1 day ago
Filmmaker Joshua Overbay's first film, As It Is in Heaven, was a Critics' Pick in The New York Times and favorably reviewed on rogerebert.com. Luke & Jo is Josh's third film, and it continues the tradition of exploring big questions while telling an intimate, character-driven story that Josh started with his first film. Nathaniel Glass was one of the producers on As It Is in Heaven, and he returned as producer on Luke & Jo. This time around, he was also the director of photography, his first feature-length cinematography credit. The film has a memorable look, a testament to the work he did as a cinematographer and colorist. ... filmmaking is about telling truthful stories that change the world" - Nathaniel Glass Joshua and Nathaniel came on the podcast along with Andie Morgenlander, who was a co-writer, co-producer, costumer designer, and the lead actress in Luke & Jo. Having the three of them together allowed us to explore the filmmaking collaborative process in a really detailed way. Some of the things we discuss include What to do when conflict arises during a shoot How to shoot a film that allows for improvisation from the actors The importance of a good camera operator on a micro-budget shoot Whether creative people should be more like brick walls or rubber bands Why asking for and receiving forgiveness is so important but so difficult to do Whether the coincidences or serendipities have higher significance How to not be that guy at film festivals As I mention in the episode, Josh was one of the judges of our #KnowMonologues challenge that I did with actress Laura Cayouette.
