Andy Wilton – The Atomic Filmmaker
Hi there, I’m Andy Wilton, the Atomic Filmmaker. I’m a professional independent filmmaker with over fifteen years of experience in the industry. I’ve created over one thousand films, from corporate promos, DVDs, music videos, documentaries, web content and a feature length mockumentary called “Behind the Scenes of TOTAL HELL”. Outside of film production, I tour providing various talks and workshops.
I’m called “The Atomic Filmmaker” because I devised a form of low budget filmmaking called “atomic filmmaking”, which this book teaches and I practise. You can find out more about it at my website: www.atomicfilmmaker.com
I’m very passionate about independent filmmaking, which is why I’ve written this book, and have established a filmmaking community called “The Production Posse”. As part of my role operating the Production Posse, I have interviewed key film creatives from Hollywood productions such as:
Blade Runner 2049, The Revenant, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Lego Movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Skyfall, The Blair Witch Project, Twin Peaks, War of the Worlds, Spiderman Homecoming, Dr Who, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, Selma, Thor Ragnorak, Baby Driver, Natural Born Killers, Beyond Skyline, Shrek, Gangs of New York, Grosse Point Blank, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Requiem for a Dream, Ghost in the Shell, The Perfect Weapon, Moana, Iron Man, Django Unchained, Batman Begins, Nixon, Megamind, Dunkirk, Hitman, The Medallion, Eagle vs Shark, The Vault, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zizzou, American Beauty, Poltergeist, Blue Velvet, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Hunt for the Wilderpeople and many, many more.
The content of “Hollywood Hates This Book” is based upon my experiences of filmmaking, research undertaken for the book, and from the lessons I’ve learned from fellow film professionals the world over.
“You have the potential to make a phenomenal film that will shake the world.
Go make it happen, there is absolutely nothing stopping you.”
