Your new movie Bastard Son of a Thousand Fathers - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Bastard Son of a Thousand Fathers is a crime action film about the drug world/cartel, life, greed, power and the consequences of being involved in that life.

 

How did the project get off the ground in the first place, and what attracted you to it?

 

We created 4 Features Film Co., and it was the second feature film slated for production. I was attracted to it because the character I portrayed, Cal, is so different from who I am and forced me to push the envelope, if you will.

 

What were the challenges of getting the movie in the can from a producer's point of view? And how hands-on or hands-off are you as producer, actually?

 

Great question. We shot the film and it actually sat for a while as we completed our award winning documentary, Lakay. Bastard Son of a Thousand Fatherss is an intelligent, gritty film and was well executed. However, I believed it needed an amazing sound design and score to carry it through all the way. So, getting some of the producers on board about the cost for post-production was pain in the butt, but we made it happen ;-)

 

You also play a lead role in Bastard Son of a Thousand Fathers- so what can you tell us about your character, and what did you draw upon to bring Cal to life?

 

My brother Tirf Alexius [Tirf Alexius interview - click here] and I got to portray on-screen brothers, Rex and Cal. Cal is completely different from who I am as a person because of his life style and the choices he made. However, I believe as an actor you have to play roles that are challenging in order to grow. As Cal, I enjoyed the challenge as it allowed me explore my sensitive side and be vulnerable.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of your cast, and to what extent have you been involved in the casting process, even?

 

We were truly blessed because the entire cast brought their A game to the set. I along with the other producers participated in the casting process because we knew what the film needed, a great ensemble.

 

What can you tell us about your director Lanre Sarumi, and what was your collaboration with him like?

 

Lanre is great writer/director and this film is testament to his abilities. He was very open our ideas and trusted our inputs as producers and lead actors in the film. We shot the film in record time and had blast.

 

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

 

If you treat all the people on set with respect, you shoot will go much smoothly. We had blast on set. We played around a lot on set, but once it was time for a take, it was game on.

 

The $64-question of course, where can your movie be seen?

 

Oh yes, the LA premiere will this Sunday October 2nd at the Downtown Independent Theater, followed by NY on October 7th. The film will be available On-Demand nationwide on Xfinity, Dish, and all the major VOD platforms.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Bastard Son of a Thousand Fathers

 

Iím excited say thatís the easiest question thus farÖ fans and critics loved it. 

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Yes, you should always have something cooking up. We have comedy, action and a supernatural action trilogy in development.

 

What got you into the filmworld in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

I was cast as a sailor in HMS Pinafore many years ago and fell in love with acting. I received my acting training at Columbia College, Chicago campus.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Bastard Son of a Thousand Fathers?

 

I was a producer with a supporting role in our first feature, Critical Nexus, directed by Tirf Alexius [Tirf Alexius interview - click here]. I co-wrote, and produced our award winning documentary, Lakay. Iíve also had several leading roles in short films, features films, and was featured in Divergent. Last but not least, Iíve starred in three Telly award winning commercials.

 

Do talk about your production company 4 Feature Film Company and the philosophy behind it!

 

4 Features Film Co.,was created by five producers and actors who wanted to make high quality non-studio films. The goal, yes a bit ambitious, was to create four feature films per year, hence the name ;-) We completed two, ha ha.
