Your upcoming movie Gilgamesh - in a few words, what is it about?

 

The main plot-line centers around two ancient entities, Gilgamesh, and Inanna. Inanna, having the qualities of a virus, moves planet to planet killing all life. She is set free, by mistake, on a government funded expedition to Siberia. She then summons a meteor to destroy the planet and chaos ensues.

 

What were your inspirations when writing Gilgamesh?

 

There is a lot of political uprising and betrayal. I'd have to credit music mainly the bands Muse, and Megadeth, for their political themes. As for the supernatural elements, I guess I've always had a thing for ancient mythlogy.

 

Do talk about the look and feel of the movie for a bit!

 

It's sci-fi, where it kind of takes places in its own universe. The government is overrun by very strange characters. There are a lot fetishy costumes and dark, creepy locations. Everything is very cold: the weather, the characters, everything.

 

As far as I know, Gilgamesh features quite a bit of violence. So what can you tell us about your movie's brutal bits, and was there ever a line you refused to cross?

 

A couple of people die pretty brutally. There are some exposed intestines, throats being cut. I don't think we crossed any lines, in terms of violence; but there certainly is a lot.

 

You of course also have to talk about your movie's special effects work for a bit!

 

We had a local FX artist, Justin Briggs work on some of the effects. Some nice quality gashes, squirting blood, and of course bloody boobs (hey, it's what people want to see). We will also have Simon Hannon place in CGI, including a meteor hovering over the city.

 

You also appear in front of the camera in Gilgamesh - so what can you tell us about your character, and what did you draw upon to bring him to life?

 

My character was a former CIA agent that went crazy and helped to overthrow the government, turning it communist. He talks really slow almost as if he has a neurological issue and is a real sadist. Perhaps the creepiest character I've played. I drew from the real life Russian crazy-man Rasputin.

 

Do talk about the rest of your cast for a bit, and why exactly these people?

 

There's a lot of talented people in this film. We got Joe Gannascoli who played Vito on The Sopranos. To work with someone who played a lead character on one of the biggest shows of all time was great. Also, Melantha Blackthorne [Melantha Blackthorne interview - click here], genre favorite, who plays the wife of the archeologist David Murphy, who is seduced by Inanna and frees her from Gilgamesh's 'prison'. David is played by local actor Josh Davis, who also did a great job bringing out the humanity in the film. As oppossed to Emily Coleman and Oselito Joeseph who play Inanna and Gilgamesh - their job was to act as inhuman and distant as possible, which they did.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

It was the best set I've been on. If problems came up, we handled it. People got along well, and things moved rather smoothly.

 

Any idea when and where Gilgamesh might be released yet?

 

I'm thinking very early 2015.

 

Will there ever be a Gilgamesh II - and/or other future projects you'd like to share?

 

There could be a sequel, but probably not, unless people go crazy for this, of course. With indie films, sequels are rare. I think my next project as director will be called Witch Hunt. More of an old school horror film.
