We welcome director Josh Greenbaum onto The Filmmakers Podcast to talk making R-rated comedy Strays starring Will Ferrell and Jamie Fox.
Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir had a chat with Josh all about making his doggy comedy and how he made it work.
Josh who has directed the brilliant Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar and TV including Fresh of the Boat and New Girl discusses working with animals creating an emotional pull with R rated comedy, working with big stars and why you need to root for the characters you create.
Josh also talks about:
How he pitched to Universal.
Creating moving-masters with the camera.
Working with Lord and Miller.
Storyboarding, shot lists and animatics.
And why you have to find people who feel the same way as you do.
