How have you fared during the pandemic?
I’m surviving! I don’t think I have turned into a zombie YET, but this is, without a doubt, the worst apocalypse EVER!
What’s been keeping you busy?
I’ve been working on some “stuck at home” projects with my company, Rogue Chimera Films. I’ve also been taking lots of acting classes via ZOOM. This has given me a chance to work with people outside of just my local area which has been fun.
What was your favorite piece of new horror media from the last year?
In terms of mainstream horror, I’ve really enjoyed some of the Blumhouse films that have been released on PRIME, but I think my favorites have been some of the films that we have produced because we were able to integrate actors from all over the US even Japan because we were all working remotely.
What are you looking forward to most in the horror community for 2021?
I am MOST looking forward to being able to gather with people in person again. The festival my partner and I run, The Magic of Horror, had to be postponed in 2020 and I really missed getting to meet and greet filmmakers in person. I miss being on a live set, too. Just miss working with people face to face without a screen between us.
What keeps from throwing in the towel when things get tough?
An actor friend of mine, from a class I was in when I lived in Florida, gave me a magnet as a going away gift. It says never never never give up. I have it attached to a metal letter file on my desk. When I think about giving up, I look at that and am reminded that she will KILL me if I give up. I don’t want to die for REAL so giving up…not an option!
What projects do you have coming up?
I have some plans with Rogue Chimera and Magic. of HorrorWe are working on plans for a feature if and when we are allowed to get together and shoot safely. We are also still planning to host the Magic of Horror this fall, November 12-13 and it will be a two-day festival so that we can screen both the 2020 and 2021 selections.
