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

 

Door to Door is an horror film that is centered around the 7 deadly sins. Our main antagonist The Doorman takes us for a journey that involves seven sinners and brings them into a encounter with a demon representing the sin they are committing.

 

Why did you choose the anthology format for Door to Door, and where do you see the advantages and setbacks vs making a regular feature film?

 

I chose to film Door to Door as kind of anthology so if we ever decided to go back and re-edit we could use any of the stories in the "short film" category in festivals. It also made it more manageable for the crew to know which group they are working with on certain days. We were working with roughly a 5 person tech crew, so in order to shoot a feature film it would have taken more man power than we had at the time.

 

With Door to Door being based on the 7 deadly sins, do they have an meaning to you in your personal life, are you at all a religious person? And did any special research go into this aspect of your film?

 

Door to Door is an extremely personal film for me, because 3 years ago I was at Hell's door, going through a hard time in my life. I'm not overall religious but I do think God helped make this thing happen. As for the content matter, there hasn't been a horror film about the sins since Seven to my knowledge, and I wanted to shoot something that hasn't been ran into the ground like zombies.

 

Do talk about your directorial approach to your stories at hand for a bit!

 

As for as my approach goes, I used creepy stories like Twlight Zone to try to draw some influences from. We set off to make the film 45 minutes long, and it ended up being an hour. However I feel like it packs some fun scary punches that relate to an old school horror television show.

 

You also appear in front of the camera in Door to Door - so do talk about that experience of yours?

 

I am a theater/film major, I also did stand up comedy for a while, so being in front of the camera (as the demon of Greed) was a blast. I LOVE acting with a passion, and you will see more of me going forward with our webseries we are doing this summer.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your cast, and why exactly these people?

 

My cast and crew were absolutely fantastic people to work with. We were all volunteering our time, as we had a micro budget to work with. My director of photography and assistant director Andrew and Jordan Cain put an crazy amount of work in for me. Alex Fernandez who sculpted all the masks is only 22 years old! Extremely talented guy. 90 percent of the cast had never acted before, it was all just people who love horror and wanted to be part of something special.

 

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

 

The atmosphere on set was just a fun loving type of feeling. We all love horror, so we have these pretty terrible subject matters going on like a guy abusing his girlfriend, but in between takes we are joking around and having a good time. We are all chomping at the bit to get back into production to try to recapture that feeling.

 

The $64-question of course, when and where will the film be released onto the general public?

 

Door to Door will be made widely available This fall/winter after i has had its run at the festivals. I would like to release it around the time we start production on our second feature this November.

 

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

 

So far we have gotten pretty good responses from the independent horror community. What the film lacks in production value I've been told it makes up for in creativity and its concept. So hopefully we can generate a bigger budget in the future to get that production value up. 

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Yes absolutely. Our webseries, which will be widely available as we shoot it, is called Killers, and it's about a group of very stupid friends who try to coach a serial killer. Think Dexter meets It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Then this winter we will start on our second feature entitled Sammy which is about a little girl's monster who lives in her closet.

 

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

 

Filmmaking has always been a dream of mine to do, it just seems the stars are aligning and I've been given the opportunity to start pursuing my true dreams. I've loved all aspects of film since I was a child.

I'd say I love Carpenter, Craven, Hitchcock and Abrams. I also love the original Universal monster movies as well as the Hammer horror series.

 

Your favourite movies? And of course, films you really deplore?

 

My favorite film would be Halloween 2, followed closely by The Empire Strikes Back. The only movie that was so bad I'll mention on my hate list was The Vatican Tapes, I HATED it lol.
