Your upcoming movie Eden Falls - in a few words, what's it goint to be about?

 

It's the story of a champion skier who witnesses something he is not supposed to see. When he gets into a terrible accident and wakes up at Eden Falls hospital, he finds that his girlfriend is held hostage by a sinister doctor and it becomes a cat and mouse game when he tries to rescue her.

 

How did the project fall together in the first place?

 

Well I was friends with Victor Miller. We met in 2010 when The Big Bear Horror Film Festival (which I had co-founded in 2009) was doing a 30 year reunion of Friday the 13th. I met Harry Manfredini as well. Both Victor and Harry were reunited then at the festival in Big Bear. Victor and I had talked about writing a script together.

Fast forward to 2011 (a few months later) when I was shooting a film in Helena, Montana. There I met Martin Rogers. Martin and I had hit it off and he was interested in writing a horror film as well. We even had come up with the idea of an abandoned hospital. Well I decided to reach out to Victor to bring him on to the collaboration. Eden Falls was born.

 

What were your inspirations for writing Eden Falls?

 

This seems like a simple enough question. I think each one of us was inspired by things separately on our own. Our inspiration, as a collaboration, was  that we wanted to write something that was very Hitchcock-esque in its suspense and still make it something that fans of Victor Miller would love to see. It was a good way to introduce him to a new audience. 

 

Do talk about your co-writers Martin Rogers and Victor Miller for a bit, and what's your collaboration with them like?

 

This is my favorite question to answer. I like it because we made an amazing script in such an unconventional way. Martin lives in Helena, MT. Victor lives in the bay area outside of San Francisco, CA. I live in Los Angeles, CA. Sitting down to write was something that couldn't easily happen.

So we met digitally. We would schedule Skype calls every week or so and discuss the project; create characters, plot points, scenarios, all the good stuff that goes into creating a good story. We would each go off and write, and then submit our sections and then Skype again and talk and critique. I won't lie - it was so much fun! It was also a huge learning experience for both Martin and myself.

Victor is the seasoned pro here. He has 3 Emmys and created the largest horror franchise to date. He is also a Yale English graduate, so Martin and I let him take the lead in the project. He was our head writer. Once the script was done, Victor went through it and polished it, giving it one voice and making it fluid.

 

Eden Falls will be scored by Harry Manfredini of the original Friday the 13th, just like Victor Miller - at all a coincidence, or will there be parallels between those films? And what can you tell us about Mr. Manfredini's score?

 

Well it's actually not a coincidence. When Victor and Harry reconnected in Big Bear and we all knew each other, it made sense to reach out to Harry to score Eden Falls, especially when they had already created a highly and successful brand with Friday the 13th.

Here is what I love about Harry. He speaks musically. He describes scenes and moments to you with music. It's so fascinating to hear that. As a writer/director I really look at things visually - but he looks at things musically and it really adds depth to everything.

I can't give away too much now. I really want the viewers to be surprised and let the music that Harry creates enhance their experience. You can interview Harry and let him talk about it! He will do a much better job at describing it than I would.

 

Do talk about the intended look and feel of your movie for a bit!

 

Well it is a suspense so it needs to be a bit fast-paced, especially since it involves a lot of action. I won't give too many secrets away this early on. Let's do a follow up interview and we can discuss all of this in more detail!

 

Anything you can tell us about your cast yet, and why exactly these people?

 

As a director I have a tendency to reach out to actors I have worked with before, because I am familiar with their work and because we have a great working relationship. I want that to reflect on the screen. We are in the final stages of casting so keep an eye out for more faces!

 

As far as I know, your film's still in pre-production - so what's the schedule, and even if it's probably waaay too early to ask, any idea when the film will be released yet?

 

The film is scheduled for release in 2017.

I am blessed to have an amazing team. My manager Shaun is a rock star and we surround ourselves with people who hustle. So we are always out there and working on new projects.

As of right now, I just got attached to a fun zombie film called Hamachi. I also have a project - that is not horror related - which I wrote and will be directing called You Can Call Me Eve. This is a powerful latina drama about an older woman who has lost her husband is trying to figure her place in life now that she is alone. We have some amazing people attached to that as well including Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis.
