Continuing with our coverage of our latest release, Strawberry Estates, we sat down for a fun-filled interview with two of the main stars of the movie - Jason Reed and Chrissy Frick. Here's what they had to say:
Dark Gallery) Tells us about your role in Strawberry Estates?
Chrissy Frick) I played Sarah Richmond, a naive, young girl who really doesn't have much on her mind aside from grades and hooking up! She's not a very strong girl, she lets people push her around.
Jason Reed) I play Jason Knowles, the videographer with an annoying girlfriend. I'm supposed to be documenting Dr. Laurel's foray into the Estates, but I spend most of my time trying to get into Sarah's pants.
DG) What elements of the character interested you?
CF) I love the way Sarah just breaks out of her flirty, meek way of life and ends up showing the audience a different, stronger side.
JR) Ron kind of crafted the character around me, so it was easier to play. Jason was fun to play - he gets drunk, stoned, laid and dies - good weekend.
DG) What did you find most difficult about the shoot?
CF) Staying warm! There was no heat in the building and we were shooting in early winter. That evil dog that kept showing up on the set was also a little difficult to deal with!
JR) I've never really acted before. Trying to remember what/how/when I was supposed to be saying and running the camera at the same time took some getting used to. I was also pretty nervous about messing everything up, because Ron would stand offscreen and when we screwed up he would cane us.
DG) What was it like working with Ron as your director? We hear he can be difficult to please...
CF) I'll admit, Ron IS difficult to please, but that's only because he wants his movie to be good! To be blunt, he doesn't want to distribute a piece of shit film! And quite frankly, I wouldn't want to be associated with that type of product, so doing take after take is fine with me! This was the first time I was in front of the camera on a film and Ron was great!
JR) Watch the footage between takes. It was like working for Hitler. Just kidding. Ron knows how to get what he wants out of you, which was good, because like I said before I had no real acting experience. But seriously, if you can, watch the outtakes. They're funny as hell.
DG) Are you a fan of this type of movie? Not just horror movies in general, but this psuedo-doc style most well-known in The Blair Witch Project?
CF) I'm definitely a fan of this type of film! I must admit that I thought psuedo documentaries would be a passing trend, but with the recent release of such shows as "Fear" and "Freaky Links" it just proves that film is becoming more and more inventive and creative. You don't need millions to make a good, scary movie! That's what makes this genre of film so appealing!
JR) The first time I saw something like that was on Fox and it was some alien tape way before BW. It had me really going for a while (yeah, I was drunk - so what?) and I loved it. The hype for BW made me expect way too much. It depends on the movie. My answer: Crapshoot.
DG) Are you happy with both the movie and your work within it?
CF) I'm very happy with the way the movie turned out! It was so exciting to watch the final product in a theater and hear the reaction of the crowd. I got scared watching it and I knew what was going to happen! I think everyone who worked on the film did an amazing job. It was basically the first time any of us had acted in a film and I think we all did pretty damn good for our first time out!
JR) I think the movie came out well. Of course when I see it, I'm remembering all the funny stuff, all the retakes and everything. I guess there's things I might change that I had done, but overall I think it worked.
DG) Do you see yourself acting or working in more movies in any way further on down the line?
CF) I always knew I wanted to make movies, I just wasn't sure which aspect of film most appealed to me. I've done everything from editing to set design. But after working on Strawberry Estates, I realized how much I want to pursue an acting career. So, yes, my name will be attached to MANY more movies further on down the line!
JR) I would definitely like to do some more acting. I had a great time and I think I did a decent job, so we'll see what happens.
Thanks guys - and stay tuned readers for even more coverage of Strawberry Estates soon!
