TGB Episode 32: Bump in the Night! (Guest: Gareth Edwards)

October 22, 2010

Gareth Edwards - The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Alex (filling in for Jeremy) are joined by special guest Gareth Edwards, writer & director of Monsters (watch a trailer), to discuss their picks of the week, the newest Blu-Ray releases, trailers for Chris Morris' Four Lions and Anchor Bay's And Soon the Darkness, recommend the IFC doc A Decade Under the Influence and so much more! Our main topic was a Q&A with Gareth regarding his sci-fi film Monsters (hence the delay this week, due to scheduling). The guys talk about the limitations/freedoms of shooting films like Gareth did and go over some of the finer themes of his film.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Ha ha Gareth is clearly not impressed that he's having to take part in the whole of this podcast. Can't blame him, but as well have just interviewed him - seems odd to wake him at 1am and maximise the length of the call rather than get to the point.

Whattt? Nah, I know he was very tired, but he said he had a fun time, he was glad to be a part of it, I definitely know he was not unhappy to be on there.

Gareth = Super Inspiring Cool Dude.

Also I had to stop listening at the end cause you were talking a little too much about the ending of the movie for my tastes but thanks..

It doesn't sound as a big interview !!!! But it was fine ... I always respected Gareth and his work specially when I am working in the same atmosphere as CGI artist ... that is why I can understand his view ... It was funny when he mentioned the movie "Inception" and the way of making it ... not exactly what I wrote and explained almost 3 weeks ago ( September 29 in my blog ) but again there are some connection in the way of working and making the CGI for movies 😉 I agree 100% for his inspiration for the movies he mentioned specially for the movie " The Quiet Earth" and the feeling of the movie " Babel " ... And I will not hide my surprise for his humble answers and his honest replies .. I respect that ... and I can understand a Movie Maker who does not watch a lot of movies because he is busy making one ... With all these and with my respect for his work but I still have my critiques about his movie ... !!! For more information about what I thought about his movie you can check my blog :

Just saw your reply Alex, sorry I sent that message as I was listening and it was clear he got into the groove of it after a while. Just some of his first answers seemed very blunt as though he wasn't enjoying it - as though it was a marketing stunt he didn't want to be involved in, but it was by close, a very enjoyable podcast but still so many unanswered questions for this guy. 😉 Keep up the podcasts - love them.
