Your upcoming movie Finding Waldo - in a few words, what is it about?

 

When an ex pro-footballer who fell from grace and an eccentric novelist break out of a psych ward, a crazy adventure through the Arizona desert takes them both on the path to redemption.

 

Blu, what were your inspirations when writing Finding Waldo?

 

Being a writer, we are sometimes burdened with lunacy and to tame that madness, we sometimes turn to drugs or alcohol or wild women. Often it's all three, and having my own battles with two of those three (booze and drugs), I found it therapeutic to let Waldo run amok and do things I know I'd be arrested for...

 

What can you tell us about your key cast?

 

I like to think that the characters are authentic, or at least existing authentically. Far too many people don't live authentically. Sure, they're real, but are often just placeholders in the long queue of man's existence. I can honestly say Chance Reed and Waldo Greene live with the authenticity of what all of us wish we could do from time to time, and that is to let go of who we think we are and embrace who we discover we truly are. Truth is a naked swimmer.

 

The parts of Waldo and Chance were written for Matthew Jacobs and Bo Keister [Bo Keister interview - click here]. The true serendipity of indie filmmaking is you can write a character and you find yourself searching to fill that character, and the beauty is Cyrus Motley is Richard Riehle [Richard Riehle interview - click here], I just didn't realize it as I was writing the script. It's an amazingly organic experience to have an actor fit the character with such ease and having Richard for that role, just happened to be perfectly aligned with the universe.

We are still casting several roles, and one great talent, Tom Proctor (Guardians Of The Galaxy) is coming on for the role of Bruno, the owner of Crazy Eights Strip Club, which has an all you can eat seafood buffet on Wednesdays. We are also casting for the part of Pogo, an African American, cross dressing psych ward orderly with a fabulous head of hair. Pogo's pink convertible Mazda Miata with California vanity plates "Cocopuf" was stolen by Chance and Waldo. Let's just say, Pogo is going to get his car back one way or another, so the hunt is on.

Do talk about Finding Waldo's brand of humour for a bit, and how would you describe the film's comic approach?

 

For me, I am a fan of films like Raising Arizona, Mad Max, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. As far as humour, I wrote the script with two elements in mind. The audience must fall in love with the characters and make the film watching experience fun. Kind of like life, you need Love and Fun.

 

With Finding Waldo being a road movie of sorts - what kind of a challenge will that pose from a producer's point of view?

 

A logistical challenge for sure. Without giving too many secrets away, there are little cheats we're doing that filmmakers who don't have a studio backing them will do. There is a scene where Waldo drugs Chance and loads him in the backseat of a crop duster airplane. Nothing like waking up in the backseat of a crop duster as it does aerial acrobatics and yes, there's vomit. This scene is very complex, but when we put our ideas together, we figured out ways to make this expensive scene work on little money and still get the effect we're after.

 

Your director David Mun [David Mun interview - click here] - what will he bring to the table?

 

Back to what was said earlier: Putting our heads together to get the best result. Dave is a natural leader with vision. Having worked with him on House Of Good And Evil, which won 8 International Best Picture awards, he's proven himself. Also, he works on many studio films and television shows, so he grasps what the quality needs to look like, while making it happen as an indie director.

 

As far as I know, the film's still in its fundraising stages as we speak ... so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

We have raised nearly half the budget through our co-production company Planet Capricorn, the company behind the music series Welcome To Soundwaves. The company has great vision and is helmed by Robert Krueger, Dennis Willis, and Steven Kirk. Another great team. We are raising the balance mostly by having Bo Keister work at Crazy 8's on Wednesdays, otherwise we need help from our friends. Every Dollar helps. If anyone wants to help, please visit https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/finding-waldo and if you can give cash, please help share the campaign for this FUN film everyone will LOVE.

 

Once your budget's in place, what's the schedule ... and any idea when and where the film might be released onto the general public yet?

We plan on shooting in October, with a spring release. We have access to many great distribution companies who are anxious to see a finished project, based on the success of our last few projects.

 

Any future projects beyond Finding Waldo?

 

Always. We are working on a werewolf genre series to shoot in Floyd Virginia, the same community we shot House Of Good And Evil. The Lycanthropist is a new spin on the werewolf character.
