Your short House Call - in a few words, what is it about?

 

It’s about a woman who thinks the ends justify the means. If fact, all four characters think that as well. It’s also about the repercussions of your decisions and ‘karma’ in general. Who doesn’t love a good revenge story?

 

What urged you to make House Call in the first place, and how did the project fall together?

 

I have a feature supernatural horror script I wrote called Unresolved and I prefer to direct it. So House Call was originally something I shot to show I can shoot horror. I also just love the horror genre and wanted to shoot a ghost/horror flick.

 

I wrote about House Call it "pretty much follows the pattern of a classic EC-Comic - in story, not in style - up to its macabre yet highly moral surprise twist ending" - a comment you can at all live with?

 

I can live with that comment.

 

Sources of inspiration when writing House Call?

 

Lots of inspirations - old ghost story films and TV shows of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s especially. Films like The Changling, Creepshow, and so many others.

 

With House Call being a supernatural horror film, is horror a genre at all dear to you, and your genre favourites?

 

Horror is one of my favorite genres, definitely.

 

How would you describe your directorial approach to the subject at hand?

 

Aimee Bello

Michael Jordan

I like to rehearse, but depending on the story, the amount of rehearsal time depends. I did little rehearsals for this film. The only scene we really rehearsed for was the bedroom scene. Everything else was organic. I like to guide actors in scenes as opposed to dictating.

 

A few words about your cast and crew?

 

I had three different auditions to find the right four actors. I am very grateful and pleased with all of their performances. My crew did an excellent job as well and it was a tough three day shoot.

 

The $64 question of course: When and where will House Call be released?

 

After the festival run I will make it available to stream online later in the year and possibly as early as this summer. Still working that out but I will definitely make it available to the general public this year.

 

What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject? And what can you tell us about some of your filmwork prior to House Call?

 

I just got that itch and decided to go to film school to see if it would be something I like. I went to Columbia College Chicago and learned that directing was what came the most natural. My work before House Call is mainly student films and some commercial spec spots

 

At least in my theory, every filmmaker wants to make (at least) one feature film eventually. Is this a correct assumption when it comes to you, and is anything in the cards yet?

 

I would like to make a feature film and as of now there is nothing in the cards. I have been told a lot recently that I should expand House Call into a feature. So, we’ll see what happens.

 

(Other) Future projects you'd like to talk about?

 

I am in post production on a dark comedy short called Mr. Prick and that will be done later this year. Other than that, I’m looking for representation and producers who want to make quality films.

 

Directors who inspire you?

 

Many directors. Off the top those I can think of are Scorsese, Sam Raimi, Ti West, Romero, Aronofsky and a ton of others.
