Your new movie Morris - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A young teenager named Morris dies tragically on a train line, a group of friends helpless to save him. Now adults, his former friends find the spirit of Morris seems to be out for revenge.

 

With Morris being a slasher movie, is that a genre all dear to you, and some of your genre favourites? And what do you think makes your movie stick out of the crowd?

 

I love the slasher genre, this is definitely a nod to the classics like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer and the classic 80s slasher flicks. I think these movies really stand the test of time, I love the twists and turns in these kind of movies too!

 

(Other) sources of inspiration when writing Morris?

 

Itís was kind a real life urban legend we that was told to us as kids stay away from the train tracks or Morris will get you! It was a scare tactic to stop kids going on the tracks. We actually donít know where the myth came from.

 

What can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror?

 

I tried to follow the steps of the classic horror films, but also tried to add something new and fresh whilst also giving a nod to the classic movies.

 

Morris uses some quite cool outdoors locations - so do talk about those for a bit, and what was it like filming there?

 

It was amazing, me and my friend Ashley went around the Vale and Woodhouse over the summer finding cool places to film. The water tunnel was really hard to get to, we had to somehow clear a path for the actors cutting through nettles just to film inside it. Also the train crossing was a perfect location for the ending of the movie. Filming over the summer was amazing, it was like we were on a real adventure, everyone enjoyed making the movie, it was so much fun shooting this one!

 

A few words about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

I just kept the story simple and gave the actors the freedom to bring something to each character. I wanted to try and capture that classic summer horror movie.

 

Do talk about your key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

The cast just seems to fit the roles perfectly, it was like magic when we started filming, everyone worked so well together! Like they knew each other for a long time for real, the film works well because of the cast giving 100%, they totally got what I was trying to make. We were very lucky to have Halloween 5ís Tamara Glynn play a part in the movie too. Very strong performances from all! I hope they come back to do another with me.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

It was hard work but we had so much fun making the movie. Itís was definitely the best experience I have ever had shooting a feature film, I would love to be back doing it again, shooting in the summer at the water tunnels and cornfields.

 

The $64-question of course, where can Morris be seen?

 

We have signed two distribution deals, one in the U.K. and North America. Coming to digital and physical platforms in 2021.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Morris?

 

Everyone seems to be loving the movie so far. Itís been very positive with great reviews.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Working on a new feature film script right now, I will have more news about that later this year.
