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


Bloody Nun is the story of a young nun sister Sally. She is living in sin and sleeping with Mr. Shiva, when she is brutally murdered, and takes her revenge on six unsuspecting paranormal vloggers or ghost hunters.  


I think the two main topics of Bloody Nun are paranormal investigations and internet fame - so what are your personal thoughts on the subjects? And do you actually believe in ghosts?


I agree that's a very good point. I tried to capture those two topics in the film. Yes, I've actually had my own ghost video go viral in the past on my old YouTube channel. Believe it or not I found a ghost inside a haunted Pizza Hut! Google it and it will come up. Yes, and also YouTube fame was the main reason I had the great Shawn C. Phillps [Shawn C. Phillips interview - click here] open the movie with his very well done cameo; he is one of the first YouTubers I remember watching. All the characters in the movie were based off famous YouTubers in some way, Logan (Logan Paul), Becky E (Jesse V), and so on. I had the cast study YouTubers before we shot the film.


(Other) sources of inspiration when writing Bloody Nun?


Yes 80s and 90s horror classics such as Night of the Demons (1988) and also YouTube was a big inspiration with the video vlogging style of the movie, I didn't really get to as many vlogging scenes as I wanted to in the film but I think I got the point across.


Do talk about your movie's brand of humour for a bit!


My brand of humor is very pop culture! Clerks (1994) is the movie that made me a filmmaker. I always try to stay true to that with my dialogue by making the characters say things that I've heard people say in real life. Also The Return of the Living Dead (1985) was a major inspiration and I tried to create that with the lead characters fighting back and fourth throughout the film and also the dark comedy.


You of course also have to talk about Bloody Nun's approach to horror!


The approach to horror was fun! We had a very low budget for this film, way lower than my last film. My mind set was to get all these really talented actors and lock them in a cabin in the woods with a fucking Bloody Nun! The effects were going to be way better, but our FX artist was unable to make the shoot due to reasons out of his control. So I said we are going to make some changes to the script due to not having the effects and were going to make the best movie we can!


Now I think the place you filmed the main portion of Bloody Nun at is a character of its own - now what can you tell us about that place, what was it like filming there, and how did you find it even?


Yes the cabin! It was a replacement location, we had a big estate to shoot on but a week before the owner pulled out of the shoot! In the movie business the first thing I learned is that anything that can go wrong will go wrong! So I found this great cabin on AirBnB and booked it right away. It was very cool and creepy, it had like 20 chickens and ducks walking around in the backyard . It was a good size property and I wish I've could have used the outside more in the film, but it was raining the day of the shoot. We also had a Ouija board on set, and everyone was very scared to touch it! If you notice during the scene not one person ever touches the board! The actors refused! After wrapping the film and cleaning up I was the only left in the cabin and it was like 5am and I was so tired I had to sleep there and it was horrible! I felt like I was being watched all night and kept picturing the Bloody Nun.


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


My approach was to get this film shot! We had two days to shoot a feature! One of the actors was only in town for two days and I only had him for a couple hours the first day. It was about sticking to my shot list and making sure all the scenes were lit well and the sound was great! I believe in doing three takes and moving onto the next shot. I know my actors are very talented and I just wanted them all to get a chance to shine in the film and I believe they all did. I wanted to make sure we got all the laughs and dialogue in the first 30 minutes so the rest of the film could be a rollercoaster ride.


What can you tell us about your key cast, and why exactly those people?


The cast were amazing to work with! Angie Hansen, Carl J Grasso [Carl J Grasso interview - click here], Cayrem Landt, and Matt Bruzzio along with Joe Schonbrun all returned from my first feature Theater of Horror. Tim Thomson and Jessica Thomson are stand up comedians by trade, but I believe they stole the show and turned out to be amazing actors. Mark C. Fullhardt [Mark C. Fullhardt interview - click here] was a main stream actor and now I've brought him over to the dark side of B horror movies and he loves it! Also Jen Elyse Feldy is an awesome young and up and coming actress.  Shawn C Phillips is an indie horror legend by now. He has worked on so many B horror films and also big budget films like Ghost Quake. So my job was easy as a director to have such great actors.


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


The shoot went amazing! It was the easiest film I've ever shot. Everyone and everything just clicked on set. It was like the movie Summer Camp, I took a moment to look around and I saw everyone talking and laughing on set. It was a good feeling, and I also brought beer for everyone to enjoy on set and it helped all the actors get loose while working late into the night. It was a lot of fun. I'm like a machine while I'm directing, so its very hard to stop and enjoy the moment but it really was a great time making this film.


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


Right now the film is streaming on Vimeo, just search "Bloody Nun" and it will pop up. It's being released on DVD and Blue-ray through Sterling Entertainment on 11/23/2018 and also coming to Amazon Prime soon!


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


So far the early reviews have been great! I received one bad review by a big YouTuber based in the UK, but that's a part of being a filmmaker. Listen we shot this movie cheap, and I think we did a pretty damn good job! I was given the task to make a cheap horror film and I'm proud of what we were able to accomplish. People who watch Bloody Nun need to realize this film is a horror comedy and almost spoofing the whole demon nun craziness that's going on right now.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Well, I can't say much about my future projects right now, but look for bigger and better films in 2019. Maybe a few sequels and also a remake of an old horror classic in the works! Plenty of screams to come in 2019.


What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I've always loved movies! As a kid I thought of actors as the most amazing people in the world! They were truly larger than life to me. When I saw the movie Clerks, I said to myself holy shit, I can do this! In 2004 I attended the New York Film Academy for acting, and in 2009 I studied filmmaking at the Digital Film Academy right in Hell's Kitchen New York City! The Digital Film Academy was a much smaller film school but I truly was trained in every aspect of film making and it really is a great school for young filmmakers.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Bloody Nun?


I did a bunch of short films off and on through the years. I started a full-time job and took up being cage fighter, yes really a cage fighter! I missed filmmaking and one day I was watching Blood Sucking Freaks on YouTube and I said I can make a film like this, and Theater of Horror was born. The movie was completed 3 years later, and everything changed! I had producers contacting me for the film. Once you start making features everything changes. I know the horror market, and I saw some really horrible movies get distributed on major streaming platforms, so I knew someone would put Theater of Horror out. My gamble paid off! I made a little tiny bit of money on my first film and it was a great feeling. To me the shorts films I did in the past don't count, they were about learning the craft and helped me to become a boss indie guerilla filmmaker!


How would you describe yourself as a director?


Focused! Fast and I know what I want! I also believe in treating people with respect and kindness. I've met some assholes along the way so I try to be a nice guy, but at the same time I'm very clear on what I need and want in the scene. Three takes baby, and let's move onto the next one! We got a movie to make!


Filmmakers who inspire you?


Kevin Smith is my all time favorite, but I also have two others, Quentin Tarantino and Lloyd Kaufman all had a major impact on me as a filmmaker.


Your favourite movies?


The Goonies.


... and of course, films you really deplore?
