Your upcoming film Love Sucks - in a few words, what is it going to be about?


Love Sucks, at it's core, is a love story. In a nutshell its Near Dark meets Smokin' Aces meets Romeo and Juliet... Our vampires, however, DON'T SPARKLE.


A cowboy and a vampire - now how do these two go together, and how do you plan to approach their relationship and the different genres they have sprung from on a directorial level?


Honestly the two are thrown together by circumstance. They both have gone through a recent break-up of sorts, one of which is a very violent. They have to work through trust issues as they fight for their lives against all things that go bump in the night.


How did the project come into being to begin with, and what can you tell us about your writer and co-director Michael Jodoin?


The original story was Michael's. He has been sitting on it for a number of years with hopes of filming it. We met a few months ago, he cast Roni Jonah and myself and things started moving forward from there. We've been struggling with finding the right budget and since then have gone through a number of rewrites and recastings, which Roni and I are handling. Michael is eager to get the film under way and so are we. It really is going to be something special.


As far as I know, Love Sucks is still very much at the fundraising stage - so what can you tell us about your fundraising effort and the rather unique perks you have to offer?


We are indeed in the early pre-production phase. We haven't pushed the funding much yet as we are still placing the cast. However that's about to change. We have always tried to be unique in our perks and offer something new and exciting. Love Sucks is no exception. It isn't often that the fans get the chance to write part of a feature film, let alone create a death scene for a main character. Now with Love Sucks, the fans not only get that opportunity but they also have the chance to DIRECT. Not direct just any scene, with our help, but a major scene with a lot of the lead cast and some very beautiful (and naked) women.


As far as I know, Love Sucks is going to star yourself and frequent collaborator/partner Roni Jonah in the leads. Why you two, and what can you tell us about your characters? 


It just so happened that Roni and I were cast by Michael seperately. So the why would be more a question for him. As for our characters, I don't want to spoil anything, but know we are vampires and we don't sparkle.


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


We're very excited about those currently cast and those we are still in talks with. A lot of the cast are veteran indie horror actors. The notable addition to Love Sucks is former WWF/E, WCW, ECW and TNA professional wrestler Raven. Raven brings a great arsenal of articulate maddness to the film. With his loner background and hardcore attitude, Raven will be welcome badass to what is already a stellar cast.


From the bits I've seen and read, Love Sucks comes across as a blend of action, horror and erotica - so how much emphasis will you put on aspects like blood and guts, mood and atmosphere, sex and violence?


Love Sucks is every bit of that. The emphasis will be equally badass on all things. Our hope is to give back to the fans the vampires we grew up to love and help bury the glittering abominations of Twilight. Some of the very sophistacted, beautiful and brutally violent vamps of the Anne Rice novels and the monsterous, slick and equaly as brutal vamps of films like Near Dark and Lost Boys. Love Sucks will be sexy, violent, mean and nasty...


The title Love Sucks alone also suggests a certain amount of irony (at least considering it's a vampire movie) - is there any truth to that assumption?


There is indeed...


What's your schedule once your funds are raised? Any idea when you're going to start shooting, or when the film might come out even (though I realize this might be waaaay to early to ask)?

We are shooting to have the film released by October of next year. That all depends on the funds we raise and the time it takes us to do so. With any luck we will start filming early 2013.


Any future projects beyond Love Sucks?


Recently Roni and I finished up some acting work on the film The Hospital, and we are currently finishing up our films The Zombie Movie and Deathwoods. After that we plan on dedicating our time to Love Sucks and a yet to be named action film along the lines of The Crow.

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


I'm dying to tell you some of the other cast we are in talks with but I can't until they have been confirmed. SOON!
