HONEYSPIDER Director’s Statement
When I first read the script to HONEYSPIDER I felt refreshed. Just hearing the words ‘new horror film’ sends chills of preconceived disappointment through my body. But this wasn’t a story I’d heard before. It was daring, in that it was original. So with this, I was more than compelled to turn it into a movie.
I had worked with writer, Kenny Caperton on several projects before, so I was no stranger to his passion for the horror industry. I knew I would not only be given creative control in telling the story on film, but I would also have a strong counterpart in the areas needed. We both agreed on one thing – no matter what it takes, we’re going to make the movie we want to make.
Going into pre-production I knew I would rely heavily on creativity and practicality, due to the low budget behind the film. But this actually made me excited. In a way, it only seemed to fit even more. A story like this shouldn’t be told with big budget effects and pretty distractions. This is a story that rides the line of imagination and what we know to be true. Most importantly, it’s reminiscent of the classics that were driven by passion, not fancy eye candy. So I felt it necessary to not only acknowledge the filmmaking approach at hand, but fully embrace it for the significance it holds as a story telling component.
During production we maintained a small and very dedicated cast and crew. I didn’t want to have a bunch of people on staff, because I wanted to put the money into areas that would enhance and amplify our creative efforts on screen. This included everything from locations to set design and props. Because of this, we had a very diverse crew. Someone might be helping set up lights one day and then holding a boom the next. But everyone did everything with passion and dedication. Ultimately we achieved the shots I set out for, with quality and value consistently present throughout.
In the end we made HONEYSPIDER. A beautiful, gritty, against the grain, independent horror film. It’s a story that is told both visually and literally, to those who choose to listen – for the fans, by the fans. Above all, it’s a successful accomplishment, in that it is the film we wanted to make.
