“A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
FROM HELL HE RIDES is going to take longer to make than my previous 3 films which averaged 2 years from start to finish. I kind of expected this when I finished the script. Most if it comes down to the sets. I was very deliberate in the way I planned FILTH in terms of its environment. Empty apartments, balconies, abandoned buildings, alley ways were all chosen for reasons beyond their aesthetic. I’m not going to say they were easy to build but they were not back breakers. FROM HELL HE RIDES takes place in the typical locations you’d expect to see in a western; saloon, jail, cabin, blacksmith’s, and the all important main street. A simple online search will make clear the challenges ahead.
