John Threat, Creator, MONSTERS

Thursday Interview John Lee

Cast of Monsters!

***The Thursday Interview is a showcase for creators, innovators and troublemakers to share news and insight about the creative impetus & inspirations behind their latest projects. This week, John Threat, a drifter who lives to entertain us all.

Name: John Threat

Occupation: A drifter who specializes in counterfactual thinking and writing well thought out pieces. Kinda like the anti-Nelson George.

Motto: Dubium sapientiae initium. Descartes said that shit. I dont know what it means. Sounds cool as fuck.

My current project is….
….Monsters! It’s a show about these two room mates dick and dash who live together and can’t stand each other. The fight, they curse, they drink and smoke, just like all other roommates, except they are monsters and every episode a band comes thru to rock the house and then they eat ’em.

I got the idea for the project….
…Some have traced it back to a chick with tattoos I banged once, but I came up with it while standing in the desert in Utah pissing on some artifacts and then wrote it in Connecticut Muffin in NY on a iPad betwixt mocha and a croissant. I’m kinda a dick.

The production process for the project is….

Thursday Interview John Lee Monsters!


It was 100 laughs the whole way except when it wasn’t. It was mega pass out type hot, it was dangerous, there was vomit , blood, sweat and tears, and torn miscuses. It only got finished because it was funny 95% of the time.

My favorite production memory is….
Well, probably when a actor tripped in front of a female actor and cursed me out like a dog on camera, which is the wrong thing to say, but the right thing would be to say Alex when he performed in Speedos the Tetris dance of love.

What’s next….
Weed*star! A rocking combination game and film and delivering weed to people in New York City!

Shout outs to:
Marc Raco and Daniel Wolfe who play the lead characters Dick and Dash who fucking rock and I owe big time, Jessica Bledman who had my back both as art director and personal crisis management and Corey Ulric who took on the herculean task of shooting and lighting this beast rain or shine and commercial director Diane Martel who liked the script day one and jumped on to help produce it and mega shout out for bands that came thru to rock the house (Makeout, The Shondes, and Game Rebellion) just for beer and all my friends that gave their pennies on Kickstarter!
