Your upcoming Caesar and Otto's Paranormal Halloween - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Caesar & Otto find themselves house sitting the Governor's summer home when evidences of a haunting begin.

 

Your sources of inspiration when writing Caesar and Otto's Paranormal Halloween?

 

Everything from the The Shining to the Halloween series to Dumb and Dumber. The inspiration isn't the Haunted House-series or Repossessed but rather something very wholly unique.

 

With Caesar and Otto's Paranormal Halloween being the fourth Caesar and Otto-movie - how do you feel have the characters and the humour of the series evolved over the years?

 

It's always a matter of trying to take the comedy and the characters two or three steps further with each installment. The movies have gotten much deeper and more satirical over the years.

 

Paul Chomicki (Otto) and 

Dave Campfield (Caesar)

The previous Caesar and Otto-movies haven't exactly shied away from quite a bit of gore - anything along those lines you have planned for the new one you'd like to share?

 

Let's just say Governor Jerry Grayson's annual Halloween party ends in a blood bath that's unparalleled in the Caesar and Otto film series.

 

What can you tell us about the overall intended look and feel of your movie?

 

Think the visual style of Insidious meets... Dumb and Dumber. Yes, I'm insane. That's already been established.

 

Anything you can tell us about your key cast yet, and why exactly these people?

 

The plan is to have all the characters that have been there from the beginning. Caesar, Otto (Paul Chomicki), Jerry (Ken Macfarlane), and their Dad (Scott Aguilar) amongst others. Samantha Barrios (Roberta) and Avi K. Garg (Drew) became part of the sequels and also return. I feel like each actor brings their own distinct quality to their character and it makes for a wonderfully diverse cast. Plus they're all just a hell of a lot of fun to work with. The star cameos are to be determined.

 



As far as I know, Caesar and Otto's Paranormal Halloween is as of yet still in its fundraising stages - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

I don't have star power. And the distributors I work with don't provide production funds. I'm borderline destitute, so for the time being, crowdfunding is my best alternative. We're half way through, and so far, we're exceeded my expectations.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/caesar-otto-s-paranormal-halloween

 

One of the perks of your fundraiser is to participate in every aspect of the creation of a Caesar and Otto-short - you just have to explain in more detail!

 

It's indieGoGo's first fully interactive movie. Just imagine a short movie where most lines are written by the audience. Buy a line for any member of the cast, and I have to make it work. Want Felissa Rose [Felissa Rose interview - click here], Deron Miller, Brinke Stevens [Brinke Stevens interview - click here] OR Caesar and Otto to say whatever line's floating around in your head. Choose the dialog perk and make it happen.

Once your funds are raised, what's the schedule, and any idea when and where the film might be released onto the general public yet?

 

Shooting is this Novemeber and December, then it will be released in the fall of 2015.

 

Any future projects beyond Caesar and Otto's Paranormal Halloween?

 

Fear the Reaper. A dramatic horror/thriller that's been in the works for years. And if all goes according to plan, I want to take on the next installment of the Caesar and Otto series thereafter.
