Interview with Simon Horrocks

Filmmaker Simon Horrocks discuss his indie film noir THIRD CONTACT.

Third ContactThird Contact, Simon Horrocks’ directorial debut, was shot on a miniscule budget showing yet again that films don’t need major studio funding in order to be excellent. The reviews for the film so far have been great, with one even referring to it as a “masterful piece of art.”

The film tells the story of Dr. David Wright, a depressed psychotherapist, who embarks on an obsessive investigation after a second patient takes their own life in mysterious circumstances. Wright sets out to find out who or what is behind those deaths before any more lives are lost.

Horrocks is getting ready to kickoff a crowdfunding campaign in order to give his film the release it deserves. In honour of that upcoming campaign, I had the opportunity to talk to him about the film. We discussed his inspiration, why he’s searching for public funding, and much more.”

Congratulations to Young Il Kim

Screenwriter Young’s project RODHAM landed director James Ponsoldt.

“You don’t become one of the most powerful women on the planet by twiddling thumbs and prancing on ponies.

Young Il Kim’s 2012 Black-Listed biopic “Rodham” aims to expose some of the professional and personal challenges Hillary Rodham (pre-Clinton) esquire extraordinaire faced long before her days as the First Lady, Senator of New York, Secretary of State and presumed presidential hopeful — in other words, as a b.a.m.f. — and now a director has been chosen for the job of bringing the pic to life.

“The Spectacular Now” helmer James Ponsoldt been wrangled in by “Twilight” producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen for the pic (not coincidentally, the script for “Spectacular” was also a Black Lister in 2009), and an actress is soon to be sought for the job of portraying the eponymous role.”
