Howdy folks, Jason here. I recently had the opportunity to catch up with Sandy Collora, director of the upcoming practical effects creature film known as Shallow Water. He is currently in the midst of trying to raise funds for the film on Kickstarter, and his campaign currently sits at $75,211 – about 14% of his potential history-making target goal of $550,000. Here’s what all he had to say:
JH: First off, thanks a ton for taking the time to speak with us here at TheBlood-shed.
JH: Your upcoming film Shallow Water looks amazing. Tell us a bit about the film and what exactly you’re going for.
A shot of the creature from behind – looks pretty wicked.
JH: With a lot of over-the-top, intentionally outrageous creature horror films coming out these days, it seems like a creature film that takes itself seriously could be a bit refreshing. In what ways are you planning to make an impact and leave your mark on the creature sub-genre?
JH: Absolutely, absolutely. So tell me more about the creature itself – it looks very realistic, and honestly, it looks pretty creepy as well. Where did the idea for this particular creature come from?
Unlike much of the creature feature stuff that comes out these days, with Shalow Water, Sandy Collora is attempting to create a creature that is actually meant to be taken seriously.
JH: You’re raising money on Kickstarter to make Shallow Water a reality. Your campaign appears to be off to a great start. Tell us a bit about the campaign and why people will want to get involved.
JH: Shallow Water seems to be one-hundred percent where your heart is for the time being. But after this film, do you plan to stay within the horror genre? Maybe you have another creature feature in mind? Or are you just focusing on Shallow Water for now and planning to decide what comes next once you get there?
JH: Is there anything else you’d like to speak of? Anything you’d like to plug? Ssomething I didn’t mention?
JH: Alright man, well thanks a ton for taking some time out of your schedule to do this interview. Best of luck with the film and I can’t wait to see it once it’s done.
