Interview with Director Roxanne Benjamin

The Gutter’s own Carol interviews Roxanne Benjamin who is one of the directors for the horror anthology, Southbound (2015), and is a co-producer for The Devil’s Candy and the V/H/S series. “Watching the whole come together as greater than the sum of its parts–these separate visions that we’re helping to bring to screen to make one cohesive narrative–is one of my favorite things about the process. I’d also say I’ve made as many multi-director/multi-writer films as I have because of a love for the writer’s room working in TV, and the entire process of TV production. Particularly with Southbound, we were all coming up with this world together and structured production more like a TV series than a feature. We’d be in my living room once a week breaking story and talking themes, leading up to production.”
