Your new movie Twink - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


Twink is an attack against an industry that makes money off of young men's insecurities, need for admiration, and a need to exploit our boys for business and riches! Quinn/Kayden is living proof of such exploitation!


What were your inspirations when dreaming up Twink, and to what extent was the film actually scripted, to what extent improvised?


The film was fully improvised in one day! Twink is inspired by new age internet culture of sucking dick for fame because people haven't been educated any better! I suppose I'm fascinated by the whole 'twink' thing, and time and time again on reflection I believe that it is a cheap ticket to fame, admiration, and to fill a hole (no pun) where self esteem should be!


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Wade Radford can we find in Quinn?


I made myself into these lads, the only part of me that runs through Quinn is anger, anger for an industry that will churn out any old blockbuster shit to make some big stupid bucks, with no thought or care for the garbage they shit out! It comes from rage from business and government who earn cash and taxes off of the exploitation of young people, and how they think that is acceptable? I take that our films are some real no budget fare, and maybe no work of art - but they have truth within them, they have a soul, because I believe in the message I portray through them! The industry now has 'standards' - did you use the right camera? How's your special effects? What name is leading the pack? This is pure backlash for an industry that forgot about the messages and power a film can create, the emotions it can fire up within an individual, so this is our fuck off to such a superficial, patronising, robbing industry!


Do talk about the film's look and feel for a bit - and connected to that, what kind of a strain was it to be the sole person on camera, and for pretty much for 100% of the movie?


It was no strain to be the lone warrior of the screen, I've never been much of a team player, so if I fucked the performance up I only had myself to blame, and that's how I like it! The squat type atmosphere was imperative, it reflected Quinn's mind, remember those messages on the wall were written by his frustrations, by his diminishing mental health!


What can you tell us about your co-director Jason Impey [Jason Impey interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like? And speaking of, how did you two first meet, and what can you tell us about your past films together?


I met Jason something like two years ago, I had been introduced to his Mother in a pub by a mutual friend, and gave her my email for Mr Imps to contact me. We've been prolificly churning out low budg fare ever since! Me & Jason connect on a level that we want to take risks, that we believe in the power of guerilla filmmaking and the message it can carry. Jason has directed most of our films, where as I settle nicely into the producing, concepting type stuff - that's my bag!


You of course also have to talk about the wonderfully run down place you filmed Twink in for a bit, and how did you even find it?


Erm... that's awkward it's my bedroom, we just fucked the walls up with graffiti more than it already was! I live that champagne life style, on a Carlsberg budget! 


Do talk about the shoot as such for a bit, and the on-set atmosphere!


As always, untold fun, and savage madness!


The $64-question of course, when and where will the film be released onto the general public?


As far as I know it will be released to most retailers on DVD in November in the United States, I have no release date for Europe at the moment, but we are currently doing all the jazz of sorting covers, designs, retailer contracts etc - it will also get a special edition Blu-ray, steel box release in Europe. So I'm told :D


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Boys Behind Bars II has currently just been shot, and is being edited - I reprise my role as the nasty cell block junkie bitch 'Darrell', a role I love!


What got you into acting and filmmaking to begin with, and did you receive any formal training on either?


As a child I did adverts and such, but left the industry at 11 and did not return until I was 20, it took a long time to figure out artisticly what I wanted to do, and I wanted to bring back a dead genre of low budget, shock, real fare! I'm now content in where we are going, what we do, and love writing my books and poetry as well (which are on Amazon) - cheeky plug there, init?


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Twink (in whatever function)?


I wrote, produced and starred in my first two films Sex Lies and Depravity 1 & 2, which were about domestic violence, and life on run down estates in the UK, I played a druggie, street hustler called Ethan. I produced, and starred in Boys Behind Bars (2013), a grindhouse, throwback film to old prison movies! The film is notorious for its opening scene of me shitting out drugs, and whoever said romance was dead huh? I have reprised this role this year in Boys Behind Bars II (which is real grim). Other projects include various strange short films, and a nice soppy bugger called 1 Last Chance at Paradise (2013), a film about two boys sharing their final night together at the end of the world.


Your favourite movies?


I have a lot of time for Mike Leigh, and love his Abigail's Party and Secrets and Lies. Other films that particularly turn me on (not to be taken literally) include Reform School Girls, Nekromantik, Der Todesking, Irriversible, Army Of Darkness, Nil by Mouth, The Silence of the Lambs, Scrubbers, Jubilee, Faster Pussycat Kill, Kill, Stand by Me, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, My Own Private Idaho and The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


Odious studio crap, chick flicks, and any old bollocks that they fill with 'star' names, oh and fucking fantasy and sci-fi!
