Your new movie Party Safari - in a few words, what is it about?

 

An interview with Andrew W.K. in a Safari Park that went a bit crazy and was probably the most random day of my life!

 

What kicked the movie into being in the first place?

 

Andrew was performing at a festival called Hevy in Kent and it was actually in the grounds of a safari park. We thought it would be a pretty cool idea to interview him while showing him the animals and can talk about how much they party. All went down hill from there, haha!

 

What did you find so interesting/fascinating about Andrew W.K. that you wanted to do the interview that evolved into Party Safari to begin with?

 

Me and co-director Nik Box have been huge fans since he released his debut album back in the day. We had interviewed him a few times and got to know him quite well so just thought it would be a really fun idea for my Hit The Floor Magazine.

 

During the interview, when did you first get the feeling things got a little out of hand?

 

Pretty much from the moment we met up for it. He just seemed a bit, odd! As the interview progressed we could just tell something wasnít right. It was like like it was Andrew, but wasnít! When it escalated to him talking about mashing the animals we knew it had gone to a new level.

 

In hindsight, would/should you have done anything differently?

 

Had more battery power, haha! We never expected to film for as long as we did and one of the cameras ran out of batteries part way through. Besides that I donít think there is anything we could have done differently. No direction was needed. It was just one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

 

Based on the experience, are you still in touch with Andrew W.K., and will you ever do another interview with him?

 

Since the interview contact with Andrew has been sparse. Heís a mysterious one. For all we know that could be a huge practical joke heís played on us. Maybe it wasnít even him? God knows! Iíd like to think we could interview him again at some point though. Wether he will talk about what happened though I have no idea

 

The $64-question of course, when and where will the film be released?

 

Well the film premiered at the Movie Days/The Dark Zone festival in Germany a few weeks back. We actually won an award for Best Party Movie which was amazing. The film has also just been accepted for Cannes Film Festival as part of their Short Film Corner as well so we will be jetting over to that in May which is mega exciting. As for a full release we still donít know. I think after Cannes we will have a better idea but at a guess Iíd say July/August properly. There is a fair bit of stuff we still need to sort out.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of your movie yet?

 

Well so far the film has had a very limited viewing obviously, but most people just seem to find it a very confusing or just funny. Itís all a bit of a surreal affair so it melts your brain a bit at points. We did discover some of the Germans at the premiere didnít quite get some of it due to the lack of subtitles, but that was expected. Itís confusing enough to an English audience! Ha!

 

Any future projects beyond Party Safari you'd like to share?

 

Nothing myself but Nik Box is working hard on a few new projects. He is currently trying to finish his latest film Killriculum Vitae and has a few other bits in the works. At the moment itís all about promoting this film and then we will see where it leads.

 

Do talk about your company Hit The Floor Magazine, and Nik Box's Dead Good Films Like Productions for a bit!

 

Hit The Floor Magazine was something I started a few years back mainly just so I could blag into gigs for free and meet my favourite bands. It kinda took a life of its own and is now my full time job, haha. We cover everything in the music, film and fashion world and I absolutely love it. Never planned to be a journalist never mind an editor, haha!

Nik has been running Dead Good Films Like Productions for years now. Heís built up a really good following online and his last film Sheís Dead actually won a few awards as well. Nik is one of the hardest working filmmakers I know and has always been D.I.Y. with all his projects. Heís mostly well known for his horror films but I know his main aim is to make a proper 80ís inspired kids film so keep an eye out for that at some point.
