Your upcoming movie Girl Trouble - in a few words, what's it going to be about?


Daxter and Ray are worried about their pal, Eddie and his controlling girlfriend. The girlfriend crosses paths with a voodoo witch doctor and all hell breaks loose. Blood, gore and voodoo curses - Eddie has more to worry about than girl troubles ...


What were your main sources of inspiration when writing Girl Trouble?


Well I was going through my own girl troubles and I couldn't get over a girl who was completely wrong for me. Add her and a few deaths I thought of for the movie and I got the groundwork for the film. So I think I was writing the script in 2010 and it just came to me page by page. Very cathartic, and it was a pleasure to write and now finally directing two years later.


With the film's underlying voodoo theme - did you do any serious research on the subject or are you just playing it by the ear? And any favourite voodoo movies?


Mostly playing it by ear when I was writing it, now I'm looking into more of the voodoo as we get closer to filming. My favorite voodoo movie would have to be Serpent and the Rainbow. The movie gave me nightmares.


As we're talking, the film is pretty much in its fundraising stages - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts ?


Yeah, we actually have an Indiegogo page online (, a good way for fans to get involved in and be a part of the production. But to anyone wishing to donate, there's some awesome perks, like posters, shirts and even a signed DVD when it comes out. You can even get killed in the movie and get to come to the premiere and have dinner with cast and crew.


How do you plan to approach the horror aspects of your movie (as in mood vs all-out gore, atmosphere vs shocks, and the like)?


I'm trying to balance fun and scary horror; this is a light-hearted horror/comedy but it isn't meant to be cheesy and intentionally bad. It's a mixture of mood and all out gore. Gags and gore to describe it the best.


Scott Yokum

Sarah Snyder

George Stover

Likewise, what can you tell us about Girl Trouble's brand of comedy, and what can you tell us about your own personal sense of humour?


I grew up watching Kevin Smith movies, so I always loved witty dialogue. So writers like Smith and Tarantino really influenced my writing with characters. The characters all have fun and corky personalities. How they interact is just fun and hilarious. I'm a huge nerd so I have a very unique sense of humor. Movies like Cannibal: The Musical are a good example of my humor.


Charlie Dreizen

Dominique Spencer

Anything you can tell us about your projected cast yet - and why exactly these people?


I must say I have the best cast a guy could ask for, the lead actors Charlie Dreizen, Dominique Spencer [Dominique Spencer interview - click here] and Scott Yokum are very talented individuals. We have talent like Sarah Snyder, Kasie Dobbins, Leanna Chamish and the legendary local Baltimore actor, George Stover, whose been in various Don Dohler and John Waters films. This is one of the most enthusiastic casts I've ever seen. Also it's not just the cast, the crew is just as awesome. My best friend, Scott Kelly is producing and my girlfriend, Ivana Medrano is helping me keep my sanity as production assistant. We also have my good friend, Clint Kelly, as the director of photography. I'm making this film with my friends I've met over the years, that's what it's all about.


Once your film has found its funding, how do you plan to proceed - and any idea when it will be released onto the general public (though I realize this is probably waaay too early to ask)?


Well we're expecting to wrap principal photography in the winter. I'm guessing it would be ready for a premiere in Summer 2013.


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


I've always had a wild imagination and made my own stories as a child.  I always thought films needed millions of dollars to make. It wasn't till I was shown the Troma movie Terror Firmer that I realized you could make movies with little money. The only training I've had was in high school with my televideo class. I learned a lot from that class with editing and using camera equipment.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Girl Trouble?


I've only been in this independent film community for about three years. I started as a co-writer and assistant director for Clint Kelly's Generation Z. I've worked as an extra in Chris LaMartina's Witch's Brew [Chris LaMartina interview - click here] and Jon Boushell's Fang. My first film, Ghoul Society, was filmed last year and sadly is on hiatus due to actor conflicts. But we're not throwing in the towel for it yet.


Any future projects beyond Girl Trouble you'd like to talk about?


Hmmm thats a very good question, currently acting in the the new Night of the Living Dead: Genesis. I am currently writing a film called Project Frankenstein, a new take on the tale of Frankenstein and his monster. I also began writing this new film that I'm keeping under wraps. To describe the film's genre it would be a combo of noir, western and horror genres.


How would you describe yourself as a filmmaker?


I like to think I'm a pretty enthusiastic director that focuses on having a laid back, fun set. But I am honest and I like to take pride in the fact that I can be honest to people on set.
