Today we look at three specific lessons filmmakers can learn from the missteps of the prequels and the re-mastered original trilogy. [Rebroadcast]
In honor of the release of “Rogue One”, we’re re-broadcasting the Star Wars special we first ran last December before the release of “The Force Awakens.” In this episode, we look at the making of the Prequels and the remastered Trilogy. I know the issues that Star Wars fans have had with these films have been discussed ad nauseam. But in this special, I look at three aspects of these films from which filmmakers can glean valuable insight into the making of their own films. We hear from Write Bros. partner and Dramatica co-creator Chris Huntley; Loyd Calomay of Red 5 Studios; film genre journalist and founder of Etheria Film Night Heidi Honeycut; and frequent show guest JD Cochran.
