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

 

József Gallai: Moth is about an enthusiastic lecturer and her student, who travel to Europe to go after the mythology of the Mothman, but soon the two have to fight for survival. Hopefully, it will be an edge-of-your-seat horror movie with great locations, interesting characters and storyline.

 

What were your inspirations for dreaming up Moth, and did you do any actual research on the myth of the Mothman beforehands?

 

J.G.: First of all, I really like legends and stories based on true events. The legend of Mothman is one that really drew my attention, moreover, not too many films deal with this character. Of course, I saw and really liked The Mothman Prophecies with Richard Gere, but I am sure Moth will be a unique interpretation. I did some research and saw almost all Mothman-related movies and after that I started to write the script.

 

Just like your last movie Bodom, Moth is shot found footage-style - so what do you find so appealing about that style of filmmaking, and how do you think Moth will stand out of the crowd?

 

Gergö Elekes: One of the most important things for an independent filmmaker is the budget and this is one of the most appealing aspects of found footage style. In addition to this, it can be really exciting for the audience to put them into the center of the events and watch the film just as if they were the main characters. With Moth we would like to follow the rules of this genre, however just as was the case with Bodom, we will try to tell this story in a smart way.

 

How would you describe Moth's approach to horror (as in suspense vs sudden shocks, atmosphere vs all-out gore and the like)?

 

G.E.: We are much more into mystery and suspense in storytelling than gore and sprinkling of litres of fake blood, hence we intend to shoot a film with a chilly atmosphere with sublime landscapes, exciting characters and eerie musical score while focusing on the human side of our protagonists.

 

Do talk about the film's intended overall look and feel for a bit?

 

G.E.: It can change as we are in the pre-production of the film but we agreed that Moth needs to be cold…it will be reflected in the colours of the images, the wardrobe, the lights, etc. We started something with Bodom, experienced a lot of things in case of horror movie making but we also made mistakes. We intend to correct those failures and turn our updated knowledge into the advantage of this upcoming project.

Lídia Szabó

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

 

J.G.: The majority of the crew came from our previous feature Bodom. Gergö is responsible for co-directing, shooting and editing the film as well as  composing the score. Regarding me, I was in charge of the script and after 2012, one will be able to see me in the leading role again. We are extremely happy to introduce Lídia Szabó, a very enthusiastic and talented actress. The film’s executive producer is John Lepper, founder of TheBlood-Shed, while co-producers are Sándor Gál of Rovar Pictures, Viola Major, co-producer of Bodom and Kitti Galambos, producer of Gergo’s previous short film Blue Dream.

 

As far as I know, Moth is still in pre-production - so what's the schedule, and any idea when and where the film might be released yet (even though it might be waaay to early to ask)?

J.G.: That’s right, it is still in pre-production, however, some smaller scenes have already been tried out and shot. Principal photography will be in September and October, and it is supposed to be completed in January 2016. Talking about distribution might be quite early at this moment. Fortunately, people are interested, so knock on wood. I’m pretty sure it will be available to people, but I do not know if it is going to get a bigger or a smaller release. We have reasonable contacts, thus we’ll do our best.

 

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

 

G.E.: We have a couple of ideas from which we may carry out something, but right now, we are busy with Moth.
