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


Jeremiah Kipp: I thought of it as a retelling of Frankenstein with a female creator objectifying the perfect male assembled from the finest body parts. Ashley, what do you think? 


Ashley Tyler: A troubled young woman is consumed with the yearning to find the perfect man in a crowded NYC dating scene, even if it means building one herself, piece by piece.


How did the project come into being in the first place, and how did the both of you get involved with it?


Ashley Tyler: I worked with Jeremiah in the past on a feature film and I loved his directing style and how he brought out the very best of the actors on set. He isn't afraid of dark material, so when I started crafting the idea of Perfect I knew he was the only one that could take this script and transform it into the film it is now.


Jeremiah Kipp: I'm grateful Ashley sent me the script. I'd enjoyed working with her very much on my second feature, Theresa & Allison. This felt like a fantastic role for her: edgy, complicated, thoughtful... and she gave such a wonderful performance. This was a real joy to create, which is funny considering how brutal the tale is as it unfolds.


Ashley, you're credited as the co-writer of Perfect's screen story - so what were your sources of inspiration?


Ashley Tyler: I absolutely love horror films, but I noticed it is mostly male driven killers and female victims. I wanted to create a female killer that turned the tables and men were the victims. And when I would read almost daily on social media a lot of dating horror stories from women, I thought that would be a great motivator to a woman who had had enough, and the story went from there.


What can you tell us about your collaboration with Perfect's screenwriter Anthony Guilianti?


Ashley Tyler: I had been talking to a few writers about the story and where I wanted it to go, but when I had video chatted with Anthony the first time I knew he was going to write this film. He is a fellow horror lover and we bounced so many ideas back and forth with each other that just felt right when developing the screenplay.


Do talk about your movie's approach to horror for a bit!


Jeremiah Kipp: Spare, minimalist and bloody... I felt like it was a classy date. The film is odd but we never dived into the weirdness; we treated it as a normal day in the life... which perhaps is weird in and of itself. 


Ashley Tyler: Morbid but with hints of dark humor...


Jeremiah, what can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?


Jeremiah Kipp: Keeping it simple and character-driven was the way to go. The story is lurid, but I wanted to film it as if we were telling a relatively naturalistic story. Flashbacks in black-and-white allowed us to separate the past and present, and felt elegant... or as elegant as anything can be when you're chopping people up.


Ashley, you also play the lead in Perfect - so what can you tell us about your character, what did you draw upon to bring Audrey to life, and have you written her with yourself from the get-go?


Ashley Tyler: I had already planned on portraying the lead when I came up with the concept of Perfect. What is so fascinating about Audrey is that she goes about these day to day killings like it's a normal routine, it doesn't faze her at all. And in her mind she is absolutely justified in her actions. I drew from my own bad dates in New York and desire for my perfect match but took it up a notch, what would it take to drive a woman to kill since historically there have been very few women serial killers.


Do talk about the rest of your cast, and why exactly these people?


Jeremiah Kipp: The body part victims were all actors I had worked with before, and were signed off by Ashley. They were all so game for showing up and getting splattered. Cole Critchell got off easy; he breezes in, gets rejected at the bar and walks away after getting the last word in. The others had to get bloody or naked to various degrees, which was so brave of them.


Ashley Tyler: All of the body part actors and Cole Critchell were recommend by Jeremiah and I trust his input and ideas so signed off on them. Very glad I did! None of them were afraid to get bloody and took the roles head on, which I loved! And Logan Roberts who plays "Eyes" saved the day, the night before shooting our original actor could not film because of an Illness so we were searching for our blue eyed bartender and stumbled on Logan. He called off his job to be a part of this film and he has such natural charm and likeability that I'm happy we ended up with him.


A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


Jeremiah Kipp: It was messy with all the blood and smoke, but I greatly enjoyed the camaraderie of the actors and crew. Dare I say it was a lovely and loving set as we were making dead bodies and killing folks.


Ashley Tyler: It was definitely a messy set, but all the actors and crew were ready to get bloody and dark so the energy on set was palpable. It was such a great time on set, wish we could've filmed longer!


The $64-question of course, where can Perfect be seen?


Jeremiah Kipp: Follow our social media and we'll be announcing forthcoming screenings -


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


Jeremiah Kipp: We'll have a festival premiere soon, and thus far the reviews have understood the themes and morbid satire of the film, which is nice.
