Reprobate Podcast 2.0: Chris Cooke Talks Indie Filmmaking

Our new regular video series begins with a lengthy chat with the director of the newly re-released One for the Road.

It’s been a while, but the Reprobate Podcast is back. Sort of. We’ve now made the jump to a shiny new video format – isn’t modern technology amazing? We’ll be publishing regular videos, from interviews to reviews to commentary and absolute nonsense – so essentially, all the things you love about The Reprobate already, in a spanking new audio-visual format.

We begin with a chat with old chum Chris Cooke, who talks in-depth about his film One for the Road, first released in 2003 and newly issued by Indicator on a Blu-ray that might be the most extra-packed you’ll ever see. We discuss the film, the thriving Nottingham indie movie scene of the turn of the century and the way DV allowed new talent to bypass the industry gatekeepers – at least for a little while. It’s a good hour of drinking and chatting.

Audio Only version:

And if you want more – and of course you do! – you can sign up as a supporter via Patreon or Buy Me A Coffee (or beer in our case, which seems only appropriate, given the film under discussion) to enjoy an extra 25 minutes with more about the movie and those involved and the Mayhem Film Festival that Chris is co-organiser of. You’ll find the links below and for this first edition, we’re opening it up to all Buy Me A Beer supporters, past and present, not just those with recurring membership. Each Reprobate video will come with extra members-only content – and of course, every penny helps keep this site going – so you really owe it to yourself to sign up.
