Cat: Everyone is talking about your upcoming movie. Who is the man behind PERSEVERATION?
ADAM SOTELO: Me, Adam Sotelo, a 21 year old, From Wayne NJ. I came up with the concept for the film actually a few years ago but never bothered to write a script until recently.. There are a few people who agreed to help me with this project… Honestly… I dont think this movie would be possible without them. Between Dean Luis my director of photography, Hamid Alizadeh who is my sound and lighting technician and Ricky Lucien Lorenzo who is assisting both Dean and Hamid, the amount of work these guys put in is amazing. Not to mention the mind blowing special effects From Justin Taylor. We formed a great team for this project, and I’m really excited to have them as a part of „Hellsgate Pictures„.
Cat: What can we expect?
A.SOTELO: GORE. I am making this movie for the „Gore Hounds“. Justin Taylor (Lead SPFX Artist) WILL NOT DISAPPOINT! From the first minute to the last frame. I wanted my first film to really shock people and ask themselves… „Why the FUCK am I watching this?“ Also, you can expect alot of antireligion in the movie.Overall, you can expect gore, an insane story, and hopefully something that will go down in history for horror fans.
Cat: I would like to know when we might expect to see that.
A.SOTELO: I really enjoy a movie that kicks right in. And we will not disappoint with that!
Cat: You are a big HORROR-fan. What are your favourite movies?
A.SOTELO: I really enjoy the 80s type horror that I grew up with. But if I had to pick some specific films that really inspired my movie I’d have to say: A Serbian Film, I Spit on Your Grave, and August Underground. Honestly there are so many films I really like but those films push the boundaries and they arent afraid to do so.. Thats what I’im all about..
Cat: Do you plan a worldwide distribution?
A.SOTELO: Well I plan on getting it released in theaters in New York City for a few nights, but I’m not entirely sure that it wouldnt be pulled. You can keep your eyes open for an uncut DVD on Hellsgate Pictures for all the gruesome footage you wont see anywhere else!
