Your new movie An
American Ghost Story - in a few words, what is it about?
A guy writing a book decides he will live in a know haunted house to write
about his experience but gets more than what he wanted.
Very basic question: Do you believe in ghosts, and your opinion on
paranormal investigations and the like?
I do not believe in ghost. I think if you're scared enough you
will see and hear all kinds of things.
How was the story of the film conceived actually, and what can you
tell us about your co-writer/screenwriter and star Stephen Twardokus, and
your collaboration with him, both during the writing process and during
Working with Stephen is great he and Jon always
have good input and great ideas that help further the story and the
effects. The concept came up when me and Stephen were trying to think of
how we can make a film in my house. Haunting was the obvious answer but
then we had to come up with what keeps him in the house.
What can you tell us about the rest of your
cast, and why exactly these people?
Jon Gale did the
casting and he really knows how to choose cast members that completely fit
what Stephen has written. They were all great to work with and the best
part is we all got along so well and we all are still doing projects
As far as I know, An
American Ghost Story
was actually shot at your own house. What
were the advantages and challenges of this, and did you ever feel your
house might be haunted in real life?
Never thought my house
was haunted. The advantages were I own a lot of equipment and I didn't
need to travel with it all and I didn't need to worry about time.
Disadvantages were my family is still there so I felt bad when I had to
tell them to stay in their rooms while shooting in the living room or
Do talk about the
shoot as such and the on-set atmosphere for a bit!
shoot was a blast we tried to do many new camera tricks there at the end,
and since it was usually just me and Stephen it was hilarious, between
takes cause we would make fun of everything we were doing.

Critics response was better than I could have
imagined. The general public has either really liked it or it's
the worst movie they have ever seen. Which is typical of audiences, there
is never a middle ground it's always 10 or a 1.
