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

 

Phone calls from the dead meets swinging.

 

How did the project come into being in the first place?

 

My wife was watching a TV show about phone calls from the dead. Had never heard of this phenomenon and looked it up. There are hundreds of reported cases of people receiving phone calls from dead people.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing the story for Psychophonia - and how fleshed out has the story been prior to being turned into a script?

 

What I had written for this was more of a concept than a story, there was no flesh.

 

Do talk about your screenwriter Barbara Stepansky, and what was your collaboration with her like?

 

Barbara is a Nichols finalist, WGA award winner and brilliant. I let her do her thing.

 

With Psychophonia being a horror film - is that a genre at all dear to you?

 

Let the Right One In, Pan’s Labyrinth, Unbreakable, White Ribbon - at the height of its game, horror is extremely dear. Horror films that are scary, but have little meaning or beauty are of no interest to me.

 

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

 

I was the president of the Ann Arbor Film Coop in the late 70’s. We exhibited 500 films a year and brought film directors to town such as George Romero, Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog and Joseph H. Lewis.

With a potential distributor in attendance, George Romero premiered Dawn of the Dead at Michigan and signed a distribution deal immediately afterwards.

 

How would you describe yourself as a writer and as a producer?

 

My skill set is in the writing. For me, the whole process begins with the intention of the story and proceeds with the quality of the screenplay.

 

Filmmakers, writers, producers, whoever else who inspire you?

As a teen, Creature Features that played Saturday nights in Chicago (on WGN-TV). Would watch the Hammer & Universal movies on an 11 inch black & white TV in bed, the movies came on late and it was so fun and magical. Senior year in high school there was an Ingmar Bergman series on public television in Chicago. His films had a spiritual element and the black & white images spoke to me. Also, Val Lewton is very inspiring to me. 

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Herzog’s Even Dwarves Started Small which was a perfect depiction of my inner life as a teen.

 

Thanks for the interview!
