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

 

Chipped is a sci-fi post-apocalyptic series set ten years from now. The solution for world peace goes horribly wrong. A group of unchipped rebels fight for survival against the hordes of chipped, against the fractured government remnants and against each other.

 

In short, why a post-apocalyptic story, and where do you see the challenges of bringing something of this scale to the screen?

 

There is a lack of post-apocalyptic stories, especially in the form of a TV series. My idea is unique and original. We aren’t using zombies or aliens. We have the chipped. The biggest challenge of the series is gathering enough people to play the chipped army. We will literally need hundreds of people to make the show as brutal and scary as possible.

 

Your sources of inspiration when creating Chipped? And also talk about your co-writers and your collaboration with them for a bit!

 

There was a lot of inspiration behind Chipped. TV shows such as The Walking Dead and Falling Skies to games such as Fallout and the world we live in today and how it keeps getting worse with crime, lack of benefits and so on. I pictured it ten years down the line and seen chaos, people struggling to live and doing anything to keep themselves alive.

After the trailer had been released, I got a few writers together. We sat and discussed where the series would go and planned out most of the episodes. We decided to go down this route and follow in the footsteps of Breaking Bad. In my eyes this was the best TV show ever made, so I wanted us to follow in their footsteps. Most people on the writers’ team took an episode to write. There were more episodes than writers so some had more than others but everyone seemed very happy with how we went about it. I ended up writing three episodes myself, that wasn’t planned. I was only writing two, but one of the writers took ill and wasn’t able to write it.

 

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

 

The series is going to be very dark and tense at all times. You never know what is going to happen. One minute our group survivors will be fine just sat around, chilling and whatever they do in their spare time and the next minute they will be in the middle of a war. You will always be on the edge of your seat while watching Chipped. That is how I’ve always pictured it and the scripts reflect this really well.

 

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

 

All the cast have important parts to play in the series. We have chosen the people we have as we thought they were perfect for the parts. They all bring something different to the series.

 

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

 

We are currently fundraising on Kickstarter. Any help we can get would be very appreciated. Here is the link. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/316862028/chipped-post-apocalypitc-series-hungry-wolf-produc 

 

Once the funds are raised, what's the schedule - and any idea when and where the series will be released onto the general public yet?

 

We will be filming in February and March 2014 and are hoping to get it released to the general public summer 2014

 

Any future projects beyond Chipped?

 

I have had lots of ideas for other projects so after Chipped I will definitely be getting more stuff up and running but at the minute I am not thinking about that stuff and as I am fully focused on Chipped.

 

What got you into filmmaking to begin with, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

Ever since I was a kid I took an interested in scriptwriting. College took it to a whole new level by introducing me to filmmaking. I went on to university and got a BA Hons degree in TV & Film production.

 

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

 

Prior to Chipped, I had made many short films, a web series pilot and a few music videos. Writing wise I write scripts all the time from many complete series to feature films.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

I like to get my ideas across to the actors and tell them how I want things - but once you have the right actors in place as we have, I think you need to trust your actors, take on board their ideas and let them have input.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Vince Gilligan has inspired me the most. What he did with Breaking Bad was incredible. The story, the twists, the character arcs, the way it looked, the he made the audience feel. Everything was perfect.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

My favourite movie of all time has got to be Inception, but I am more of a series kind of guy. I love getting attached to characters and watching their stories develop over a longer time period than an hour and a half to three hours. My favourite series include Breaking Bad, Dexter, Scrubs, The Sopranos, Game of Thrones and of course The Walking Dead

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

Killing Them Softly. It had no depth and really long boring scenes. I thought the whole movie was pointless. Series-wise I would have to say season three of Falling Skies. If it wasn’t for this season it would be up there in my favourite series section. I don’t understand how season one and two were so great and then they just completely lost it. They lacked ambition and it was very uninspiring.
