Today we’re joined by Director and Composer Raine McCormack to talk classic Hammer horror, and share our mutual love for The Wicker Man as we discuss his film The Village in the Woods, out on-demand in the UK now.

Producer Robbie McKane catches up with Raine at the BFI LFF 2019 whilst Creator and host Giles Alderson gets some much deserved rest after his shoot on the upcoming Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot. Eager listeners may be in for a bonus episode later this week…

Robbie and Raine chat about staying motivated throughout a lengthly production, using music to help with the writing process, getting funding together for a feature film the Kevin Smith/Robert Rodriguez way.

We also talk film scores and sound design, as Raine has a background in music and in true John Carpenter fashion scored The Village in the Woods himself.
