This week it is all about the Mongoose!! A talking one, called Gef no less as we are joined by director, writer and exec producer Adam Sigal as he discusses making Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose!!

He joins Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir on trial (well, in a court room) to discuss his film-making process.

Adam chats about:

Why film in Harrogate (Giles’ home town).

Getting Simon Pegg attached. 

Raising Finance.

The difference between shooting in the US and the UK. 

His unique way of learning to write scripts. 

Exec’ing and helping other filmmakers. 

Why he doesn’t do pitch decks. 

And red flags to notice when speaking with investors.
