1.What made you
want to be a director?
For me, it wasn’t like I suddenly had an epiphany.
It was something that kind of naturally presented itself to me from my acting
background and I think I have the right mind set for it, so it fit right when it
2.What does the term ” indie” mean to you?
means that you are independent from a major film studio looking over your
shoulder and having say over your movie.
Indie = Freedom
think the internet gives too many people way too much freedom?
A hell of
a lot more good comes from freedom than bad, so you won’t hear me complaining
about it too often.
4.Do you think when someone blames the budget as to
why a film is not that well received, is fair, or that they are looking for a
Well, has there ever been a big budget movie in the history of
cinema that hasn’t been well received? Has there ever been a low budget movie in
the history of cinema that has been well received?
That answers that.
5.Do you think females get a fair shake in indie films and the industry
I think they have it worse today than ever. Honestly, I have
a hard time remembering actresses apart from each other nowadays because they
all look the same and they’re all seem to be playing the same parts. Diversity
in female roles in the industry as a whole seems very lacking to me. It’s like
every character has to be young, athletic, busty. . . I mean c’mon, there are
other women in the world, aren’t there?
6.What was the last film beside
your own, that blew you away?
The Secret in Their Eyes – They don’t make
movies like this very often anymore. Amazing!
7.Do you think indie films
have too much freedom and that some films go way too far in its content and
Those are 2 different questions.
Too much freedom?
Do some movies go too far? For me personally, Yes. But, If I
don’t like it, I can get up and walk out. I don’t have to watch it.
everyone has a point that they feel is too far. But what is too far for one
person is not too far for another.
It’s not up to me to decide for others
what is going too far for them. Just like it’s not up to anyone else to decide
what is going too far, for me.
8.How would you deal with an actor or
actress who who was not fully behind the vision and script?
It depends on
the situation. If the actor or actress simply disagrees with me but they’re
still willing to give me 100 percent and will give me what I’m looking for,
there shouldn’t be a problem. However if they decided to become a detriment to
the set, I’d replace them.
9.Do you think youtube directors are a insult
to people who went to school and learned the trade?
Absolutely not. You
automatically learn the trade, whether you like it or not, by doing it. Whether
you’re a youtube director or a director of a billion dollar budgeted film, the
bottom line is that you are making a movie. Like most things, the more you do
it, the better you get at it. Who is to say what the right way and wrong way is?
10.Do you think the government should take more steps to stop illegal
downloading? And how do you feel when you see a review of your film on a site
that you know you did not send anything to and do not know how they got
I’m ignorant as to whether illegal downloading is a problem or not. I
haven’t noticed it being an issue with our films. Our movies are available at a
lot of different outlets, so there’s no way for me to know who has and hasn’t
11.What is your personal goal, dream?
As far as our
production company goes, I want Big Biting Pig Productions to be known as one of
the top production companies for horror/thrillers in the world.
think we are one of the tops in the world, I just want more people to be aware
12.Do you think a lot of blog critics and for that matter youtube
and other website critics are harsh on indie films?
There are some people
out there who automatically hate anything that is low budget or shot on video,
regardless of the quality of the movie and that’s just rather silly.
think for most people, if a movie is good, budget, how it was shot and whether
it is indie or not becomes irrelevant. The movie speaks for itself.
13.If this never came to be, or had to end tomm. What would you do for a
Does Olivia Newton John need a sex slave?
wanted to get started in this biz, what advice would you give?
