Shorthouse, his career, the importance of understanding if not mastering editing as a director and having brilliant collaborators such as fight choreographer Tim Mann, Production designer Paul Bentley and DoP Simon Rowling to help him create his vision.
Ross Boyask’s directed feature film credits include: Left For Dead, Ten Dead Men, Warrioress, I Am Vengeance and his latest feature I Am Vengeance: Retaliation (Out on July 13th)
