Your upcoming movie Blood Tulip - in a few words, what's it going to be about?


It's about a beautiful woman named Starla, who has to travel to Amsterdam to find her twin sister, who went missing while delivering a rare painting to a museum.


How did the project come about, and what made you want to make a movie about white slavery and forced prostitution?


I was approached by cult film goddess Bouvier [Bouvier interview - click here], who commissioned me to direct her next motion picture vehicle. I liked the story she had come up with and I wrote the first draft of the script for her in 3 days. We wanted to bring awareness on how bad human trafficking is and shed light on taking steps to save the millions of innocent victims forced into prostitution around the world today.


What were your inspirations when writing Blood Tulip?


It reminded me of one of my favorite movies, The Sinful Dwarf, and so I wrote it somewhat inspired by that wonderful piece of cinema.


What can you tell us about your co-writers Bouvier [Bouvier interview - click here] and H. Rave Rose, and what was your collaboration like?


Bouvier had the whole story mapped out, and wrote a four page treatment. I took that treatment and fleshed it out into a 78 page shooting script. After she read it through she had a number of notes and changes, so I called my new writing partner, H. Raven Rose (who helped convert the Ballet of Blood script from a typewritten manuscript to a digital Final Draft file). She helped me iron out the script, apply Bouvier's notes and come up with the current draft. I'm also trying to get award-winning screenwriter Jonathan Weichsel to take a pass at the script, but he's too busy writing another project, so we'll see.



Do talk about the intended look and feel of your movie?


It's most likely going to have the camp aesthetic that Club Lingerie has. I'm tempted to actually call it "Club Lingerie 2: Bouvier Does Amsterdam!" We're hiring a professional lighting designer to bring out the best in Bouvier's striking beauty. We're not sure if we're shooting it in high def yet. I like shooting in standard definition but HD is now the broadcast standard and a lot of distributors won't take anything but HD, but I like to go against the norm, I'm kind of a rebel like that, a cine-punk! It's going to be colorful, campy, outrageous, with lots of laughs, with veteran actors as well as first timers. It is going to be formatted to fit your screen.


Anything you can tell us about your projected cast yet, and why exactly these people?


Dawna Lee Heising [Dawna Lee Heising interview - click here] is playing Madam Ans because she's a good friend, great actress, and has proved herself worthy to handle a role as big as this. I discovered Anthony Usewicz at an elite Hollywood party and after spending some time with him realized he could be the next Burt Reynolds (not because he resembles him but because of the sensationalism he brought forth). I want to cast Art Roberts because he's a perfect actor that has never let me down. LeJon should be in this picture because he is exuberant in his joy and has mastered the craft of bringing funkadelic chops to any scene he's in. Robert Evans is the Godfather of Soul, and can still collaborate with the young generation. Kimberly Cohen cares about giving a good performance and is a sweet human being, so I'd like to have her back for more motion picture experiences. Rubi Garcia gets a call from casting because she's cool and  classy, but she'll have to be sassy in this new act! Dallas Chandler has a role because she is genuine, charismatic and conjures up real raw human emotion, a weird and wonderful one. Sydney Raye is a star in her everyday life so why not have her? Jack E. Curenton is the Sean Connery of Gore, so he's in. Vida Ghaffari [Vida Ghaffari interview - click here] is a gift from the glamorous underworld of pop culture and delivers her own weight in silvery brass. Vera Taylor is an angel from a country that breeds cooky, carefully kindled anxieties that are very much stellar. Walter Hochbrueckner is an actor who will always give you his best, and who harnesses nervous energy and transforms it into a giant ball of thespian wax and rolls it out, spreads it thin, and becomes part of the celluloid that reels 'em in. And Geo Sargent gets a ticket to ride on Bouvier's new train because he's absolutely fabulous!


As far as I know, you're going to be filming Blood Tulip in Amsterdam - where do you see the advantages and also challenges of filming abroad?


John Cox of Eye on Entertainment told me that the feeling there is different, so I'm eager to find out what he means. He says the light is different than the States. I'm interested and excited to see what exterior scenes we capture there and what vibe it gives the film. I'm a little concerned about filming in the famous Red Light District because I've heard stories of bouncers throwing people in the canals for taking pictures of their ladies in the windows.


Jared hits the red carpet

Presently, you're still raising funds for Blood Tulip, right? So what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?


I am very grateful and surprised by Megan Clare Johnson's generous contribution and everyone else who has chipped in, like John Von Shelton.


Once the budget's in place, what's the schedule - and any idea when and where the film will be released onto the general public yet?


We start shooting in San Pedro, CA in September and Holland possibly soon after, before it gets too cold this winter. The film will most likely be submitted to the festival circuit in the autumn of 2016, and be available on home video soon after.


Any future projects beyond Blood Tulip?


Gerald's Mistress (starring Julia Faye West), Carny Girls, Adderall: The Movie, and Come to Bed, Baby! (an adult play).
