You have just released the conclusion to your Amateur Porn
Star Killer-series with Amateur
Porn Star Killer 3. A few words
about that film?
Itís still got lots of "I shouldnít be getting a hard-on
while watching these girls being humiliated and murdered but I am any
ways because Iím a pig and the world is going to hell but Iíll just
call the director sick instead and that makes everything okay". And
no blood so people can add "and after all those on and off hard-on
moments I didnít even get to see the bitch get bludgeoned because
nothingís wrong with me Iím perfectly normal, itís the films these
days, who would make such a thing?!Ö.Hmm, whereís that camera my
grandma bought me? Come here little sis. No, itís not me. Itís these
damn movies. Whereís my crayons and paper, we gotta protest and picket
this thing. I donít have any proper wood so weíll just use my thing
as a stick since itís popping up right now having nothing to do with
the exact movie weíre going to rant bad things about. By the way that
director loves his dick, letís talk shit about that too. Heís so
lacking in that area and can only get laid by making an entire movie
around sex because cruising the Vegas strip just sounded too complicated
for him. Those damn Vegas Sting Operation Reality Shows probably spooked
the little bitch."
Your main inspirations for Amateur
Porn Star Killer 3?
At this point having already done two APSKs Iíd say the biggest
inspiration was myself, just playing off of what I already did but
trying to change it up a bit. For example, some people liked the idea of
the victim in the first film, and some liked the idea of the complete
opposite victim in the 2nd, so since Iíve already tried
both, this time I tried combining the victims into Regan Reeseís
Another thing was trying to do what I had wanted in the first APSK. I
wanted everything in one shot but it seemed like it needed to be cut a
little bit so it didnít happen in the first film. This time, with
Reganís character, we got it. Her entire 1-hour presence is all in one
shot. But since that was too short for a movie thereís about 15-20
minutes worth of other scenes as well. But Regan Reese, the main victim/star,
is all in one shot.
Visually I was inspired by A Snake of June, although the main
reason that that film inspired me was because it felt similar to visual
styles I was already working with, so it basically inspired me to keep
doing things my way.
The film's website, MySpace,
Fuck MySpace, those bitches, Iíll fucking kill you.
Hereís our once again new MySpace I was encouraged and pushed to
finally join only for the sake of the film after those bitches deleted
our last account for no goddamn reason. Fuck heads.
But better checking out the site
And APSK 3D:
Porn Star Killer 3 different from the first two films?
Well thereís the thing with the one shot and the victim being like a combo
of the first 2 victims. Aside from that thereís no old film effect for once. I
know some people will be pleased but I refuse to be sorry for using that effect,
I always had a damn good reason for it. This time I just didnít feel the need
to use it. All 3 films were shot pretty much the same way, with the main victim
being filmed all in one shot, one take, and then later edited in different ways.
But with the first I played up the old film look and the music and some title
cards. In the second I really pushed the editing and tried to have a different
look and feel than most films, and added history and back story to the killing
and victims and with this one I pretty much just tried doing the opposite,
leaving everything more subtle. The editing is very simple, there are
practically no effects, the music is different (no singing just a simple score),
and thereís no kind of title cards whatsoever, just the credits.
few words about Amateur
Porn Star Killer 3's leading lady, Regan Reese?
Regan was easy to work with and a good sport. We didnít have to
rehearse anything for APSK Part 3 aside from how fast she could run
while being chased by a car, other than that she had no problem coming
up with stuff on the spot. She just has a very chill attitude about

For the first time,
you have actually featured professional porn talent in your film. What's it like to film with actual
(as opposed to amateur) porn
In a way itís harder, itís kind of weird. No
offense on them but when doing a film like the APSKs with an actual
porn star it then starts to feel like Iím making porn, and I donít
want to make porn. With actual actors or friends/non actors it feels like
weíre doing what I want to be doing, which is making art, pushing
boundaries. If it was an action film with no sex and it had a real porn
star then it wouldnít matter but sex with a porn star then too closely
feels like youíre just making porn and thatís it, so it was a little
discomforting. But at the same time itís also easier because you know
they probably wonít freak out as much when you first confront them about
a movie like this, theyíre more open minded, of course, to sex scenes.
If anything theyíre the opposite of actors as far as sex and violence. I
met no actors that were afraid of violence, just the sex part. But there
were several porn stars who were offended by the violence when I
approached them, so it was probably the make love not war
attitude, which is cool. For the most part every porn star I spoke with
about the film, whether they ended up in it or not was pretty chill,
pretty sweet, pretty cool. Sunny Lane I approached on the spot and she
easily made up something for the film and did it in a heartbeat and was
really cool. So, in many ways, porn stars can be pretty cool, at least the
ones I know. I just had the fear of I donít want to be known for porn,
so making four APSK films in the first place has made me feel pretty uhh,
fucked with my reputation so far.
Both Amateur Porn Star Killer and Amateur
Porn Star Killer 2 were shot pretty much in one night each. How long
Porn Star Killer 3 take to shoot?
5-7 non-consecutive days or 1 night depending upon how you look at it.
Regan, as mentioned, was in 1 night. But then I knew I needed more
running time on the movie so I took footage from 3 other girls shot 3
separate days and added that in. Originally, those were for segments
that were going to be part of an APSK vignette series (or
APSK5) but I
realized at that point that I was sick of doing them. So, instead of
filming several more girls for the vignettes, I used the little bit I
already had to complete APSK3. Then I used a bunch of road shots I took
on a weekend trip with my girlfriend to fill in the amount of land the
killer covered in his quests. And another separate day of shooting in
Hollywood which came from my first day of test shooting (originally I
was going to have it be in Hollywood instead if in the middle of

