Your new movie
Love Me Not - in a few words, what is it about?
Love Me Not
is a story about betrayal and revenge. It captures deep love
emotions with a horrific twist.
did the project come into being in the first place? And to what extent
could you identify with the film's horror theme?
The project came from the mind of our amazing writer Brantley Brown [Brantley
J. Brown interview - click here]. The
central theme of this film to me is love. With all that's going on in this
social media age. We forget the key component to life is love. Our
technology has turned us into semi robots in the sense that we have become
emotionless and we forgot that love is why we are here. And we will kill
whoever goes against it. Figuratively or course.
were the challenges of bringing
Love Me Not to the
screen from a producer's point of view?
The main challenge is keeping things within
budget while still satisfying your creative team. In my case I am lucky
that my director Micheal Coulombe [Michael
Coulombe interview - click here] and
scribe Brantley Brown are willing to
sacrifice in order for this dream of Horror House to work. So in that case
I'm grateful to have a team that's willing to sacrifice and put in the
hard work in order to make critically acclaimed time pieces.
How hands-on or hands-off have you been during the shoot as
I'm more a hands off producer. I let my team handle the creative side
while I handle the logistics of the filmmaking process.
What was working with Love
Me Not's writer Brantley J. Brown [Brantley
J. Brown interview - click here] and director Michael Coulombe [Michael
Coulombe interview - click here] like? And since this wasn't your
first collaboration, what can you tell us about your previous films, and
how have the three of you first met even?
Well my team is amazing. I can't say it enough. The patience and
understanding they have for our projects and the amount of work they put
in day in day out I greatly appreciate, especially because I'm putting my
hard earned money into our dreams. I really can't say enough how proud I am of them and
how excited I am for our future endeavors. Our previous films
were also hits in my eyes. Soundbite was more psychological thriller and
it gave our audience a splash of the quality and creativity we will
explore through our Horror House
brand. Stalk was an edge-of-your-seat
horror that had a surprising twist at the end that I was incredibly proud
of along with a empowering message for women.
to what extent were you involved in the casting process, and what can you
tell us about Love Me Not's
I leave our casting
decisions in the hands of Mike and Brantley because they are the ones who
have to help talent bring out those characters they envision, and as for
all of our cast from all our films I'm probably the most proud because I'm
big on diversity and inclusion so we have been able to stay consistent
with that theme for our creative projects.
Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?
was magical. A creative incubator I like to call it when
I'm on set because taking words and bringing them to life is a experience
that can only be felt when you're on a set and it really does feel like a
magical experience to me.
$64 question of course, where can Love
Me Not be seen?
Me Not can be stream now on YoutTube on the Horror House Media
and also on the Amazon Fire TV. We will also be streaming soon on Roku.
Any future projects you'd like to share?
What got you into producing in the first place, and did you
training on the subject?
Film/TV is a family business for me. My
cousin Bentley Kyle Evans,
producer/showrunner for big 90s hits like Martin and The
Jamie Foxx Show, as
well as my cousin Stacey Evans Morgan, writer and producer for shows like
The Parkers and Moesha, have taught me and mentored me in this business.
