Your upcoming movie Stereotype - in a few words, what's it going to be about?

 

It is about the power of choice and the consequence of our choices. Through knife crime we explore this subject alongside the issues of stereotyping.

 

Do talk about the message of Stereotype for a bit, and why do you feel so strongly about knife violence?

 

Our research highlighted that many of the knife crimes are situations where people get caught in a moment through stupidity. By using a knife not only do they affect their life but they also affect so many others people’s lives forever.

Alongside this knife crime in the UK is a big problem, in fact bigger than anything we could imagine when we started researching the subject. So we decided to create a film that would look at the consequence but also allow our character Leroy to make a powerful choice and do the right thing.

 

How did the project fall together in the first place?

 

We saw the murder of Daniel Pollen on Facebook and we were so shocked we felt compelled to do something positive about the situation of knife crime and started discussing ideas. We then did research around Nottingham talking to young people and someone told us this amazing story of a kid that went out to kill someone on a revenge attack and instead saved someone’s life, it was a bit random but that was their story and it inspired us!

 

As far as I know, you're currently running a fundraiser for your film - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

Well we started two days ago and already we have hit nearly 10% of the target with over 297 shares of the video, it has had an amazing response and we haven’t even sent a press release out. I really feel that the general public want us to do this project because it has no agenda, we will make the film, create the worksheets for youth associations and all of this will be free for any youth association.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mcgibney/short-film-stereotype

 

Once your funds are raised, how do you plan to proceed?

 

Well we shoot from the 30th March to the 4th April so it’s go go go and at the same time we will be keeping people updated with a daily blog.

 

What can you tell us about the intended look and feel of your movie?

 

We have a top DOP Richard Dunton on board who trained at NFTS he’s amazing. We sat down and said we liked the look and feel of Shame, Drive and we love Kubrick’s work with one point perspective as we want to make urban beautiful and find a different angle to Leroy’s world.

 

Do talk about your film's crew for a bit, and what will they bring to the table?

 

Well I have already mentioned Richard, we then have Kieron Edwards, storyboard artist for Misfits and Song For Marion, he brings a real shape to scenes and challenges our story telling. Mike McLoughlin is an award winning art director and he is very much focused on getting truth into the design but making sure the sets tell a story and are not just pretty. Al Clark our executive producer who made London To Brighton is the godfather of our production, he is an amazing coach and helps and guides us. So overall we are very lucky at such a young age to have so much experience on the set.

 

Anything you can tell us about your tentative cast yet?

 

Ok, we have a BAFTA winner that will be confirming next week. We promise to tell you next week.

 

The $64-question of course, when and where will the film be released (even though it might be waaay too early to ask)?

 

June 2014.

 

Any future projects beyond Stereotype you'd like to share?

 

We are working on a black comedy called Swing Vote about a political couple, and a fun vampire film about a group of teenagers living in Whitby, the place Dracula visited 300 years ago (well that’s what they tell me).

 

Richard III: A Memoir of a King's Love

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

 

Jordan: I went through the BFI academy and then was selected for the NFTS campus and I did a load of 1st light courses – alongside this I have knocked on doors to get work experience and I am really lucky to be part of Paul Andrew Williams crew.

 

Rebecca: I trained at University of Central Lancashire in Journalism and then started making short films, being a part of shooters and working with like minded filmmakers.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Stereotype?

 

We completed Richard III: A Memoir of a King's Love, that was well received because we mixed animation with live action. It was selected for BFI Futures Festival, One To Watch National Youth Festival, Cornwell, best film Cinemagic, finalist Filming Shakespeare, it was a great reception for our first short film.

 

Do talk about your production company McGibney Productions for a bit, and the philosophy behind it!

 

Simple – global appealing audience with small stories that are character driven. We are working on shorts this year but we will be launching our first micro budget feature next year.

 

How would you describe yourselves as directors?

 

Method based – we want to make the environment as honest and real for the actors so it’s really important that our crew buy into our actors and philosophy no matter how weird it gets LOL.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Jordan: Edgar Wright, Steve McQueen.

 

Rebecca: Quentin Tarantino, Kathryn Bigelow, M. Night Shyamalan.
