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

 

Create Your Killer is about Amanda, Adam and Isabella who are at home playing videogames one Saturday evening, when suddenly they find a VHS-tape with the game ‘’Create Your Killer’’ and everything changes.

 

With Create Your Killer paying hommage to slasher movies and videogames, are these things you enjoy in your personal lives, and do talk about their influence on your movie for a bit!

 

I do love slasher movies and I grew up watching them, with Scream being one of my favorites, so this is my chance to pay respect and homage to those movies. I grew up playing mostly Super Mario games, but I have a lot of hardcore gaming friend and I want to celebrate the videogame community as well.

 

(Other) sources of inspiration when writing Create Your Killer?

 

Funny horror comedies.

 

Do talk about your movie's approach to horror!

 

I knew that I wanted to make this movie funny, a lot funnier than my other movies that have been very serious. I have always loved horror comedies and have always wanted to create one, so this is me taking the first step into the wonderful world of horror comedies. I also wanted to approach videogames in a unexpected way and to blend horror and videogames in my own way.

 

Jasmine Martinez

What can you tell us about Create Your Killer's intended overall look and feel?

 

Well it has a kind of The Babysitter vibe to it, but I also wanted to be a bit silly at some points and throw in some gore.

 

You'll also play one of the leads in Create Your Killer - so what can you tell us about your character, how much Sarah Giercksky can we find in her, and have you written her with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

Yes I wrote the character with myself in mind, but there isn’t as much of the real Sarah Giercksky in here as there was in my character Elina in Sargad.

 

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

 

Emanuel Markskog

I had written the character of Amanda with Jasmine Martinez in mind and I wanted nobody else to play this part, and I am so happy that she said yes. We held an audition to find the guy who was going to play Adam and after having a long day of auditions and watching a lot submission tapes, we found he very talented Emanuel Markskog who will fit perfectly. I also brought back Alicia Henriksson for a fun part, she played my mom in my feature film Sargad. Mikael Björkman has also joined in for a very special part.

 

You're currently running a fundraiser for Create Your Killer - so what can you tell us about your campaign?

 

Sarah Giercksky

We still have a few weeks left of the campaign and we do have great perks. You can have your name in the credits, get a signed photo/poster or get a link to the finished movie so that you will be able to watch it. We also have a few other great perks and one of them includes a hand painted poster by the vey talented artist Simon Pritchard. Since this movie might be hard to find after it is done, I would recommend grabbing the perk wih the link to the finished film.

Once the budget's in place, what's the schedule - and any idea when and where the movie might be released yet?

 

We will film this by the end of March 2019 and hoping to be able to get the movie out to festivals by fall/winter of 2019.

Any future projects beyond Create Your Killer?

 

I am acting in a few horror projects, but I think towards the end of next year or early 2020 it is definitely time to make another feature film.
