Below Zero: A Chilling Thrill Ride - Page 3
gJg: One of the things I loved most about this movie was your character (Gunnar). It was interesting to figure out what his motive was.
MB: It’s not fully revealed until the very end which I thought was fun. It’s very Alfred Hitchcock-ish.
Overall, I’m very pleased with the film. It was well written and I liked the musical score as well; particularly as it was used in certain scenes. Any time you have elements of beauty mixed in with counterpoint, it plays very well.
gJg: What was your experience like working on the film?
MB: It was great. We shot the entire film in only a few weeks and Eddie and Kristin both gave excellent performances. Signe and Bob were both professional and very easy-going. They’re also involved in a conference called The Great American Pitchfest. It supports writers with a lot of seminars. They are big supporters of the ‘written word’ so to speak.
The whole town of Edson (Alberta) was really happy we were there too. It was a treat. It’s a very beautiful area up there.
gJg: You recently did a signing in Burbank. What are the fans saying about Below Zero?
MB: We’re finding that people who have seen the movie really appreciate it. In fact, they like to watch it a second and third time because they get more out of it. Then they appreciate it even more. Visually, it’s beautiful and the music score is interesting and fresh. It’s not dependent on gore and splatter as much as it is on the mysterious things going on.
