Your new movie Saltville - in a few words, what's it about?

 

It's about greed and power - and hate.

 

The Saltville Massacre at the beginning of your movie really took place - so could you elaborate on this for a bit, and what kind of research did you do on the subject matter? 

 

I heard about the massacre some years back and always wanted to do a piece on it, the Saltville attrocities that took place are a little known fact in the history books and you really have to look to find info on it. I told James Person (my filming partner, a black man) [James Person interview - click here] about it so we started writing a script to compare this kind of racial hatred during thre civil war area and its metamorphosis to today's modern times.

 

What inspired you to make the Saltville atrocities the kick-off point of your film in the first place?

 

To give the audience some background on what had happened in the Saltville area 160 years ago.

 

Other sources of inspiration when writing Saltville?

 

The lost causers, look it up.

 

Do talk about Saltville's approach to the thriller genre!

 

Well, we wanted to make an entertaining film, and I'm a horror thriller kind of guy, so is James, so we made it in our favorite genre, but at the same time we like to give a little history lesson and allow the audience to make their own decisions on what they are witnessing.

 

A few words about your directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

Gut feeling.

 

You've written and directed Saltville together with James Person - so what was your collaboration like both during the writing process and the actual shoot?

 

Many ideas, the strongest tend to win, the script is just a blue print, we don't finish writing till the last footage is shot.

 

Saltville isn't the first time you've worked with James Person - so what can you tell us about your previous collaborations, and how did the two of you first meet even?

 

We met at the ole neiborhood watering hole and we would talk about cinema, I brought up the idea of Crawford Road and the Colonial Park murders, and James said I'll film it, and 2 years later we released Crawford Road, which blew up into a big 1st admendment battle, but that's another story (Price versus Barr). After that we wrote and filmed Ten Doors and now Saltville.

 

Back to Saltville: You also appear in front of the camera in the movie, in two roles, actually - so what can you tell us about your characters, what did you draw upon to bring them to life, and have you written both with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

Ya, I knew I was writing for myself, I just used Southern characters I have met in my life, lost causers etc.

 

Do talk about the rest of Saltville's key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

We wanted the best actors we could find and I think we found them.

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

When we're on set wer'e working and at the same time trying to keep a good vibe.

 

The $64-question of course, where can Saltville be seen?

 

We have a few distro deals wer'e looking at but not have signed yet, we do have some director's cut DVDs and t-shirts we've been selling to recoup expense money. If interested contact magickeys1@yahoo.com. Once we make a decision on a distributor it will go to the streaming services and will have to cut sales.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Saltville?

 

Too early to tell, we're still working on the final cut.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Ya, but that's all I can say right now.
