You recently released a Halloween short titled All You Can Eat. What is the plot?

 

Well, without giving too much away - "Did you have nightmares about clowns when you were a child? Do you still have nightmares? All You Can Eat will confirm your fear."

"In a small town lives an ordinary clown with extraordinary secrets."

 

Even for a short it seems like a VERY short project ...

 

Yeah, I knew it would have to be, because of the backwards element. 5 mins was my max goal. 3 seems comfortable though.

 

Do you plan to air it in any festivals?

 

So far it has played at Dark Carnival in Ohio, Shriekfest in L.A., Killer Film Fest in Mass, Freakshow in Orlando. Next week it will be playing at The Buried Alive Fest in Atlanta and The South African Horrorfest in Johannesberg. It was also invited to play at some fest in Spain but I cant pronounce it , let alone spell it. That'll be in March 2014

 

Is there information about this short on the web or do you have links?

 

It can be found on YouTube here, on Vimeo here, and my Facebook page here.

 

Tell people about yourself and your activities in film?

 

Primarily, I'm an actor but when things are slow and I get an idea that I can't get out of my head, I'll find a way to make it Happen. My desire to act in cool films outweighs the desire to direct them. As a matter of fact, I have very little desire to direct them, if none at all. In this case I felt obligated to do so.

 

Do you have plans for more short films?

 

Not at the moment, but I'm sure I will at some point. All You Can Eat is only my 2nd short so far.

 

Do you ever plan to do features?

 

I didn't until I made All You Can Eat The short plays very well as a trailer so it just seems natural to make a feature. I just need to find someone to help write it and definitely someone to direct. I sure as hell won't direct. Well, I said that last time so who knows.

 

What are your interests outside of film?

 

Well, television I guess

 

Are there any past producers of shorts that you admire or would say you pattern yourself after?

 

Of shorts? No, not really. I'm a fan of Alfred Hitchcock's and M Knight Shayamalan's style, so I like to have an what I call an "oh shit"-moment in my films.

 

Do you feel short films get due respect in the mainstream?

 

Well that seems to be improving these days with with films like ABCs of Death and V/H/S paving the way for others.

What are some of the problems or main difficulties in creating a short film?

 

Money and time. Anything else is tolerable.

 

On the other hand, what are some of the positive or easier elements of the same?

 

Everything other than money and time
