Hi! I'm Sean Murray. I am the writer and director of "Interment". I also act in other movies, I like dangerous art, and all things creepy.
How did you get your start in the film industry?
I started out doing voice work in the animated film "When Black Birds Fly", which was directed by ScreamerClauz. From there, I started acting onscreen. My first role was in "Indie Director", directed by Bill Zebub.
Can you tell us anything about the movie Interment?
"Interment" is a surreal horror film which explores life, and the afterlife. The film was inspired by a series of dreams that I had during a dark point in my life. It was shot on a micro budget over the course of three months. Reception of the film has been very positive, and it was nominated for the Audience Choice award at the Hoboken International Film Festival.
Can you tell us something about the movie you have be actor in?
I've been in a bunch of films and I learned different aspects of filmmaking with each production. "Sociopathia" was the film which inspired me to jump from acting to directing. I learned a lot on that film from Ruby LaRocca, and her words made their mark. On the production of that movie, all of the pieces of filmmaking fell into place.
What do you consider to be the strongest element of your work?
My favorite part of the filmmaking process is writing and developing stories. As an actor, stepping outside of myself to bring characters to life, that comes very naturally. I leave it to the audience to decide what the strengths are, I only hope that they are being entertained.
Do you think you've changed as an Director/Producer since you first started?
Absolutely! At every point during a production, I tend to go over everything to see what can be improved upon. I don't have a comfort zone when it comes to making a film, so things change all the time.
What are some of your upcoming projects?
MDMN Films next project is currently filming. This one is a balls to the wall horror film, you've been warned! For now, the title is under wraps.
I am also co-writing a psychodrama with writer/director Valeria Henry which will be filmed this year.
"Scared the Documentary" directed by William Mitchem Jr, is in post-production and will release later this year by Nightmare Closet Productions.
Finally, "Black Outside" co-written with Mike Hasher, is in pre-production.
Where can we found out more about you and your work?
Trailers and other news:
What advice would you give to someone wanting to try a career in Director/Producer?
Keep your focus. Don't fight your limitations, embrace them and make the film that you need to make.
If you could work with any Director/Producer who would they be and why?
Quentin Tarantino, I love the ebb and flow of his films. Also Marilyn Manson, I think we have similar views. That collabortion would be a highly combustible film for the end times.
What is your favorite horror movie?
That's hard, because there are so many! "The Shining", "Terrifier", "The Thing", "American Psycho" all come to mind, but if I had to pick one, I'd say "Creepshow".
What is the last horror film you saw? What did you think of it?
"3 From Hell" directed by Rob Zombie. I really liked the film, I only wish Captain Spaulding had more screen time. Rest in peace, Sid Haig.
Favorite country or place?
My favorite place is being anywhere with the love of my life, Valeria.
Did you know anything about sweden?
I've never been there, but would love to go sometime. It looks pretty beautiful. I also enjoy swedish horror films. "Midsommar" and "Let The Right One In" were excellent.
Anything else you want to mention?
For me, horror is a lifestyle. It's more than just films, it has components in many art forms which I enjoy. I make horror movies for horror fans, for the love of horror.
