The Posthuman Project at deadCENTER
First off, tell me a bit about yourself and your role in the movie.
I make movies, love to collaborate with others and occasionally win an Emmy.
I am the director, one of the producers, editor, and vfx supervisor of the film.
How would you describe The Posthuman Project to people?
What we set out to create is a teen superhero film with the heart of a 80s John Hughes movie and the flare of JJ Abrams. Oh and let’s go ahead and o that on a micro budget!
Why should one see it?
It’s soundtrack and indie vibe set it apart from any other superhero film.
What was the most challenging aspect you had in the production?
It was a massive challenge to create a superhero film on a micro budget. The single hardest part was the VFX for sure. We had over 530 shots that needed VFX work.
What was the best part about filming in Oklahoma?
We live in the heartland. The people are great here, and when you share you passion about a project they are very supportive of it.
What scenes were fun for everyone to film?
Just about the whole thing was a ton of work, but also a ton of fun! I’d say if I can single any part out would be when we shot in Quartz Mountain OK. We were there for 6 days as a crew and most of our phones didn’t work so basically we were all out there just focused on the task at hand… it was like being a movie making camp!
What are your thoughts on the deadCENTER Film Festival?
Love DeadCENTER! Making a homegrown superhero film was a big part of who we are and what we’re about, so of course we’re very excited to have our world premiere at the festival!
Anything else you wish to add?
This film is my feature directoral debut. Oklahoma has an insanely talented growing group of filmmakers and it was a privilege for me to work with them on this film.
