In this episode we have Director, Actor & Writer Josh Ruben on the show. He is the 2nd half of the directing duo Josh & Vince (Vince was our guest in Episode 61) and has done over 2,000 videos for College Humor.
We dive into what it’s like to be in front of and behind the camera but also discuss what it’s like to be in a directing duo.
Gareth Edwards who directed Godzilla, Rogue One and Monsters also did an episode of a BBC television series about Atilla The Hun. It has these epic battle scenes with thousands fighting and was made for ~$100,000. Used only 15 extras and then created the battle scenes in Adobe After Effects. In total it had approximately 300 visual effects shots and Gareth told himself he had to finish 1 shot a day. So there is a website called FXPHD where people from Hollywood teach visual effects courses – great resource.
