DG June 06 - Jason Paul Collum Has Lots To Scream About
Page 2
DARK GALLERY caught up with Jason Paul Collum to discuss the recent release OCTOBER MOON, it's just-gearing-up sequel, and mysterious pseudonyms...

DG: OCTOBER MOON came out earlier this year. Have you been pleased with how the movie's been received?

JPC: For the most part yes. The reaction has been beyond what I'd hoped for, both critcally and financially. The ironic thing, however, is that no matter how many good reviews the film gets from both critics and every day audiences, I always focus, almost obsessively, on the negative comments. Plus it was a very grueling film to make. On top of that, my father, who so much of the film is based on, passed away on March 1, 2006. So there's a bitter sweetness to it for me.

DG: Sorry to hear that.

JPC: The positive I'm constantly feeling, though, is this newfound respect in the film community, which is inspiring and reaffirming in my talents.

DG: That is good to hear. You lived in Southern California (West Hollywood) for some time, but now are based in Wisconsin, where you made OCTOBER MOON. Did you find it harder or easier to make a movie outside of "Hollyweird?"

JPC: I actually found it ten times easier. Less paper work. Actors and crew more eager. They're hungrier for the experience here, so they give 100%. It's also a lot cheaper. In LA my movie probably would've cost, at minimum, $25,000, and we would've been sneaking into locations and stealing shots hoping the cops wouldn't bust us. In WI, people in general are just excited to see anything of this nature happening, even if they're not in the film business. Plus the look is better...there's just less hassle in general.

DG: Your huge number of articles and profiles written for magazines such as Fangoria, Alternative Cinema, Femme Fatales and other publications must've made it a matter of phone calls to get actresses together for "Assault of the Killer B'S: Interviews With 20 Cult Film Actresses?"

JPC: It still amazes me how simple it is to get a hold of actors.¬ÝSAG gives up their agent info fairly easily. In fact, it's getting through the agent to the actor that's the biggest obstacle. Once you've got the agent, you've pretty much got a home run. Having the magazines behind my name did make it a lot easier for them to trust me, and not think I was some obsessed fan even though I really kind of was...). I could still sense some hesitation¬Ýfrom a few of the ladies for that very reason, so I just remained as cool and professional as possible.

DG: Was it the same kind of deal for SOMETHING TO SCREAM ABOUT or did you have trouble getting people together for that? Was there anyone you really wanted to include, but couldn't work it out?

JPC: There were many ladies I wanted but simply couldn't get to mesh with the scheduling. We had Lisa Wilcox (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4 & 5), Pamela Susan Shoop (HALLOWEEN II), Ginger Lynn Allen (EVIL BREED), Samantha Phillips (PHANTASM II) and a few others lined up, but just couldn't work out the details. I also really wanted Linnea Quigley, but we were only using the actors based in LA and it didn't make sense financially to fly Linnea in, put her up in a hotel and feed her for what would equate to a 45 minute interview. So I had to let that idea go. I got everyone else I did because I'd already met them through the interviews or by working the business. Again, it was the magazine background that got me in all those doors.


DG: OK, where did you come up with the pseudonym "Bud Windale?"

JPC: Ahhh...you figured that one out. Well, I did the old "What would your porn star name be?" game. You take the name of your first pet (Bud) and the street you grew up on (Wind Dale Drive). And there you have a porn name...I just used it for an alternative credit. I only used it once, for an interview with Tina Ona Paukstelis (ASWANG: THE UNEARTHING), because I knew that many people knew I was already associated with her as an actor/director, and didn't want people to think her interview and inclusion in FF any less substantial. It is kind of a cool pseudonym, though, heh?

DG: Indeed! What are you working on now that we can look forward to seeing in the near future?

JPC: I'm currently in pre-production on OCTOBER MOON 2 NOVEMBER SON, which roles in July in Wisconsin. The majority of the original cast is returning, so it'll be cool to have everyone here again. J.R. Bookwalter keeps threatening to do another film in Ohio later this year, so I'll likely work on that as a crew memember or "actor" in some capacity. Plus I'm still contemplating either doing one more movie (non-gay themed) or my long-in-the-works children's book by the end of the year. Someday I'll get my website www.jasonpaulcollum.com updated so people can keep track of me there. And they can always go to www.octobermoonthefilm.com for updates on OM 2.

DG: Thanks, Jason and best of luck with everything.
