HOPKINS COUNTY, KY—Local filmmakers, writers, and horror/thriller aficionados, Steve Hudgins and PJ Woodside of Big Biting Pig Productions, plan on unveiling their newest collaborative effort, “Hell Is Full,” to the public on June 26th at Byrnes Auditorium in Madisonville, KY.
iSurf News recently spoke with PJ Woodside at the Glema Mahr Center, where she has been employed for approximately the past two years, and found out more on her background and Big Biting Pig’s 5th upcoming horror/thriller film.
“I’m originally from South Carolina,” says Woodside. “I’ve lived all over the South, in Missouri and Washington DC, but I’ve lived in Madisonville for almost twelve years.”
Apart from being well-traveled, Woodside also has a lush background in writing and the arts. With three degrees in English, an MFA in fiction, involvement with several theatre productions, and a history in film editing, Woodside had no problems transitioning into writing film scripts with her partner and Big Biting Pig Productions founder, Steve Hudgins.
“I’ve just always been involved with story-making of some kind,” stated Woodside.
Regarding their films, Woodside assured iSurf News that they weren’t just about generic scare tactics and unrealistic character decisions.
“What makes our stuff different is that we’re more interested in the story being strong and unpredictable,” said Woodside. “You know, just having another body around the corner insults my intelligence in some way. We try to have characters that are complex. I mean there’s a little bit of tongue-in-cheek in a lot of our movies, but we try not to go for the cheap shots.”
In addition, Woodside stated that Madisonville Mayor, Will Cox, will be making a special cameo appearance in the upcoming film, “Hell Is Full.”
