Your upcoming film Heir - in a few words, what is it about?


It's a horror film, with dramatic elements. It's about a story of a father/son road trip gone horribly wrong.


Logline: A touching tale of father and son.


After connecting with a stranger of similar interests online, Gordon and his young son Paul embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge a secret passion. Before the day ends a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned. Heir is a monster movie unlike any other, it is a bleak and fantastical examination of one of society's darkest taboos that aims to stimulate the mind and wrench the gut with equal power.


How did the project fall together in the first place, and what did you find inspiring about the story?


The story came together when Richard [Richard Powell interview - click here] and I set out to produce our next and final short film. Richard was explaining and breaking down to me this idea for a short film, entitled Heir. I was pretty blown away at how powerful and intelligent I found it to be. We both felt this was a great short film to go out with, as well as giving ourselves new challenges by: Using Kickstarter, working with Bill Oberst Jr. [Bill Oberst jr interview - click here], changing our style.


As far as I know, Heir is limited to a mere handful of locations - so how do you go about location-scouting to keep the locations interesting, practical and whatnot?


The film requires pretty standard locations, so it shouldn't be too difficult to acquire them. I ask around, talk to my friends and/or family, and if I still needed to acquire another location, I'd branch out by networking and researching.


From what I know, Heir will feature quite a few practical special effects. So what can you tell us about those, and where do you see the challenges and also the advantages of keeping it "practical"?


Heir will definitely have some extraordinary and remarkable effects, all done practically. From the tremendous team that brought you the critically acclaimed film Familiar, The Butcher Shop, consisting of Ryan Louagie and Carlos Henriques. I feel the challenges of keeping the effects practical is the time restraint, I'm always worried about making our day, and getting all of our shots completed on the budgeted time we have. As well as of course the finances for the practical effects. The advantages are the authentic look and feel you get when you create your effects practically. I'm never worried when I'm working with The Butcher Shop, they do some fabulous practical special effects work.


As far as I know, you have cast Heir's two leads Bill Oberst jr [Bill Oberst jr interview - click here] and Robert Nolan [Robert Nolan interview - click here] - why exactly them, and what will they bring to the table?


Bill Oberst jr

Robert Nolan

I feel both actors will bring their tremendous talent to the screen, having worked with Robert Nolan now on two short films Worm (2010) & Familiar (2012), I am certain he will bring what we need him to bring to the table for his role in Heir. Robert is a very talented and gifted actor who pushes himself to far lengths to achieve and deliver what he feels he needs to convey in the character he is playing. I am very honored to be working with a talent such as Bill Oberst Jr. and from what I've seen, I have no doubt he will deliver yet again what could be another Emmy-winning performance. I am very honored and proud to have Mr. Robert Nolan and Bill Oberst Jr. be a part of what I feel will be a very special film.


As far as I know, Heir is still in pre-production as we speak. So how far along is the movie as of now?


The script is completed, most of the cast and crew have been attached. There are still a few things we still need to lock into place, such as a couple of locations as well as some the budget.


For Heir you will for the first time ever take the crowd-funding route, right? Why, and what can you tell us about your fundraiser?


This will mark the first time Fatal Pictures will be using the assistance of crowd funding, via Kickstarter, in order for us to raise the budget for this film. We thought that the crowd funding route was definitely a great opportunity to attain the budget we feel we would need. Also this is a great way to connect further with our fans and give them the opportunity to help Fatal Pictures create what will be our final short film, before stepping into the world of feature films. There will be some phenomenal and very original perks up for grabs. It's also a great opportunity to obtain memorabilia from our previous films of Fatal Pictures.


Any idea at all when and where the film might be released onto the general public yet (and I know it might be waaaay too early to ask)?


We are hoping the film will be touring the film festival circuit sometime in 2014, and of course eventually on DVD etc.

You plan for Heir to be your final short - why is that then, and any future (feature) projects beyond Heir?


Heir stands to be Fatal Pictures last short film before we move onto producing feature length films. Mainly because we would like to produce full length films that will go on to acquire proper distribution and be available for the masses, but we feel we have one more short film to produce before our debut feature film.
