Your upcoming film Heir - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Heir is the story of a father/son road trip gone horribly wrong. It is also a unique examination of one of societies darkest taboos that aims to instill fear on both a visceral and psychological level. There's a deeper mystery but that's to be discovered by the audience!

 

What were your inspirations when writing Heir, and how did the project proceed from there?

 

The inspiration for Heir came from my previous film Familiar, in that Familiar was a metaphorical horror film and so is this. I took serious real world issues and ran them through a horror spectrum to come up with something I'm proud to say is different, important and genuinely horrific. I was also interested in telling a more visual, stripped down story. This is the film I want to be my final short as it reflects an evolution in my storytelling craft.

 

What can you tell us about the intended look and feel of your movie?

 

Heir is meant to be a change of pace for Fatal Pictures, it will be a more visual, traditional narrative unlike our previous efforts Worm and Familiar. We aim to make Heir as beautiful as possible from a technical stand point and to do so takes some real talent and time, both of which cost money. We are trying to make a horror classic and have turned to Kickstarter and the horror community for the help we need to make that happen.

From what I know, Heir will feature quite a few practical special effects. So what can you tell us about those, and where do you see the challenges and also the advantages of keeping it "practical"?

 

I'm a huge fan of the practical FX driven films of the past including The Thing, American Werewolf in London and The Howling, so any chance to dabble with that style of filmmaking is exciting to me. It is a challenge to conceive these complicated scenes but also very fun and rewarding. Thanks to the FX-heavy nature of our previous film Familiar, we are better suited to deliver an even more effective and shocking FX driven short film. To say what those FX are and how they factor into the story would be a massive spoiler. All I can say is we are very excited to tackle such an ambitious project from an FX perspective, but the aim is always to have the FX serve the story, not the other way around. The true horror of HEIR lies in its ideas.

 

Your two leads Bill Oberst jr [Bill Oberst jr interview - click here] and Robert Nolan [Robert Nolan interview - click here] - why exactly them, and what will they bring to the table?

 

Bill Oberst jr

Robert Nolan

These are two of the most exciting, adaptable and talented independent actors around, having them share the screen and come face to face as advasaries will be something to see. I have a history with Robert and know well what he can deliver. Bill Oberst Jr is someone I've watched from a distance develop into a true cult horror star, he is a fearless actor and working with him is one of the most exciting aspects of this film. I think when these two face off in Heir, sparks will fly!

 

As far as I know, Heir is still in pre-production as we speak. So how far along is the movie as of now?

 

The film is nearly completely cast and crewed, and if we run a successful Kickstarter-campaign the film will go into pre-production immediately in hopes of a spring/early summer shooting schedule.

 

For Heir you will for the first time ever take the crowd-funding route, right? Why, and what can you tell us about your approach to crowd-funding?

 

Crowd funding is such an interesting and exciting development in filmmaking and we felt Heir would be the perfect project to launch on Kickstarter. Our approach to crowd funding is a simple and hopefully effective one. We are offering amazing, unique perks in return for support of a film that the pledger can be proud to be a part of. Its a win-win situation. Our track record shows what we can do and our cast and crew is rock solid. Our Kickstarter will instill confidence and excitement in our potential supporters, this will be the film to back in 2014, that's a promise!

Any idea at all when and where the film might be released onto the general public yet?

 

That's hard to say at this point, we still have to run a successful Kickstarter first. If all goes well we would aim to have a festival debut somewhere big this year.

 

You plan for Heir to be your final short - why is that then, and any future projects beyond Heir?

 

The idea is do one last,  unforgettable short film before we attempt to enter feature film territory. I can honestly say Heir is the best and most interesting thing I've ever written. Its concept and ideas really do disturb me and that's all the encouragement I need to make it happen. I want to leave short filmmaking (for now at least) with something strong and undeniable. If we get this thing right I'm confident people will never forget it, they won't be able to. That's my goal anyway.
