Exclusive Interview: Chuck Peters’

Q. How has your journey as a shooting survivor influenced your perspective on life and filmmaking?

Chuck: On life, don’t take any day for granted because today might be your last day on this great earth and always try to be as positive as you can be because having a negative mindset won’t change anything but bring you down more. And for filmmaking, always make sure safety is the number one priority, no matter if it’s from stunts to gun safety, all rules must be followed and be strictly enforced.

Q. What role do your health struggles play in shaping the narratives of your films?

Chuck: I like to put myself in each project I do, by either the character having ptsd or overcoming obstacles that I’ve often had to encounter. When I write a movie, I like to put a lot of my life in it in some way.

Q. Can you share a memorable experience from your transition from reenactor to actor?

Chuck: Well, to be honest, the most memorable thing is how different being in a movie is compared to reenacting. It’s a whole new experience and atmosphere than just doing skits but there’s still a level of experience and professionalism that comes with both. It was definitely a change though when it came to my performance of being in front of a camera compared to being in front of a live audience. I had to adapt quickly.

Q. How did you find the courage to pursue your dream of filmmaking in the face of adversity?

Chuck: That’s an easy question for me because nearly dying changed my entire perspective on life, making me realize that life is truly short and we only get one life to live, which is kinda cliche to say but it’s the honest truth to me because we could all die at any moment without notice. One minute, we are enjoying life and the next, we might be knocking on death’s door. So I knew if I wanted to go for my dream, I needed to go for it now and not look back and that’s when I took my leap and started to go for it.

Q. What lessons have you learned from working on projects like “Cult of Blood” and “River Beauty”?

Chuck: I got to learn from Robbie Lopez, Dan Gregory and, of course, Dave Sheridan how to be a better actor and improvise and how to make movies myself. They all taught me a lot to help me grow to be better and motivated me to become the person I am today in this industry. I truly enjoyed every moment working on the set of each movie!

Q. How do you balance health concerns like dialysis with your active involvement in the film industry?

Chuck: It can become very stressful and frustrating at times, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t get to me. I spend three hours and thirty minutes on a machine getting treatment, so in that time it does give me a lot to think about and time to work and figure things out. However, it is difficult sometimes getting roles because my schedule is not the easiest due to my treatments being three times a week and traveling is not the easiest to juggle but I do my best with what I’m given. And I’d say I balance it well dealing with dialysis. I have to deal with making sure I keep up with my health constantly between surgeries and constant sickness while trying to make sure I keep myself healthy to remain on the transplant list.

Q. Tell us about your experience producing films like “Half Dead Fred” and its impact on your career.

Chuck: Just being able to help Bron Theron out making his dreams come true was amazing cause he’s truly talented and very professional. That’s why I help produce films because I want to try and be the most supportive person for everyone and help everyone in this industry see their dreams become a reality. As for its impact on my career, it helped me gain more legitimacy and credibility in the industry.

Q. What advice do you have for individuals facing challenges who aspire to follow their dreams in the film industry?

Chuck: If you’re someone who is fighting a disease or has disabilities, do not let anyone tell you how high you can go or what you can and can’t do. When I first told people what my plans were, I was hit with “Well, your dreams were meant to be broken.” Don’t listen to the naysayers! You can achieve it if you truly work hard and stay motivated. It’s going to be tougher than most because you’re also struggling with your health and it will become overwhelming, stressful, and frustrating at times but it’s very rewarding. I guarantee this because I’ve been struggling for twenty-eight years now with my illness but I never let it stop me. So if I can do it, I have full faith that you can too! Have faith in the Lord’s plan and have faith in yourself and you will achieve your dreams!! And always remember you have support, don’t let the doubters get to you.
