Interview with Producer Christopher Coppola

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Christopher Coppola

ED- The Eerie Digest is most humbled to introduce Producer Christopher Coppola to all our readers. Christopher, you are part of the most prestigious Hollywood family today that includes such names as Francis Ford Coppola, Nicolas Cage, and Sophia Coppola, and you are a well known producer and director in your own right. We understand that an early age your first foray into filmmaking was by creating films, starring your brother Nicolas Cage, with a Super 8 camera. Please tell us about this time in your life.

CC- Yes, there is a lot of talent in the Coppola family. I look at myself as the Coppola who makes drive-in genre movies as well as educational entertainment.  My father was great educator, so I sorta combine a bit of my father and a bit of my uncle.  When I was little, my brothers and I had to deal with a mother who was mentally ill.  Our childhood was rough.  I would do puppet shows, radio shows, rigged séances and super 8 films with my brother Nicolas as a form of escape. Some of our early Super 8 films were  ”The Unknown Circus”—a little circus appears at a foggy park.  There’s a love triangle.  My brother plays the jealous clown who kills the tightrope walker. Another film was “Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva” an animated spiritual dance flick and my favorite film was about Theseus wandering in the labyrinth searching for the minotaur and in the end finding himself. When my mother was institionalized my father took over raising us. That’s when we were schooled in the arts.

Interview with Actor Joseph Tudisco

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Joseph Tudisco

ED- The Eerie Digest would like to introduce a familiar face to all our readers. Actor Joseph Tudisco has been on many of today’s favorite television shows including Law & Order and The Sopranos. Joseph what inspired you to go into the field of acting?

JD- I started to get an interest in acting a bit later in life. I was 35 at the time and worked a full time night job in a food warehouse. I decided I wanted to change my life so I enrolled and took some college classes at Kingsborough Community College, which had a great reputation for its Theatre program. I figured I’ve been acting out all my life, why not on stage. It was there that I found the road that would never end – acting.

ED- Before acting you were a coach for a High School football team in Brooklyn, New York. Please tell us about this aspect of your life.

JD- That was just about as important in my life as any other aspect. Sheepshead Bay Sharks, was the team I coached for 14 years under Dick Reilly, running the junior varsity team. It was spotlight theatre with 30 – 40 teenagers as a captive audience. Not only did I teach these kids about football but also along the way I realized that they were teaching me about life. After some mediocre seasons, I had back-to-back undefeated teams. I realized winning was not something you talked about, but something you did. So I started to preach working hard, being the best team you could be and giving all you could to the game. I decided I would take whatever results would come based on that.  Oh, by the way, the next season we lost the first game and won all the rest. I absolutely loved coaching football.

Interview with Singer/ Songwriter FAWN

Friday, April 1st, 2011

FAWN

ED- The Eerie Digest is really proud to introduce someone that has been a major part of many of the favorite television shows and films today. Singer / Songwriter / Recording Artist and Composer Fawn has created, written and sung many of the songs heard on popular television shows that we watch daily. She also is a well noted singer and has won some of the most prestigious awards. Fawn, please tell our readers about your early days in music and your greatest influence towards this profession.

 

FAWN-The earliest connection I had to music was when I was still in diapers, and not yet walking. My parents have video footage of me pulling myself up in the crib, bouncing up and down to music, until my diapers fall down around my ankles! My earliest recollection however, was when I was 7, singing in the famed Children’s Chorale directed by Duane Wolfe. Surely, that was a huge influence on me as well as other recording artists towards this profession. I would sit for hours with my heard phones on, listening to records, over and over, each time listening to a different instrumental line in the song and memorizing it. At the time, I didn’t realize that by listening to incredible songwriters, I was being taught prosody, commercial melody, lyrics, structure. Writers such as Gershwin, Sly Stone, John Denver, John Bettis, Queen, Pink Floyd, Sting, Michael Jackson, Paul Williams, Eminem, Marty Panzer, Stevie Wonder, Johnny Mercer, Dolly Parton, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Madonna, Barry Manilow, Diane Warren, The Carpenters, James Taylor, Dan Foelberg, India Arie, Cat Stevens, Billy Joel, Carole King, The Beatles – were influencing and shaping my composing and lyrical skills. It felt like music was seeping out of my pores, so it had to go somewhere – into my piano, into my voice, into writing songs, into doing commercials. I started singing radio jingles at age 10 and I think that the catchy jingle melodies also had an influence on making me a very commercial writer.

