If you’ve listened to this month’s episode, then you’ve heard the big news: this is, sadly, our last episode with Sophie. And if you haven’t listened to it, then spoiler alert. Sophie joined the show back in September 2015 when Paul took his leave, and she brought a whole new energy – and hemisphere – […]

We have a lot of rules on Hyphenates, all of them self-imposed. A lot of the time they make sense: we always make sure a new release from a past Filmmaker of the Month is given preference in the reviews, for instance. This makes sense if you, say, cover Sofia Coppola’s career around the release […]

Our Next Hyphenate C Robert Cargill

Our Next Hyphenate Neil Marshall

A big question kicking around Hi4H headquarters since we released our first episode in May 2010 has been this: who will be the first person to be both a guest and a filmmaker of the month? We’ve talked about a lot of very talented and very still-alive filmmakers on the show… and have tried to […]
