CJ Wallis – Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary (Interview)

CJ Wallis has been described as “Canada’s Best Kept Secret Weapon” A hidden Gem in the filmmaking world. He is an extremely talented and gifted director, actor, cinematographer, producer, editor and writer. You might know Cj because of him acting as Goody Two-Shoes in Dead Hooker in a Trunk but he also shot, edited , composed the score and worked on the effects team. Yet He isn’t even on the cover of the film. This made me extremely curious and decided to get in touch with him. Especially after he had left working on American Mary before shooting. Harley: Hello CJ, Thanks so much for taking the time to do this with us today. How did you start working on Dead Hooker In A Trunk specifically? CJ Wallis: Of course. Thanks for having me. Harley: you have worked on documentaries, music videos, shorts, scores you name it… but how did you start working on Dead Hooker In A Trunk specifically? CJ Wallis: I started working on dead hooker in a trunk about a week before the girls were starting their feature film version of a trailer they had done at their film school, which i was briefly teaching a film class at. one of the acting students didn’t bother to show up for the final project we were putting together so I played his role. It was a character semi similar to what goody my character in hooker came to be. and the girls were at the screening of my classes project and saw what i did and asked me. at the time, I don’t think they knew a...

CJ Wallis—Canada’s best kept secret weapon

Some people are just so talented that it really isn’t fair. CJ Wallis is one of those people. You probably haven’t heard of him, but Wallis is an enormously gifted director, actor, cinematographer, producer, editor, writer and musician. And to top it all off, I have it on good authority from a certain female FanGirlTasticstaffer that he’s cute too. Totally not fair. I first became of aware of Wallis when I saw Jen and Sylvia Soska’s Dead Hooker in a Trunk. As the character called Goody Two-Shoes, Wallis has a starring role in the Twisted Twins’ exploitation sensation, but he also shot and edited the flick, composed the score and worked on the effects team. It could be said that while the Soska sisters built the Dead Hooker car, Wallis was clearly the motor that made it run as well as it does. As a good-looking, one-man entertainment machine, you’d think Wallis must have wanted to be a performer since childhood. But believe it or not, show biz wasn’t his first career choice. No, Wallis harbored dreams of ice. Growing up in small-town Canada, Wallis’ childhood was all about hockey. During a recent conversation, the garrulous polymath recalled his rough and tumble first love. “Hockey in Canada is the great equalizer. Peace is achieved in our country by a mutual love of watching people beating the hell from one another.” When not tending goal for his team, Wallis and his dad spent hours playing an improvised game called Minis, which was “essentially a basement hockey equivalent of Pong,” Wallis recalls. “The room was fairly small and the ‘puck’ was often some unnecessarily overactive bouncy...

Musings Of A Morleysaurus Talks With ‘BB’ Star Jennifer Mae

After announcing the return of one of horrors favourite men, Mr CJ Wallis with his new movie BB, and then releasing both the teaser teaser poster, and then the actual teaser poster…I am now super excited to introduce you to both the star and inspiration for the film…and a fellow Jennifer to boot!!  Extra bonus! 🙂  So without further adu…..Miss Jennifer Mae, aka @purplestar420. How was it that you first met director/writer CJ Wallis?  And were you aware of his work prior to first getting on board this project? I went to Rock the Bells in L.A. and  tweeted a picture to Spitta saying he won smokiest set of the night.  Spitta retweeted my picture, and CJ put my tweet in the “Trust Fall 3” video.  My fans started sending me messages saying “OMG Purp, CJ used your tweet in Spitta’s video, that’s so bad ass” and shit like that.  My reaction was “Who’s CJ Wallis?!” They all told me he was a pretty big deal in the Jet Life world, so I figured ‘Hey, why not give him a follow?’  We quickly hit it off and next thing you know, CJ is in my chatroom and sends me a message saying “I see you typing BB”.  I got freaked out for a second, and the second after that, CJ had the whole movie pretty much planned out. How did Mr Wallis go about asking you to be his leading lady?  Did he give you a basic synopsis of the film, or had he completed the script by that point?  And more to the point, was he able to ask you without sounding...

Dread Central Talks About ‘BB’

Canadian filmmaker CJ Wallis dropped us a line this week to let us know about BB, a new project he’s about to commence shooting, and offered us the chance to debut its promo trailer. We have it right here along with more info on the film. Accompanying the red band teaser video are several promo posters and photos plus a behind-the-scenes look at star Jennifer Mae in New Orleans. Wallis tells us, “I’m making this for next to nothing and doing it all myself – from marketing, posters, shooting, lighting, all post, etc., except for two practical gore effects. We are shooting in Los Angeles for about seven days in January, and I’ll have it finished by the absolute latest February 23, 2014 (my b-day).” Ryan Nicholson, known for his special makeup effects work on “Stargate SG-1,” “The X-Files,” and “Supernatural,” is helping out with the effects Wallis mentioned. Synopsis: BB is the provocative story of a girl named Leah who, under the name “Candy Cummings,” performs strip shows online from her apartment for thousands of strangers every day, never fully knowing the extent of evils that could be watching on the other side of the screen. Newcomer Mae plays Leah Lamont/Candy Cummings. Three of Wallis’ previous long-time collaborators – Paula Lindberg, Troy DeLottinville, and Karen Kruper – are also attached to the project with a few more major cast announcements coming shortly. The soundtrack will feature music from Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Lovage, Pillowfight, MaryGold, and original score pieces from Brooklyn producer Harry Fraud. Taken From:...
