“Combat Nuns All Or Nothing” is about a crime fighting Nun (Emmy Nominated, Dot Marie Jones) who is making her weekly confession to a Priest.
My ambition is to get Combat Nuns into an 8-episode TV/Cable series!
One of the pleasant surprises I found out during our shoot was that our lead Nun, Dot Marie Jones can drive a motorcycle! So, we put her on a Harley-Davidson, gave her some lines to improv for a Public Service Announcement and we shot it in an alley behind the studio. You can see that scene at the end of the movie, and it’s also in the trailer!
Combat Nuns is for everyone!
Distributors should buy Combat Nuns because who doesn’t want to see a crime fighting Nun?
How would I specify my film? Chaos! What characterizes my film? Controlled Chaos!
1. Why did I become a filmmaker? Because I’m a storyteller, and I enjoy telling the best story possible. I like to control the horizonal and vertical by bringing in the right people to create every moment from beginning to end.
My role model is my Mom! She always supported my dreams while being a single parent!
1. My favorite short films are “A Short Film”, “Sunday’s Game” and the infamous animated short, “Bambi Meets Godzilla”, because these films are very short and very funny. I love brevity. Feature film favorites, “The Wizard of Oz” and “It’s a Wonderful Life” because of the simple messages that they share and “Pulp Fiction” because of the structure and the variety of characters.
I look for inspiration in the writing of my films. If it doesn’t tell a good story or engage me, then why do it?
I think the most important thing about filmmaking is having fun!
I consider the best film technique for shooting a film is getting it finished!
I think that the current level of filmmaking is incredibly good! There are so many filmmakers from so many countries with so many stories to be told, that it is so refreshing to see and hear the new voices.
What disappoints me in filmmaking is when the creators take their audience for granted.
My greatest supporter in my career has been my beautiful wife, Regina. She has been there for the good times and the challenging time. She always believes in me!
