Q: How did you become interested in horror movies and when?
I became interested in horror movies when I was 5 years old. The movie that intrigued me the most about the horror genre was the "Subspecies" movies! Those were the first horror films that I saw when I was young and that's when I knew that I wanted to be an actress and write and direct my own scripts!
Q: What are some of your favorite films and what influenced you into wanting to make your own?
Actually, watching the "Subspecies" movies influenced me into wanting to make my own films! I just decided one day that I was going to make movies and that I was going to be an actress. I knew at a very young age that's what I was going to do with my life! And I was inspired by the actress Denice Duff on the Subspecies series! I actually met her 3 years ago at the Frightvision Convention! She was Terrific and we're still very good friends till this day! J Some of my all-time favorite horror movies would have to be "American Nightmare," "Subspecies" series, "The Evilmaker," "Return of the Living Dead," "Witchouse 3: Demon Fire," "Halloween," "Friday the 13th," "Nightmare on Elm Street," "Sleepaway Camp," and sooooooo many others!!! If I listed them all, it would fill up this entire page! J
Q: What movies have you worked on so far?
Well, I have completed 2 films already. The one is entitled "Blood Beneath the Moon" and it stars myself, Lilith Stabs (Cremains, Malefic, Zombiegeddon), Kreg Vetovitz, Julie Saad, and some other locals from Ohio! Then, I just recently finished the movie "Slice 'N' Dice," which stars actress Stephanie Beaton (Witchcraft 9-11, The Bagman, The Evilmaker), myself, and other terrific locals! Both shoots were very hectic, but very fun to work on!
Q: Where can someone interested see your work?
Well, my movie "Blood Beneath the Moon" will be available to but off my web site very soon! And a lot of my work will also be shown at conventions and my fans can purchase merchandise from me as well!
Q: What are you hoping to do a few years down the road? Are you currently working on anything?
I hope to make a film that stars Debbie Rochon, Denice Duff, Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Tina Krause, Stephanie Beaton, Jasi Lanier, and Ivy Blue! That would be Great! At the moment, I am working on a vampire script, which I will be shooting this August! You can check out my site for more info!
Q: Do you find it hard to get the capital to get your ideas turned into a movie?
Yes, I do find it difficult to get the money to make movies, especially since I don't have any investors. My parents and myself are the only people putting up the money to make my films at this moment in time.
Q: What actors and actresses have you worked with thus far?
The only two actresses that I have worked with to this date are Stephanie Beaton and Countess Lilith Stabs. Working with both of them was Great and it was a fantastic experience! Steph (Beaton) is an Amazing actress! Wait till you see her act in my film "Slice 'N' Dice!"
Q: Do you have a dream project you'd like to work on?
My dream project would be to work with above actresses I mentioned before! (Debbie Rochon, Denice Duff, Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Tina Krause, Stephanie Beaton, Jasi Lanier, and Ivy Blue!) They are all good friends of mine and I hope that one day I will be able to work with all of them on a project! Let me tell you, that would be an incredible movie! J
Q: What directors have impressed you the most? the least?
Some of the directors that have impressed me the most would have to be George Romero, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Dario Argento, and Stephanie Beaton! Steph's an excellent female director! But I enjoy most of the directors that have films out today!
Q: Has your age helped or hindered you at times in your pursuits?
I think it goes both ways. Sometimes a lot of people think it's amazing that I'm only 16 years old and that I have achieved so much in my career already. And sometimes I'm not taken seriously be people because of how young I am. But I really do love what I'm doing no matter what anyone says!
Q: Anything else you'd care to add? movies to hype? website info people need?
First of all, I want to thank all of my fans and friends for supporting me so much! You guys ROCK!!! J And my movie "Blood Beneath the Moon" will be available for everyone to purchase very soon! My other movie "Slice 'N' Dice" is still in post production, but be sure to check out my web site for all the latest updates. You can get in contact with me through my site too! And finally, thank you for taking the time to interview me! It's been fun!
