Your new movie An American Ghost Story - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A guy writing a book decides he will live in a know haunted house to write about his experience but gets more than what he wanted.

 

Very basic question: Do you believe in ghosts, and your opinion on paranormal investigations and the like?

 

I do not believe in ghost. I think if you're scared enough you will see and hear all kinds of things.

 

Stephen Twardokus

How was the story of the film conceived actually, and what can you tell us about your co-writer/screenwriter and star Stephen Twardokus, and your collaboration with him, both during the writing process and during the shoot?

 

Working with Stephen is great he and Jon always have good input and great ideas that help further the story and the effects. The concept came up when me and Stephen were trying to think of how we can make a film in my house. Haunting was the obvious answer but then we had to come up with what keeps him in the house. 

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your cast, and why exactly these people?

 

Jon Gale did the casting and he really knows how to choose cast members that completely fit what Stephen has written. They were all great to work with and the best part is we all got along  so well and we all are still doing projects together.

 

As far as I know, An American Ghost Story was actually shot at your own house. What were the advantages and challenges of this, and did you ever feel your house might be haunted in real life?

 

Never thought my house was haunted. The advantages were I own a lot of equipment and I didn't need to travel with it all and I didn't need to worry about time. Disadvantages were my family is still there so I felt bad when I had to tell them to stay in their rooms while shooting in the living room or office.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such and the on-set atmosphere for a bit!

 

The shoot was a blast we tried to do many new camera tricks there at the end, and since it was usually just me and Stephen it was hilarious, between takes cause we would make fun of everything we were doing.

 

What can you tell us about critical and audience reception of your movie so far?

Critics response was better than I could have imagined. The general public has either really liked it or it's the worst movie they have ever seen. Which is typical of audiences, there is never a middle ground it's always 10 or a 1.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Next year the The Woods and some promo trailers for films we are pitching and a web series.
