During World War I, a group of British miners are recruited to tunnel underneath no man’s land and set bombs from below the German front in hopes of breaking the deadly stalemate of the Battle of Messines.
JP talks about how the movie came about, how he co-wrote the film, how he got producers on board, and why connections in the film industry are vitally important. He discusses how he directs actors, how he collaborates with his DOP, and the importance of a good casting agent and a good crew. He also dives deep into VFX, how he did it and what you should know.
We had an inspiring conversation with tons of tips and tricks for you lovely filmmakers out there! An absolute masterclass! So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with JP Watts.
