Paul Wesley Talks “Before I Disappear” With Collider

From writer/director Shawn Christensen, the indie drama Before I Disappear (playing at the SXSW Film Festival) tells the story of Richie (Christensen), a man at the lowest point of his life who gets a call from his estranged sister (Emmy Rossum), asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece (Fatima Ptacek) for a few hours. As the night progresses, Richie finds himself caught in a battle between his two bosses, Bill (Ron Perlman) and Gideon (Paul Wesley), and soon figures out that maybe there is something else to live for.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Paul Wesley, who also served as a first-time producer on the film, talked about how he came to sign on for this project, how gratified he feels about the positive response the film is already getting, how involved he was in stretching the story from a short film (which won an Oscar) and shaping it into a full-length feature, how he also came to be acting in the movie, how different this character is from what he’s known for, how collaborative Shawn Christensen is, as a filmmaker, and how involved he was in the post-production process. He also talked about trying his hand at directing, for the first time, with an episode of his CW series The Vampire Diaries, the experience of directing himself, that he’d like to direct a feature once his time on the show is done, and the type of projects he’s looking for.

Collider: Since this is your first credit as a producer, did you sign on during the development from short to full-length feature?
PAUL WESLEY: Yeah. The director, Shawn Christensen, is one of my closest friends. I’ve known him since I was 16. I’ve always been a fan of his, and he’s always been a fan of mine. I’ve always supported his writing and found it to be incredible. We’ve always talked, over the years, as friends and collaborators. He shot Curfew, the short film, and prior to it winning the Oscar or getting any acclaim, we started talking about adapting it. I had seen it and thought it would make a great full-length feature. And then, it very fortuitously became this big thing and won an Oscar, which allowed us to get financing. All the chips just fell in the right place.
When you’re making a smaller character piece like this, it must have really helped that the short won the Oscar.
WESLEY: Yeah. It’s just hard, these days, from what I’m told. This is really my first credit as a producer. It’s really difficult to get financing on a movie unless you’re an A-list star, or it’s a horror movie. You’re either a blockbuster or you’re some sort of genre film that you can make $100 million off of. Making a movie like this, our budget was tiny, but the success of the short was obviously the reason we were able to do all of this.

Paul Wesley on His Directorial Debut

Paul Wesley waited patiently for four seasons before sinking his teeth into directing an episode of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries.
“I was very strategic,” says the actor, who plays angsty bloodsucker Stefan Salvatore. “After I shadowed directors and sat in the editing room, they finally said, ‘OK, let’s give it a shot.’”

Wesley goes behind the camera for April 17′s twisty episode, which focuses on the Travelers’ occupation of Mystic Falls and troubles in the show’s supernatural purgatory. “I was expecting some hazing from the cast,” Wesley says, “but everyone was so supportive.”
