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


The Horror is a psychological thriller that deals with the post-traumatic stress of living through a standard horror film. We follow a brother and sister after they survive a traumatic incident and deal with it in very different ways.


You dreamed up the story for The Horror together with Raymond Creamer and Sarah Carman - so what was that process like, and what were your sources of inspiration?


The film came from a want to see this story. Raymond and I always talked about how terrifying it was to think about what happens post credit sequence in horror films. We started at that place of interest and the film grew into what it is now. Dealing with different coping methods we show both sides of the coin with Isabel and Malcolm.


Speaking of Raymond Creamer, who hasn't only written the screenplay but also produced together with you and plays one of the leads - what was your collaboration with him like in each of these functions? And how did you two first meet even?


Raymond and I have collaborated on a handful of projects over the 5 years we have known each other. We met at a film equipment rental house that I worked at when I first got to LA. We talked about what we wanted out of our LA tenure and the goals matched so we got to work. This film was extremely collaborative not only with Raymond but all of the cast and crew. Raymond and I would assemble the project and then the film would grow a little more in between trips to Michigan. We shot over 18 months to allow for the characters to actually age which I think really helped the project feel more real.


With The Horror being a horror movie (duh!), it that at all a genre dear to you, and why (not)?


The horror genre is definitely a favorite of mine. When we started the film we wanted to add something to the genre and I feel like we accomplished this.


What can you tell us about your directorial approach to your story at hand?


My new project Little Hand has stretched me creatively and emotionally. This project is also very collaborative with my actors Raymond Creamer and Jessica Lynn Parsons. We are keeping the crew small and making an intimate project that I feel will hit home with a lot of people.


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


When you are making your first film you have to make every Dollar hit the screen. Some of the cast were friends that we wanted to collaborate with and we met the talented Callie Ott during casting. After meeting Ms. Ott we actually adjusted the script and made the world a little bigger since we were so impressed with her approach to the material. Getting to the point quickly though, they were right for the roles and believed in the project as much as we did.


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


We lived in the lake house location for weeks at a time so it was kind of like summer camp (but way colder). One of our actor's (Lexi Moeller) mother lived close and actually stayed with us and made 3 meals a day. Our cast and crew were like family and we had a blast in the cold Michigan days and nights.


Any idea when and where your film will be released onto the general public yet?


The Horror is available to pre-order on VOD at and releases on April 1st, 2016. You can also purchase a limited edition VHS version of the film at


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


The response to the film has been overall positive. The audiences seem to really like that we made them think and critically they are impressed that the film is unique and not another slasher fest.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Iíd like to share my current project Little Hand. You can watch all of my projects on


What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I got into filmmaking halfway through college. I started out in advertising and marketing but realized I would be stuck at a desk so I moved my focus. I kept those majors though so I would have a business focus to help with selling and getting projects out to an audience. I donít have any formal training but I have been working in the film industry the past 6 years as a gaffer on commercials and corporate videos. I also gaffed two feature films last year.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to The Horror?


Before The Horror I directed multiple short films and a webseries called The Marriage Counselor, which was Moondog Mediaís first project.


How would you describe yourself as a director?


I am a visual director and believe the camera is a very important tool in the process. If placed in the wrong position or at the wrong angle you can make an audience feel something that was not the intended vision. I feel that a lot of modern filmmakers forget this is a visual medium, so I try to remember that what I do with the camera has an effect on the audience. When I am in pre production I always start with a blocking map and find the exact shots I will need to stitch the scene together. This can always change on set but I think you need to do your homework before hand so you can stretch that freedom once you actually get to work.

Your favourite movies?


A couple of my favorite films of all time are the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Shining. After that there are films I can watch over and over and never get bored of including Animal House, Fast Times at Ridgemont High and American Movie. I own over two thousand films so its always quite tough to narrow down your favorite ones, especially when they all mean something different to me.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


I feel like you learn the most from a bad film so there really isnít a film out there that I would use the word deplore for. There are definitely some guilty pleasures though that arenít really the best movies in the world.

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


Please go to and buy your copy of The Horror. Your support in the indie film game is what makes it possible for us and people like us to continue making films. My goal is to not crowdfund to make these projects but to do that we need help once they are finished. Thanks so much for helping spread the word and I canít wait to share my next film with you soon.


Thanks for the interview!
