It’s an honour to be featured and have our writer/director/editor Ivan Malekin as the Filmmaker Freedom guest blogger for November. Ivan discusses our improvised filmmaking technique, which links back to our Udemy course and how we shot Friends, Foes & Fireworks in a single night, without a script.

Big thanks to Rob Harvey for letting NPG utilise the Filmmaker Freedom blog to talk about and share our work. Be sure to sign up the the Filmmaker Freedom newsletters, as we believe they are one of the best our there for indie filmmakers to learn the craft and get informed.

First Festival Fun

NPG received news today that FF&F has been selected to screen in competition at Oz International Film Festival. This is yet another step forward for the film, which continues to prove that the set formula of filmmaking and indie film producing can sometimes be turned on it’s head and totally surprising.

For those in Melbourne, Australia who want to see the film, but missed the cinema run, don’t miss your chance of seeing it on a big screen at St Kilda’s Alex Theatre on the 28th of November 2018, where the film headlines night 6 of the festival from 7pm. Further details and ticket sales here.
