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


For the past four months, Cody has been receiving menacing phone calls and messages. This time the stalker is taking it a step further.


What were your inspirations when writing Bedevil, and is any of this based on personal experiences?


I actually wanted to do a film similar to this with James DeWitt who was Dexter in Tinsel. We just never got around to doing the film, which at the time was titled The Call. This film was for my final grade in my production class, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, and I decided to do the stalking genre that I wanted to do almost three years ago. No, none of this is based on personal experiences.


How would you describe your directorial approach to your subject at hand?


With every film I have done so far, I have tried to approach the filming style differently. This was the second film that I had acted in and directed. I think I have really stepped my game up with this film. I am proud of my acting and proud of the film that has been released. I was more verbal on what shots I wanted, and made sure that my crew could see my vision. I wanted to create a movie where it was uncomfortable to watch… I think we all nailed that.


You also play one of the leads in Bedevil - so did you write that character with yourself in mind, and given his rather extreme behaviour, what did you draw upon to bring Adam to life, how much of yourself could you find in him?


Madeleine Garcia, Michael Beckhart, Mikel Ledesma, Triston Pullen

I do, I play Adam. I did not write that particular character in mind that I would be playing him. While I was writing the film, the teacher brought up “Whoever that is going to play Adam better bring it, or it won’t work.”

So I was worried about who I was going to find. About a week before we were slated to shoot, and no one attached to play Adam, I decided that it would be one of the coolest roles to play. With that being said I do have eight years of experience playing crazy. I volunteered at the worlds largest charity haunted house Hangman’s House of Horrors. I spent a whole day in front of a mirror with my AD and one of my cinematographers going over each scene that I had to bring that extreme behavior to life in. I tried each scene differently until we all agreed on what worked. After watching the film, I wish I would have done some stuff differently but that always happens. And there is always next time. All my friends joke around and call me Adam. I can relate to Adam a little. But I am not as crazy as he is…


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


This was the best cast and crew I have worked with hands down, everyone was professional and hard working. We all had a bond, and I think thats what made this movie work. You could tell we all had a blast making this short. My lead actor (Michael Beckhart) had never done film, he does have a few stage performances under his belt, but this was his first actual film. I will be working on two more films with him at the beginning of the year. I never held a casting call for this film, I just went to people who had some acting experience and who I felt fit the character that I had visioned. They were simply amazing to work with and beyond professional. I will work with every single one of them again. 


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!


Out of all four films that I have done, Bedevil takes it. This was the best experience I have had as a director. From the pre-production to filming this was the film that I didn’t want the experience to end. We were always laughing, smiling, telling jokes, and just bonding as a cast. We all fed off each other, scenes that should have been awkward to film, weren’t because we had such a tight bond. We literally joked around with each other the whole filming. There was never a dull moment. I didn’t stress over this film like I have with my others. The set was awesome, the crew was awesome. I never worked on a film where the whole cast had a bond and were together 24/7 while filming. My favorite scene to shoot were the flashback scenes which weren’t in the 12 minute cut. The Director’s Cut will be out sometime in January. Our AD (Michaela Murray) directed the flashback scenes and pushed boundaries and made sure that the scenes looked amazing. Let’s just say I have never kissed so many people in one day in my life. I literally felt like we were shooting a porno, but during that whole shoot, we laughed and joked around, and everyone cheered when the cameras cut at how good the scenes turned out. They do get a little racy.


A few words about audience and critical reception of Bedevil so far?


The film was voted into Freshman Showcase. When I first showed the cut in class, we showed an 8 min cut that ended, and no one really clapped. I was scared, They didn’t like it or they are just to oshocked to process what just happened was going through my head. I mean, I did end it on the worst part possible. I ended it where I cut him loose, and we hug and Adam says "I love you." Bedevil pops on screen. But once the class ended, the teacher told me how proud she was, and a few people in the class congratulated me and told me how much they loved it and how crazy it was. People who went to the actual screening and saw the 12 minute cut loved it. It was weird getting praise about how good I did at bringing Adam to life. Everyone who has seen it so far has loved it. One person did say it was a bit cheesy. I love cheesy and I wanted it to have that B movie feel. Everyone is just shocked on how it ended. And if there’s going to be a sequel or if I am gonna do what I did to Tinsel, end it with a cliff hanger and never do a Part II.