Interview with Actor Roger Conners

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Roger Conners

ED- The Eerie Digest loves to promote independent filmmakers, especially those that deal in one of our favorite genres, Horror. We therefore are excited to present actor Roger Conners to all our readers. Roger you hail from the state of Ohio. Please tell us about your life there.

RC- I’ve lived in Ohio my entire life, growing up about fifteen minutes outside of Cleveland in the city of Westlake. It’s a very upper-class area, not a whole lot of diversity going on there but very well kept and presentable. I tend to reference it as a “cookie-cutter community”… same thing day after day, but I’ve come to sort of appreciate that aspect of it. When I was younger my family went through a lot of hard times, my parents divorced and my dad took off so my mother and I ended up staying with my grandparents for a good chunk of time. Shortly thereafter my mom was diagnosed with leukemia and so my grandparents really stepped into the role of being my parental figures. I lost my grandfather when I was in middle school, and then my grandmother my junior year of high school. My mother passed eight months after that and so I was forced to drop out of school at the time and move out on my own. Know that, up until that point I’d never done anything for myself in the sense of finances or budgeting. Due to my moms illness I’d never even had a job! It was all completely new to me… and so owning a home was such a HUGE undertaking. Very overwhelming… and I was completely on my own so it’s not like I really had anyone to turn to for assistance. It was extremely rough but I got myself together and worked through it. I ended up relocating to Rocky River, only one city over from Westlake, and have remained there ever since.

Interview with Actor Jason Croot

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Jay Croot

ED- The Eerie Digest has had the opportunity to reach across the Atlantic Ocean and interview actor Jason Croot for all of our readers. Jason, You first appeared in film in 2000, but prior to that you had a great stage career. Please tell us about some of these productions and the role that you played in them.

JC- Hello and thank you for inviting me to do the interview for Eerie Digest. My early stage career covered some classics including Eugene O’Neil’s ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night’ where I played ‘Edmund Tyrone’ as soon as I picked up the play I instantly connected to Edmund and relished the performance, the next production was the brilliant ‘Death of a Salesman’ where I played ‘Biff’ I love this play and really enjoyed getting my teeth into the role. My other memorable performance was ‘Pinter’s’ ‘Betrayal’, ‘Pinter’ is not easy by any stretch of the imagination and was as complex to me as ‘Shakespeare’ but I found that once you research the characters and the world of the play that they belong in it suddenly clicks. I love theatre and all it has to offer, it has been so long since I have performed on stage one day I hope to return.

Interview with Actress Tracy J. Roman

Friday, April 1st, 2011
 

Tracy J. Roman

ED- Party for Producer and Filmmaker Carlos Etzio Roman on the East Coast and met a startling find, Tracy Roman, his daughter.  Tracy, tell us about your earlychildhood and how your father’s career influenced you in deciding to take up acting.The Eerie Digest has recently had the pleasure of attending a birthday TR- I had been working by my father’s side since my teen years, mainly behind the cameras learning as much as I could from him. One day, out of the blue, he tells me “Look, I have a good eye for good actors, so, you are playing this role.” He was referring to the role of Jody, in ‘Geezers.’ My reaction at first was ‘Oh no, no, no!’ I felt apprehensive because I never did any acting. As many of you know, he doesn’t take no for an answer very well, so, he reminded me of how nervous I was when he taught me couple’s dancing and later we did a performance in front of 200 people, (against my will, I might add). And how after 30 seconds on the floor with him, I got addicted to the audience applauding and cheering and, how he had a hard time getting me off the floor when it was over. So, I figured, why not, I will give acting a try, the worse that can happen is I make a big fool of myself and have something to talk about at the Christmas table, for years to come.

