Talk To Me – Behind the Scenes

Breakout directing duo Danny & Michael Philippou discuss their transition from YouTube content creators to their first feature film, Talk To Me.

Having amassed over 6 million YouTube subscribers and 1.5 billion views, Danny & Michael Philippou – known on the platform as RackaRacka – reveal that their stardom online was by accident.

“We kinda fell into the online creating. We never set out to become YouTubers,” Michael Philippou explains. “We always wanted to make film and television… we just got swept up in the world of YouTube.”

In this behind-the-scenes video, the brothers discuss how their YouTube channel gave them the opportunity to experiment and learn, how they designed the ceramic hand in the film and why they prefer to do visual effects in-camera.

Talk To Me is released in cinemas 27 July, 2023.
