Brian Padian: Surfing Magical Thinking While Shooting on Super 16mm (Episode 3)
< 1 day ago
Mentorless Podcast offers in-depth interviews with visual storytellers about a particular project that has asked them to stretch their creativity beyond what they could have imagined.
Together we look at the steps they took from the moment they had an idea until the moment they released their project into the world.
The interviews are meant to leave you with practical tips and lessons from filmmakers who’ve done it before and are willing to share their story with their glorious and less glorious moments.
For this third episode I talked with American filmmaker/producer Brian Padian. Together we deconstruct and analyse how Brian went on making his first feature film, Black Sea, shot on nothing less than Super 16 for $50,000. But what makes this episode extra-special is the intervention of Magical Thinking, this phenomenon that always occur when you create, and can prove at times to be your best-friend or your worse enemy.
While we cover all the technicals and strategical decisions Brian took to make Black Sea, we also keep an eye on his Magical Thinking level each step of the way. And if you’re not sure what I mean by that, just listen and you‘ll understand.
