You recently released a film titled Mack Blaster. What is the plot? 


Sometime in a distant, apocalyptic future, the brutal, inhuman bounty hunter Mack Blaster stomps through the bleak desert. On a stonewall he discovers the “wanted poster” of the worst women slaughterer of all time: Ringo “The Butcher” Mack Man. Hunting down Ringo is a matter of honor for Mack Blaster. His way leads him to the down-and-out capital city. A place where death and violence rule. After Mack Blaster slaughters the biker gang Dead Falcons in the whorehouse La Perla he meets Ringo‘s main whore Bianca, who also falls victim to Mack Blasters misanthropic lunacy. At last Mack Blaster catches Ringo Mack Man in the backyard of the whorehouse, but things change for the worse. After an extensive sawed off shotgun treatment Ringo turns out to be a bloodthirsty mutant, who by high-frequency screams suddenly calls for dozens of creepy, bizarre henchmen for help. All of them only want one thing: The head of the Blaster, but Mack Blaster stands his ground with an arsenal of fire-spitting, death-bringing weapons.


Who stars in this? 


Wladimir Meckovic, Slim Gharbi, Peter Keller, Ulli Kagerer, Mira Sophie Walter, Marco Bünger.


Is there a web page where people may find out about this or order it?


We are still working on our website, so we only have the IMDb site and our trailer at right now.


The film was shown at Shriekfest, correct? 


Correct, we appreciate it very much. It's our first time in Hollywood.


Do you plan to run it at other festivals?


Definitely. We had our world premiere at Pifan Filmfest in South Korea in July, been screened on various US filmfestivals and much more. What we are really missing is a premiere in Germany. It sounds crazy but we haven't been to one German film festival yet. You know, in Germany bloody genre movies ususally aren't produced that often and usually aren't shown there. I really love Germany, but the film industry there is really kind of strange when it comes to genre cinema. That's sad and hopefully that will change with time, so that genre directors don't have to move to other countries no more to make the films they love.


If you can pick the best attribute for this project, what would it be?


I always have a hard time complimenting my own work, but one thing I like about it, after all these times that I've seen it is that I still laugh from time to time about some silly stuff in it. Those laughs were actually meant to be :D


After all is said and done now, is there anything you would do differently about it?


You got to understand that we were shooting with really no budget at all, only paying for things we didn't get for free. And believe me we got a whole lot of things for free. So me and Sebastian had to do everything ourselves, sometimes with help from others, sometimes not. I think it makes the charm of the movie, but on the other hand, with a professional team, we could have concentrated more on directing.


Do you have anything new to follow up after this? New projects in the making? 


We are working on a couple of projects, but they are in  very early stages. My short documentay The Black Chapel is on its festival run right now, too. Besides that my  successfull German coming-of-age novel Kaputt was just released under the title Messed Up in the USA. So check it out.


Do you have any interesting behind the scenes stories to tell about the filming of Mack Blaster?


Yes definetly. While training with the spider at home, it showed a very chilled and friendly character, but when we actually shot the scenes with it in the sun, it became crazy active and aggressive. It took hours to calm it down, and finish the scenes. Now the spider is back at its home and enjoys life. We were only shooting on weekends because everyone in the crew had a dayjob, so after the bloody shots Sebastian and me spend days cleaning the sets from all the sticky fake blood. We kind of became pros in liberating things and floors from every kind of fake blood.

Actually our lead actor came up with a similar name before the shooting. Even before the project was planned. We liked the name so much, that it kind of became the first step at all in the project.


The title does kind of stand out, does it not?


True. Thats why we liked it so much. And it sticks to peoples heads. No one can say it without smiling a little I think.


Closing comments?


Me and Sebastian would like to thank all festivals, media and audience that support our film Mack Blaster - The World in the Crosshairs. Only with your help we can grow and may be one day direct a feature in the same style.


Thanks for the interview!
