In Episode 37 of One Good Take I talk with Lisa Tuvalo, a writer/producer/director based in Maryland, USA. It’s not often I come across a filmmaker who started her career in science – but that’s Lisa. First science and music, then acting, and more recently producing and directing films. Having made a clutch of accomplished short films, she’s now developing a slate of feature films. I hope you find Lis's understated tenacity  and dry humour by turns inspiring and engaging!  Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)
Today on ONE GOOD TAKE, Alexandra Blue, an independent film and TV producer originally from Adelaide, Australia. After only a few minutes talking with her, it was clear to me Alex has a real gift for getting herself and her creative teams funded for short films, features and tv projects. Having worked for some established film companies in the UK she now has her own production company, Blue Bird Productions. How did she get there? I wanted to know. Short question to a long answer, perhaps, but here’s that take in under 40 minutes.   Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)

Today on ONE GOOD TAKE, Gina Lyons, an independent film and TV producer in London, UK.  Gina set out to be an actress, got tired of having doors slammed in her face and threw herself into producing – and has never looked back. We talk about her early beginnings, her process and the various shops she pitches her projects to. Tune in to the energy in her voice and I think you’ll find this session quite refreshing.  Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)

My guest today is Mike Moreno, actor and show host of the podcast Actor CEO. Mike grew up in LA. Still a teenager he found he a flair for stand-up. As a young man he went  on to pick up work on TV shows as an actor. Today he operates out of New York. As you’ll soon hear, Mike is big on encouraging actors and artists to go out there and make their own films and IP. This session is worth listening to simply for the passion and conviction Mike brings to his empowering message – if you’re an actor, stop waiting for the next call to self-tape, start creating your own chances.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)
That is the trailer for my session with Mike Moreno, actor and show host of the podcast Actor CEO. Mike has done the whole LA thing but now operates out of New York. He is big on encouraging actors and artists to go out there and make their own films and IP. His key message is simple but empowering: Don’t wait, do it yourself… There is no excuse – if you reach out to other ambitious and talented people and take action, even with very little money, you can create our own success… and you can start right now. Listen to the full episode from the file stacked above this one.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)
Hello and welcome to One Good Take. Today on the show – writer/director James Webber. I was particularly interested to talk to James, as we’ve both been writing, directing and producing short films for some time now, and had many a shot at getting a feature funded. James at least has managed to complete his first feature film and he’s now actively looking for distribution deals for it. Refreshingly he chose to make a very personal piece, a drama called Sorority. He financed it for around £100K, shot it in under 3 weeks and the trailer looks great. We talk about the story, the development, how he got cast and money together to make the film, and other related stuff. Here’s that take.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)

Today on the show - producer Jay Taylor and writer director John Jencks, joint founders of the London based film production and finance company Electric Shadow Company. Both guys struck me as adapting well to the fast changing landscape of the business and yet losing none of their passion for making original and thought-provoking entertainment. Enjoy this take. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)

Today on the show - composer Dominik Scherrer. Don’t know the name, you’ll almost certainly know his music. He’s written the scores to a great variety of films and TV dramas and has never been in greater demand. We open today’s episode discussing how he came to write the score to the superlative mini series, The Serpent,  what his process was and his overall experience on the show. We then go back in time to when Dominik first got into writing music to picture.  Enjoy this take.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)
Today on ONE GOOD TAKE – composer Dominik Scherrer. Don’t know the name, you’ll almost certainly know his music. He’s written the scores of great variety of films and TV dramas and has never been in greater demand. His score to the superlative mini series, The Serpent, is one of the most compellingly dark title sequences I’ve ever heard. We open today’s episode discussing how he came to write the score, what his process was and his overall experience on the show. We then go back in time to when Dominik first got into writing music to picture.  Listen to the rest of the conversation with Dominik when I publish later today on One Good Take.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)
My next guest is a man who at one time in his life was busting down doors and booking crack dealers in New Orleans.

In this episode of One Good Take I chat with cinematographer Seppe van Grieken. I first came across Seppe’s work in the superb TV series The Serpent, starring Tahar Rahim and Jenna Coleman, based on the crimes of serial killer, Charles Sobhraj. I was hugely impressed by the show and asked Seppe to talk to me about his part in creating this casually chaotic seventies world of backpackers in Thailand and Asia. This episode is a bit longer than usual, as we go into some technical stuff about choice of lenses and cameras, so I’ve split it into two in case you’re short of time.

In this episode of One Good Take I chat with writer/ director and head of development at Featuristic Films, James Kermack. I was interested to hear how James got started as a first-time indie director and how he used that first credit to go on to direct his second feature, a pulp crime movie set in a surreal London underworld called Knuckeldust. Appreciate it when you subscribe.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/penrakespodcasts)
