Your upcoming movie Lynchfield - in a few words, what is it
deals with the consequences of a world that lives on its wants and dies by
its needs. There’s also
zombies and some dick and fart jokes.
How does your webseries The Lynchfield Stops
tie in with the movie?
Lynchfield Stops doesn’t tie into the movie chronologically
speaking. The web series was meant as a vessel to introduce the Lynchfield
concept to the public. I wanted to see if people would “get it”.
Having been a FedEx driver
yourself for quite some time, to what extent is the movie based on your
own experiences (apart from the zombie apocalypse I hope)?
the things that are based on real life you wouldn’t believe, and the
fake stuff isn’t the 11th episode of the web series (Love
Potion Number 2). Actually while working at FedEx I fought zombies every
day… consumers. The blatant filth of the world that wander aimlessly
with only one thought on their mind… themselves. You’d see it in
traffic and in stores. People caring too much about themselves and their
precious “stuff” that they don’t pay attention to the world around
them. I also delivered shit sometimes. Oh… and just to let the public
know… the word “FRAGILE” on a box really does translate into “kick
the shit outta me” in delivery speak.
sources of inspiration for Lynchfield?
also wanted to create an over the top GWAR/Evil Dead like gore fest that
makes people laugh and wonder why they are doing so.
you tell us about the intended look and feel of your movie?
a Spaghetti Western with a Night of the Living Dead backdrop?
movies do suggest a fair share of blood and guts almost by definition - so
what can you tell us about your projected gore effects and the like?
a raincoat if you watch this flick. We will not focus on torture porn
violence. We want to use a comedic approach. Think of it like Dirty Harry
talk about Lynchfield's brand of humour for a bit!
The humor of
Lynchfield is very unique. You can’t explain Lynchfield’s humor… You
just have to experience it. But I can say that
no punches are pulled and absolutely no fucks were given in regard
to mass acceptance.
can you tell us about your key cast and crew, and why exactly these
is it’s own world. The characters in Lynchfield must be over the top and
diverse, yet they must reflect that flawed aspect of society.
As far as I know, Lynchfield is still in
its fundraising stages - so what can you tell us about your fundraising
fundraising efforts are just that… efforts. This movie will be made one
way or another. So far, we have had positive responses but have not hit
the mark. We thought about selling crack for the money, but we just smoked
it all instead.
Any future projects beyond Lynchfield?
Well, I am involved
with the documentary Gary’s Nuts: A Documentary. That film is in
the can and looking for distribution. There are more projects, but
I tend to focus on the task at hand.
got you into the filmworld in the first place, and did you receive any
formal training of the subject?
was Ghostbusters that made me want to make movies. But it was the
Friday the 13th-franchise that made me love movies. After I
graduated from Full Sail for film and video production I went on the quest
to make movies. The quest is still shit kicking my ego on a daily basis.
What can you tell us
about your filmwork prior to Lynchfield?
was on an episode of Jerry Springer, I’ve worked on projects with Rich
Robinson (director of Marcus & The Graveyard Feeder). I dunno
really… I just bounce around hoping something sticks… and not up my
writers, whatever else who inspire you?
comes from too many things to list off, but beer is one of them.
Feeling lucky ?
