Your webseries Out of State - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Out of State is a comedy that takes place at a university. The lead is Josh, a hopeless romantic. He lives with his perverted cynical roommate Matt. The series follows their adventures during the supposed “best years of their lives”.

 

How did Out of State come into being to begin with?

 

I have always wanted to do a teen/young adult sitcom. When I was in high school I wanted to make a high school show, in college I wanted to make a college show. After spending two years at college, I began developing the right skills and friends to actually turn this idea into a reality. So it only seemed fitting that it took place at a university.

 

To what extent is Out of State based on your personal experiences, and your (other) sources of inspiration for the series?

 

A lot of Out of State is based on my life at college. The Matt character is a film major like me because I found that it was easier to write for something I knew. All these quirky situations the boys get into happened to either myself or someone I know as well. I think comedy comes from relating to the topic. If I write about stuff that happens in my everyday life it makes sense that someone watching it will think “Haha, been there!” and continue to watch, right?

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, was any of him based at all on your real self, and between him and the lead character Josh, whom do you actually identify with more?

 

Josh and Matt are certainly two very extreme versions of myself. Matt is that side of me that eats, sleeps, and dreams girls. He’s also overly confident and it kind of makes him charming in a weird way? I guess I’m kind of like that. Except he has gotten with a lot more girls in the show than I have in real life. 

Josh is taken from the more paranoid overthinking side of me. The one who is always in his head making sure that he considers every outcome before making a decision. I spend hours in my head deciding what to get for dinner. I guess by taking these two very different qualities about me, amplifying them, putting them into two different characters, and making them live together was what gets the best out of them.

 

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

 

My friend Deanna Giulietti plays the boys’ love interest named Deanna. The Deanna character is supposed to be “one of the boys”, she doesn’t mind Matt’s perverted personality and she’s first in line to make fun of Josh’s paranoia. I’ve known Deanna Giulietti for two years now, she’s a theatre major and she’s so outgoing. She is so fun and really embodies everything I was looking for the character. I couldn’t imagine anyone else who could nail my manly girl-writing as well as her. Another cast member of interest would be Hugh Donson played by my good friend Dan Johnson. What’s great about the Hugh Character is that all of his bits and lines were all improvised or created by Dan. I have worked with Dan so many times on countless comedy videos and I was dying to find a place for him in the show. In the end I just wrote this “blank slate” of an antagonist for Matt and Josh and had Dan fill in the mold with his genius sense of humor.

 

Do talk about your directorial approach to your subject at hand for a bit!

 

When I direct Out of State I try to be open to feedback as much as possible. It’s impossible to judge your own work so when I come up with an idea for a shot or whatever I always like to make sure most of the cast and crew like it. I always want to make sure it’s funny and if I’m the only one that thinks it’s funny, it’s not funny. People like Josh (who plays Josh) and Dan (who plays Hugh) have great chemistry together so a lot of times I let them bounce off each other and we always end up with hilarious stuff.

 

So where can Out of State be seen, and what can you tell us about critical and audience reception of your series so far?

 

You can find Out of State on my YouTube channel Stonebreakers10 - I’ve been getting a lot of compliments about the series. It’s very different from what I normally put on my YouTube channel and it’s very exciting to see people reacting so positive to me trying to “evolve” my content. A lot of people say it gives them a Scrubs or How I Met Your Mother vibe. Those are two of my favorite shows so of course that’s great to hear.

 

Anything you can tell us about future developments on Out of State?

 

Well we just wrapped up season 2 on a nice playful cliffhanger. I always like to end the season on a cliffhanger especially when I don’t know if I’m going to make a new season or not. Right now I honestly can’t tell you what’s in store for Out of State, you’ll just have to wait and see.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Well Out of State is part of my YouTube channel called Stonebreakers10. I focus on different forms of comedy. This includes sketch comedy and music parodies. I’ve been told they're funny so maybe check that out, if you want.

 

What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and what can you tell us about your formal education on the subject?

 

Well at first I wanted to be an actor. I’d put on all these performances for my friends and family. Soon I started studying acting in high school. When YouTube came around I decided I really wanted to put some stuff up there to show my acting skills. I did all the work myself. I would set the camera up, film myself, then edit. More and more I started liking the behind-the-scene parts of making these videos. I started looking into furthering my education in film making and left my acting studying behind. I have been taking film classes for three years now at Hofstra University pursing a Bachelor of Science degree in Film and Television. I have taken many different classes learning all the different aspects to making content. This includes live television, screenplay writing, sitcom writing, filming using literal film, and documentary filming.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Out of State?

 

Before Out of State it was always just me and my video camera. I’d dress up in a ridiculous outfit, press the record button and run into the frame and go nuts. There’d be like four characters in each video and I’d play all of them. I was always too embarrassed to ask someone to help me because how ridiculous the content was.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

I think I’m an easygoing director. I am always open to feedback. I don’t like to just assume everything I write is law. I could think a joke is funny as hell but then if the crew doesn’t think it’s funny I scrap it almost instantly and usually let the actors try to think of something funnier. Producing something like Out of State is really a team effort. Just because I’m the one saying “action” and “cut” doesn’t mean I’m the boss. At least not to me anyways.

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Joss Whedon and Quentin Tarantino I think are two of my favorite because of how they write and direct their own work. Plus I am always in awe of the characters and stories they are able to create. I’ve felt feeling from watching their movies that I have never felt anywhere else. It’s weird but I love it.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Well I think my go to are Star Wars and The Godfather just because I have such extreme memories watching those movies all my life. My favorite comedies are Waiting, Walk Hard, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

 

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

I HATE horror movies! I don’t like getting scared. Call me a baby but I don’t believe in ‘enjoying being afraid’. I personally prefer not peeing my pants after watching a film thank you very much my good sir.
