From Los Angeles to New Orleans to Lima – Mike Lyddon talks Indie Filmmaking

Mike Lyddon interview Monster DiggareIn the latest interview from the Swedish genre site MONSTERDIGGARE, filmmaker Mike T. Lyddon goes back in time to recount tales of filmmaking and inspiration from Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Lima, Peru.
“My early influences included Harlan Ellison, Charles Beaumont, Rod Serling, Roger Corman, Forrest J Ackerman, and of course the late great Don Dohler.”
On filming First Man on Mars in Louisiana and Mississippi –
“I wrote the original First Man on Mars story while there was a lot of excitement about NASA sending people to Mars. So I thought it would be timely to make a film about Mars, but of course, make it a horror-comedy about a billionaire astronaut who funds his own expedition to Mars…”
On DIY filmmaking –
“You MUST rehearse the script with your cast prior to getting on the set to shoot the film. You MUST block out any needed action as well as you can before you get on the set. You would be surprised at how many low budget films do not do these things, and they suffer for it.”