Interview with Actor Brandon DeGroat

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Brandon DeGroat

ED- During a recent trip where The Eerie Digest attended the birthday party of East Coast producer, Carlos Roman, we had the chance of meeting a number of actors from the Washington, DC area. Many of these we had the pleasure of providing interviews on for our readers to get to know during the last few months, but we would now like to introduce and exceptional actor to you that that provided a Memorable moment for us all. Actor Brandon DeGroat, is not only a fine actor, but he is a stunt man as well. Brandon, what got you interested in acting in the first place?

BD-Jackie Chan! (laughs) Actually that’s completely true. Growing up I wanted to be a stunt man. Now I know that sounds crazy but I promise you, if you ask my Pre-K teacher she’ll tell you the same thing…yes, you read that correctly. When she asked the class what we wanted to be when we grew up, you of course got the typical answers…fireman, policeman, doctor, ect. But one lone weirdo in the back of the class answered STUNTMAN! What 5 year old says that? (laughs again) anyway, so later in life I discovered a Jackie Chan film and loved every minute of it. After a bit of research, I found out he was an Actor who Did his own stunts. It was in that moment, at 15years old I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, just had to figure out a few other things first….

ED- During the party you appeared in an outfit that fooled many a party-goer, including us, at first. Even those who later saw pics of you were confused. Who provided the excellent make up in which you disarmed so many there.

Interview with Author Mark Ozeroff

Friday, April 1st, 2011

MO- I gravitated early toward my parents’ bookshelves, where the world opened wide before my young eyes. But I was inspired more directly by the lessons of history, listening to the WWII stories told by my parents’ friends. Our neighbor was a Navy veteran and pilot, who strongly influenced my interest in flying. Another family friend was my hometown’s most decorated combat vet of the war, a tough hombre who’d earned every medal up to Silver Star as a forward artillery observer. One of my most valuable history lessons came along when I was seven. I happened to sit next to a woman in temple who bore a crudely-inked number on her arm. After the service ended, she gave me a gentle nudge toward understanding what happened to more than eleven million Jews and gentiles at the hands of the Nazis. Though I didn’t realize it at the time, I was already doing research when I listened to these stories.

Mark Ozeroff

ED- The Eerie Digest loves to explore all the avenues of writing. One of our favorites is Historical Fiction. History plays an important part in many writers’ lives, whether we use it as a point of reference, a time period for the development of a story, or a factual account of real events. Author Mark Ozeroff is such a writer. Mark what inspired you most to become a writer?

ED- How has history enabled you to become accurate in basing a time period for your novel, ‘Days of Smoke’?
MO- My love of history and aircraft melded in the writing of Days of Smoke. I was lucky to interview Germany’s number three ace, Gunther Rall, who shot down an incredible 275 aircraft. General Rall flew the same type of aircraft – over the same area of Russia – as my protagonist, and he generously shared with me many details that found their way into my novel. But it was US combat veterans who taught me the true extent of Hitler’s threat. The most influential was George Moore, who participated in an intense firefight near the village of Gardelegen. The following day, George’s patrol ran across a burned barn containing the bodies of a thousand inmates from Nordhausen concentration camp. This atrocity struck more deeply into George’s soul even than watching his best friend die next to him in combat. I cannot overestimate the value of doing eyewitness research. Not only do you stand to learn facts from a unique perspective, you might also find yourself a good friend, as I did in George. Family history provided my most intense inspiration. While researching Nazi mass-murders for a pivotal scene, I stumbled across a brief description of the annihilation of Pochep, the Ukrainian village from which my grandfather had emigrated. I became obsessed in the two weeks it took to write ten pages based on this action. I woke up one night at 3:00 AM after a vivid dream about an infant victim, and I had to record it immediately while still fresh in my mind. The resulting scene had greater impact than any writing I’ve ever done. (more…)

