Your upcoming documentary Son of Lucifer - in a few words what is it about?

 

Son of Lucifer is a very difficult project that I am currently putting together. A very personal documentary that mainly looks into the history of three generations in my family and the unsettling and mysteriously unexplained connections they have to a variety of sometimes supernatural events within their hometown in Northern Kentucky.

 

Son of Lucifer seems like a deeply personal project. What made you decide to want to release it onto the public?

 

It’s a story that I’ve only recently found out in the past year, and upon hearing it I was extremely shocked and was propelled to tell whoever I could about the events. However, I was also had an inner war within myself on whether or not to turn it into a documentary and investigate further on my own. It eventually reached me that, with a subject like this, not making a film about it would be ridiculous on my part. I’m reminded of something like in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia, where the narrator points out that “well, if that wasn’t a movie, I wouldn’t believe it” – a line full of such truth that it’s beyond scary that many aren’t willing to believe it. As this story proves, sometimes reality is stranger and scarier than fiction. And I feel that’s a message definitely worth being further put out into the public.

 

Since your family is in the center of this documentary - tell us a bit about your family's history?

 

The family members focused in on the most in this documentary are my grandfather, grandmother, my mother and myself. Specifics about our histories, who we are and how we reached our current destinations are to be revealed in the documentary – but the strange layers throughout our family history is something that could be considered shocking. Sure as hell haunts me night after night.

 

What does your family think about you bringing their story to the screen (and subsequently to a wider audience)?

 

My family isn’t too proud of my choice in revealing this story – most specifically the ones who are higher subjects in it. Other family members who are “bystanders” or “witnesses” to the events of the story aren’t as opposed to the idea and are definitely willing to be interviewed and help further enrich and help audiences understand the bizarre complexity in the subject.

 

The 1977 cold case crime at the bottom of your movie - you just have to talk about that one!

 

I know this sounds incredibly mean, but beyond the fact that it happened, all events surrounding this and some other of the secrets will not be revealed during pre-production.

 

What were/are some major obstacles while researching the film?

 

There hasn’t been much research at all for the film, because it’s currently in pre-production and the central idea to the film involves me actually researching it. I do know smaller things, though, due to my own personal research back when I learned of some of the events (such as the murder, secrets of the hometown, my grandfather’s occupation, the connection to an Oscar-winning actor) in order to prove that there is factual evidence here. And unbelievably, there is.

 

So far I've only come to know you as a feature filmmaker. How does making a documentary differ from directing fiction? And which do you prefer, actually?

 

I definitely love making fictional work, but working on this documentary seems to be very exciting and nerve-rattling. I both can and can’t wait to begin filming and investigating more.

 

You are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund your film. What is the money from that campaign primarily needed for?

 

I need help for the traveling of my film back and forth from my current city to my family’s hometown and both shooting and investigating around there. Another thing I need help with is transferring the vintage VHS home videos of my family to digital files for the sake of editing them alongside freshly shot footage. I also have a music composer in mind that I would definitely like to pay for, and finally festival submission fees when time comes to finally presenting the film for public viewing.

 

How far into the production of Son of Lucifer are you presently? And any idea yet when the film will be released, tentatively?

 

As I said before, all I have now is all the equipment and information to start. All I need is the little amount of money to actually get my foot out and be able to successfully bring it to the screen the way I’d like to.

 

Any future projects beyond Son of Lucifer?

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

 

Beyond a huge thank you for helping get more word out for the film? Not really, Mike. Just again: a huge, gigantic, titanic THANK YOU for your support of my past film work and, of course, my most ambitious one yet. Hope it gets completed and doesn’t disappoint. I strongly have the feeling in my gut that it won’t. And again, if anybody out there has even a small little dollar to donate to help out on this film, it would really, really be appreciated! Spreading the word, even, would also help a lot!

 

Thanks for the interview!
