Two new interviews! Talking The Shelter, screenwriting, new projects etc!

Hey people! I was recently interviewed twice, talking about THE SHELTER, screenwriting and my future film projects. Excepts and links below! It should also be said that with THE SHELTER’s domestic release around the corner, you can expect to hear me yapping some more in the near future 🙂 As always, thank you all for the continuous support.

Horrorfuel:The film wouldn’t be as good without Mike (Pare). I feel very blessed to have had him play the lead. He’s a monster actor. So much talent.  I am very happy that reviews so far have pointed out his performance as one of the best of his career. He fucking earned it.”READ THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW HERE

Menegetti’s Script Development Blog:Getting a film off the ground is very hard and time consuming. It’s lots of work and it can take a very long time. So if I’m going to invest years of my life into trying to make a movie happen – I have to respond to it on an emotional level as much as I do on a commercial level. I have to love the shit out of it.”READ THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW HERE

Eric Red’s 100 FEET on the big screen as it should be! Rare BTS pics!

I’ll speak for myself here; with its long takes/classical directing style and old school cinematography (by the great Ken Kelsch); ERIC RED’s 100 FEET starring Famke Janssen, Ed Westwick, Bobby Cannavale and yours truly as Jimmy was always meant to be a big screen experience. Alas, the movie was finished when the film market collapsed and distribution as we knew it went tits up, hence it wound up straight to TV then DVD.

On that I am elated to report that Writer/Director and my compadre ERIC RED will be  hosting a double bill 35MM screening of 100 FEET  (and his classic BODY PARTS) at Alamo Drafthouse in Denver, Colorado on Thursday October 27th 2016 (GET THE INFO AND TICKETS HERE)!  So many of you will get the opportunity to witness it on the big screen, the way it was meant to be seen in the first place.

I look back at 100 FEET with much fondness as it was a first for me on many levels.

1- I played against type (nervous/insecure tech dude)
2- Finally got to be in an Eric Red film, which was along term goal of mine.
3- I acted alongside two acting powerhouses (Janssen and Cannavale). My cherry got popped!
4- I had to deliver an “exposition laced” quasi monologue (I basically set up the rules of the movie) and make it sound “organic”. Never had to that before (or since). To this day I remember my lines 🙂
5- Learned so much watching Eric Red at work. I’m a better director today for it.

It was also on that set that I met Michael Pare (who wound up being the lead in my directorial debut The Shelter), visited Eastern Europe for the first time (the flick was shot in Budapest) and also learned the hard way that downing a Coca Cola is not the best thing to do right before acting in a scene (duh) being that one needs to be relaxed to act, Coke did not “relax” me…lol!

To celebrate the film’s big screen showing, I decided to dig up some obscure BEHIND THE SCENES shots from the film for y’all! Tap them below! 100 FEET goes full circle. I am happy!
