The director of Wolves of War (2022) and – again – host of the show, Giles Alderson, welcomes his brilliant DOP Stuart Nicholas White and some of his wonderful cast including Matt Willis, Jackson Bews, Anastasia Martin and Rupert Graves to talk about how they made an indie war movie, which is also starring Ed Westwick, Sam Gittins, Éva Magyar, Max Themak, and many more.

Stuart chats about:

  • the colour, feel and look of the movie
  • the importance of a good first day on set
  • production design
  • the DOP-director relationship
  • being flexible with ideas

And the cast chats about:

  • their first day on set
  • getting into the characters
  • favourite moments
  • action scenes
  • the actor-director relationship
  • performance and editing
  • tips & tricks for actors

Blood, sweat and tears went into making this movie. We would really appreciate your support.

But for now, sit back, relax and listen to this week’s episode with the amazing Stuart Nicholas White, Matt Willis, Jackson Bews, Anastasia Martin and Rupert Graves.
