There are some aspects that
are like me and some that are not.
What can you tell us about the rest of your
cast, and why exactly these people?
of the cast I was friends with or knew before filming, since I knew from
the beginning that I was going to use friends to help ease the cost and I
knew it would be a learning process for me. But with having some of my
best friends on board for my 1 st
film was a great experience and something I can always look back I did
with my friends.
You of course also
have to talk about your "Owner house" for a bit, and what was it
like filming there?
loved every minute of it! That house was the perfect character for the
film and I wrote the script around the house. When I
was a kid I was also fascinated with that house and since we made the
movie Iíve had people from all over email and message me saying my
grandma lived in that house or I grew up there, so it's pretty neat to have
a house that has so much meaning to people in the film.
A few words about the shoot as such,
and the on-set atmosphere? And how long did it take to actually film your
believe it or not we actually had one set for the film and that was for
the attic space scene and the cracked ceiling scene were all filmed on a
set and we used a series of edits to make it seem like one fluid scene and
make it seem like we are actually in the house. We also had a digital
transmitter on my camera that went to another room or area where my asst.
director Brent would be watching and give me pointers if I needed to
change anything. As far as how long we shot every weekend for 3 months
then went back and added the new family and we did that in a span of two
Anything you can tell us about audience and
critical reception of Unlisted
has been great when the film was st
released we had made it as high as ninth on Amazons top 100 hot new horror
release list for DVD and have had some great critic reviews for the film.
With that being said you will always have people who donít like horror
or found footage horror but for the most part it has been positive.
Any future projects you'd like to share?
mean thereís always room for Unlisted Owner II. I would love to do a
traditional film next but it all depends on the funding we get from Unlisted
got you into filmmaking to begin with, and did you receive any formal
training on the subject?
I graduated high school I kept coming up with ideas for different horror
films. I was going to college for digital entertainment and game design and
learned about video editing and fell in love with it. So after I realized
what I wanted to do I began writing scripts and finally made Unlisted
What can you tell us about your
filmwork prior to Unlisted
did a teaser trailer for a script I had written called Meth House which
you can find on YouTube , I also did a video for a GoDaddy commercial
contest and got 9th
out of 539 videos for the community vote section.
How would you describe yourself as a director?
laidback but also know how I want the shot to look. If I encounter a
problem on set Iím always trying to think of ways to get around the
who inspire you?
Roth is a huge influence on me. He was the director who
introduced me into real life horror with the Hostel
films. Also James
Whale, who directed Frankenstein,
The Invisible Man and other
Your favourite movies?

and The Creature From the Black Lagoon.
and of course, films you really deplore?
hard for me to say which ones I dislike. After making a movie it really
opens your eyes to how hard it is to make a film. I respect any person who
makes a film.
