“Vesper” – the hustle behind making an epic sci-fi feature film with the writer-director duo Kristina Buozyte & Bruno Samper

Today, we welcome the writer-director duo Kristina Buozyte & Bruno Samper to the show! Together, they made the epic post-apocalyptic sci-fi feature film Vesper (2022), starring Raffiella Chapman, Eddie Marsan, Richard Brake, and many, many more. The film is about to come out in the UK on the 21st of October and it’s a stunning piece of cinema, so be sure to catch it on the biggest screen possible. You won’t regret it.

In their conversation with our hosts, Giles Alderson & Christian James, Kristina & Bruno talk about:

–       creating a dialogue with the audience

–       starting out and failing as a filmmaker

–       finding partners to collaborate with

–       making the first feature film

–       working as a directing-duo

–       how to survive in times when you’re not making movies

–       how they raised the money for Vesper

–       storyboarding

–       VFX vs practical effects

We had great fun chatting with them. Their hustle is really inspirational. So, sit back, relax and listen to our amazing chat with Kristina Buozyte & Bruno Samper.

VESPER is out soon!

Struggling to survive with her father after the collapse of Earth’s ecosystem, 13-year-old Vesper must use her wits, strength and bio-hacking abilities to fight for the future.
