BTG: You mentioned that there was an interaction of mystical beings in your TV series. Is there something you wanted to emphasize in your story?
QUINTON: Yes. I’m a huge fan of Practical FX Makeup, Jim Henson and the way that he has built functional worlds where creatures and humans interact. Blue Flame will have a similar feel.
BTG: What is the most important thing you can say about your heroes and villains?
QUINTON: James Dowling was raised not knowing his real family or history. With both sides, heroes or villains, the most important things to watch for are character development and the ever-changing emotions they go through.
BTG: You also said that your story was set in the modern world and realms unexplored. Was it a challenge to make a TV series like that?
QUINTON: Blue Flame is set in modern times and our hero James is drug into a world that has been untouched for 1000 of years. I don’t think it was hard for me to create such a world. I have a vivid imagination and sometimes my mind does not shut off. 🙂
BTG: You mentioned on your FB page that you hadn’t expected such a buzz around this show. What, in your opinion, was the most important factor in creating that buzz?
QUINTON: The buzz is amazing! I truly stand firm in believing that hard work prevails every time. And for Blue Flame I took a huge chance with the FX Makeup and way I wanted it. It could have either gone really good or really bad. I’m just so grateful so many people are enjoying what we have done and already have built a great fan base that is excited about the pilot.
BTG: What do you think, has fantasy genre changed in the last few years? If yes, what has changed?
QUINTON: Yes. I think it’s always growing, developing and changing. That’s not a bad thing.

BTG: When will your TV series be released and where it will available to watch?
QUINTON: We are hoping funding will come in very soon for the pilot episode. We have 8 episodes ready for production. In our investor pitch package we are using a self-marketed strategy that is amazing and if we don’t go network, Blue Flame will be on platforms such as Amazon Prime, Hulu and a few others such as this.
BTG: Thank you for your time. For the last question, is there something you want to say to the fans of this genre?
QUINTON: From the bottom of my heart, thank you for watching! This has been my dream since I was a child and you all mixed with a lot of hard work and dedication are making this dream real, so from the whole Blue Flame family, thank you!