Interview with Actor Lawrence Whitener

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Gods & Generals in 2000 and what I now look like

ED- The Eerie Digest looks at films from the larger picture angle. There are many actors needed to play the roles of the characters in a film. Not just the important ones, but also those who make up the big picture. These are not demeaning positions in a screenplay, but important parts that give the film ‘life’. All actors start out this way, and some distinguish themselves for these all-important roles. One such actor is Lawrence Whitener, who has played many characters during his years. Lawrence, how do you feel about those many parts that you had undertaken?

LW- My favorite actor is Robert Duvall, so I grew a full beard and long hair to get cast in his movie, ‘Gods & Generals,’ in 2000.  Once on the set in Charlestown, West Virginia, I was hooked on both the technicalities of film making and the always entertaining behind-the-scenes “stories.”  This started my hobby of always learning at least one new joke while on a Set, so I’m almost ready to do Stand-Up.   I later enrolled at the National Conservatory of the Dramatic Arts in Washington, D.C. and was fascinated by the philosophical schism between “legitimate theatre and those other things” (meaning movies or TV).  I continue to take various courses to include becoming a T.V. Director  and have been directing “Media Watch with Bill Schickler” on cable WNVT-Channel 10 for the past eight years.

Interview with Author Rachel Hill

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Drawing by artist Heby

ED- The Eerie Digest has received great feedback from the vast student population that reads our magazine. They have been thrilled to see us display works by student writers, several rock groups, and young actors that are first starting out. Thus we are extremely excited to present another student who has already authored books, and is attending college. Author Rachel Hill is a college student in England and has hit upon a popular subject that will interest young adult readers. Rachel, we also understand that you have acquired the nickname, ‘Gabby’. Please tell us how that all came about.

RH- I didn’t like the idea that all this ‘advice’ in the book was from me, I got a lot of help from other people because really I don’t have a clue about boys myself! I think we chose the name of Gabby because its good alliteration!

ED- Tell us about your school and where you live.

RH- I’m going to Newcastle University at the moment and the cities great; there’s always something going on and plenty of student discounts. The only problem is I’m trying to save money so I still live at home, about half an hour away, in a hidden away little town no one has ever heard of. A lot less shops and a lot less nightlife but I can at least get my mum to do the cooking.

Johnny Depp by Joe O’Donnell IV

Johnny Depp

By Joseph O’Donnell IV

I admire Johnny Depp as an actor. I have seen most of his movies. In each role he plays, he always comes up with a different character. Johnny Depp cares about his fan base and what they think about him. So, he gives a hundred percent to his performance work.

For example, for the role of Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Caribbean, he uses Keith Richards as an inspiration.   In this role, his acting skills were tested to the max. He had to learn how to sword fight, to keep in physical shape for all the action scenes, to know his lines, and to keep in character. I guess you can say Johnny Depp is the new age of Lon Chaney Senior due his ability to cast himself fully into the character that he plays. Johnny Depp’s first role in a major movie production was A Nightmare on Elm Street. He was chosen by Wes Craven’s daughter, because she thought he was cute. His role in this movie was really small and his character was killed off at the end of the film. (more…)

Christopher Lee and Marc Warren from El Conde Dracula (1970) and Dracula (2006) by Guest Author Eddie Butler

Friday, April 1st, 2011

El Conde Dracula (1970) starring Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee plays the Count for the fifth time,discounting his token guest spot as Baron Rodrigo in the comedy, Uncle was a Vampire (1959). It is claimed that he made subtle differences to his performance in this film to avoid confusion with his Dracula character. Having already resurrected Sax Rohmer’s anti-hero, Doctor Fu Manchu, for Producer Towers  in the mid sixties, it was perhaps an obvious step to continue with Stoker’s ageless satyr.

