INTERVIEW: Richard Carter (Actor/Body Builder) (August 2016)


I first met Richard Carter through social networking and went to December's Camden Film Fair with him in 2015 - See, HERE. He is a bodybuilder and actor. Please, see his facebook page, too.

Tell me a bit about Shooter's Hill?
Shooters Hill still in preparation production. It tells the story of Jackson Lynch. After leaving Shooters Hill at a young age returns later in life to see his dying mother. Jackson's brother is also destroying the family criminal business due to illness health of his mother. Jackson who is highly intelligent and one step ahead of everyone even the police. Jackson's past in London starts to haunt him... the things he left behind. He left Leeds with similar problems to return to a clean slate. Jackson becomes psychotic, an emotional wreck, mentally disturbed and a unstoppable force in London so underworld.

How long have you been Body-Building?
I've been competitive  bodybuilding for 3 years but weight training on and off for years. I've been lucky enough  to be  sponsored  by 3 UK fitness companies.

Any other Filming Projects you'd like to talk about?
I'm currently  doing many viking roles for TV commercial and film, also some viking short films and UK Viking TV series. Many roles in gangster films upcoming this year, but plenty more of exciting  roles constantly coming in.

What advice have you got for Body-Builders starting out?
All film work is hard to penetrate! I can honestly say bodybuilding has helped me slightly to achieve roles, but it's not the only thing. Having a good look different features always helps. It's always important to bring something different to the table. Specific looks or attitude... being positive punctual and reliable always helps in filming having big muscles will not get u film roles. The right attitude and prospective helps.

Anything else you would like to add? Career Advice? Personal Advice?
Always do all film work proposed to you paid unpaid or expenses only. It helps to gain mass experience and certainly make new friends! Never expect to much and it's not all bright lights and stardom! It's a lot of work sleepless  night and long hours! It's like building blocks the more you build the higher you go

Richard Cater in Shooter's Hill... Coming Soon!

Interview: Michael Haberfelner ([re]SearchMyTrash) (Screenwriter) (July 2017)

I got to question Screenwriter and owner of www.searchmytrash.com in Michael Haberfelner. He is currently going to be working with USA Actress, Debra Lamb. He also collaborates with actress Eirian Cohen and actor Laurence Harvey. His screen writer credits include,  A Killer Conversation (2015) and Talk of the Dead (2017).
Tell me about any upcoming Projects you are working on?
Well, the next one is the big one, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES, the first feature film I’m going to produce. We start shooting in a little over a week, so all buzzing with excitement and knee-deep in preparations ;) The story is basically a woman welcoming her ex into her house, totally oblivious to the fact that he’s actually a zombie, and her husband, who has killed that very same ex in the first place, is understandably less than thrilled. Eirian Cohen stars as the woman, with Rudy Barrow being her husband, Rami Hilmi the zombie ex, and we have guest appearances by US horror icons Debra Lamb and Lynn Low…

Review: "I'm A Gun!" (2017) - Directed by Mikeal Burgin!! (October 2017)

Intense short film I'm A Gun (2017) is directed, written and edited by Mikeal Burgin. It's a ten minute film narrated by a Hitman who is killing off his Prey in the City. It has got a slight Tarantino feel in it's approach with a bit of dark humor and obvious Violence! It features a few twists here and there - featuring some bad language and intense drama scenes, too! For Mature Audiences, Only!

I really enjoyed I'm A Gun! The soundtrack was killer towards the end and keeps you on your toes. Burgin is a crafty film maker dipping into genres which takes the audience on a wild, unpredictable ride throughCinema Craftiness!

Plot:"A gun-for-hire accepts a shady contract targeting a beautiful and deadly woman. When the mark's disabled brother gets in the way, the job quickly turns into a desperate fight for survival inside a den of madness and brutality.".

RIP Debra Mayer: (1969 - 2015) (May 2015)

It's a sad day, there is a rumor of the passing of Full Moon Entertainment actresses passing. She played in Blood Dolls (1999), Voodoo Academy (2002) and other films. 
Director Charles Band posted the following on Facebook: "I am so saddened by the news of Debra Mayer passing away. She was a very talented actress and extremely devoted to her craft. Debra was in several Full Moon films and I have many fond memories of her excellent work in Dr. Moreau’sHouse of Pain and especially Blood Dolls. She was extremely devoted to her career and left behind an impressive body of work that many admire, and I only hope she is able to somehow observe the outpouring of love and affection for the films she was in and the characters she played by the many fans who followed her. May she truly rest in peace.".

Another friend of hers, J.R. Bookwalter also wrote on the social media site: "Stunned to hear about the sudden passing of Debra Mayer, who I first met during post-production on…
