INDIE MOVIEMAKER RICHARD CHANDLER RELEASES “GILGAMESH” TEASER TRAILER
Boston, Massachusetts – May 16, 2014 – Indie filmmaker Richard Chandler announced the release of a 12 second teaser trailer for his latest feature film, GILGAMESH. The trailer is located on the Facebook page of Chandler’s production company, Boston Film Family, LLC
GILGAMESH had been shot in Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. It is already listed on the IMDb – www.imdb.com/title/tt2323804/combined – and is expected to have its world premiere either at the end of 2014 or the beginning of 2015.
Produced, written, directed, edited, and starring Chandler himself, GILGAMESH is a mixed genre movie that contains an unusual hybrid of Sci-Fi, fantasy, horror, exploitation, and political thriller. It stars Joe Gannascoli (“Vito” from THE SOPRANOS) and cult horror sensation Melantha Blackthorne (the title character in the TV show COUNTESS BATHORIA’S GRAVEYARD PICTURE SHOW).
Also starring in the movie are Josh Davis, Emily Coleman, Oselito Joseph, Jon Pierce, Ray Hryb, Emilie Faith Lewis, Carver Riot, Peter Morse, Giancarlo Madonnini, Joe Victor, James Baker, Matt Colicci, Lilith Astaroth, Sarah Michelle, and dozens more.
The crew for the dystopian drama is comprised of some familiar faces that have previously worked under Chandler. Long time collaborators Simon Hannon, Steve Sandberg, Todd Therrien, and Richard Chandler Sr (Chandler’s father) worked as, respectively, Visual Effects Supervisor, Associate Producer/Production Manager, First Assistant Director, and Second Assistant Director/Soundman. New to the team were Director of Photography Andrew Zubatkin and Line Producer Angel Connell. Justin Briggs handled practical (on-set) special effects.
GILGAMESH will be Chandler’s sixth full-length feature. The native New Englander’s previous feature credits include SCROOGE IN THE HOOD (2011), HEAVEN AND HELL (2010), LEGLESS (2010), OUR KINGDOM COME (2007), and SONS OF PERDITION (2007). Chandler also created a locally produced, hyper-violent, web-based TV series called BOSTON MASSACRE that ran for one season.
