Your upcoming movie Dolls - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A medically retired detective chief inspector is using his spare time to study and track a group of suspected serial killers who dress up as dolls and perform extremely strange killing rituals. He believes he has worked out their pattern and is closing in on them but unknown by the man, the dolls know he is onto them and suddenly he becomes their next target.

 

What were your inspirations when writing Dolls? And do talk about the writing process and your collaboration with your co-writer Dennis Hewitt!

 

I was actually inspired from a documentary on Channel 4 called Life of the Living Dolls. I saw the masks they were wearing and thought wow, that would make an awesome horror film. I watch a lot of serial killer based programs such as Dexter and The Following, so I knew instantly what I wanted to write about when I seen them. I wrote the original story and script, then I also wrote the second draft. I asked Dennis if he thought they could be any improvements on the script and handed it over to him to write the third draft. I then took some of his ideas and some more of mine and wrote a fourth draft of the script. Now we have a pretty strong, exciting and gripping screenplay on our hands.

 

Speaking of Dennis Hewitt - he'll also play your movie's lead, right? So did you two write his character with him in mind already, and what will make him perfect for the role? And how did you two hook up in the first place?

 

Dennis Hewitt in Chipped

Dennis is a great actor who seems to fit into the D.C.I role perfectly. I wrote the characters and first draft before approaching Den, but he was always in my mind when writing it. We have worked together on several projects previously, short films and a web series. We met when I cast him as the prime minister in Chipped.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your projected cast?

 

We haven’t actually cast anyone else yet. We are waiting until our fundraising on Kickstarter has finished then we will begin to cast the other characters. You can check that out here, if you want to be a part of this film https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/316862028/dolls-crime-horror-film-by-hungry-wolf-productions

 

Do talk about your film's intended look and feel for a bit? And how will you approach the horror aspects of your movie (as in suspense vs sudden shocks, atmosphere vs all-out gore, and the like)?

 

The dolls have a very strange killing ritual. Now I won’t go into too much as I don’t want to give too much away. But when you are watching this, you will probably feel like you’re on LSD and watching Alice in Wonderland but a more messed up version of it… with creepy dolls. The film will feel very intense and dark at all times. As the audience, you will never know when it is safe to relax but it will also make you think and use your mind. We are following a medically retired D.C.I who is working on his own to track down the doll killers. They will be lots of hints and clues for the audience to pick up on and also a few plot twists along the way. They will also be lots of suspense and sudden shocks as you mentioned in the question. The atmosphere will be really eerie throughout and as for the gore… well, I will let you find that out for yourself when you watch it. One thing I can promise is that they will be a hell of a lot of ‘I can’t believe that just happened’ moments.

 

You just have to talk about the killer dolls masks of your movie for a bit, and what was your collaboration with mask-maker Nikki Dyer like?

 

Nikki Dyer is one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of working with. Obviously she is based in the U.S and has gone out of her way to help us out with this British film which we are really grateful for. Her work on the masks is outstanding. They are perfect and are exactly what we wanted. If anyone is interested in seeing her work and buying a mask for yourself you can check her out here http://www.nikkismonstershop.com/menu.htm

 

As far as I know, the film's presently still in its fundraising stages - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

We surpassed our goal within the first couple of days, which was amazing and we’re really grateful to everyone who has donated. The more money that keeps coming in will help us to make the film even better quality-wise. Better equipment, locations, props, etc. This list could go on forever so I will end it there.

 

Once your funds are raised, how do you plan to proceed - and though it's probably waaay too early to ask, any idea when your movie might be out yet?

 

We will begin to cast and find locations for the film. I obviously can’t give an exact date but I am hoping the film will be out by the end of summer.

No future projects as of yet. I would like to make Chipped into either a full series or a feature film. I have a current project on the go at the moment. It is nothing fancy, just something for YouTube. It is called Film In A Week. We aim to make a short film in one week with no budget and we upload a video every day from start to finish of what we have done.
