INTERVIEW:

What inspired the story for Sleeping Father?

Sleeping Father based on my own life, which has been quite dark, including experiments with drugs, experiences with delirium and drug psychosis, as well dark and occult parts of my own life and lives of my close friends. And movies of New French Extremity movement, Cinema of Transgression, Body Horror etc.

Will music play a big role in this film? Can you tell me a bit about the soundtrack you have in mind?

Yeah, a really big, maybe similar to how music play a role in Gaspar Noe movies. Soundtrack will feature my own score, as well a few independent American acts and pieces of Dwid Hellion from occult hardcore band INTEGRITY (his help means a lot to me).

What are a few of your favorite films?

Hard to name a few, but, well – Alphaville, Enter The Void, Videodrome, Tetsuo, I also really dig visuals of Begotten (but dislkie the movie itself), a lot of underground soviet/russian movies that are mostly unknown to European/American people.


The budget you are asking for is small for any film, can you achieve your vision for this project with that amount?

Yeah, I survived and learned how to make good stuff without any budget at all thru years (living in Russia is tough and painful hahaha). So, yeah 2500 dollars will be enough to do a decent film, but if people can send me more, I can add more scenes, and make a cooler DVD edition etc.

We don’t get to see a lot of current Russian films over here, can you point us toward a few directors or films to check out?

Well, everything by Evgenii Yufit for example, or really sick movie by Lopushansky (the main actor in Tarkovsky’s “Stalker”) – Letters of the Deadmen.

HE’S GIVEN YOU ENOUGH AMAZING FREE MUSIC FROM MODERN HOWL THAT YOU COULD THROW A FEW DOLLARS HIS WAY TO MAKE THIS FILM, BELIEVE ME IN RUSSIA YOU CAN GET SHIT DONE FOR $2500, THAT’S PROBABLY HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO MAKE AVATAR THERE.

Спящий Отец – дебютный кинопроект молодого режиссера (а по совместительству сценариста, монтажера и композитора) Павла Рязанова.

Sleeping Father is a directorial debut of Paul von Aphid, a young filmmaker who is also a screenwriter, film editor and composer.

С детства я мечтал стать кинорежиссером, читая о таких людях как, скажем, Гаспар Ноэ, Квентин Тарантино или Джон Карпентер (которые только своими огромными стараниями заслужили себе славу и почитание армии фанатов, и разумеется, сняли великолепные фильмы). В подростковом возрасте я увлекся музыкой, ставшей моей главной страстью, и около 7 лет посвятил изучению звукозаписи, сведения, живым выступлениям, видеомонтажу клипов и т.д. (что окупилось незаменимым опытом, а также множеством знакомств как с профессионалами, так и самоучками как я).

Since I was a child I’ve dreamt of becoming a film director. I would read about Gaspar Noé, Quentin Tarantino and John Carpenter, directors whose huge creative efforts earned them fame and a fanbase and, of course, resulted in brilliant films. I spent 7 years learning to record and mix, perform live, edit videos, etc; which paid off with crucial experience, as well as many contacts with both professional artists and those who were self taught just like me.

Я верю, что Россия может создавать интересное, независимое и культурно значимое кино вне рамок обычной системы кинобизнеса.

I believe that Russia can create interesting independent cinema beyond the limitations of usual cinema industry system.

Отец – мой дебютный проект в области кино, идея которого пришла мне в ноябре 2011, а сценарий был написан этим летом. Он частично основан на моей собственной жизни, частично – на впечатлениях на просмотре фильмов Гаспара Ноэ – “Вход в пустоту”, “Падаль”, “Один против всех”, а также просто тонн экспериментального и коммерческого кино. Это 100% независимое и авторское кино – без цензуры – правдивое и бескомпромиссное.

Sleeping Father is my film debut. I first came up with the idea in November 2011, and wrote the script this past summer. It’s based partially on my own life and from the impressions I got after watching films by Gaspar Noé, such as Enter The Void, Carne, I Stand Alone, and tons of experimental and commercial films.

Это история молодого человека, погружающегося в самоотчужденность и безумие, где он уже не может понять, где реальность, а где – НЕЧТО, с чем он не очень-то хотел бы сталкиваться.

This is the story of the young man, that slowly travel to the altered states of mind.

Другие режиссеры и кинофильмы, что повлияли на меня при создании фильма

Дэвид Кроненберг (особенно его “Видеодром”, “Космополис” и “Оправданная Жестокость”).

– Японский киберпанк с шедеврами навроде “Любовник Резины” и “Тецуо – Железный человек”.

– “Альфавилль”, “Побег Логана” и “Зардоз”.

– “Мементо” Кристофера Нолана.

– “Клеймо на мозге” Гая Мэддина.

– Пост-модернистский подход Тарантино, и как непосредственное визуально-жанровое влияние – “Бешеные Псы”.

Other directors and films that were an influence are:
– David Cronenberg (especially Videodrome, Cosmopolis and A History of Violence).
-Japanese cyberpunk and its masterpieces such as Rubber’s Lover and Tetsuo, the Iron Man.
– Alphaville, Logan’s Run and Zardoz
– Christopher Nolan’s Memento
– Guy Maddin’s Brand Upon the Brain!
– Quentin Tarantino’s postmodernist approach, and Reservoir Dogs as a stylistic and visual influence.

На данный момент полностью готов сценарий и раскадровка, отснят трейлер, фильм будет идти около 35-40 минут, при дополнительном финансировании – будет увеличен хронометраж и добавлены дополнительные визуальные эффекты. Подобраны и все актеры. Съемки и монтаж будут закончены в Феврале 2013, а в Марте 2013 спонсоры уже получат свои DVD и саундтрек. Говоря о саундтреке – в нем поучаствуют несколько известных современных независимых электронных команд из США, а также Двид Хеллайон (Dwid Hellion) – лидер легендарной хардкор группы INTEGRITY.

Минимальные 75 тысяч требуются на покупку хорошего видео оборудования, света и дополнительного реквизита, а также тиража DVD, саундтрека и футболок для спонсоров.

Также будет создана англоязычная версия фильма для презентации проекта на фестивалях независимого кино в США и Европе.

As of now a screenplay and a shooting script are ready. The film is going to be about 35-40 minute long, additional funding will mean more running time and visual effects. All actors are already chosen. Shooting and editing will be completed in February 2013, and in March 2013 sponsors will get their DVD copies and soundtracks. Speaking of soundtrack – it will feature a few well-known (TBA) modern electronic acts from USA, as well something TBA from Dwid Hellion – leader of occult hardcore legends INTEGRITY.

At least 75,000 roubles (2500 dollars) will be needed for good video equipment, lighting and additional props, and also DVDs for sponsors.
An English language version of film will also be created for independent film festivals in USA and Europe.
