Your upcoming film My Reprisal - in a few words, what is it going to be about?


It’s about being driven to the very edge. Finding yourself in situations you really don’t want to be in and can’t seem to get out of. It’s about putting the viewer right into the front seat of an event that haunts every mother and father. And its about choosing to overcome your burdens or letting them eat you alive.


My Reprisal's two-part structure - in a nutshell, why choose that approach?


I don’t usually write small concepts. I love simplicity but I like a lot of it. My real passion is in epic fantasy films. I downsized in terms of story for this particular concept. It was you could say “a stepping stone” to much bigger things to come.


What were your inspirations when writing My Reprisal, and how close to your heart are some of the topics your film touches?


The film's extremely personal to me. All the topics are close to the chest for me. You could say most of it is fact with a decent sprinkling of fiction to make it interesting. I won’t say what happened to me and what didn’t. I’d rather leave that up to the viewers to decide what was real and what wasn’t. Gotta give them something to do. Also, my animation/writing mentor insisted that I write something. He apparently liked something of mine he had read and said I need to learn to write.


What can you tell us about your writing partner Russ Welsh [Russ Welsh interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


I was introduced to Russ by my animation/writing mentor. He insisted that I take an interest in Russ. When I did, I found a person that had been to hell and back. I also found a person that had a deep desire for writing fantastic and fun films. We quickly became friends and I asked him to come on board and help me write my concept.


Script in hand, how did the project fall together in the first place?


Word of mouth.


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


I really wanna start with warm colours and have the film eventually end up in black and white through slow loss of colour, but I want it to be a subtle change. Nothing drastic to put the audience off.


Do talk about your key cast and crew for a bit, and how did you all come together?


Australia is the biggest Island in the world, but it is an island none the less. Eventually everyone in this line of work hears about everyone. I basically just did a lot of my own personal networking and did some work here and there with a few friends. Then I started my own projects, met new talents and through in-depth conversation, I slowly started adding people to the mix. Now we have a very successful industry professional that has worked on many well known films and jack and we are working together to get the film off the ground. Anything this large and complex CAN take a little while.


As far as I know, the film is still in pre-production - so what's the schedule, and any idea when the film might be released yet (and yes, I do know it's waaay too early to ask)?


Too early to tell.


Any future projects beyond My Reprisal?


As I said earlier, this is merely a taste of what’s to come.


What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


From an early age I told lots of lies. Dad told me I should become a politician, but the idea of being hated and forgotten did not appeal to me. The idea of being able to tell stories and be liked for it however was extremely appealing. I begged my mother to send me to film school and she did. I use to skip high school classes to go and film my own stories. It quickly became clear to me that I was right where I belong. I actually failed film and television at highschool because I was off doing my own films. So eventually even training became boring. I just went my own route and it's been working out pretty good so far.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to My Reprisal?


I had 6 months left of animation training and my father became ill with cancer. I threw in the towel and got stuck back into making films. He died and I never got to show him my passion and my abilities and say “this is what I do instead of politics”. He made it clear he was very proud of me for doing what I love and not giving a stuff what anyone else thinks or says. I've been making short films ever since. I am currently working on 7 short films so far this year. An anthology and a couple of others projects I have latched onto.


How would you describe yourself as a filmmaker?


Passionate. I’ve been told at times I can be too flexible and I couldn’t agree more. I do however insist on quality.


Filmmakers who inspire you?


Stanley Kubrick, David Fincher, Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino.
