So I’m glad that you’ve agreed Mr. Sean Donohue to this interview with Movies Galore of Milwaukee…

MGOM: First let’s begin begin with your name, where your from, and What were your inspirations for becoming a director of independent films? How did you come up with your concept idea for your distribution company Gatorblade films and The Sleaze Box?

SD: I was born in Baltimore, Maryland but have lived in Florida most of my life. I had always wanted to be an actor as a kid and when I got older I realized that I would be better off trying to make films instead of acting in them.  On another note, The Sleaze Box is not my company.  The Sleaze Box is run by Chris Woods.   I run Gatorblade Films.  Death-Scort Service 1 and 2, Cannibal Claus and Chaos A.D were a Sleaze Box/ Gatorblade collaboration.

MGOM: Good to know as im still laerning on which company’s are associated with where. May I ask why did you choose horror? Or at least the genre your creating in Independent Film? And what is your favorite horror film if you had one or two that influenced you?

SD: I love horror and comedy.  I grew up watching alot of both.  I want to make a comedy, I even have one in the works.  Can’t really don’t have a favorite horror film, I like them all so much.  The first horror film I saw was the original Fright Night.  That movie definitely got me interested in the genre.

MGOM: What kind of challenges did you have in making “If I Can’t Have You…” and or “Bloody English”?

SD: I worked on If I can’t Have you with director friend, Chris Leto.  It was my first independent horror film I worked on.  I did a little bit of everything, lighting, camera, F/X and editing too.  Bloody English was my first horror short.  It was fun to make but hot as hell as we shot it in the middle of a hot Florida summer.

MGOM: “Joe Vampire” and or “Agrizophobia”?

SD: Joe Vampire was my first full length horror film that I produced and directed.  There were alot of problems to say the least.  I’m glad it got made and was definately a learning experience.  Agrizoophobia was a short I created for a compilation that never happened.  It is a special feature on the Joe Vamp DVD.  That one was alot of fun but again hot, rainy and sandy as we shot most of it in the woods.

MGOM: “DIe Die Delta Pi” and or “Death-Scort Service”?

SD: Die Die Delta Pi still to this day was my highest buget film and definately one of the hardest to make.  We had a huge cast and every problem in the book.  It’s still amazes me that it got to exhist.  Death-Scort Service on the other hand was alot easier than alot of other films I made before it.  What I didn’t expect from that one was the amount of love and appraise it got.  I think it’s my most popular movie.

MGOM: “Cannibal Claus” and or “Death-Scort Service 2: The Naked Dead”?

SD: Cannibal Claus was another fun one and Bob Glazier KILLED it!!  I had always wanted to make a Christmas movie and and glad this one happened.  I hope it lives on through the generations.  DSS 2 was definately a challenge as it was my first sequel and I had alot of new cast members I hadn’t worked with before on set.  Things went pretty smooth and we definately had a good time making it.
