Your new movie E19 Virus - in a few words, what is it about?

 

E19 Virus is a 2014 American apocalyptic film that I made in 2015. Three teens are taken in by a scientist who injects them with an experimental drug. The teens experience extra abilities after the injection.

 

What were your inspirations when writing E19 Virus? And is the zombie genre something you're at all fond of, and what do you think will make your movie stand out of the crowd?

 

One of the lead characters in Venial Josh Pickel was pushing to do a zombie film. I wanted to do something different so then E19 Virus was created.

 

You have chosen three young boys to be the lead characters of your movie - why is that then?

 

It's a zombie film from a young teen's perspective. It's about what 3 young teen would do during an apocalypse. It was interesting to see this type of vision in this type of genre.

 

Knowing you work only rarely from a fixed script, has that at all changed with E19 Virus, and how easy or difficult was it especially for your child actors to improvise their way through their scenes?

 

I never work with a script. Only one person had lines and that was because he literally just stepped off a plane and I had 45 minutes to shoot the scene. You would be surprised how creative people can be when they need to improvise. A writer could never foresee this.

 

Connected to that, what can you tell us about your cast, why exactly these people, and what was it like working with them?

 

The more you work with the same actors the more you know their abilities and how far you can push them. Every movie, they just getting better and better. Those who are serious bout their craft get chosen for the next one. Not everyone does.

 

You play the key scientist in your movie - have you written him with yourself in mind from the get-go, and what did you draw upon to bring him to life?

 

I was the fill-in, like in most cases when I'm in a film. If I see something missing I'll fill the void.

 

Do talk about your directorial approach to your story for a bit!

 

Small cast, small crew, small budget and lots of focus!

 

With E19 Virus being mostly an outdoors movie, do talk about your locations for a bit, and what was it like filming there?

 

Lots of bites from insects and dealing with noises in the forest. Some noises where good others not so good. Everyone was falling and tripping over rocks and roots but we made it happen.

 

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

 

I think when you have done one other successful film and the actors know about it they want to push the atmosphere to the next level. Each movie that I do sparks a huge level of interest from the people who work on it. At the end of the day we do a lot to promote the films and people who are in it.

 

The $64 question of course, where can your movie be seen?

 

For now, it can be bought at joeciminera.com - I'm trying to take full control of all movies made by me.
