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

 

It's a love letter to horror and to Scream'especially, it's my favorite movie and the one that made me love horror movies, and I wanted to dedicate this personal project to it.

 

In Bye Bye Baby, you seem to enjoy playing with horror tropes - so where did that idea come from and is horror at all a favourite genre of yours, and why (not)?

 

Totally yes, I love horror and we could totally say that it is my favorite genre and in which I feel the most comfortable. That's why in Bye Bye Baby I wanted to play with those tropes you've mentioned, I didn't want to copy anything but just pay hommage to all the horror movies that somehow marked me.

 

To turn the last question on its head a bit, what can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror?

 

I wanted to pay hommage to slasher classic movies. Films like When a Stranger Calls, Halloween or Scream have much to do with this short film. Of course there are many more hommages that are hidden or that I can't reveal, there is even something that I will only understand but surely, as I said, I think it is a short film that every horror lover will enjoy.

 

(Other) sources of inspiration when dreaming up Bye Bye Baby?

 

As I've already told you, movies like Halloween or Scream have been an amazing inspiration for Bye Bye Baby. I have many more I can't talk to you about, we don't want any spoilers, but I think people will see them while watching the short.

 

You just have to talk about the effects in your movie for a bit, and how were they achieved?

 

They've been made by Oxum Fx, it was really cool working with them and we had and amazing time. Also we have to say that the design of that effects was created by Daniel Carrasco, the person on charge of create the new Pennywise from It (2017), Crimson Peak and  A Monster Calls.

 

The recurring song in your movie, was it composed especially for your film, and what fascinated you about it to use it the way you did?

 

It was composed just for the short film by Roly Witherow. Hobothy Tobden brought the score to live and David Markwood sings the song. I wanted to make something beautiful, vintage and creepy, and Roly, who also did the original soundtrack, did an amazing job. People can't stop singing it when they hear it. 

 

Do talk about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand!

 

When I was writing Bye Bye Baby's script I started creating in my mind the kind of shots I was gonna use, so it actually came easily to me. I wanted to make something classic but modern, create tension and start the short on a high.

 

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

 

I'm special when it comes to casting my actresses. María Forqué in Into the Mud was exactly what I needed and I needed someone that special too to play Heather in Bye Bye Baby. I didn't want to start shooting until I've found the perfect girl. One day I started looking some Instagram profiles and I've found Karina Kolokolchykova. Then I knew it, she was Heather. She has something special, her eyes, her look. I wanted her!

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

We've shot the movie in three intensive days. It was really exhausting but totally worth it. The whole team was giving me everything and I really appreciate it. They're amazing.

 

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

 

I've just started being screened at festivals. Our first stop has been on Sitges Official Section (a dream come true for me) and now we're going to Nocturna Festival in Madrid, Mórbido in Mexico and Donosti Fantastic Week. We're also really happy cause we're about to compete for the Melies D'Argent Award at Razor Heel Festival in Flandes.

All the reviews so far have been cool. People enjoy it and that's the most important thing for me. I want people to have a good time, to get scared and remember the short with a smile.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I'm working right now on the feature version of Bye Bye Baby. I'd like it to become a feature length movie, so that would be my beloved project right now.
