Interview: Nicholas Michael Jacobs – NMJ Films Founder, Filmmaker, Actor & Composer (About Camo vs. Genevieve Releasing on May 1st, Music, Filmmaking & Motivation)

Today, we have the privilege of chatting with filmmaker, NMJ Films founder, actor, & award winning music composer, Nicholas Michael Jacobs from Philadelphia, USA. Nicholas talks about the upcoming Camo Vs. Genevieve Action Horror Short Film releasing to watch for free on YouTube on May 1st 2021, his filmmaking journey, music composition journey, his tips for novice filmmakers and much more!


Q1. Please tell us about yourself, and your work in the horror industry?

Nicholas: Well, I’m 22 years old now, I’m from Philadelphia and I’ve been an independent horror filmmaker for 2 full years now with multiple feature films and short films under my belt.

Q2. How did you start your filmmaking journey?

Nicholas: I started my filmmaking journey in high school when I attended a filmmaking class, I made my first short films there and I guess the rest is history.

Q3. When was the first time you watched a horror movie, and how did it feel to be introduced to the horror genre?

Nicholas: The first horror film I ever saw when I was a kid was Bride Of Chucky, and it absolutely captivated me as a kid, I was hooked after that.

Q4. The soundtracks which you have created for your projects are professional quality. From where did you learn music composition, and when did you start composing music for the first time? 

Nicholas: Ironically enough, I actually never learned how to make music, I taught myself while composing the score to Urban Fears. Before scoring that film I had no prior knowledge of making music at all and that soundtrack actually won me my first award at the FEARnyc Horror Film Festival, so I must be doing something right.

Q5. How do you get the motivation to start, and finish most of the projects all by yourself? What are your tips for those who find it difficult to do things all by themselves?

Nicholas: I just want to create and I have a passion and a drive to create these things, I love watching advice interviews from filmmakers that I look up to, that always motivates me more too. I would say find a story that you love and do that, just run with it. Don’t look back until it’s complete, also don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it, because you can.

Q6. Movie making and marketing can be stressful, especially during difficult times like these. What are your stress management tips for filmmakers, and in general for everyone reading this? 

Nicholas: I would say do something small just to scratch that itch because that’s part of the reason why I’ve been doing shorts lately. It’s harder for me to do a feature right now because of the limitations, but if you don’t want to make shorts then try something else that has to do with filmmaking such as editing, scoring, etc. You don’t have to release it if you don’t want to either, you can do it for yourself and for practice, just keep that creativity rolling.

Q7. Your upcoming horror short film, Camo vs. Genevieve features two characters. Please tell us what inspired you to create such characters and the battle story?

Nicholas: My two biggest inspirations in making this short film would have to be Freddy vs. Jason and the more recent, Godzilla vs. Kong.

Q8. What challenges did you face during the creation of the Camo vs. Genevieve horror short film? 

Nicholas: We honestly didn’t really face too many challenges in making this film, but if I had to list something I guess it would be making Genevieve move. That can be very hard and time-consuming because we want to make it look as real as possible but we are working with a very limited doll during production.

Q9. Considering the current situation around the world, what are your thoughts about the future of cinema, and everyone working in the industry? Do you think digital circulation is the future, or there’s hope for traditional cinema? 

Nicholas: Great questions but I don’t really have a great answer to them because I just don’t know honestly, but I just hope everything will straighten itself out soon so the whole world can get back to normal.

Q10. Finally, why do you think the readers should watch the horror short film, Camo vs Genevieve releasing on YouTube on May 1st, 2021? Any other thoughts or information which you would like to share with us?

Nicholas: I think the readers should watch Camo vs. Genevieve on YouTube on May 1st, 2021 because it’s a fun little wild ride of a film. It won’t take up too much of your time either because it’s only like 3 minutes, 3 minutes of basically pure fighting, oh and there is a winner!

DarshD from Everlasting Hauntings Team:- Nicholas, thank you so much for your time and for answering all the questions to satiate the curiosity of the audience. We wish you, and the short film a lot of success!! 

Nicholas: No problem, thanks for having me!
