Your new movie Cut! - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


Cut! Is a genre thriller horror film. There are many twists and turns and you will want to watch it twice.

My character Jake Anderson comes across as a want-to-be an actor, but as the story unfolds his role goes much deeper than expected.

Cut! Is much more than just another horror film, and Iím lucky to have been offered such a tour-de force role.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Chris Moir can we find in Jake?


My character has three personalities, part sarcastic boy next door, part want to be actor and part serial killer.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place, and to what extent could you identify with its dark subject? And how did you end up on the production side of things as well?


I was asked to come on board as an actor, and I was so impressed with the script, I offered to help produce and do whatever it took to make this film more successful.

As far as the dark subject of the film, horror movies are always fun to work on because itís like playing dress up on Halloween. I became obsessed with the project and David Rountree [David Rountree interview - click here] asked me if I could be more involved as a producer and DP.


What were the challenges of the shoot from a producer's point of view?


The real challenge was to make a quality film on a limited budget. We had to be resourceful and come up with solutions to things that would normally cost a lot of money. It was a team effort and everyone involved did it out of love for what we were trying to accomplish. I think the final product is a real example of what a great team can do.


What can you tell us about your director David Rountree [David Rountree interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Chris, Dahlia Salem, Suze Lanier-Bramlett, David Rountree, David Banks at the Cut!-premiere

David Rountree is very generous and extremely hard working, He has been a great inspiration for me and I have learned much working with him. Rountree and I shot most of the movie together, me operating camera and Rountree directing. We spent most of our time on camera angles, lighting and creating a mood visually.


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


Making a horror film I think is more like making a comedy. Both are usually so far from reality that itís ridiculous. Or is it?


With David Rountree [David Rountree interview - click here], you have since also shot 108 Stitches - so you have to talk about that one for a bit!


Working with David Rountree on 108 Stitches was an amazing time. We played baseball day and night for ten days in a minor league stadium. I got the chance to work with some old friends, Erin Cahill, Allen Maldonado and Alysia Joy Powell. Working with Bruce Davison was invaluable. David has given me the opportunity to learn and grow as an actor in every project Iíve done with him. I see every job as an opportunity to learn and grow as an actor.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I have several projects in development at the moment as a writer and producer. I have recently worked on a pilot with Ellen Barkin, Holland Taylor and Christopher Lloyd called Hollywood Mom.


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

I started in musical theater alongside Zack Levi in Ojai CA at the local art center. I have studied under Larry Moss, William Stanford Davis, Playhouse West, Sally Kirkland, Lesley Kahn and Jeff Kober. My long time coach and biggest inspiration has been Bobbie Chance.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Cut!?


Iíve been in a number of independent feature films over the years.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


I have studied the the techniques of Lee Strasberg, Sanford Meisner and Bobbie Chance


Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?


I have been most inspired by Jack Lemmon, Paul Newman, Russell Crowe, Jack Nicholson, Ewan McGregor, and of course Flipper and Mister Ed.
