Interview with Actor and Film Maker Kim Sønderholm

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

ED- The Eerie Digest is proud to introduce one of Denmark’s greatest independent film makers, Kim Sonderholm. Kim welcome to The Eerie Digest ! You are considered one of Denmark’s scariest men for the great acting that you have done, and the movies that you have produced. First tell us about your acting, and how you started in this career .

KS- “One of Denmarks scariest men”? Wow, I’ve never heard that one before, haha. It’s not really a question of me being scary, or anything like that, but me trying to do as good a piece of work as I can and still maintain the pleasure and energy not to forget integrity in doing so. I’ve played most things from comedy, drama, action but true, the past few years there have been a fair share of horror roles aswell, which is great by me, seing as I love the genre and have loved it since I was a kid.

I guess my story how why I wanted to get into acting is not much different from anyone elses, I’ve been dreaming of it since I was a kid and when opportunity knocked I jumped on the train. I did a lot of different jobs since I left school but never felt sadisfied or fullfilled with them. I’ve always had a great interest in computers but even an education in that field didn’t interested me for long when it came down to it, it simply became way too borring way too quickly. At this point I was 25 years old and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and I didn’t wanna be one of those sad 80 year old men sitting at the nursing home, boring the hell out of anyone around me with “how big I would have become if only given the chance”.

Interview with Filmmaker Peter Lankston

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

ED- The Eerie Digest is excited to welcome Peter Lankston for our reader’s pleasure. Peter, a good number of our readers are college and film students who wish to make a career in the film and publishing industries. What interested you most in making a career in film making?

PL- From a young age I was really interested in film, but didn’t think of it as a career choice – that was a million miles away from where I live in Cornwall – just unattainable. Then everything changed one night when I watched Evil Dead 2 with a group of friends. They didn’t seem the least bit interested, but I was fixated on that film (like most indie filmmakers around my age)! It not only told a simple, funny, horror story, but it was a very visually crafted film. From there I got the bug and my friend had an old camcorder, so we went out and made little movies. The other two big influences were Eraserhead and Videodrome – both big, big influences. (more…)
