1) To me, Devin, your movie, ‘Unsung Heroes’, looks like a cross between the Ben Stiller movie ‘Mystery Men’, and 'Austin Powers'. In your own words how would you describe your movie? Unsung Heroes Webseries is definitely influenced by Mystery Men, with a couple differences. For the most part, this is going to be a series that appeals to adults but younger people can enjoy also! The webseries will show the heroes assembling and interacting with each other throughout multiple situations. We're really excited to see people's reactions to not only the humor, but also the diversity of the cast.
3) What attracted you to this project in the first place? Well I'm an Actor, and in June of 2011, I started self-producing. At first it was because I wanted to try it but now I have a genuine love of seeing a project from beginning to end. Ever since I started though, I knew one day I would combine my love of acting and superheroes and out came Unsung Heroes Webseries.
4) If 'UH' was a song, what song would it be and why? Lol! I dunno. It would probably be a Weird Al song because of the subject matter ha ha ha. Probably “Eat It” (parody of Beat It by Michael Jackson).
6) What are your own aspirations for this project? And how did you cast your actors? Well we are making this into a webseries first but we've also thought about it as potentially a pilot for TV. Usually I just cast friends in my projects but this was different. Since the characters for this piece were so extreme in their differences, I had to have a casting call. I can't wait to cast for the actual series!
7) What are your own origins Devin? Plus what path did you take to get into this movie making business? I was born and raised in Newark, NJ (yes I'm a Jersey Boy, from the Brickz) and didn't get into acting until I was in college. Once college was over, I worked as a publicist until I decided to go full force into acting. At first I was mostly a musical theater boy but within the recent few years, I've focused mostly on auditioning and booking film-related opportunities. Now I have been self-producing for over a year and I can't wait to do more projects!
9) If there was a message behind this movie, what would it be, and why would you want to convey it? I would say that the message is “the sky is the limit.” Meaning if you want to be a superhero BE ONE! Who cares if your powers suck. Who cares if you're “too old”. Who cares if you are Black, Goth, Indian, Puerto Rican, a drag queen, a momma's boy, etc. You can do anything or be anyone that you set your mind to. JUST DO IT!!
So there you have it dear reader, my pal Devin and his great new webseries 'Unsung Heroes'. When you have the time please check out his YouTube channel. And lets not forget his facebook and twitter stream either. Thank you very much.
