This week we've got the wonderful director Meera Menon (Farah Goes BangEquity, GLOW, Halt and Catch Fire) to discuss Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Meera touches upon how well the film works despite the small budget and how that inspires her to create a monster movie someday. She discusses what it's like to direct using visual effects on The Magicians, and how a lot of it is guess work. Meera also speaks to the difficulties and delights of working with non-actors, the moral obligation of the director, and approaching filmmaking like a journalist.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch Monsters.

Also check out Meera's latest film Equity.

With April Wolfe and Meera Menon
