Your upcoming movie First Born - in a few words, what's it
going to be about?
First Born is a sci-fi/horror hybrid
about an alien huntress sent to Earth to kill a newborn child. Who exactly
is that child? And what will he grow to be? Well, you'll have to see the
movie and find out.
You call First Born a
sci-fi/horror hybrid - care to elaborate a bit, and what can you tell us
about your approach to either genre?
Well, it's really a
horror movie, but since it deals with aliens, it by default fits into the
sci-fi category as well. Like how Terminator was a horror movie in
disguise, so is my film.
You promise First Born to be
action-packed - so what will your movie have in store on that front?
few car chases, some fight scenes and of course a shoot out.
talk about the intended overall look and feel of your movie?
movie will feel like a John Carpenter or Michael Mann film. Very real, in
the moment scenes. It won't feel staged.
Anything you can
tell us about your intended key cast and crew just yet, and why exactly
Blinky veteran Roberto Lombardi

the movie for sure as well as newcomer Lindsey Bean. She will be playing
the evil huntress, while Roberto plays a more Jeff Goldblum-à la-Independence

As far as I know, you're
currently running a fundraiser for First Born - so what can you
tell us about your campaign?
The campaign can be found at
- it's very straight forward. We are trying to raise 10k to make this film.
Most people usually ask for more, but I am confident I can shoot the film
for this exact amount. I believe a true challenge to being a director is
being able to make a quality film for next to nothing.
the budget's in place, what's the schedule? And any idea when the film
might be out, however tentatively?
As soon as we have the
budget, I will be feverishly begin scheduling my actors, buy all the
needed props etc. So I'd say within 2 weeks of securing a budget, I could
be on location filming. The movie will be shot in and around the LA area,
showing off some of the more ambient and ominous areas of the city.
future projects beyond First Born?
Not at the
moment. But with a little luck, I'll have something in the pipeline.