That he is happy to be doing the film is so evident that he shrugs aside the idea that there may be anyone else acting with him and seemingly prefers to carry on undirected. Parading around in dark frock coats and sporting a grey drooping moustache, he does resemble the Count’s description to an uncanny degree. His resonant voice booms through the large mausoleum that doubles as his authentic-looking castle, as he accurately relates his bloodthirsty history to the wild-eyed Harker. Unfortunately, delivering his lines like a proud child exhibiting himself in front of his parents in his first school play, he comes across as incredibly camera-conscious in some sequences. This, coupled with the input of excruciating editing, robs his Count of the powers that had served him so well four times previously.

Gone is the tigerish ferocity with which he attacks his enemies. All we get are static glares with red contact lenses and a sibilant hiss. When the peasant woman beats on the Castle doors for the return of her baby, he never calls the wolves from the forest to have a midnight snack as is told in the novel. Even his sexual proclivities are dumbed down to an infinitesimal degree. There is no preliminary nuzzling. The scene with the wolves is dampened because of the fact that the wolves themselves are actually German Shepherds,  a case that has had reviewers unkindly guffawing at for years, as it is Lee’s best managed scene in the entire movie. The whole performance, which, conversely, still dominates most of the film, turns involuntarily to a parody of his earlier successes in the role. (more…)

In the Name of Love by Guest Author Alex Knight

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Alex Knight

Making it to the lobby unrecognized was a miracle, but now Phyllis needed another one. While smoothing her hair back from her face, she realized the diamond-encrusted platinum P earring was missing from her right ear. The C was still in her left one. Phyllis knew she had them both when she left the studio and prayed her trademark earring wasn’t underneath Richard’s bloody body.

No one would ever believe she hadn’t murdered Richard, especially after the bitter argument they had on the set of her talk show earlier that morning. Even the show’s producer didn’t know it was engineered to generate more publicity and add fire to the rumors that had started when these ex-lovers announced that they were doing a major motion picture together. Groaning, she imagined the sound bites, “Academy Award Winner and Talk Show Queen, Phyllis Carter Kills Former Lover, Director Richard Arnett after a bitter, public argument, news at eleven.”

Creeping along the hallway, Phyllis was once again at Richard’s door. She entered the apartment with great trepidation and made her way to Richard’s den. Phyllis remembered how she planned to surprise him earlier with tickets to New Zealand, stealing into the den, coming up behind the chair as he looked out over the ocean view. She spun the chair around fast saying, “Surprise.” Only she was the one surprised when Richard’s body fell to the floor. Suppressing an urge to scream, Phyllis had fled the scene.

Phyllis knew if she didn’t find her earring right away, she would have to look underneath Richard’s body. Wobbly legs carried her over the threshold where she stopped short. Richard’s body was back in the chair, just as it had been earlier, and there was no sign of her earring. (more…)

Portent by Guest Author R.B. Clague

Larry Shuttleworth slid the needle into his arm with practiced ease and pulled back the syringe, watching as crimson-coloured blood entered the plastic chamber, indicating that he was inside the vein. He then pushed the plunger slowly and watched as the heroin disappeared into his body. He extracted the needle and placed it beside the bed, just as the rush hit his brain, shrinking his pupils, turning his eyes myopic and sending him falling backwards onto the covers.

There is nothing quite like heroin a dream he thought to himself. It’s as if your mind just floats away in space, connected to the world by the most delicate thread, distant, objective, and apart. It is a small slice of heaven, which lasts for too little a time, before the hell of insatiable craving arrives, to slap you back down to a harsh and unwelcome reality.

Somewhere in the background, Larry heard the sound of a baby crying, desperately yelling out for its mother to fulfil its needs. It irritated him, that his stone could be disturbed in such a manner. He shouted out for someone to shut the baby up, but was unsure if his words actually left his mouth in more than a whisper. He sat up, feeling annoyed, on the verge of anger. ‘Shut that baby up!’

