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?

 

To Jennifer 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?

 

Actually 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.

 

Basically, 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 fun.

 

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?

 

Steven 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.