You have also recently
finished Amateur Porn Star Killer 3D: Inside the Head in 3D. Why 3D, and how does that version differ from
Donít ask me why 3D, I hate 3D movies, that was the distributorís
decision. They wanted APSK3 in 3D but I thought it would ruin the
trilogy. I only know of 3D movies being campy horror films, kids movies,
full-on porn, etc. But a serious, handheld, dark, gritty, shaky camera
mockumentary? I didnít want that. So, I said let me make APSK3 the way
I want and then Iíll make a 4th APSK, a parody, which can
be in 3D. Itís probably the lowest-budgeted and cheapest shot 3D film
ever made, which is part of the reason it isnít finished yet. I wanted
a lot of people in it but it just kept getting bigger and bigger and
then became a hassle to edit, which has been a whole other mess I
wonít go into. But it will be out eventually. The 3D one just highly
mocks the trilogy. It was a way of mocking myself and also saying fuck
you to everybody I felt like.

to the 2D Amateur
Porn Star Killer-films, Amateur Porn Star Killer 3D: Inside the
Head has quite a large cast. How did filming this one differ from
the earlier episodes of the series?
Every time I got
somebody to be in it, it was almost always on the fly and I would tell
them about Brandon and/or the trilogy (if they didnít already know about
it) and have them make fun of it somehow. I spent a year, on and off,
doing that. So, it will have a bunch of different segments in it, a bunch
of random spoofs and characters.

I got everybody for free up front so thatís how I
got some people who normally wouldnít be able to do a non budget flick.
Mainly the porn stars had the biggest price tags, actors are more willing
to try something new for free, but I would just explain what it was, that
in most cases it would take just a few minutes, and it would be fun. A lot
of other people I got through meeting other people and working on other
films and the more people you know the more you meet and it just kept
How hard was it to get actual porn talent
interested in your film?
Some were really easy, some would
apply knowing it was non-paying but then demand money, and some would just
flake, but thatís anybody, not just porn stars. One girl who had a
bigger part that required full on sex and everything said she worked a
minimum of like $400-500 a shoot and I followed with I couldnít pay
anything and she just shrugged her shoulders and said thatís fine. So I
donít know, it was pretty easy some times, but other times Iíd meet
with people several times and then when we go to shoot theyíd change
their minds and I just wasted nearly a month (that was equal between porn
stars and actors). Itís hard to say. I just ask people and itís yes or
no, or maybe, but maybe always means no.
With all the
porn talent around, how explicit (in terms of sex and violence) will the
The joke in the 3D movie is that thereís blood. The APSK Trilogy had
not one drop of blood in it because I didnít want it to. It wasnít
about that. But, of course, gore hounds who wanted blood and gore were
pissed, but it wasnít made for them. So, with the 3D one, it adds
blood in the killings only to joke about the fact that the other films
have no blood. Kind of a way of spitting in the face of the shit talkers
and haters, thatís basically what the whole movie is about, is saying
"fuck you" to everybody who slammed the films, and even to
some of the people who liked them.
I wonít get into the sex part, youíll just have to see it when it
When will the film be out?
Iím finished with it. I was getting overwhelmed with everything so I
took a break from the APSKs to make
Released, which should be done in a few weeks. I only wanted to make
one APSK to begin with, I was never a sequel person, so doing four really
got to me. Especially when I had no other distributed films to my name.
Partly why I believe I havenít finished the 3D one yet is because I was
just worn out from it, done with it, I needed something else, to know I
could do something else. Well, I know I could do something else because I
have multiple times, but do something else that would be distributed.
How sad are you that the Amateur Porn
Star Killer-series has (presumably) come to an end?
sad at all. Thank goodness itís over, but it was an interesting journey.
It will never end though because as the days move on more and more people
keeping finding out about the films as if they just came out. I just
donít have to make any more, thatís all. I do want to do one thatís
like a regular film because my brother had the idea and it wouldnít be
anything like the other ones, itíd be like a regular serial
killer/detective movie, and it wasnít my idea, so I wouldnít mind
that. But no more for me going solo with these, thatís for sure. If
anything is for sure.
you have any film projects lined up for the future?
Warning!!! Pedophile Released should be next up. Itís told in 3
parts. Hereís the trailer for Part 1
Iím also looking to do a couple films really soon called Loner.
Loser. Lover. and StaTICK.
I also, one day, will hopefully finish some old feature films. Sex
Kids Party aka The More The Better should be the first.
Then thereís ill-fated lovers.
And Reality Sucks.
And one day maybe Iíll have a whopping budget of a few measly thousand
dollars and get to shoot I Fell in Love with The Devilís
Daughter and with a few more bucks Romance Road
Killers. We also got a few more films weíre looking to do,
wonít say the names yet, I jinx myself enough.
