Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
BH: For the opportunity to work with Jean Claude Van Damme! I followed my dream and it actually came true! Couldn’t be happier.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
BH: The much-anticipated action comedy Jean Claude Van Damme’s Damn Van! It premiered at the Bug Theater last November to rave laughter and will screen again very soon. Watch our facebook page and/or go to JCVDDV.com to stay up to date on screening info. My plan is to tour it at elementary schools and give children something to aspire to… like teaming up with Dennis Rodman or exacting vengeance for the death of your wife.

Q: What else are you working on?
BH: I’m putting together bonus features for the blu-ray release of JCVDDV, producing Eileen Agosta’s feature-film Trauma, editing Risa Scott’s short film, planning Season 2 of the Reel Nerds Podshow, publishing a book of photos I took from 2014, printing a JCVDDV-themed Cards Against Humanity deck, planning 3 music videos, and cutting a long-overdue sizzle reel for Nebulus Visions’ 15th anniversary.

I’m also learning how to fight with ninja stars.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
BH: I’ve been told I’m good at taking a stupid idea and making it into something awesome. I don’t think I have any great stories in me, but if you hand me a pile of random junk, I’ll turn it into something cool.

Did I mention Jean Claude Van Damme is “in” this movie?

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
BH: Go to nebulusvisions.com. Or track me down on the street by yelling “SAVE ME, BATMAN!”

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
BH: You made an excellent choice to screen JCVDDV. “If your enemy refuses to be humbled… destroy him.”

Jean Claude Van Damme’s Damn Van will screen January 17th at 9:00 p.m. during EFPalooza 2015 at The Bug Theatre.
