Your upcoming movie Creek Encounters - in a few words, what
is it about?
sci-fi horror movie where a group of teachers battle an unknown alien
force. Set in a school they must work together to stop the alien virus
from escaping and taking over the world. What we think is just a normal
day at Creek High, the school becomes a place of cat and mouse - the
teachers are being hunted, but they must take measures to prevent the
virus from escaping.
With Creek Encounters being of the
sci-fi horror variety, is that a genre especially dear to you, and some of
your genre favourites?
I love Aliens, Donnie
Darko, The Thing,
The Faculty, these type of movie have
inspired me to do a sci-fi. We just never have enough money to do this
type of film.
Other sources of inspiration when
dreaming up Creek Encounters?
really liked The Mist and that get me thinking we need to make a sci-fi
horror feature film. We also wanted to do something different without
involving a ghost this time.
Now sci-fi horror
movies demand their fair share of special effects almost by definition -
so what have you planned for Creek Encounters, and how do you plan
to achieve them?
plan to have a crashed spaceship site, and also a giant alien spider that
creeps through the school hallways effecting and controlling everyone it
comes into contact with. We are going to use a mix of practical effects
and CGI to create the spider, which will be the size of a car.
What can you tell us about Creek
Encounters' overall approach to horror?
focus on ... drama, action, and paranoia. I think the gore scenes will be
a lot more effective when you care about the characters.
Encounters being set in a school, what can you tell us about your
projected location, and why film there?
think it’s a really interesting place to film, and taking into account
the teachers' different skills to battle this unknown alien force.
Do talk about Creek
Encounters' intended cast, and why exactly these people?
got Tamara Glynn back because she did a fantastic job with Morris
- we actually
got everyone back from Morris, because of the on-screen chemistry, they all
really worked well together. Kansas Bowling [Kansas

and is very much up and coming. She also plays Blue in Once Upon A Time In
