Today on The Filmmaker’s Podcast, Giles Alderson and his co-host Dom Lenoir chat with Aneil Karia, the writer and director of Surge starring Ben Whishaw, which premiered at the World Competition at Sundance Film Festival 2020.
They dive deep into how Aneil turned his short Beat into an award-winning feature. He discusses how they developed the script, how the thematic heart of the film drove the writing process, how they raised the money and what it was like to work with Ben Whishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer; Skyfall).
Aneil also talks about his inspiring filmmaking journey. What it’s like to be at the beginning of your career. That it’s also necessary to learn what you don’t want to do. And why it’s important to stay true to yourself along the way.
