Short Films, Big Questions

Short Films, Big Questions


In each episode, filmmakers Will Liney and Ieuan Coombs focus on finding answers to the big questions in short filmmaking. They do so by discussing their own experiences making short films as well as prior research into the industry. Delving into the mistakes they have made, and what they wish they knew before starting out on their own short film journeys, they hope to find the answers so you don’t have to. A big thank you to Thomas Benjamin Cooper for the music on this podcast!

In this episode we interview the inspiring Amos Eretusi. Amos is the founder of The Kusp, an organisation that facilitates accessibility into the film and fashion industries for people from underrepresented backgrounds. They recently partnered with Somesuch and have been running some awesome talks with directors such as Oscar winning Aneil Karia.

It was fascinating to speak with Amos about his past business endeavours and how they’ve ultimately led him to The Kusp. We spoke about representation, networking for introverts, how best to brand yourself as a creative and much more. There are tonnes of golden nuggets of information in the episode and it was a joy to spend an hour with Amos. This is a great one for anyone who’s frustrated with how difficult it can be to break into the film industry.
