Now that his celebrated and award winning short horror-comedy, Foodie, festival circuit run is complete, director Christopher G. Moore is working on his next short, Disengaged. Every independent effort is ripe with its own challenges from production to casting talent to selecting music to editing to releasing. Each step requires forethought and planning; some things go as planned, others require the film maker to be flexible prepared to scramble at a moments notice to plan B. And many independent features, long form or short, also continually deal with the price tag, paying for the film itself – financing the dream.
Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sibling podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.
Director Christopher G. Moore, buried in the post production work on his follow up short Disengaged, joins Doc to discuss his journey in getting Foodie completed and in front of audiences through festivals and screenings. He shares how he became attached to the project and how one unexpected long shoot has the team scrambling to find a new location at the last minute – and how he triumphed over those hurdles. He also teases his latest project Disengaged with a peak into the film’s premise and a few of its secrets. He is also running an IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign to secure the funds to complete the editing of the film.
