Filmmaker Toolkit Podcast: Looking For ‘Hamilton’ With Filmmaker Alex Horwitz (Episode 7)

20 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We are kicking off the 54th edition of the New York Film Festival with a behind the scenes look of three big premieres.

Director Alex Horwitz had no clue “Hamilton” would become a cultural phenomena when he started filming his friend Lin-Manuel Miranda writing hip hop tracks (originally for a concept album, not a musical) for the founding fathers. Horwitz came by the podcast to explain how he was inspired by Al Pacino’s “Looking for Richard” and became fascinated by Miranda’s search for the man Alexander Hamilton. Following him around as he wrote in Aaron Burr’s real life bedroom and did research at Valley Forge, Horwitz explained that his goal was to capture history through Miranda’s perspective.
