I know we have talked about this at quite some length before [click
here] - but your new movie To Jennifer, in a few words,
what is it about?
is about the lengths we go in order to justify and prove our love.
You have shot and edited To Jennifer
entirely on the Iphone 5, right? In hindsight, the most practical tool to
make a feature film, and will you ever use it again in a movie that's
(unlike To Jennifer)
not supposed to look like a film shot on your smartphone?
it was only partially edited on the Iphone 5 but it still is a very handy
all-around tool. I was never planning on shooting another film on this
smartphone format, however they recently released mini attachable lenses
to the phone that might be a real game changer. Only time will tell.
To Jennifer is about
a guy proving his love to and/or having his revenge on the woman who has
spurned him - so how much of this is based on your own experiences, and
how far would you go for a lost love?
Let's just say the
idea for the movie came immediately after I got out of a very long
relationship. My ex and I had just broke up and I figured, use that
emotion and tap into something different within my own psyche.
Most of To Jennifer
is made up of a roadtrip featuring Chuck Pappas [Chuck
Pappas interview - click here], Jody Barton [Jody
Barton interview - click here] and yourself - so what was being on
the road with these two guys like, and how would you describe the
atmosphere during the shoot?
I couldn't have asked for a
better atmosphere. Making a buddy comedy with your two best friends that
are naturally funny? It was a film shoot made in heaven. We all had a lot
of fun together. Between takes we would all crack jokes and have a lot of
From what I've been told,
your "Jennifer" Jessica Cameron [Jessica
Cameron interview - click here] did her whole (main) scene in one
long shot and she nailed it first take. Obviously, you have to talk about
her scene for a bit, too!
She wasn't very good, but it was
all in one long shot, so she isn't completely lying to you! Haha just
kidding, I love you Jess and know you are reading this and most likely
going to call me and punch me through the phone. Jessica Cameron was
fantastic, the scene did take multiple takes, because it was a full 15
minute scene, however if something wasn't working I would just cut before
we actually made it to Jess, so yes, she nailed her part in one take. It
was such amazing and raw emotion, she really enables the end of that film
to flourish the way it did. Her and Chuck played off of one another so
well, I couldn't have asked for a better pairing.
Now we have talked about the
rest of your cast for quite a bit in a former interview [click
here] - but since you also play a character in To Jennifer,
what can you tell us about your character and your performance, and to
what extent have you modelled your character upon yourself, acutally?
was a lot like me in many ways, he had to be because I am by no stretch of
the imagination an actor. I really had fun with the role. Much like me, Steven was a prankster, and anyone who works with me will tell you I am
always joking around. I like to keep a light and fun environment on my
sets. Also, Steven was very focused on making the actual film
itself, which enabled me to work the camera as a director while speaking
as an actor. I was able to direct within the scene so to speak, which was
a great experience.
