Your new movie 10/31 Part 3 - in a few words, what is it about?


It is the third installment of our 10/31 series of films. It features four segments from four different directors introduced by our horror host Malvolia


What were the challenges of bringing 10/31 Part 3 to the screen from a producer's point of view?


The only real challenge is getting everything done and turned in on time. Everything else is pretty fun.


How hands-on or hands-off are you actually as a producer?


I'm as hands-on as I need to be in pre production and really try to be hands-off while the directors do their thing.


What can you tell us about the directors of the individual segments, and did they make their shorts specifically for 10/31 Part 3, or were they, or at least some of them, pre-existing shorts?


All of these segments were made specifically for 10/31 Part 3.


Our directors are Michael Ballif, director of the Witching Season series, Jacob Perrett who directed Spine Chiller, Brad Twigg, director of WrestleMassacre and Zane Hershberger [Zane Hershberger interview - click here], director of Force to Fear and who has been involved in the two previous 10/31 films.


You of course also have to talk about 10/31 Part 3's host Jennifer Nangle [Jennifer Nangle interview - click here]!


She's been great. We always appreciate her taking time out of her busy schedule to work on these with us. We have to work the intros out remotely with her in Los Angeles and I'm here in Arkansas. We make it the best we can and luckily we have been able to keep it fun and interesting.


You also composed the score for 10/31 Part 3 - so do talk about the music in your movie for a bit, and your sources of inspiration!


Working on the music for the directors is an absolute pleasure. For Michael's segment House of the Mummy I took inspiration from Douglas Pipes in his orchestral style that screams of the Halloween season with hints of John Carpenter in some sections. For Jacob Perrett's segment The Locksmith I drew lots of inspiration from Fabio Frizzi and Goblin. For Brad Twigg's segment Old Man Gross it was a free for all with fun rock music and a bit of a Velvet Underground vibe for the villain's main theme. For Zane Hershberger's segment Hack-in-the-Box it was another free for all with lots of mood and atmosphere with a music box and spooky atmosphere carrying most of the weight.


The $64-question of course, where can 10/31 Part 3 be seen?


It should be available across all digital platforms starting September 29th.


Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of 10/31 Part 3 yet?


So far we have had a great response. We have been blessed to be able to bring the Halloween horror anthology fans some stories they have connected with.


You also were involved in the first two entries into the 10/31 series - so what can you tell us about those, and your work on them?


Yes, I was the producer of the first two films and directed a segment on the first film as well. Matt Cannon and myself did the music for the first film and I did all of the music for the second film. Directors for the first two films include Justin Seaman (director of The Barn), Brett DeJager (director of Bonejangles), Drew Marvick (director of Pool Party Massacre) and Max Groah (director of Bong of the Dead), to name a few.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


KillingvFloor 3 video game has just been announced that I'm doing the music for, so look out for that in the near future.


There are some other exciting projects in the works but I can't reveal those at the moment. Hopefully in the coming weeks we can announce those.


As far as I know, you got into the filmwork via music - so what can you tell us about your earlier career as a musician, and your musical influences?


Yes, my first film scoring gig was for The Barn in 2015, and since then I have scored over 30 film projects. 


My early career as a musician began when I started my first professional job as a guitarist for the metal band Living Sacrifice in 1998, who I'm still with today. I was the drummer for Grammy Award winning rock band Evanescence from 2002 through 2007, appearing on their first two albums Fallen and The Open Door, and the live album and DVD Anywhere But Home. I then started a band with former Evanescence members called We Are the Fallen. In 2015 I began doing music for the video game Killing Floor 2 and I'm doing music for the upcoming Killing Floor 3.


My influences range from Metallica and The Cramps to John Carpenter and Hans Zimmer.


What prompted you to try your hands on filmmaking eventually?


I always wanted to do film music but I didn't really know how to get my foot in the door. Once I got into the Independent horror community and began to do more research it all started to fall in place.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to 10/31 Part 3?


The Barn, The Barn 2, 10/31 Part 1 and Part 2, Deathboard, Wicked Ones, to name a few.


Filmmakers, musicians, whoever else who inspire you?
