Your new movie Live Health - in a few words, what is it about?

 

The film is about a therapist who, due to the pandemic, has to conduct sessions with his patients online. Throughout the film, we learn that all may not be well with the therapist himself, that perhaps he may be suffering, as his patients are suffering.

 

How did you come up with the story for Live Health, and is any of it based on personal experience?

 

I suffered an anxiety attack in May of 2020 and I considered consulting a therapist myself and wondered how a therapist would assist people during a global pandemic. The idea for a short film addressing that started to form in my mind.

 

For Live Health you've let your actors improvise their own scenes - so what were the guidelines you've given them to make their scenes work?

 

I gave the cast free reign as far as what they wished to talk about. I did give each patient specific information about our relationship to guide them, and everyone in the cast delivered beautifully.

 

According to my information, Live Health was your directorial debut - so what made you choose exactly this movie to branch out into new territory?

 

Iíve never had a strong desire to be a director. This project was an excuse to make something with my amazing wife Jamie. I wanted to see if we could pull it together as Iíve always wanted to work with Jamie as she is a great cinematographer and editor. Plus, sheís wonderful company.

 

A few words about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

I wanted it all to be very low key, very subtle. This is a very simple story that I hope a lot of people can relate to, and I didnít want to do anything fancy, just tell the story simply. And itís here where I must acknowledge the contribution of my good friend Matthew Mahler, whose music score really added to the film, creating the right amount of tension. Matt is the best.

 

You also play the lead in Live Health - so what did you draw upon to bring him to life, and have you written him with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

I drew on my own experiences with anxiety and my own experiences with low self-confidence. I think thatís something one battles for life. And while these kinds of battles can really wear you down, I decided to take those experiences and make something from it. It was very cathartic for me.

 

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

 

I chose these actors specifically because -

One, theyíre wonderful actors, and 

Two, I loved the variety of their voices: Nancy Kellogg Grayís voice is very soft, very soothing; Matt Harrisí voice is very boisterous and energetic; Becca Robinsonís voice is very bubbly; and Bob Rutanís voice is just very direct and commanding. Very powerful. And Heidi Swarthout exudes warmth and compassion.

All of them, they are just so honest and true. They were not afraid to go to dark places, show their vulnerability. They brought such humanity. They really are wonderful.

 

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

 

In April, the cast started submitting their videos to me, and I think I filmed my sequences in June or July. After that, it was all about finding time to sit down and edit the film with Jamie and put it all together.

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Live Health yet?

 

So far, reaction to the film has been exceptional, thanks to critics like yourself. The film has been warmly embraced and I couldnít be happier. Here is a link to all of the reviews for the film so far: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13989978/externalreviews

 

With Live Health being your directorial debut, could you ever be tempted to step behind the camera again? And/or any other future projects you'd like to share?

 

I do have another project in mind, another short that Iíd like to make with Jamie. Iím still working it out in my head at this stage.
