Review Fix: What made you want to be a part of this production?

Benjamin J. Alexander: It was finally an opportunity to prove ourselves to the industry. I figured with the minuscule budget we had, if we could make a decent film then maybe people would have to start taking us seriously. 

Review Fix: What are your goals for this film?

Alexander: To have it seen by wide variety of people, as many eyes as possible. As long as someone enjoys it I would be happy, but most of all I want it to be a shining example of what people thought we couldn’t do. The more “they” watch the more vindicated I’ll feel. 

Review Fix: What did you learn about yourself through this film?

Alexander: That there may be a place in this town for my stories after all, when you write a movie and then you produce it, your biggest fear is that your voice isn’t going to transfer to the screen. Also the limits to my patience are much, much further than I once believed.      

Review Fix: How has this film made you a better producer?

Alexander: You learn how to put out the fires. On set something inevitably goes wrong ever 5 seconds. The key is to remain calm, each day is a learning experience whether its your 1st film or your 50th. But in the end the right team behind a project can make all the difference and thats exactly what we had. 

Review Fix: How do you want this film to be remembered?

Alexander: Just a good story that leaves you wanting to see it through. 

Review Fix: Who do you think will enjoy this film the most? 
 
Alexander: Anyone who likes a good revenge flick is gonna wanna tune in, but it’s definitely a “guys” movie thats for sure.

Review Fix: Bottom line, why should someone watch this film? 

Alexander: Because it’s just a fun movie there’s no better way to say it. It keeps you guessing and doesn’t let you down. Everyone likes seeing bad people get whats coming to them.

Review Fix: What’s next?

Alexander: We have several killer scripts on deck and with John Q Public’s blessing we truly just hope to get to make another one. This is the most fun I have ever had at work and after this, I would love to see what our team could produce with a real Hollywood budget. I think once again we would surprise you
