Though only his debut feature film, director Jeremy Lovering took something of a bold and unique approach to psychological thriller In Fear, implementing a technique whereby he refused to give his actors a script, nor inform them of any plot points, surprising them with material as they were filming. It’s this very approach which makes In Fear so genuinely terrifying – and we had the opportunity to speak to Lovering all about it.
Lovering explains why he used this technique in great depth, and what he felt it brought to proceedings. He also speaks about his move from TV into film, and what he feels he has learnt as a filmmaker, and how he sees directing as a craft, rather than an art.
In Fear is in cinemas on November 15 and our review can be found here.
