Your upcoming movie All My Boyfriend's Girlfriends - in a few words, what's it going to be about?

 

It's a female driven comedy about a woman whose best day turns into the worst when she is forced to meet all her fiancé's ex-girlfriends at their engagement party.

 

How did the project come together in the first place, and what made you want to produce?

 

Well, It was originally done as a one woman show and was up on the Comedy Central stage for 2 years. It was the optioned by almost every major studio in town. Fox let go of the last option because they said there was no audience for female driven comedies. Well, we all know how that one ends! Can you say Bridesmaids?  I originally saw the one woman show and it was hysterical! When Megahn brought me the script after it had been sitting for a while I jumped at the chance. It is probably one of the funniest scripts I have ever read.

 

Do talk about your film's brand of comedy for a bit, and do you consider yourself at all a humourous person?

 

Ya know, the funny thing is I don't really gravitate to comedies at all and in fact this would be the first one I will produce. The script was just so good I really wanted to see it get made.

 

What can you tell us about All My Boyfriend's Girlfriends' writer Megahn Perry and director Luc Schurgers, and what's the collaboration with them like during pre-production?

 

I've known Megahn for 20 years and when we were looking at directors, Luc's comedic sensibility seemed appropriate.  I gave him the script and he loved it. When we all sat down it became clear to us that Luc really got the film we wanted to make. It's funny because earlier this year we had the opportunity to make the film for 1.6 million but the producer was set on a director and although he had good credits and a few successful films, he really didn't get or understand the film we were trying to make. It was a hard decision but we decided to move on.

As far as I know, the film is currently in its fundraising stages - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

It is a massive amount of work and I have to say probably the hardest thing I have ever done, work wise! But hopefully in the end it will all be worth it and we will get to see this great script come to life.

movie?ref=nav_search

 

Apart from funding, where do you see the biggest challenges in bringing the show on the road, production-wise?

 

Low budget production is the easy part for me. I've been doing it a long time and everyone on the team has a lot of experience. Obviously when doing smaller films you don't have the luxury of throwing money at problems which means you have to get very creative. Funding is by far the hardest part.

 

Anything you can tell us about your intended cast yet, and since you're also an actor, will you appear in front of the camera in All My Boyfriend's Girlfriends as well?

 

No, I won't be in front of the camera on this film and I am happy about that. Producing it will be fun enough. It's sometimes nice to only wear one hat. We do have a number of actresses who want to do the film but we haven't announced any of them yet, and yes you know who they are! :)

 

So once the funds are raised, what's the schedule and even if it might be waaay too early to ask, any idea when and where the film might be released onto the general public yet?

 

Our plan is to put the film into production just after the new year. Hopefully making it ready for Sundance 2016.

 

Any future projects beyond All My Boyfriend's Girlfriends you'd like to share?

 

I do have quite a few films in the pipeline at the moment but I think I'll wait on talking about them, haha!!

 

You have initially entered the filmworld as an actor - so what can you tell us about your work in front of the camera, and how would you describe yourself as an actor?

 

I have spent most of my career doing independent films and playing character roles. These roles have been really fun to play and to be honest I feel more comfortable playing a cross-dressing drug dealer than myself in front of the camera.

 

What made you pick up producing eventually, and what can you tell us about the films you produced prior to All My Boyfriend's Girlfriends?

 

I started producing as a way to create an avenue for my work as an actor.  I'm not the sit around and wait for your agent kind of guy but as the years progressed I really started to love being part of the storytelling process and began writing as well. I did run development for a production company a few years back and it was so much fun to work with the writers to develop and shape the stories we were telling.

 

What do you look for in a project that you want to produce?

 

Good writing and storytelling. I don't care so much about the genre as I do the content and how the story is told. But I do love things that touch my heart and make me stop for a minute to ask some big questions.

 

Filmmakers, actors, whoever else who inspire you?

 

Wes Anderson, David O'Russel, Charlie Kaufman, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman to name a few.
