Once, Begin Again, Sing Street and Flora & Son director, writer, producer John Carney

On this weeks episode we are joined by legendary indie filmmaker John Carney who is the director, writer and producer behind some of our favourite films ‘Once’, ‘Begin Again’, ‘Sing Street’ and his latest and recently released on Apple TV+ feature ‘Flora & Son’.

Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir sat with John and had a chat about why it is hard to find a niche as a director, how he went from short films and music videos to making his first feature.

Writing characters, good and bad.

Why music helped him as a filmmaker.

We discuss if story is over rated?

And where the idea came from for Flora and Son.
