This is part of an ongoing series of interviews with the cast and team from LA Motion Pix’s latest film, “Bouquet of Consequence.” we will try to bring you behind the scenes interviews, updates, photos and videos as we lead up to the release. If you would like to ask any questions to any member or cast, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
1. You’re currently juggling a few projects. Could you tell our readers what you’re up to?
Currently I’m performing at the Garner Galleria Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex in “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.” It’s a wonderful experience
2. This is not your first film with LA Motion Pix. How would you describe your experience with “Dead Vengeance?” Any tense moments?
Dead Vengeance was a blast! Great flick, great group of people. Getting yelled at by the desk manager at 2:45am at the motel was pretty messed up!
3. And yet, you’re willing to work with the team again?
Wouldn’t miss working with this group. I’ve had nothing but good times working with Travis in the past, and the good people he draws to him for these projects are a pleasure to work with.
4. In fact you have been involved not just in one of the leading roles for “Bouquet of Consequence” but actually during the writing phase? Can you describe this?
I was flattered to be asked for my thoughts concerning the script as it was being developed. Travis and spoke on the phone quite a bit, and then Travis, William, Meggie, Christian and I met for dinner and read through the script, with breaks for comments and discussion about character lines and choices. It’s a nice collaborative process.
5. What is your experience with horror? Are you a fan? Have a favorite movie/director? How will this help you with your role as Daniel Thomas?
I’m a long-time scary story addict. Big Stephen King fan. SOME favorite scary flicks: THE HAUNTING (b&w, dir. by Robert Wise), ALIEN, Kubrick’s THE SHINING, THE CHANGLING (1980, George C. Scott), THE STRANGERS, the recent adaptation of THE WOMAN IN BLACK, JACOB’S LADDER, et al.
Good horror should take both the characters and the audience out of their comfort zone more by subtlety rather than shock. Daniel Thomas is both a source of tension and a victim of it; it all depends on the exact moment, so it’s real intense set of choices from one scene to the next.
6. What do you hope the audience will come away with after watching this movie?
I hope the audience is entertained, first, but also challenged. I hope they ponder the gravity of choices. Most of all, I hope they are moved to treasure their loved ones and the time they get to spend with them.
