Your new movie Infected - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Infected is a short story about a woman called Rebecca who wakes up in the middle of nowhere with little memory and covered in blood. It’s a story about her journey and trying to remember & understand what has happened and where she is.

 

Why a zombie film, is that a genre dear to you, and some of your genre favourites?

 

I love horror in general so this was aimed more at the woman' view point then the infected people's to give a more emotional feel to the film. I do all kinds of horror so in the future, you will see a lot of different directions as Silent Studios Productions grows.

 

With zombie movies beind a dime a dozen of late, what do you think makes Infected stick out of the crowd?

 

Infected is different as it’s not a zombie film per se but about a woman abandoned and her trip through what seems an apocalyptic world, and Rosie Pearson as lead female is outstanding and her performance to bring that to the screen. So more like 28 Days Later.

 

What can you tell us about Infected's screenwriter Jeremy Hill, and what was your collaboration with him like?

 

Jeremy Hill is a genius, and we have many conversations and meetings about current and future projects. He is the like the rest of the team that all have their own skill set, and they are what make Silent Studios Productions.

 

Since zombie movies demand quite a bit of gore almost by definition, and there are quite a few gorehounds among my readership, you just have to talk about your movie's bloody bits for a bit!

 

Infected does have some gory bits and we are hoping to have more and more gore on the screen moving forward. Also a good SFX team in your production crew is always key and we been blessed to work with some very talented people over the years.

 

What can you tell us about your key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

Darren Kent worked well together on Infected and we have a great casting team, so when looking at who to cast we sit down and go through the characters and who we think would fit that profile, and Rosie Pearson and Darren both did that well J

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Shooting on set is always a great experience and I find we always have a great crew and work well together. Great to have a good 1st AD and mine is Kirsty Richardson who keeps everything on track. It is very important to have a great crew that all work together and I believe we now have that, and we are very excited about the NEW films we have planned for 2016 and 2017.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of your movie yet?

 

Infected has had some great reviews and we are happy that it has been selected for quite a few festivals this year. So we are hoping that continues and more people get to see it in 2015.

We have just finished a short film called Extinction which is a segment for the feature Virus of the Dead. So we are excited to see that released, and again the team worked very hard to get this short film completed. Also we are working on another special project this month so once that is completed we will releasing details on that soon. Plus we restart filming our first feature film Torture, so that is going to be a great film and already shaping up to be a gory horror for the fans J

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Infected?

 

Before Infected I had already done a few things including Demon Mist, which has been picked up by the feature World of Death, and my first commercial I directed was Resident Evil 6 for the UK launch to name a few J

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

As a director you must have a clear vision on what the film should look like when guiding the actors, cameras, lighting, etc, and coming from a camera background it is easy for me to work out the angles and lighting with the camera team and then focus on the actors which I really enjoy as you see your film coming to life. I would say I am approachable on set and try to get along with everyone.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

I am inspired by some of the greats like Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino and more recent Tom Six. Also a mention about the Soskas [Soska Sisters interview - click here] as they have a great story that should inspire any indie horror filmmakers all around the world.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Hostel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dawn of the Dead, Hellraiser to name a few.
