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


In simplest terms, Inheritance is about the way we struggle with our own family histories. Itís a story about a man wrestling with the mystery of his own dark past.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing Inheritance, and is any of it based on personal experience?


While itís a genre story, the inspiration for the film is definitely personal. I wanted to explore the feeling of being trapped by your own genetics because I sometimes feel that certain aspects of my own character arenít fully within my control.


Inheritance is somewhat maze-like in structure and not always in a hurry to explain itself away - so how much of a challenge to not just lose the story in the process of making it up that way?


The story can feel pretty maze-like I suppose, but the structure was fairly clear for me all along. I think you stake out the moments you know and then get clever and rhythmic about the way you weave in smaller moments and images.


Do talk about your movie's approach to horror, and is this a genre at all dear to you?


This genre is certainly dear to me. I wanted to do something that was a bit of a hybrid, to bring something new to horror by avoiding gore, telling a story that is grounded and personal.


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


Overall, I was trying to create a very subjective experience that would pull you into Ryanís head as he starts to unwind.


You of course have to talk about your main location, the mansion by the sea, a bit, and what were the advantages and challenges filming there? And how did you find the place to begin with?


We really lucked out with the location, which belongs to a family friend. Once we knew that the house was available, the project picked up speed. Shooting in a single location is limiting but itís also a gift.


Do talk about Inheritance's cast, and why exactly these people?


Chase Joliet is a close friend and the first person we cast. Alex Dobrenko and Ashley Spillers are also close friends, so a lot of this came together organically through my social life.


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


Iím proud of the fact that we ran a very tight set. My producers JP Castel and Dash Hawkins along with our ADs kept things running smooth, and I honestly think everyone had fun on this one.


The $64 question of course, where can Inheritance be seen?


Weíre doing our digital release next week (6/15), just in times for Fatherís Day! Weíll be on iTunes and Amazon to start, hopefully broadening to other platforms this summer.


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


We had a great festival run, and we were honored to get over a dozen great reviews from most of the big genre sites.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Currently working on my next feature, a psychological thriller set in the Northwest.


What got you into making movies in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


Iíve been making little movies since I was 7-8 years old. I followed my passion and ended up at NYU Tisch for Film School. I worked at Warner Bros briefly, but my main film education came from my four years working with Terrence Malick in and around Austin TX.


How would you describe yourself as a director?


Iím big on planning. After working as a writer for several years, I have a fairly structured approach to directing. I think it helps to envision everything you want exactly as you want it, but itís essential to allow room for surprise and improvisation.


Filmmakers who inspire you?


Too many to name, but Kubrick, PT Anderson, Scorsese, Cassavetes, Fincher.


Your favourite movies?


Iím all over the place, but I love noir films and crime mysteries. I watch LA Confidential and The Shining too often.


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

I think there are an incalculable number of bad movies made in the genre space. In a time where there is more content than ever, I wish people focused on quality over quantity and took more risks.
