Listen to the latest podcast of the Directors UK podcast!
As part of our In Conversation season, James Hawes sat down with fellow director Jessica Hobbs to discuss the making of his theatrical feature debut One Life.
James and Jessica had a brilliant deep dive into James’ approach to his craft, discussing shooting on location in Prague, collaborating with key creatives to create a particular visual tone and establish an authentic period setting, and preparing the cast and crew for filming some of the film’s most sensitive scenes. James also touched on the responsibility he felt when showing the final edit to Sir Nicholas Winton’s family, and the complexities of representing real people on screen.
