Who is Zach Tuttle?
I am currently living in Florida with my wonderful wife to be, Haleigh, and dog, Delilah.
I personally enjoyed Black Diamond and Ivory Fist: The Power of Funk Fu. It's a funny title, don’t you think?
I am very happy and honored that you enjoy Black Diamond and Ivory Fist: The Power of Funk Fu. Yeah, the title is long because I really wanted it to be obnoxiously long.
Freddie Jarrett nailed it as the main character. I had the opportunity to work with him on Spilled Paint. Was it hard to cast him for the role?
Freddie is great! I first met Freddie on the set of M.I.T, a short film my buddy Ron T. Baker and I made, and he was fantastic along with being professional. Freddie was my number one choice for the part, even when I was writing the film, he was the only one in mind when writing the character Black Diamond. I sent Freddie the script when I was done with the rough draft and he said he was down,
which made me very excited.
Do you find the process of working with other collaborators difficult or essential (or both)?
It's honestly both but, the key thing is to have an open mind and be ready to listen to others while also keeping faith that everything will go smoothly. You never know what the outcome can be for any project and they might have an even better idea or a different angle that you never thought of.
An actor is being unprofessional. How do you manage the situation?
It depends on the situation but the big thing is being patient and being professional yourself. Actors are essential to the filming because their faces are on the line and they want to look good, by setting a standard for yourself and on set it should eliminate most things.
Are you working on anything right now?
I am working on a few things right now. Currently, my friends and I are working on a script for the O.I.F competition, there is the Orlando 48hr competition that I enjoy doing right around the corner, my friends and I have a few scripts in the works, and in November this year I am helping on a short currently called "Immortal Blood." I am always looking for fun and exciting projects and I can't wait for what the future will bring.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you guys, I am very humbled to be a part of this and thank you for liking my movie.
