Your upcoming movie Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind - in a few words, what is it about?

 

The best way to describe Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind is imagine Alice in Wonderland meets Jacobs’s Ladder on the planet Misery.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place?

 

I was directing a scene for the long-winded Essex Warriors (my fault, but it's coming) at my spiritual home The Sunrooms in Southend. Mel Denholme (lead and producer of Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind) [Melanie Denholme interview - click here] had popped down from Wales to audition for a role in Undercover. After watching me direct a scene, the next day she asked if I could look at her script for ideas. I looked at the then 15 pages of Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind and immediately asked if she wanted me to add to it and direct it. Two weeks later it was 80 odd pages long and we were planning production with me as director.

 

What can you tell us about your lead actress and producer Melanie Denholme [Melanie Denholme interview - click here], and what was your collaboration with her like?

 

A baptism of fire, tears and cheers lol. The most amazing part of working with Mel is we both are passionate about our work. Mel will go the extra 110 percent to make it work. I know this because a lot of my additions to the script are fucking DARK. Mel smashed this film with her performance.

 

Baz Salam, Melanie Denholme

Do talk about the rest of your key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

Baz Salam is amazing as the ‘troubled lover’. Baz was great, he has the classic lead look but pulls off the role as well, let’s just say everyone has a dark side. Max Hunt and Benedict Wolf are great as leads, to be honest check IMDb and see the gems in this film. But Porschia Cleaver as the young Grace is 11/10, an 11 year old star in the making.

 

As far as I know, Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind is based on a story by Michelle Gent [Michelle Gent interview - click here] - so how close did you remain to your source material?

 

The lead in Michelle’s version is a tortured soul. I added the fantasy horror to this, but a creepy fantasy. A lot of this film is beyond dark but fuck me it's classic indie filmmaking in my opinion.

 

What can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror?

 

I love horror ever since I've watched The Exorcist with a babysitter and shit my pants at 13 lol. Horror is all about imagination like when you go on a rollercoaster, let yourself go and you enjoy the ride more, this is all about the mind-fuck, not the gore and the human darkness.

 

Do talk about your directorial approach to your story at hand for a bit?

 

My directorial approach was and will be forever hands on, one on one with all the actors. Passion should drive a director not a team of ADs doing all the work.

 

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

 

Well there is a scene in a lap dance club lol … just wait. My approach was no rest for the wicked, people fell apart cried and hated me, but as a team we done it together. This was a place where people could not have time to think about what we were doing as they would hate the script and their roles they were playing as 90 per cent are evil bullies.

 

The $64-question of course, when and where will Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind be released onto the general public?

 

Tunnel Shark, my new found editors are on it, hopefully it will be ready by May/June 2016

 

What got you into filmmaking to begin with, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

Fuck me, the start of my financial downfall LOL, it started in 2002 when a young lady called Angela Gunsten was working behind the bar at my nightclub and she asked me to be lead in her uni production of Pinter’s One For The Road, as she thought I was a character. I said yes because them days I spent more time self medication instead of thinking, and hey presto I’m on stage at Bretton Hall campus performing and smashing it… BOOM. Then I just fell into directing because like when I had a club and a techno label it has to be a way of life for me, and directing a film is the same as creating a record label or a true techno night club. It has to be real.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind?

 

Prior to Twisted: The Devil in Her Mind it was my directorial debut Essex Warriors soon to come and worth the wait, this looks and is amazing.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

Rachel Brownstein, Eddie, Alexander Fernando, Lynn Lowry, Michael Haberfelner

Yeah I have just directed Talk of the Dead, the first leg of There’s No Such Thing as Zombies, written and produced by some French bloke called Michael Haberfelner lol [who would actually be me and I AM AUSTRIAN, you stupid git, lol - the editor]  [Michael Haberfelner interview - click here], and co-produced by Eirian Cohen (Super Agent) [Eirian Cohen interview - click here], getting lots of exposure for Eat My Rainbow TV - check it out I’m co-producing it via my company ESG Media, This Car Rocks, a music film starring Johnny Gunner, and Revenge Soul are in the mix, talking to TV studios regarding Undercover, Allotment Life soon to be aired on Essex TV, and June I start a Howard Stern-style talk show called Slow Motion Riot, and Vegas Dirt filming both in Las Vegas, not to forget the vampire film.

Besides directing, you have also done your fair share of acting - so what can you tell us about that aspect of your career?

 

Well I have done theatre five times - love it, I am a natural actor it’s not work to me but absolute pleasure. On TV and film I enjoy whenever I get a role, I put 110% everything into it. It was acting that led to directing as I got sick of not being directed so I clubbed together people I have in my heart a high regard as actors. I said let’s do this on a budget it can work, it can be done, we are good enough to do this.

 

Filmmakers, actors, whoever else who inspire you?

 

De Niro, Washington, Oldman are my fave actors and then along came Bale. Diaz and Juliette Lewis are my fave female actresses.

Directors Stanley Kubrick, Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Scorsese, Spike Lee, Walter Hill, Cameron, Fuqua.
