Now that the final trailer is out, everyone will be able to see its true form. This is a full length horror feature, and if you’re not superstitious…you can watch it right now. - Eric Thirteen"
Q&A with Investigation 13 Krisstian de Lara: "Investigation 13, now on Digital and DVD from Uncork’d Entertainment, tells of a group of youngsters who voyage into an abandoned asylum to get its history –and encounter much, much more.
Director Krisstian de Lara talks about working with the legendary Meg Foster and the various different devices he used to capture the film.
Tell us how Investigation 13 came about?
Krisstian de Lara: During my graduate years at the University of Miami (UM) I had directed a horror short film titled “The Whisper” based on the Mexican folklore story of “La Llorona” and Rolando Viñas helped me as a story consultant, that’s how we became friends. When “The Whisper” premiered, audiences screamed and children cried... it was quite an experience. Thereafter, Rolando and myself always shared a passion for horror films and when this project came up right after graduating from my masters, it was just natural to direct it. When I read the script I saw potential and after working on rewrites I knew we had something very special. Since it was an independent film, there was never a doubt we weren’t going to make it. We managed to tackle every stage of pre-production and production successfully and I am very proud of that.
And the script was done when you became attached? Did it change at all – as a result of new ideas you might’ve brought to the table?
Krisstian de Lara: When I was handed the original screenplay, rewrites needed to be done. Hence, the script did change significantly. I developed a love triangle, I changed every character to be as intelligent as possible and raised the overall stakes of this particular investigation of theirs. For this to work as well, I had to alter the information the crew members would be receiving throughout the investigation. Consequently, swapping sequences that made more sense and finding creative ways to separate the team during crucial moments. It made the whole film more terrifying in a real-world scenario.
Whose idea was it to cast Meg Foster as the caretaker? Brilliant!
Krisstian de Lara: We wanted to attach a star to the project and Rolando was savvy enough to get us, Meg Foster. She is such a phenomenal person and actress, very down to earth. Meg brings a striking atmosphere and sets up the entire film in such a unique way that the story wouldn’t be the same without her. I hope we can work together on another project soon or a sequel! Wink, wink ;)
Can you tell us what you shot on - - and can you describe your shooting technique?
Krisstian de Lara: We filmed on various devices because we let technology influenced our shooting technique since these science students are relying on technology to prove that spirits actually exist.
Therefore, science-inspired us as well and filmed with pocket cameras. Nonetheless, the camera that captured the story itself which we called on to set the cinema camera was a Canon C300. We wanted to create a claustrophobic and dark atmosphere and with the help of a phenomenal crew and a well thought out lighting design by Director of Photography, Ricardo Valdez, we accomplish just that.
Do you have a favorite scene in the movie, one that you think horror audiences are going to really dig?
Krisstian de Lara: Oh yes, and it involves Nate played by actor Giordian Diaz when he goes out on his own in the rush of the moment looking for Ernie. Such a cool moment but I can’t say more without spoiling it! However, you’ll know when you see it! A scene to remember."
