I know we have talked about this before [click here], but your upcoming movie Haddie - in a few words, what is it going to be about?


Haddie is a story about the fear of dying and the lengths some will go through to prolong the inevitable. It's about family secrets and the untrustworthiness of the devil and those in his employ.


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


Wain Bradley and I are both fans of horror films, and we miss the style and atmosphere of the older horror movies (ie Hammer Films, Universal, any of the "creature features" from the 70s and 80s). We decided, early on, to keep as many of the special effects practical and in camera as we could. There will be minimal visual effects as well, but only when necessary. We want our actors interacting with the monsters.


How did the project fall together in the first place?


Immediately after The Devil Lives in Hot Springs, most of the same crew and some of the same actors went to work on an experimental thriller, Tuckerman. Almost immediately following that project, the decision was made to do a third. However, with Haddie, we knew we couldn't do it with no budget like the first two, so we set out to do it the "right way". A couple of tries and misses later, we met with Alexia Melocchi from Little Studio Films who saw the originality in the script and the potential in the project.


What can you tell us about your director David Winning, and what's your collaboration with him like?


Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to meet David yet. He's an acquaintance of Alexia with a HUGE list of films under his belt who read the script and agreed to come on board in order to expedite the production of the film. As soon as I learned that he had worked on Are You Afraid of the Dark? (a favorite of mine since my children were young), and Andromeda television series, I was excited to have him as part of the project.


As the writer and producer of Haddie, how hands-on or hands-off will you be when it comes to actually making the movie?


I, like Wain, plan to be on set every day. We have a certain vision for Haddie and don't want that to get lost during the busy days of production. I will also be working on the film as the second unit director.


What can you tell us about the team behind you, and what do they bring to the table?


David Winning we've touched on, and I can't say enough about Alexia. She's very well connected with international distribution and has worked with many well known actors, as well as very talented up and coming actors. Her insight into the project has been invaluable. Jeff Farley is handling the special effects, and he's worked on films Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, The Serpent and The Rainbow, and on the TV series Babylon 5, as well as much, much more. And Wain Bradley, of course, who's a fantastic sound designer, audio technician, and musician.


Anything you can tell us about your intended cast yet, and why exactly these people?


Although we have LOIs from several actors who you'll recognize, I've only personally spoken to two: Maria Olsen [Maria Olsen interview - click here] and Steve Railsback. Both have been attached to the project for a long time, but, since we've had so much time and setbacks since my last conversation with either of them, we're hoping they're still available when the time comes. We also have a few "first timers" to features, but they are people we've worked with before and we know what kind of intensity they're capable of.


As far as I know, as we speak you're still running a fundraiser for Haddie - so do talk about your campaign for a bit!


We're currently running an IndieGoGo campaign, trying to raise funds for the film. First and foremost, we're trying to raise enough to get started on the monster designs and get started building! If we're fortunate enough to raise our entire goal ($175,000), we have two companies we can go back to that have shown great interest in matching our campaign donations, which will give us our full budget!


Once the budget's in place, what's the schedule? And any idea when and where the film might be released onto the general public yet, however tentatively?


Production will take approximately three weeks. As far as when we get to production, that's anyone's guess. We hope to have the film completed and out this year.


Any future projects beyond Haddie?


Several. There's a children's action/adventure, Alienhead, that's being scripted now. A horror remake that we'll be tackling as soon as Haddie is in post, and, of course, if all goes well, Haddie 2.
