Your new movie Hang Up! - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Think of the film as a butt dial gone wrong. Your cell phone accidently calls someone while youíre unbeknownst of this, and the person on the other end who you accidently called, can now hear what you are currently saying.

 

How did the project come into being in the first place, and who gave the initial spark?

 

The film came about when unfortunately, a prior film we were going to produce fell through. And of course, we still wanted to shoot something, so we quickly began to figure out what we could shoot with the resources we had. And Hang Up! was born shortly after.

 

Itís a very simple but brilliant premise (no pun intended) for what limited resources we had at the time. A cell phone butt dial gone wrong, so much can be done with that premise, and anyone who sees the film will understand what I mean. Hang Up! is compiled of so much talent and dedicated individuals to the craft, and it shows! We are all very proud of how the final film turned out.

 

What were the challenges of getting Hang Up! made from a producer's point of view?

 

From a producer stand point, Iím most of the time going to say first is the budget. With enough money, you can usually acquire what you need and/or want. But thankfully with this great little script, with the premise it had, it didnít really come down to the money. I would say it really came down to the right cast. Our location thankfully wasnít too much of an issue and we only needed one, which definitely makes production overall cheaper! The trickiest part I would say was probably trying to align everybodyís schedules.

 

You've worked with Hang Up!'s director Richard Powell [Richard Powell interview - click here] before on numerous occasions - so what was your collaboration like on this particular shoot, and how has your producer/director relationship evolved over the years?

 

I would say our collaboration on this shoot was essentially the same as all of our shoots, plus I might have worn a couple more hats but to be honest, thatís nothing new. My relationship with Richard over the years has evolved in ways that I feel only makes us stronger, to kno one another better and have a better understanding of one another. Only making all areas of production that much smoother.

 

What can you tell us about Hang Up!'s key cast, and to what extent were you involved in the film's casting process?

 

The key cast for Hang Up! was comprised of a few actors I have had the pleasure of working with on previous film(s). So, I knew they were all capable of portraying these characters Richard has created. And working with Robert Nolan [Robert Nolan interview - click here], who is the only face on camera the entire film, it was very imperative we cast someone who can express a lot and emote a lot of emotion without speaking. And with Robert Nolan, we had absolutely no doubt at all, that he was the perfect candidate for this role. I donít want to leave out the always amazing Astrida Auza and Jane Pokou for their tremendous efforts in making this film what it is today!

 

The extent of myself being a part of the casting process was basically Richard and I having a conversation about casting Hang Up! And figuring out these characters and exactly what we needed from them.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

The on-set atmosphere was great! Being such a small and intimate production, where principle photography only partook at one location made the shoot very smooth and fun. Iíd like to thank again our fabulous AD Greg Machula, for letting us use his apartment to film this movie, which was basically exactly how Richard envisioned the location in the film.

 

So at what stage of post-production is Hang Up! now, and any idea when and where it might be released onto the general public?

 

The film is currently completed post production, and is being submitted to the festival circuit as we speak, the film will be premiering this fall! Stay tuned to all of our social media platforms for the official announcements!

Any future projects you'd like to talk about?

 

There are many future and upcoming projects we are currently working on. I donít want to mention any particular names of any projects because names always change. But what I can say is there is a short film anthology we are working on, and Hang Up! is part one. The feature film version of Familiar is also in the works as well as a couple other feature films we are trying to get off the ground.

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

I could not end this interview without my extreme graciousness of working with some of the wonderful peers who made this film possible. Producer Marc Roussel [Marc Roussel interview - click here], who without him all of our terrific post production could not have been facilitated. DP extraordinary Michael Jari Davidson, who has shot and lit another gorgeous and sexy Fatal Pictures film. And the absolute brilliant score from Christopher Guglick. And finally, I just want to personally thank you for taking the time to talk to me about my upcoming film and future projects and always supporting us at Fatal Pictures. It means a lot to Richard and myself.

 

Thanks for the interview!
