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

 

Hunger is my segment for the third Horror-Scopes anthology and is based on the dark side of the zodiac sign Libra in the Babylonian dark zodiac. It’s a tale about a band who fail to pay attention to the consequences of tipping the balance in their favour in their quest for success.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing Hunger?

 

I wanted to combine the title of Hunger with the Libra and the Locust which was also given as part of the brief, so I basically brainstormed each of the words separately to see what came up that I thought I could work with.

 

Is there anything planned in terms of special effects for Hunger that you can already share with us?

 

I want to keep some elements of surprise, it is a horror though so there will of course be blood spilled.

 

What can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror?

 

The brief for all of the Horror-Scopes segments is that the title has to be the one given and the genre has to be horror but within that we can go wherever we like. This piece will definitely have a comic element in some of the dialogue which is something that most of my writing has had before but not so much in my previous Horror-Scopes pieces but I don’t want to give too much away.

 

Anything you can tell us about the film's intended overall look and feel yet?

 

I want it to be fun, fast paced and bloody. There will be a lot of focus on the score, Will Metheringham who was the composer on both my previous Horror-Scopes pieces is back on board but will also be writing an exclusive song for the soundtrack. An MP3 of the song Lust & Desire will also be available as one of the campaign’s perks.

 

Will you also appear in front of the camera in Hunger, and if so, do talk about your character for a bit!

 

I will be, I will be playing the singer of the band, Ruby.

 

What can you tell us about (the rest of) your intended cast, and why exactly these people?

 

We’re not fully cast yet but so far we have genre favourite Megan Lockhurst cast as Suzanne Davis, a newsreader who appears throughout the film. I’ve worked with Megan before and know she’ll bring this role to life. And Abigail Lawson who is an incredible North East-based actress cast as Freya, another member of the band. I am shooting the film in the North East of England, so looking to attach cast from the North East as much as I can.

 

You're currently running a fundraiser for Hunger - so what can you tell us about your campaign?

 

My first two pieces for the Horror-Scopes volumes were done on very low budgets but I would like to go bigger and better with this one so we have some great perks like signed scripts, props from the movie and even the chance to get seen on screen (this roles will have to be self shot but there will be the chance to work with me directing remotely). There are also various producers perks for any budding producers out there - https://igg.me/at/hungerdarkzodiac

 

As I understand, Hunger will be a segment of the anthology Horror-Scopes Volume Three - so what can you tell us about the anthology as a whole as well as the Horror-Scopes trilogy it's a part of?

 

The Horror-Scopes trilogy has been an ongoing project since the end of lockdown and was devised by Mycho Entertainment’s MJ Dixon [MJ Dixon interview - click here]. He and his producing partner (wife) Anna came up with the idea and asked twelve people that they’d worked with in various roles before to write, direct and produce segments. In each case, there had been a live streamed pickening where the star signs have been literally picked from a hat and allocated to the directors. The first volume was the standard zodiac that most of us are familiar with, the second was Chinese horoscope, and this time Dark Zodaic based on the Babylonian Zodiac.

 

You've also contributed to Horror-Scopes Volume One and Volume Two - so please talk about your segments in these movies for a bit!

In Volume One I was given ‘Gemini’ in which I based my piece around a set of twins and chimerism, and for Volume Two I was given 'Dragon', and for that I worked with chasing the dragon and a polymoph who runs and opium lounge, as well as a message about not stealing from nature…

 

Any future projects beyond Hunger?

 

I have a feature script called Blood & Glitter written and would like to have that funded by the end of 2024 with an aim to shoot in 2025. It’s a much more ambitious project than anything I’ve produced before with a lot of cast so we’ll see…
