Your new movie Ace Jackson is a Dead Man - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A man has to pay back a gangster for stolen drugs to save his own life.

 

At least in my opinion, Ace Jackson is a Dead Man turns quite a few gangster and blaxploitation mainstays onto their heads - do you at all agree, and your (other) sources of inspiration when thinking up the movie?

 

I guess I'd have to agree if given that choice. Ace is far from a gangster, except in his own head maybe and he is even further away from the typical Robin Hood criminal in blaxploitation films. A lot of what's seen on screen came up organically while filming and in post during the editing process. My main source of inspiration beforehand was an unfinished script for a film noir I started writing called Man Hunt, along with a documentary called Hookers at the Point that my co-director Aswad Issa loved. A lot of the film is just the mixing of those 2 elements, a wannabe gangster on the run and a pimp trying to get money from his hoes.

 

Ace Jackson is a Dead Man - why the spoiler title? 

 

If I didnít let viewers know that Ace would die, theyíd watch the film with the intention of seeing how heíd survive the odds. Thatís not what this film is about. Itís about motives, decision-making and inevitability. The film is about themes more than the story and character building.

 

In the film you got right into the action instead of giving us background on Ace - to ask quite bluntly, why?

 

I donít want the viewer to know more than what is on the surface level with Ace. He wants money, power and women. Thatís all we need to know. When writing this I imagined someone opening up a newspaper and seeing a B&W image of a thug that was shot in the head in the hood for a drug deal that went wrong. Do we really care if the neighbors liked him, or if his girlfriend was pregnant or that his mother thought he was a good boy? I wanted to show the sex, drugs, desire for power and the poor decision making that lead to his demise. I wanted people to feel sorry for Ace, but not to empathize with him. Heís selfish, but not malicious, like most of us are.

 

With The Trade Off, Scumbag Hustler, Ace Jackson is a Dead Man and Mandingo Sex Addict you've made 4 softcore porn flicks in a row. Would you consider that genre to be your niche, is that the way you intend to go with future movies? 

 

Youíre talking about 4 very unique films, a drama, comedy, crime thriller and dramedy. Take away the sex and they have very little in common. As for the sex, I consider shooting realistic sex scenes to be something Iím very good at, enjoy doing and will continue to do. With that said, Iíll likely be aiming for R-rated sex scenes in future films. In this day and age with unlimited free porn so readily available a click away, there isnít a strong market for softcore porn anymore.

 

Sticking to the sex scenes in above movies of yours for the moment: Some of the sex in your movie looks very real - so do you actually go all the way in your sex scenes, is any of the sex real?

 

Yes. In the past Iíve always said no because Iíve edited them in a way that makes it impossible to tell which are and which arenít real. Iíd say about half of the sex scenes Iíve done in The Trade Off, Scumbag Hustler, Ace Jackson is a Dead Man and Mandingo Sex Addict are real, I dare anyone to figure out which are and which arenít real though.

 

Youíve worked with Aswad Issa on all of your films from House of the Damned in 1996 to the upcoming Mandingo Sex Addict, usually with him handling cinematography and production. How come you made him co-director on Scumbag Hustler and Ace Jackson is a Dead Man

 

Aswad can theoretically get a co-directing credit on most of my films, but with Scumbag Hustler and Ace Jackson is a Dead Man, only half of the scenes were scripted so I had to lean on his feedback more than usual, there was no way to justify not giving him co-director credit.

 

The $64-question of course: When and where will the film be released onto the general public?

 

Ace Jackson is a Dead Man is available for pre-order now on www.fullcirclefilmworks.com and will be officially released on June 23rd. The DVD also includes 3 classic crime thrillers: Mr. Scarface, Family Enforcer and High School Caesar, plus 2 original short films: The Pimp Chronicles and Forgiveness.
