Interview with Filmmaker Oliver Park (Award Winning Short VICIOUS)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

VICIOUS was the winner of Best Film at the WILDsound February 2016 Best of Horror/Thriller Festival. Already is it considered one of the top films that has ever played at the festival.

Interview with Oliver Park: 

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Oliver Park: I was born in the 80’s and grew up with stories by M. R. James, H. P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King. Then, when I discovered horror films I quickly fell in love with films by Carpenter, Craven, Kubrick, Romero, Cronenberg, Russell, Barker and of course – Hitchcock (to name but a few).

From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

It took me 2 years. I took my time to create the story and to find out how to realize it. Also the post production took a lot of time. I was lucky to work together with an…

Interview with Editor Tod Modisett (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Bachelor)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

crazy ex girlfriend.jpgIt was a privilege to chat with the talented editor Tod Modisett on the art of editing.

Matthew Toffolo: You have edited many television shows. Do you have a favorite experience?

Tod Modisett: The best experience is when you understand the show you’re working on. You get the director or the producer, and he or she gets you. Then interesting things can happen pretty quickly. Some editors can talk articulately when they’re working. I usually can’t.

Sometimes I mumble. It’s great when a director can hear me mumble something and he or she knows what I’m saying. It reminds me of how some dentists can understand you even when you have all kinds of crap in your mouth. Jeff Schaffer, the creator of “The League,” was like that. Once I mumbled something as I hit command-Z to put the edit back to what it was before I started messing with…
