"Start The Invasion Without Me" at Bluestocking 2016


"Start The Invasion Without Me" is an Official Selection of the Bluestocking Film Series 2016 and will screen at the festival July 14-16 in South Portland, Maine.

I made this film in response to the Bluestocking challenge:
- Road Trip theme
- shot on a smartphone
- no more than 7 minutes long
- passes the Bechdel-Wallace test*

*Bechdel-Wallace test: must have at least one scene, with at least two women, talking to each other, about something other than a man

This last part turned out to actually be a challenge.

Had a lovely interview with Jay Kay of horrorhappens.com, as part of Women in Horror Month.
Archived at Soundcloud:

My segment comes in at around the 2:48 mark.

He and The Ghost run their talk show out of a bunker in New Jersey,  on the outskirts of Camp Blood.

Jay is so pleasant that I forgot it was an interview. I was sorry when we finished, because I wanted to know more about him. His interviews cover a range of activities in film, he asks excellent questions, is a fine conversationalist with interesting opinions of his own, and plays good music. The Charlie Rose of horror cinema.
