Your new film is called Worm. In a few words, what is it about?
A new twenty minute dark

misanthropic High School teacher Geoffrey Oswald Dodd.

As a producer, how
much creative control did you have over the film?
Well I know what my place is when it comes to
Fatal Pictures, and Richard is
the head writer at
so when it comes to the writing stage he
writes the screenplay, but he will bounce ideas off me and we will discuss
the film in the writing stages , and get ideas off one another. But I would like to think
I have a lot of control but we both don't want to step
on each other's toes at the same time. And I take care of the cast and
crew. We are both comfortable with what the other contributes.
words about your lead Robert Nolan, who pretty much carries the film [Robert
Nolan interview - click here]?
have nothing but amazing and great things to say about Mr.Robert Nolan.
Just a wonderful actor, he did carry the film in such a great way, I got
lost in his world as i was watching it. I still do everytime!
few words about the rest of Worm's cast and crew?
The rest of the cast and crew were really fantastic and were just

"The complex and tragic relationship between an eccentric Professor
and a confused young woman."

How did you hook up
with Richard Powell [Richard Powell
interview - click here] in the first place, and how would you describe your
kind of collaboration?
met Richard back in 2003 at film school. I was the editor on one of his
films. And in post he would sit with me as I cut the film. And we've been
working together even since. Started our production company in 2007.
I've read somewhere that you plan
a feature-length sequel to the short Consumption. Is there any
truth to this, and if so, could you elaborate on that?
Yes there will be a feature length version of
Consumption. There was much
to the story we didn't get the chance to explore in the little time we had.
So there is a lot of storyline we would like to explore further and show
other films you were involved in you'd like to talk about, any future
Myself and Richard are also working on a feature length script for
Look out for that hopefully in the not too distant future.

company, Fatal Pictures?
was founded by myself and Richard in 2007 based out of
Toronto/Canada. We focus mainly on Genre film(s)
How did you get involved
with the film scene in the first place, and did you have any formal
My first interest with film was I loved editing and post production. I
went to school for post production and met Richard who was also at the
same film school taking Film and TV production.
Your films all seem to be of the horror
variety to some extent. Is horror a genre dear to you?
Richard is the head write and he happens to love horror and true crime
stories. I've come to gain a huge appreciation for the genre myself over the
years. For me personally I love the emotion Richard and myself can bring
out of people as they watch our films. It makes me feel good to see people
squirm and get sick from something we created.
