Your upcoming movie Sorrow - in a few words, what's it going to be about?

 

"Mila is brutally attacked by evil psychopath serial killers, taken to a decaying home where the torture and humiliation continue before she manages to escape, seeking justice and exacting revenge on her aggressor she refuses to surrender as local police are moving in closer."

 

What were your inspirations when writing Sorrow, and is it true it's based on a true story?

 

I had this dream once and when I woke up I wrote it down, I had already decided to move to Utah for the summer and making a film up there was the main reason I was going up there. After 2 months my friend introduced me to actor Eric Martinez after they both kept in touch while Eric was visiting Moab. I made a conniption and wrote a 15 page script in 2 month and began pre-production. About a month later we were in production and shot that script in 3 days. My idea from that moment on was making a feature film and this would be the inciting moment in the script and from there It would be a start for a feature film. Writing for actors who I had already worked with gave me a pleasant writing experience, I was more imaginative when I sat down to write 76 more pages. I did research and it's based loosely on a serial killer from Houston, this along with the criminal element it has taken a large amount of time.

 

You want your film to be seen as a tribute to horror movies from the 1970's. So what do you find that appealing about these films?

 

The cinematography, suspenseful moments, and the way they make you imagine what's going to happen. This film interweaves criminal insanity, so the drama element you see in NCIS, CSI, Law and Order is there. But when we get to killings and tortures the style I look for is 1970's. Nothing like Hostel and Saw, not everyone likes horror films because of the gore, but Sorrow was designed to be appealing for all kinds of horror movie goers.

 

From what I've read, Sorrow will feature its fair share of violence. So what can you tell us about that aspect of your film, and is there a line you refuse to cross in that respect?

 

Sorrow has its fair share, mainly because it's the way the serial killers communicate with their victims. They don't know much more other than violence, which is really what makes them enjoy torturing woman, they have grown fond of seeing pain and suffering. The power of the audience's imagination is my approach to the killing scenes, thats wher'e the 1970's style and my vision for the scenes will envelop.

 

Vannessa Vasquez, Eric Martinez

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

 

Realism is the key to making this film what I had envisioned, and the actors will be guided to have a better understanding of the characters their situations and bring that emotion to life.

 

Please do talk about your projected cast for a bit, and why exactly these people?

 

Eric Martinez who portrays the serial killer is a victim of a terrible past, which at the end of the film we understand a bit more on the reason he kills join this emsable. He brings a big fear factor to the film. His look and previous work, along with his motivation on set and leadership makes him a perfect candidate for Sorrow

The victim Mila Sweeney, portrayed by Vannessa Vasquez, has intensive background on the Forensic Psychology and is using that to her advantage to exact revenge on her aggressors, smart but in a situation which calls for irrational actions, she is confronted by detective Salinas portrayed by Mayra Leal (Machete). Vannessa has been studying the script and preparing herself for the role which puts me at ease with the direction she will get on set.

 

As far as I know, the film is still in its fundraising stages as we speak. So what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

Right now we are trying to create traffic on our page by sharing of link and story behind it. TV stations and magazines are our next target. Being in a fundraising campaign requires a community effort and we are seeking and working on obtaining new fans who will help us carry out our vision becoming as important as those involved and attached in the project.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sorrow/sorrow-kickstarter-campaign?ref=live

 

Once the funds are raised, how do you plan to proceed, and any idea when the film might be released yet (which I do realize is probably waaay too early to ask)?

 

We plan on beginning preproduction once we wrap up the fundraising campaign. We have several investors interested and have locked down and negotiated to have a studio, cinematographer, equipment, talent and locations, which will secure our start of production in April 24th until May 23. The amount we are seeking through investors is to have the film completed by September with deliverables. And our goal to raise this money will secure our investors fortifying our production and the future of Sorrow.

 

Any future projects beyond Sorrow?

 

Yes I'm currently editing and doing behind the scenes for the feature length film The Legend of DarkHorse County by Wellings Productions. I'm also a cowriter for Larry Wade Carrell's western film The Sound of Thunder. Along with running this fundraiser and overseeing the pre-production stage of Sorrow.

 

Let's go back to the beginnings of your career: What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

I started in the summer of 2011 at Houston Community College making my first short film Risky Behaviour. Took several classes before I left to Moab, Utah to work on Sorrow. A lot of the editing I have learned on my own, actually a lot of the knowledge i have on filmmaking has been obtained through making shorts and digging myself in books and YouTube Tutorials.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Sorrow?

 

"... she has produced 5 shorts, Risky Behavior (2010), Hell's Real (2010), Hell's Real II (2010), Khodahafez (2011), and was a co-writer for the short film APPosition. All of this after a few semesters in Houston Community College, workforce Film Program under Mr. Rick Harrington curriculum. In May 2011, Millie edited a portion of the feature film The Return of the Prodigal Son ..."

 

Your films never seem to stray too far from the horror genre - a genre at all dear to you, and why?

 

I love horror movies it happens to be my favorite genre along with thrillers. Films with a unique structure are also favorites of mine. I think the reason I like horror films is because they can really get an emotion out of you, the fact that many can keep you on the edge of your seat bringing you closer to caring for what's going on in the story.

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

I know what I want. I'm also a pretty good director, innovative and creative with patience and with the biggest enthusiasm on set.
