Your new webseries Toxic America - in a few words, what is it about?

 

The grindhouse webseries is about a 3rd world USA. After a nuclear holocaust, social militants protect the nation from terrorists and cannibals.

 

Why a post-doomsday story, is this a favourite genre of yours, and some of your genre favourites?

 

I always wanted to write something post-apocalyptic. Grindhouse with its many subgenres is my favorite, and horror.

 

Has the current rather hostile political atmosphere in the USA in any way inpired Toxic America?

 

Yes the current political and social issues in USA is the prime inspiration. I'll developed a niche for writing that type of grindhouse content.

 

At times, Toxic America does get pretty violent - so do talk about the bloody bits in your movie, and how were they achieved?

 

I just used movie blood and some food coloring for the bloody scenes.

 

I imagine one of the biggest challenges for filming a post apocalyptic story is finding the right locations - so where was Toxic America filmed, and what was it like shooting there?

 

Filmed in the New Orleans area. Most shooting days were at the abandoned naval base. The gritty area with its social graffiti was the perfect backdrop.

 

What can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

As a director, I take what I've learned/seen from veteran filmmakers on set and those on screen. Then add my own creative visuals as an independent artist.

 

You also play one of the leads in Toxic America - so what can you tell us about your character, what did you draw upon to bring him to life, and have you written him with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

My character X (Xavier Brown) is a character I originally created for my blaxploitation project Black History Month. I hope to complete/reshoot it in the future. He's a character I may wanna use in more grindhouse films.

 

Do talk about the rest of your cast, and why exaclty these people?

 

There are many talented actors in New Orleans that I used in the webseries. Some have worked with me in the past, others are new. Toxic America is the first speaking role for several of the actors. Most have mainly done only extra work on Hollywood TV shows/movies.

 

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

 

The on-set atmosphere was fun. Everyone connected and enjoyed playing cannibals and badass characters.

 

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

 

Toxic America can be seen on vimeo on demand here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/toxicamerica

 

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

 

I'm looking for fans of grindhouse to check out this webseries. Looking to gain more followers and audience that enjoy these types of films.

 

As I understand, you're planning to shoot a second season of Toxic America early next year - so what have you got in store for us for round two?

 

For season 2, expect to see mutated creatures, new commie and new social militant characters. Some characters from season 1 will return as well.
