Your upcoming movie Ghost Dance - in a few words, what is it about?


Itís a classic spaghetti western with a bit of a supernatural twist at the end. A mysterious rider known as The Stranger wanders into a frontier town and has a run in with the local ruffians.


With Ghost Dance being a supernatural Western - could you elaborate on that in more detail, and what fascinates you about the genre as such?


Iíve always liked westerns and wanted to use this film as an opportunity to expand out from the sci-fi and fantasy genres Iíve worked on in the past. Westerns have their own set of expectations and characters that work well together, the genre is well established and has great entertainment opportunity by bending peopleís expectations a little bit.


(Other) sources of inspiration when writing Ghost Dance?


Iíve been watching lots of westerns, all the Clint Eastwood classics. A 10 movie on DVD pack from the $5 bin at Walmart started it all off really. Very entertaining old movies, thereís no shortage of them, the one that stands out is Little Rita of the West featuring a female gunslinger. Iíve been watching these to pick up camera shots and steal the occasional line for my own.


According to my information, Ghost Dance was your first screenwriting collaboration with your producer Morgan Muscat [Morgan Muscat interview - click here] - so do talk about the writing process for a bit!


My producer, Morgan Muscat, and I co-wrote the script. I wanted to get another pair of eyes on the project from the beginning to make sure I wasnít writing a complete pile of trash. A great guide was the screenwriting book Save the Cat by Blake Snyder. I took his plot outline and wrote the first draft (by hand), then typed it up and sent it over to Morgan. We went back and forth a few times to polish up the script and flesh out the characters.


What can you tell us about the intended style of animation, look and feel of your movie?


Iím going back to a style that I used in my first feature, Archon Defender, with a toon-shader and ink lines around the characters to make them pop up. Iím still working on the look of the backgrounds. I want to mix the storybook look that I used on Origin and Cold Dark Mirror with the new techniques that Iíve figured out in Blender.


At what stage of production is Ghost Dance presently, and where do you see the main challenges the rest of the way?


Right now the audio is recorded, and the storyboards are finished. Iím creating characters and will soon start modeling the sets and locations. Iím looking to start animation now, depending on how things go.


It might be waaay too early to ask, but any idea when the film might be released onto the general public yet?


Iím going to take time with this project. Iíve typically done a feature film in 2 years, you have to work hard and cut corners sometimes to make that happen. Iím taking my time with this film and making it the best it can be.


Any future projects beyond Ghost Dance you'd like to share?

Iíve always got lots of projects on the back burner. Thereís a fantasy musical opera film epic that Iíve simply no idea how to pull off. So I might go and do a music video next, to warm up for that project.


Your/your movie's website, Facebook, whatever else? for all my other releases. My latest film, Cold Dark Mirror is available on DVD and Vimeo VOD directly at


Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


I encourage any aspiring filmmakers and animators out there, regardless of skill level or experience, to check out The Blender community is diverse and supportive, with lots of tutorials and help for the program. It can literally do everything you need to make an animated film... And itís open source, and free.


Thanks for the interview!


Thank you.
