Your new movie Lady Terror - in a few words, what is it about?

 

After intervening in a mugging to save the life of Candice, an exotic dancer, clean-cut lawyer Jake is set up to learn the true meaning of pain as he falls desperately in love with a manipulating murderess. An erotic tale of lust, deception and vengeance. Will Jake figure it out that Candice isn't what she seems before itís too late?

 

What inspired you to make essentially a (neo) film noir? Is this a genre at all dear to you, and some of your genre favourites?

 

100%. My tastes lies deeply in the late 80s and 90s thrillers, particularly Basic Instinct. Iím a big Michael Douglas fan. I crave good performance over physical prowess and the films of today sadly donít deliver what I crave, therefore I have to make my own! Other influences were Nicolas Winding Refnís Neon Demon and an old school Corey Haim movie called Blown Away.

 

What can you tell us about Lady Terror's co-writer Simon Salamon, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Salamon is somewhat of a ghost writer. An American who has collaborated with me on several productions. He understand my genre and is a key element to a Nathan Hill production. I liken the relationship to somewhat how Tom Cruise and Robert Towne work like.

 

Do talk about your directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

Like all of my films, once everyone understands the overall vision, I let them off the leash, so to speak. Actors are free to make the character their own and Iím always open to suggestions. Sometimes an actor gives me a better idea than was in the script and I often will roll with it. Iím working backwards though all the time, I know what I want before I make it, so the set is more of an execution rather than artistic improvisation when it comes to actual filming.

 

You also play the lead in Lady Terror - so do talk about your character, what did you draw upon to bring him to life, and have you written Jake with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

The actor-writer relationship means that this one was catered to me playing Jake. However it depends on the situation. Not all films I make I direct and not all films I act in I direct either. Iím a well-rounded filmmaker and can pretty much perform any role on a movie set as Iíve worked behind and in front of the camera for nearly two decades. Jake suffered from OCD hence he wears the same clothes a lot. I expanded on that as his life was in chaos most of the time, so his wardrobe became the only solid thing in his world.

 

What can you tell us about the rest of Lady Terror's key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

The plan was to cast new school with old school, to give the old fans what they expected from a Nathan Hill production and any new fans some fresh faces. The amalgamation of both created a vision that I felt was fitting for my 10th feature film. The NHProductions alumni was there, and so was some new blood. Artists like Simay Argento and Tritia DeViSha [Tritia DeViSha interview - click here] grounded the film and also let pave the way for newcomers Phillyda Murphy and Challise Free, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I think it worked.

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

The atmosphere on set was like it always is on my sets, people donít want to leave! Ha! Itís too much fun playing pretend and living out the fantasies and lifestyles that in normal life wouldnít be possible. This for my 10th film Iím happy to say was the smoothest shoot Iíve had to date and Iím very proud of it and the people involved. It was shot in an incredible record of time of only 12 days, which is almost unheard of for a full-length piece.

 

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

 

Lady Terror will be released through WWMM end of February on all major streaming platforms, and I have requested a physical release (DVD, Blu-ray) as I am very sentimental when it comes to owning copies of my films in my hand too. Sometimes a thumbnail pic on a streaming service just isnít enough for me. Iím old school in that way.

I can say that the premiere at Nova Cinema was a sell out! Iíve never had so much fun in a screening for one of my films, and the audienceís reactions were on point. Everyone seemed to understand the movie and made for a very enjoyable experience. A lot of the comments pointed out how original the work was, and that my style is very distinct. I mean thatís what all directors want to hear, you donít want to be cliche so I guess Iím doing something right. Iím in my own lane, and Iím not going out of my way to compete with anybody.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I canít say too much at the moment, other than letting you know that Iím technically half way through shooting my 11th film! Iíve also just wrapped playing the lead in Dia Taylorís Disconnected. Due for release late í23, early í24.
