Your upcoming movie To Jennifer: In a few words, what's it going to be about?

 

The film is about the lengths we go and the insanity we are plunged into for love. It's about unrequited love and the pain it causes. Jealousy, passion, rage, love, life, friendship, happiness, these are all but some of the things we will tackle within the film.

 

What were your inspirations when writing To Jennifer?

 

To Jennifer was inspired by living life and the love, or lack thereof, from a woman. Simple as that.

 

As far as I know, To Jennifer marks your return to the found footage style of filmmaking after Hate Crime. To ask quite bluntly: Why? And do the similarities between these two movies go any deeper than that?

 

I have never been a fan of found footage, but I am a fan of storytelling and the way this story had to be told was through found footage. It gave the film a heartbreaking realism and character that I don't think any other style of filmmaking could have done. I think after people watch the whole film they will see some Hate Crime type similarities. Also Jody Barton, who played One in Hate Crime, makes a return as Martin in To Jennifer [Jody Barton interview - click here].

 

According to my information, To Jennifer will be shot, edited and distributed all on the Iphone 5 - would you like to elaborate on that, and what makes the Iphone 5 such a fine filmmaking tool (for this movie at least)?

 

I am a bit Iphone-obsessed. It's like my third arm or my second brain, so shooting something on the Iphone is a dream come true. Surprisingly the picture quality is great and with the film being found footage style it really fits the look. The microphone on the phone also works surprisingly well and blocks out background noise other than speech, a little interesting fact. I truly truly love working with it, and It's a very unique experience unlike anything I have ever done filmmaking wise. We can also get away with a lot more, location wise, with such a small camera.

 

Let's just say your previous films weren't necessarily free of violence - so how far do you plan to go in that respect with To Jennifer, and what will the film's overall tone be like?

 

To Jennifer is more of a comedy/drama than exactly a horror film, however there are some brutal deaths in the film. That's all I will say about that for now.

 

You have to talk about your two leads Chuck Pappas [Chuck Pappas interview - click here] and Jessica Cameron [Jessica Cameron interview - click here] for a bit, and why exactly them?

 

Ah Chuck. Chuckles Chuckles Chuckles what am I going to do with him! Chuck is one talented beast! He normally is a DP on my projects but the man can act and he gives me what I need from him on screen. To Jennifer wouldn't exist without Chuck Pappas, not only did he help come up with the concept but he also challenges me as a filmmaker, and for that I will always be eternally grateful. He pushes me to strive to make better films. He claims Hate Crime was a 2 out of 10 - anyone who has the balls to tell me that I like. He keeps my ego in check.

 

As for Jessica, that girl has a majestic energy and a recognizable talent. She also had the "girl next door"-look that I was going for. She seems to be flourishing within the genre so I felt like challenging her. I make my actors work hard. She hasn't been on set with me yet (her scenes start shooting in a few days) but I have a feeling she is up for the challenge.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your projected cast?

 

The rest of the cast are great and very talented people and I am lucky to be working with them. My older sister is actually in the film, marking her first feature film, which I think is really cool. I have always been fortunate enough to work with talented people. It's also very cool to be working with Jody Barton again, I love working with that guy. And It was fun working with Tristan Risk, I adore her.

 

So what's your schedule, when will you shoot the film and any idea yet when it's going to be released onto the general public (and I realize it might be waaay too early to ask)?

 

I have no clue when it will be released. Right now were on a break until the weekend and then we resume filming. Some schedules are packed, including my own, but we are making it work.

 

Any future projects beyond To Jennifer you'd like to talk about?

 

Pernicious, which is shooting in Thailand. Moving forward on that soon. As a writer/director. www.perninciousthemovie.com - check it out! Also I am directing a film called White Crack Bastard in March - http://www.whitecrackbastard.com.