‘What are you talking about, Larry? There’s no baby around here,’ said Fred, Larry’s partner in crime who had helped him drag the big screen television out of an apartment no more than an hour ago, so they could both go and score, to stop the symptoms of withdrawal that scratched ceaselessly at their brains.

‘I heard a baby crying,’ replied Larry sitting up on the bed. ‘I wasn’t imagining it. It woke me up and dragged me out of my stone.’ (more…)

Laughter in the Dark by Guest Author Ava Sprayberry

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Ava Sprayberry‏

The legend says that the witches of the backwoods were different.  They were not like the normal stories of witches that people are accustomed to.  They were friends to the towns’ people.  They looked to them for guidance when an illness plagued the town.  They were healers, and in most cases, the redeeming feature of the town.  They had saved the lives of countless children with their natural cures for pneumonia and influenza.  They were invited to weddings, and barn dances.  They were the life of the party with their unnatural outfits, and hilarious antics.

One night, the four sisters returned home from a night out at the town social.  They were full of laughter and excitement.  They danced around, twirling in circles with smiles on their faces.  They had no idea that their death lurked within the very walls of the small cottage that they called home.  They entered their domain.  Fiona lit a lantern that rested on the table.  The bright light illuminated almost every corner.

Beneath the stairs, they waited.  They watched as Fiona, Sophia, Camilla, and Athena dressed, climbed into their bed, and settled down for the night.  Camilla extinguished the lantern before lying down.  The four still lurked beneath the stairs.  Four witches slept as their four assailants watched and waited.  They knew that they couldn’t act too quickly.  They had to use the element of surprise.  They knew that the witches could destroy them with their powers.  They had to stick to the plan.  That was the only way to ensure their safety.

Ouija by Guest Author William Fripp

Friday, April 1st, 2011

William Fripp

I believe the Ouija board wanted to be found. I know how that sounds, and before Patty’s death I would have thought it sounded crazy too, but now that I have seen with my own eyes, I am convinced it wanted, needed to be found.

It lay among Patty’s Aunt Tracy’s belongings, stored away in the attic of her home with the various boxes of baby clothes and pictures and keepsakes, the scattered remnants of a long life, dust covered and cob webbed. When Aunt Tracy passed, the house became Patty’s and it was an easy decision to pack up and move into it. The kids were grown and gone, so our empty nest was not that difficult to abandon. Aunt Tracy’s was paid for and the taxes were less than our yearly rent. Like I said, an easy decision.

So, six months to the day after we buried Aunt Tracy, we stuffed our worldly possessions into a U-haul truck and drove the four hours from Myrtle Beach to Charlotte and parked in front of 1333 Queens Road West. The house was over fifty years old and it reflected the style of the times; columns on the wide porch, three stories with an ample attic, a big back yard, four rooms and two and half baths. Compared to our two bedroom bungalow at the beach it was a mansion. Patty was overjoyed.

“God, Michael,” she breathed, “it’s beautiful.”

“You act like you’ve never seen it before,” I teased her. “Didn’t you use play here when you were a kid?”

“Only when we visited.”

“So you already knew it was beautiful.” (more…)

Eerie News: Tragic Fire Brings Acting Community Together

A Unique Family Comes  Together Actors do more than just support !

an inside story from the Publisher

In times of tragedy all communities pull together to help get through the bad times, and that goes for the acting community as well. At the beginning of this year Sharon Carpenter, an actress and member of the Roman Pictures film production company, experienced a devastating house fire. She suffered a total loss of everything that she owned.

In the days that followed producer Carlos Roman contacted the acting community that was considered part of the production company’s ‘family’, and they contributed many items to replace some of the ones that she lost.

” You can’t replace the many personal items that mean so much,” she was heard to say, “and the insurance does not cover everything”. (more…)
