JC Schroder Shares His Thoughts on His New Movie, Forever’s End
I asked him about his latest movie Forever’s End and why he decided to come back to Cincinnati to shoot it. He said the budget made sense for the Cincinnati area because he could stretch his money further here than in Los Angeles. Plus he had the perfect locations which worked for the film. This is JC’s directorial debut as a featured film director. He’s been busy since he moved to LA doing music videos, commercial projects, short films, and working on other film projects in a number of roles. He considers Forever’s End his chance to move to the next level.
JC says the film starts slowly but builds with intensity and tension. The audience really never knows what’s happening. He further says Forever’s End is essentially a character piece. "I love building characters and allowing them to interact with each other". JC also says "Forever’s End has a mood and atmosphere much like last year’s critically acclaimed Winter’s Bone".
Forever’s End has already lined up distribution. Rivercoast Productions will handle the domestic distribution for the home video market. JC also believes the film will receive a limited theatrical release.
I had a chance to see some of his work, and it looks outstanding. Forever’s End is a film that you will want to keep on your radar screen. I have a feeling this could be JC’s big break.
Over the past decade Schroder has produced more than 35 film and television productions (from commercials and music videos to independent short and feature films) as well as written and directed over a dozen more, including PCFMF’s 2008 Gold Medal winner “Freedomland” and PCFMF’s 2009 Gold Medal winner “The End of All Things
