MIFS: Where did the idea for the film come from?
MIFS: How much did the project change from concept to final edit?
Very very little. Taking a tip I learned by listening to the commentary track of Robert Rodriguez movie 'Planet Terror', I wrote a treatment of the script along with some possible character types, and then held auditions. Once I found what I thought was a good ensemble of actors, I got to know them a little bit, then wrote the script with them in mind. I could here there voices will writing which made the dialog come quite easily.
MIFS: Where there any challenges during production?
How much space do I have? How big is the internet? Truthfully, in many ways this was a charmed project. People that were strangers when it started are now like family. The support of so many people, cast and crew, that picked me up when I was down is the only reason this project continued.
MIFS: With the film completed, what has been the most rewarding thing about the whole experience?
I'll let you know.
