Your new movie The Devils Door - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Basically the war between good and evil.

 

To what extent is The Devils Door based on actual myths, and how much research did go into that aspect of your movie?

 

I researched alchemy and read up in demons etc. I made up all the other stuff.

 

Other sources of inspiration when writing The Devils Door?

 

My main man Stanley Kubrick.

 

When it comes to violence, The Devils Door doesn't exactly hold back - so do talk about the gory bits in your movie for a bit, how were they achieved, and was there ever a line you refused to cross?

 

Well, there's definitely some gore violence in this. I'm more for the quicky stuff and it's fun to figure out how to make it real without a lot of CGI. As for crossing lines, no children.

 

Do talk about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand!

 

I just think about the shots per scene, always two cameras, long, mid, close shots (at least 3 takes or more per set-up, unless you have a actor that's screwing up, then it's much more) ,and then the specialty shots - if you shoot enough coverage it gives you much to choose from when editing ... but it also makes editing a bitch because there's so much footage, but I am there when it's shot so I know the material and I try to get a rough edit the next day (when the final product is done I only use about 10% of the footage shot).

 

What can you tell us about your key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

I just put out feelers in the Facebook casting pages and had them send self-auditions on tape. I hate auditions where they give you a page of dialogue two days before, you drive a zillion hours to get to the audition, you walk into a room with 4 strangers, you fuck up the lines because you're so burnt from the drive or haven't had enough prep time, and drive a zillion hours back depressed. I won't put somebody through that, give me self tape over that nightmare anytime.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!

 

It's work, we joke but everybody has to make a living elsewhere so time is valuable, shoot the bitch!

 

The $64-question of course, where can your movie be seen?

pivotshare.com/media/
the-devils-door/46977

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of The Devils Door yet?

 

2 reviews in, both great, but too early to tell.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Ya, I'm probably going to shoot something this year.

 

What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

 

This is kinda wild, but I'm a musician, I've sung in a couple bands with some radio action, Toast and Fat Sam, I was in LA recording a studio project, and was staying at Grafton on Sunset hanging out on the bar balcony watching the scene on the strip. I struck up a conversation with a very nice English woman, well after a few beers it turned out she was a well-known line producer and was in LA scouting out locations for the movie Goal. I was like wow, can I be in the movie, she said sure ... anyway long story short 6 months later I'm in the movie with Brian Johnson from AC/DC, I gave him some of my music and he came up after lunch and said (in his heavey gruff english accent) "I really liked your shit" ... then I was hooked. When I got back to Virginia I decided to go for extra work on films and I would give the directors my music etc. As I did this I went on enough shoots to learn the process, in the meantime I landed some small speaking roles and then larger ones ... then nothing! WTF, if Hollywood ain't calling I'll write and produce my own and that's the story.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to The Devils Door?

 

Lots, check my IMDb, plenty of stories.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

I suck (if you always think you suck you'll always strive to get better).

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Stanley Kubrick is my favorite but I study them all when I watch film, I watch a lot of the old flicks on AMC also.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Platoon, Clockwork Orange, The Shining.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

I watch em and can't say I deplore them but all this cartoon CGI crap the big studio's are throwing out - Darryl Zanuck used to say a movie starts with a good story.
