We received the following press release regarding the recent horror film 'Seeds, which we reviewed here.
"Dark Star Pictures and Uncork’d Entertainment have Seeds, a very profound and confronting psychological thriller releasing in theaters September 13 and releasing on VOD/DVD September 24. We spoke to the film’s writer/director Owen Long about his long-awaited passion project, and anticipating the audience’s reaction to his very unique film."
When did your work on SEEDS begin? A number of years in the making?
Farther back than I prefer to recall – more years than ever anticipated. Welcome to the wonderful world of indie film making [Laughs].
When and where were you when you came upon the idea? Do you recall?
When I was a bit younger, living in the west village, footloose and fortified with the smugness of youth.
And was there a personal interest here, one that you wanted to really explore on film?
I was intrigued with the idea of desire. Desiring, despite any and all consequences, and the line that separates self-indulgence and destiny.
How does it feel approaching the North American release? Nervous excitement, I imagine, being it’s your first film?
Slightly apprehensive, and exhilarating at the same time. I’m not sure that you feel too different from any opening night for an art exhibition or a show. The heart and effort one has to expend culminate in how the work is received by others. Considering what is involved in making a film, it’s a monumental happening.
The film is getting a lot of fantastic press but when do you consider you’ve made a successful movie – is it when you make a profit?
When those whom I respect and admire react positively to the film.
If SEEDS is as successful as it looks to be, can you envision a sequel?
Life is full of possibilities – though I’ve never envisioned one.
