We've talked about your movie Agoraphobia quite extensively before, so could you give us a quick run-down - what is it about, and what can you tell us about your approach to the story, the cast and the shoot?

 

The film is about an agoraphobic who inherits her father's house in a remote part of the Florida Keys, but after she moves in, she starts experiencing all sorts of paranormal activity. Unfortunately, due to her illness, everyone thinks she is just imagining things. So sheís trapped inside her home with this entity.

 

Though it has only just been released, Agoraphobia has played quite a few festivals - so what can you tell us about audience and critical reception of your movie?

 

We had a great festival run. We played at festivals all over the US and Europe, and even won Best Feature at Freak Show Horror Film Festival. The film was actually released all over the world back in 2015 and 2016. Iíve even watched it in Russian, which was a lot of fun.

 

So what led to the long delay in releasing Agoraphobia?

 

It was supposed to be released in the US in 2015, but due to some issues, the distribution contract was canceled. Then, unfortunately, it was released without our authorization. We had to file a lawsuit in federal court, and the litigation process took four years. Itís been a long and stressful ordeal, but Iím very glad that we were finally able to settle it amicably.

 

What are some lessons you've learned from the whole process and would like to share with other indie filmmakers?

 

Not to make movies? LOL.

When you have investors, cast and crew depending on you, you have a duty to see it through to the end. Honestly, if it had just been me who was affected, I wouldnít have fought as hard as I did.

 

All that said, where can Agoraphobia be seen?

 

Itís available to rent or buy on Amazon right now. Itís also streaming on the Binge Horror Channel on RokuTV, and itíll be available on TubiTV very soon.

 

Watching Agoraphobia after all these years, how happy are you still with it, from merely a director's point of view who has a few more movies under her belt since?

 

Nobody will be a harsher critic than yourself. Even back then, I wished that I had more time, more money, and more resources to make it just as I imagined. But, to this day, I still love the story and love the experience I had making it.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I just finished a film that we shot last year during the lockdown. Itís not about the pandemic, but it was written, and was filmed , with all the social distancing precautions. You can watch the trailer at https://youtu.be/-IybzNw1Co4
