Your new short Beyond Macabre - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Beyond Macabre is about one man's mind journey into madness in which he is tormented by evil clowns. But, are they real? Beyond Macabre is the third Macabre film after Avant-Macabre and Grand Macabre from last year...

 

With Beyond Macabre revolving around the fear of clowns - why clowns, and is this fear something you're suffering from yourself?

 

I hated that damn clown doll in Poltergeist in 1982 as a kid. This stuff doesn't bother me so much these days, but the likes of Stephen King's IT coming out, and the idea in-bedded to do a clown-like film last year kind of came to the fore-front.

 

(Other) sources of inspiration when writing Beyond Macabre?

 

Good friends help a lot because of their love for horror genres. I guess I can thank avant-garde bands and music videos for strong visuals in the likes off Mr Bungle - for whom their music video Quote, Unquote aka Travolta was banned from MTV in 1991 for it's OTT content and use of strange images ..

Do talk about your film's approach to horror for a bit!

 

I try to create worlds and situations I like and fear in nightmarish images on screen.

 

What can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

The first half was somewhat improvised from footage I had with poetry from Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc [Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc interview - click here] - a talented writer from Florida, USA. The rest of the film - with the clowns - was pre-planned and thrown together to finish the rest of production. However, I have to thank Dylan Knight, Alex Reed and my younger brother, Steven Chamberlain, for pushing me, too. Once in the zone,the madness and magic can happen on screen, again!

 

Do talk about your cast, and why exactly these people?

 

As mentioned before, these are people, cast and crew I met through actor workshops in Nottingham. It's always trial and error, well it has been for me, but I genuinley do like these people and they're family to me!

 

Quite a bit of Beyond Macabre was filmed outside - so do talk about your exterior locations for a bit, and what were the advantages but maybe also challenges filming there?

 

Weather! That damn weather plays a part in outdoor filming I find. There is a local woodland to me, so I find the outdoors brilliant for a horror film set with trees and nature!

 

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

 

Everybody was great - no complaint, I just get into the zone to film and focus my head away into this fantasy filming world of Beyond Macabre!

 

The $64-question of course, where can Beyond Macabre be seen?

 

Touch wood... for Halloween 2017 on my YouTube, but am thinking about festivals, too!

 

After Avant-Macabre and Grand Macabre, Beyond Macabre is already the third film bearing "Macabre" in the title - so how are these three films connected?

 

Somewhat, but somewhat not - I see them as experiments of film.

 

How do you think you've grown as a filmmaker from Avant-Macabre to Beyond Macabre?

 

I feel as though I have taken on-board experience of local actors and crew and true friendship for future productions. I feel blessed. It's all about respect for each other on the day and beyond! Again, my experiences in the past have always been trial and error! I love the Nottingham and London scene for gaining contacts and experience and friends - it means a lot!

 

Any future projects beyond Beyond Macabre you'd like to share?

 

Some pipleline projects are being talked about, with cast and crew. I am looking into doing another Christmas special for 2017, too!
