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

 

Here is the official plot outline for the film, ďa screenwriter is haunted by the very thing he created in his stories, an evil doll by the name of Genevieve.Ē

 

Over the years, you've returned to your killer doll Genevieve multiple times - so what makes you come back to her that often, how do you come up with new stories, and how do you feel the character has grown over the years?

 

I feel like she is the most versatile of all of my original characters, she has a story to her and itís fun for me to come up with where she goes next, and I think people get excited about where we are taking her next.

 

Since Genevieve is literally about a screenwriter writing about his favourite killer doll, is your movie in any way autobiographical? And other sources of inspiration when writing Genevieve?

 

It is a little bit I would say ,but it is definitely exaggerated and I would say a big source of influence for the story of the film would be Wes Cravenís New Nightmare.

 

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

 

Well, this is a horror/comedy so the suspense leading up to the reveal of Genevieve is taken very seriously, but once the doll is revealed thatís when the comedy kicks in.

 

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

 

I wanted to keep all of the shots before Genevieve shows up to my character's house pretty basic and normal I guess you would say. But once the doll comes alive I wanted all hell to break loose and I wanted you to really feel that through the lens of the camera.

 

You also play the lead in Genevieve - so what can you tell us about your character, what did you draw upon to bring him to life, and did you write him with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

It was pretty easy to be honest because I was basically playing a weird version of myself. I did write him with myself in mind because we shot this during quarantine so it was pretty much impossible for us to get actors involved.

 

Do talk about Genevieve's voice Alan Maxson, and what was your collaboration with him like?

 

This has been a year in the making now, weíve talked about it for a while but it just never lined up that well until now and I am so glad it all worked out. Alan is Genevieve in my eyes now and that is all I have to say about that.

 

You also made the music for Genevieve - so what can you tell us about your film's score?

 

I wanted little references and nods to the Urban Fears soundtrack because that was Genevieveís feature film debut, but I wanted to keep it child-like in a way. I wanted audiences to know just by listening to the score that they know the film they are watching is about a killer doll.

 

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

 

It was pretty hard on the set of this one, probably the longest shoot Iíve done in a while, but I think it was all worth it because I love the way the film turned out.

 

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

 

Genevieve will be available on Vimeo come 08/13/2021, but you can preorder it now here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/
genevieve

 

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

 

So far everyone seems to be really liking it, and I could not be happier!

 

Will Genevieve ever return for another movie? And/or other future projects you'd like to share?

 

Iím sure she will come back at some point and I donít have any future projects to talk about now, but stay tuned to my social media pages and thatís where I will make the announcement when I have an announcement to make.
