  1. crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    I don't think Nate is a scammer and I certainly don't think the people who buy into his vision are scammers. I think Nate is massively – perhaps pathologically – ambitious. And ambition is very seductive and powerful in this industry, amongst indie filmmakers who hold such big dreams but such...
  2. crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    In my time (scarcely over a decade, so pinch of salt here) doing film (and other media) I've come to have a really good eye for people who are going to succeed. They need a mixture of qualities – talent, sure, but they also have to be in the right place at the right time, have the right...
  3. How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    Congratulations Walter & Co!
  4. How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    @Nate North I've just spent 20 minutes going down memory lane, reading the old Deathworld mansion threads. I think your last post on Indietalk a decade ago said you'd tell us the story of what happened to the Deathworld mansion one day. Could that day be today?? For those who don't remember...
  5. How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    Man, this thread has brought back some memories of the combustible glory days of Indietalk. I remember Nate pretty well...
  6. wanted Looking for musicians to record bits of Holst's The Planets

    Hello everyone! I'm working on a podcast – apologies, it's not a film – for which I am seeking recordings of Holst's The Planets. I'm hoping to use bits of each of the seven movements across the series. If anyone has access to any recordings from The Planets which I could use (fully credited, of...
  7. suggestion What do you want to see?

    FWIW there are bags of filmmaking Discords. There are tonnes of filmmaking subreddits. There are literally thousands of filmmaking Facebook groups. Indietalk is its own thing, and I like that it's still an old fashioned forum. This has some advantages – the proliferation of spam content here is...
  8. suggestion What do you want to see?

    Sorry to hop in here without any good suggestions, but I think a relevant question is: what do you, IT, want Indietalk to be? What's important to you? It still provides a great resource for filmmakers all around the world, even though the last decade, I guess, has seen its market share steadily...
  9. link The Town That Didn't Stare

    My 6-part podcast documentary – 'The Town That Didn't Stare' – is now out in its entirety. It's been really fun to work on, a bit of a shift from what I found with indie filmmaking where I struggled to get anyone to watch or review my work. The podcast has been covered in most of the UK's major...

    Hi everyone! A couple of new episodes of this show since I last posted here. It's going pretty well; grateful for anyone who actually listens to it! https://open.spotify.com/episode/5KoIrhWPWePeUtvJuLouLp https://open.spotify.com/episode/6iYyEhY0pGvBTsQwfMXSB3
  11. link The Town That Didn't Stare

    New episode out this morning and it's a blockbuster (by my standards!) about Scientology and a small town in England... https://open.spotify.com/episode/0HLjLjGTJzqXXebel0uy6s Got a really positive review in today's Financial Times and have been included on Esquire's Best Podcast of 2020 so...
  12. link The Town That Didn't Stare

    Thanks Mara – I don't mean to be a drive-by participant here (especially when I'm predominantly coming to flog my projects!), I've just moved away from filmmaking of late and don't have much to offer. But I can definitely see myself doing more film stuff in the future and trying to be more present.
  13. link The Town That Didn't Stare

    (I was looking for the Screening Room but this was the closest I could find!). There are a lot of new members here these days who probably won't remember when I was an active member of this forum. As some will know, I've sort of segued out of filmmaking in the past 5 years, first into...
  14. Establishing Shots podcast

    Haha, absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about – and thank you for listening! To be honest, this is the first episode in a year (let's call it the start of season two). Have struggled a little bit for motivation whilst work has been busy, but hopefully will get some good interviews done in the...
  15. Establishing Shots podcast

    Hey everyone, just checking in with a new episode of my filmmaking podcast. This one's with Mark Jenkin the writer/director of a film called Bait. Bait's been a real hit here in the UK – it's a little Cornish film shot on a Bolex and with dubbed sound, so very unusual, but it's been acclaimed...
