Your upcoming movie The Dark Collective - in a few words, what is it about?


Cops vs vampires.


With The Dark Collective being a vampire movie, is that a genre at all dear to you? And what do you think will make your film stand out of the crowd?


The horror genre has always been my favorite genre. When I was small kid horror movies weren’t allowed, so I had to sneak around to watch Freddy, Jason and Chucky, lol.

The Dark Collective has a different story for both the horror and vampire genre, it's not the glam vampires, and you follow our lead character through a struggle, infestation and dealing a dramatic backstory.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing The Dark Collective?


I am a big fan of a vampire films, but also of old school action films like Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, along with Lost Boys, From Dusk til Dawn, etc.

I love a story where characters have real backgrounds, real purpose and goals and walls they have to overcome.


What can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror (as in suspense vs sudden shocks, atmosphere vs all-out gore and the like)?


We go from shock, blood/gore to suspense, to bloody action - but most of all… lots of fun!!


Do talk about the intended overall look and feel of your movie?


The movie starts off creepy and suspenseful, we see some dramatic characterization, then BOOM, fangs attack, we see some blood and crazyness… cops vs vampires. I feel this is just something different with a familiar feel in the vampire genre.


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


I am currently in Talks with Natalie Burn [Natalie Burn interview - click here] to play a vampire hunter, She has done many films that including heavy action like The Expendables 3. Robert Crayton and I have been talking about doing projects together, he’s got an awesome spot in Ant Man. Alvin Smith out of Chicago IL, he was perfect for the part, what I had envisioned. My vampires are perfect, as you can see in the posters… they are amazing talents.


Your movie's currently still in its fundraising stages, right? So what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?


For years I have been pitching out of LA, packaging projects with different offices. Sometimes these can take while to get off the ground… I was thinking crowdfunding would be a good suit for this project. I am even looking into grants as well. We have many prizes for donators, including posters, copies of scripts, signed autographs, custom made posters for donators, etc.


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


The film will be released at various festivals and we have arrangements to place on Netflix and Amazon.


Any future projects beyond The Dark Collective?


I have optioned a script with a Canadian company last year and I am re-packaging that project as well. That is a Good Will Hunting meets Rocky type of project.


What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?


When I was super young, I would watch all kinds of movies, especially films by Spielberg and Tim Burton. I had taken various classes at MATC, taking internships, shadowing pros, but just made it a point to make this goal.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to The Dark Collective?


I have a collection of work. I produced and directed by first short film in 2006 called the Blur Effect. I have produced other shorts such as Debts and Crossed (vampire film). I have optioned another feature, Luckily enough to be brought on other teams.


How would you describe yourself as a director?


I am very creative, I know what I want but am very open-minded with other actors, artist, etc. I love new ideas, so we can make a better film. I am always coming up with new ideas.


Filmmakers who inspire you?


Spielberg will always be my favorite. My second favorite is James Cameron, I love Mel Gibson films and early Tim Burton stuff… my list could go on.


Your favourite movies?


I love Braveheart, Star Wars, The Terminator 1 and 2, Jaws, ET.
