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

 

Rose is based on truth, that's the first point to make so my ultimate aim was to be true to the Real Rose's journey and her message, which was hope! Rose is a hopeful woman broken by drugs, prostitution and controlled by a man named 'Blondie', a Czar-like figure who rules his area with an iron fist.

 

As far as I know, Rose is based on a short of yours by the same name - so what prompted you to extend that one to feature length, and how did the project fall together to begin with?

 

Yes, I originally made the film as a short but always had the feature in mind, the short was made very fast, scripted, shot & edited within 4 months. It was then taken to the Cannes Film Fesitval by one of my main actors, it was screened to various producers and industry people. The short was well-received picking up a special mention, which got me interested in developing it into feature length, that's when the hard work of development began the film spent over two years in development going through various drafts and slowly changes from the film I set out to make. I spent a lot of time in meetings with various people promising a lot and not delivering on those promises, so in late 2010 I decided to self produce, which led me to where I am now with the film.

 

Do talk about your writer Stephen Loveless for a bit, and what was the collaboration with him like?

 

Stephen Loveless is an old school writer, very much the creative and great at story-telling he would still be typing on an old typewriter if he could, I have known him ever since I was a student at college and knew I wanted to work with him on the right project - Rose was that project. It was a tough journey for us both as sometimes I would ask him to deliver a draft in time for a big meeting, and he only had seven days in which to produce a full draft for which I am grateful.

 

What can you tell us about your directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

It's funny you ask, as my approach to directing Rose was so polar opposite to most of my previous films. I feel I found my own voice with Rose and now know how and why I like to handle the material the way I do. My approach is total realism, I want to find the truth in all the stories I tell, but never treat the viewer with comtempt. I like to create real worlds for my characters to live and breath in and I feel this creates realistic stories and moments.

 

Do talk about your key cast for a bit, and why exactly these people?

 

While I was stuck in development I could see the film slipping away from me, I decided I have to make this film on my own terms, that meant choosing people I felt would stick by my vision and follow me on this tough journey. I essentially wanted control of all aspects of the production.

 

What can you tell us about your actual shoot, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

J The shoot was the most chaotic and painful shoot I have ever experienced, it was the most gruelling & intense shoot with our shortest day being 16hours the longest day was 36hours. The atmosphere was tense, but I don't mind that, sometimes on film sets (and I have worked on a lot) there is a tendency for people to lose focus, and this can effect the overall production. So I purposely set a tense atmosphere with various techniques to make sure this didn't happen too much. I know it was tough for everyone involved but what came out of this approach was complete oneness, it was basically like a hippie commune for two weeks with everyone feeling like family. It was tense but it was fun at the same time and everyone worked so hard to achieve something they can all be proud of.

 

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

 

The film is due for release 2014 with Shami Media, who is our distributor. They are at present securing all deals for an international release. So if anyone wants to watch the film keep a look out on all our sites which will detail where and when you can purchase the film.

 

What can you tell us about audience and critical reception of your movie so far?

 

Rose has had a great reception starting off with our festival tour where we played numerous festivals worldwide. We also picked up a prestigious award at the Amsterdam Film Festival 2012, the Van Gogh Cinematic Vision Award, which was very gratefully received. The film is receiving postive reviews from critcs at present with more reviews to come once the film is released to the public.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

My slate is looking really good right now, my latest production Malady which I co-produced and act in is my main focus, as we are about to launch in international film festivals before its worldwide release. It's to date the best experience I have had on a film [Malady interview with Kemal and Jack James - click here]. Myself and Jack James, director of Malady, have numerous projects that we are developing with our company Realist Productions Ltd.
