Joining us on this weeks podcast is Director, writer and producer Gerard Johnson who sits down with Giles Alderson (The Dare) and Dom Lenoir (Winter Ridge) to discuss how he directed the movie ‘Tony’ (2009), Hyena (2014) and his latest feature Muscle (2019).
We spoke about what it was like working with swingers, yes swingers! How Gerard creates his distinctive shooting styles and his workshops with actors to help set the scene. He mentioned how important it is to have close relationships on-set and what it means to have a good, strong bond with your DOP/Cinematographer to help create a unique pallet throughout his films. We also speak about how film-making is like going into battle, how he financed his movies, especially from France and why he decided to shoot ‘Muscle’ in two blocks.
So sit back, grab a cup of tea and enjoy this weeks episode of the ‘Filmmakers Podcast’.
