29 year old American Director Eric England chats with me from Los Angeles about how he followed his heart and got into writing and directing films at 19 after being inspired by watching Steven Speilberg’s movies growing up in Arkansas.
His latest release ‘Get The Girl’ sees a wealthy young man conned into staging a fake kidnapping, allowing him to be seen as a hero and win the affection of a girl he’s madly in love with. But when one of the hired kidnappers is accidentally killed during the charade, he’s forced to save her life while not revealing that it’s been a ruse all along.’
Eric describes his latest project as a “dark comedy” more than horror – for which he is best known. His next project he says, “will probably be a horror movie, but while I had the opportunity I kinda wanted to step outside of that.”
Shooting ‘Get The Girl’ was challenging in “every way” Eric explained. Shot in Los Angeles “without a ton of money” and with many stunts involved on such a fast shoot made it “chaotic and challenging like a “logistical dance.”
