Your new movie B.C. Butcher - in a few words, what is it about?

 

A 16mm girl-gang rock 'n' roll prehistoric slasher with Kato Kaelin.

 

What made you choose to set a slasher movie one million B.C. - and is either the slasher or the prehistoric genre especially dear to you?

 

It's not a subgenre that gets too much attention and seemed to work well on a tight budget. And any campy genre is dear to me!

 

Other sources of inspiration when dreaming up B.C. Butcher?

 

Barbara Bach and Ringo Starr in Caveman!

 

What can you tell us about B.C. Butcher's brand of comedy?

 

It's actually more of a comedy than a horror film. I'd like to think it's the same sense of humor in films like Hollywood Boulevard. Almost slapstick but not as exaggerated.

 

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

 

All of the actors in this film are extremely talented! Leilani Fideler [Leilani Fideler interview - cllick here] had the charisma to lead the film and play a leader of a tribe; Natasha Halevi [Natasha Halevi interview - click here] could perfectly nail a prehistoric valley girl; Devyn Leah [Devyn Leah interview - click here] was able to research and learn an accent which I was super impressed by; Molly Elizabeth Ring [Molly Elizabeth Ring interview - click here] had the perfect innocent-but-not-so-innocent look; and Miranda Robin [Miranda Robin interview - click here] is actually a stunning dead body, though that sounds odd.

 

B.C. Butcher was pretty much an exclusively exterior shoot - so what can you tell us about your locations, what were the advantages and challenges filming there, and what kind of a challenge was it to even find prehistoric-looking locations?

 

This was one of the reasons the theme fit so well with our budget. My dad lives in Topanga Canyon so we were just able to use his backyard and the outdoor setting made it so we didn't need to rent any lighting equipment. Everything was shot with only reflectors.

 

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

 

It was a really fun set. Everyone got along and had a great time. I'm really happy I was able to work with such nice and cooperative people.

 

Your movie was eventually picked up by Troma for distribution - now how did that come about?

 

I met Lloyd a couple days after shooting when he was out in Los Angeles. He was really impressed by my story and then and there he decided he'd take a chance on me!

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

My next film will be shot on super 8 with a 100% female cast!

 

What got you into filmmaking in the first place, and at such a young age, too?

 

Ever since I've known what a director was I've wanted to be one. Once I felt I was ready to make my first film I just decided to make it!

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to B.C. Butcher?

 

There isn't really much to tell. B.C. Butcher was the first thing I'd ever done. I've done four music videos since my film though and planning on doing more!

 

How would you describe yourself as a director?

 

Bunny Yeager of the 21st century!

 

Filmmakers who inspire you?

 

Doris Wishman, Roger Corman [Roger Corman bio - click here], Russ Meyer, Lloyd Kaufman.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Midnight Cowboy, Rock n Roll High School, Supervixens, Lord Love a Duck, Spider Baby.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?
