Your project-on-the-horizon Gilgamesh - in a few words, what will it be about?

 

Gilgamesh is a very dimensional project. It's about a lot of things. But the main plotline focuses around a military expedition in Siberia that goes horribly wrong. Two beings were created in the beginning of time by the Big Bang or God, whatever one believes in, and they are involved in a power struggle on earth. Meanwhile the military is, of course, trying to harnass this power for its own means. There's plenty of blood and crazyness. And even a love story.

 

How are preparations for Gilgamesh going so far?

 

Seregon O'Dassey

On the most part, well. I'm establishing a crew now and preparing the most basic elements of pre-production. Still looking for additonal investors.

 

The name Gilgamesh of course comes from an ancient Sumerian legend. How faithful do you remain to the ancient texts?

 

Not very faithful. That is where I got the name from, but instead of a king, my version of Gilgamesh is an entity. But does dress similar.

 

Other sources of inspiration for Gilgamesh?

 

Well, I'd have to say the film plays out much like a Megadeth or Muse song. There's much political upheval and social disorder.

 

What can you tell us about your projected cast?

 

NY actress Seregon O'Dassey is playing the lead villian, Inanna. So far, that's the only actual cast. I've had some ideas for Gilgamesh but wanted to wait a little bit before approaching too many actors.

 

From what I've read, Gilgamesh might demand quite a few special effects. What can you tell us about that aspect of your movie yet?

 

Some effects, such as a meteor, are going to require some serious planning out. My effects guy, Simon, may end up hating me. I better shoot the footage right...

 

Also, Gilgamesh seems to feature quite a few violent outbursts. How far are you planning to go concerning blood and guts?

 

Gilgamesh himself kills people rather aggresively - so there'll be plenty of pig intestines and pools of blood!

 

Your last film Scrooge in the Hood was an all-out comedy. Will Gilgamesh feature any humour at all?

 

One of the human characters functions as a comic relief a bit, but he's not in too much of the film. The flavor of this film is pretty heavy.

 

Where will your film be shot, any idea yet?

 

Massachusetts and Maine.

 

It might be way too early to ask, but any idea when and where Gilgamesh might be out?

 

It's not being shot for a while, so... 2 years perhaps? Yeah, seems far off!

 

You are currently also involved in a webseries called Boston Massacre. What can you tell us about that one?

I haven't shot any episodes for Boston Massacre yet - there's a little piece of it in Scrooge in the Hood. If the crowd likes it enough I will make into a webseries. Basically, it's a Death Wish-style parody, that is somewhat serious, somewhat funny.

 

Any other present or future projects of yours you'd like to talk about?

 

No, I think that's it for now. I couldn't produce anything else right now, haha!

Anything you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Well, if anyone would like to invest in Gilgamesh let me know!

That's about it, thanks for the great interview!
