How did you get your start in the film industry?

I started back on Oct 24th 2010. I saw a call for extras in a zombie movie. I went fell in love with what I saw. All of it and went right to acting classes at Walnut Street Theatre.

Can you tell us anything about your movie The Dark Military?

Itís a new Horror Franchise. In a world of nothing but remakes Iím bringing new horror movie icons to the table. This is the first of the trilogy.

How did you come up with the idea for your film?

I just felt it was time for new team of killers to arrive. I wanted many and I wanted strong female leads as a part of it. It was months before I started putting the script on paper. I just processed the whole story in my mind and when it was time to sit-down the story flowed.

What do you consider to be the strongest element of your work?

Strongest is being ready. A film director should never go into his or her film being nervous. He or she should have everything laid out perfectly. All that is needed is to execute. I live for the big moments.

Can you tell us about the greatest moment in your film career?

The release of The Dark Military & Pennsylvania Hardcore overall. SO much work put into those projects. Right behind that both of my film events Freedom Shorts & Liberty Massacre. 7 strong years of screening short films from around the world. Over 1,000 films have been screened at my events. Makes me feel good giving filmmakers around the world a great stage to screen their art.

How did you come up with the idea for your film?

I knew I wanted to bring new horror Icons to the table. I just saw some shadow figures in my head. It just came together. I thought about this film for many months before I even started putting it on paper.

Can you tell us more about your upcoming project(s)?

The Dark Military 2 & 3 😉 Also was just in Terrifier Part 2

Where can we found out more about you and your work?

My whole era is well logged on my website. LOTS to see over 50 pages. I thinks itís very important for every filmmaker to log everything theyíve been apart of.

What advice would you give to someone wanting to try a career in Director/Producer?

Iíd tell them or anybody who wants to be in this business to work a full movie set. Sign up go in as a PA and work a full movie set. Nothing is better than hands on. You learn so much by giving your time. Movies sets sure are known for downtime. That is where you can ask questions to the crew and learn.

If you could work with any Director/Producer who would they be and why?

David Lynch because well NOBODY can do what he can do. He just has his own world and we all love it. So many directors try to take a page from him and it never works. Iíd love to work with him and work in his world.

Favorite movie?

Lost Boys, Rumble Fish, The Wanderers, and Almost Famous

Favorite country or place?

Hawaii because itís heaven on earth. The game plan is to retire in Hawaii. South Dakota and Montana are a close second.
