Marc Senter Talks the BlackBoxTV Short Film Going Down
We caught up with actor and producer Marc Senter over the weekend to chat with him regarding his role in Grace director Paul Solet’s BlackBoxTV short Going Down as well as his growing musical inclinations and more. Read on!
Senter, who came to horror audiences’ attention with his starring role of “Ray Pye” in Chris Sivertson’s 2006 indie darling The Lost, and who subsequently has appeared in Darren Lynn Bousman’s The Devil’s Carnival and Simon Rumley’s Red, White & Blue, riffed on his collaboration with Solet on the Angel Heart’esque Going Down.
“Paul and I met a handful of years back,” said Senter, who portrays “Gunther Clearly” opposite actress Dinora Walcott in Going Down, of the collaboration. “We've wanted to work together for a while now so it was a blast finally getting the opportunity to do so. Aside from being a great director, Paul's also a really positive guy.”
Shot in one day with sixty set-ups, the film noir Going Down was then cut in two days and scored by Austin Wintory, mixed and colored the next. See the results below.
As for Senter’s other projects, which include a return to his role of “The Scorpion” in the next episode of The Devil’s Carnival, “I am in pre-production on two crime thrillers that will shoot in New Orleans this year and into next,” he offered. (Writer’s note: This will be a return to The Big Easy for Senter, who produced and starred in the Lousiana-shot feature Brawler in 2011).
“Also,” Senter concluded, “I started a dance-pop synth band with [The Devil’s Carnival alum] Emilie Autumn called Platonic Friends, and it's gonna be huge.”
Gunther Cleary has his whole day mapped out, but a simple elevator ride shows him that life doesn't always go as planned.
