Episode 078

It’s the final show from the 2017 Whistler Film Festival and today it’s all about first time filmmakers!

First, actor Michael Maize (Gotham, Happy!) talks about The Story of A Girl, which the directorial debut of actress Kyra Sedgwick.

Then screenwriter Ramona Barckert and producer Brian Robertson talk about Ordinary Days, a film in three acts, each of which is helmed by a different director. How did that affect the overall outcome of the film?

Jonathan Baker is “a personality who can act” as well as a director. He recently directed his first feature film Inconceivable, in which he also co-stars opposite Nicholas Cage. But before he made that, he interviewed various directors including John Badham, Jodie Foster and Taylor Hackford, about the perils of being a first-time filmmaker. The result is the documentary Becoming Iconic, which had its World Premiere at the festival.
