Part 3 BTS (Behind The Scenes) with Elaine Chu
Interesting thoughts on where all these new productions came from during the pandemic. If Elaine could choose, which production company (MonkeyPaw, 824 or Blumhouse) who would she choose to work with and why?
What Elaine created during the pandemic. Why sometimes a shoe string budget is the best budget? How it’s different directing a film that you’ve written versus one written by someone else? Ideas for new filmmakers, the market and use for horror shorts, plus platforms for submitting them.
Oh and why has Elaine is been chastised by a nun.
Movies Mentioned: The Purgation, Birdemic, Sharknado
Elaine Chu is the director of The Purgation and also worked on Excision. She shares with us how she came to be a film maker and what that entailed. How long it took from start to finish and other than time, what it cost her and if it was worth it.
What else she’s been doing and working on and if there will be more horror films in the future. I also outed Carlos as a future film maker and she shares some valuable information. Do you make the movie to make yourself happy or the audience? Plus good ideas for future filmmakers and their work, short form film and why you should absolutely work for free when you’re just starting. And who Elaine would love to work with.
The difference between movies for horror fans and casual viewers, as well as horror film critics and general film critics. There are lots of Purgation spoilers in this series!
