When Crispus Attucks and his associates confronted the Redcoats 242 years ago seven people were killed The event, popularly known as the Boston Massacre, helped set the stage for a revolution.
In our various crimes and murders and mob wars, we have had far more casualties and what does that lead to? A webseries of course. The Boston Massacre has started production and will be filmed over the next several month.
Now on March 5 1770, nobody got up in the morning, citizens or British soldiers, and said, “let’s have a massacre.” While making the movie, Scrooge in the Hood, the production company, Boston Film Family, made a spoof trailer of a few themes, the original Death Wish Movie, 80s cop stuff, the renegade detective, lots of death and destruction. All of it done with undertones of humor. The “fake” trailer worked well enough that people wanted to see it made.
Richard Chandler, the impresario behind The Boston Massacre, has been directing movies for about seven years. About a year ago, he started Boston Film Family as an L.L.C. BFF, L.L.C. is an independent film company. The Family will be making Boston Massacre. It will have a noir aspect. Richard knows there is a lot you can do with that lighting and mood.
So Richard is set to direct. Not so fast, this is going to be a festival of directors. Well known local actor Bill Jacques will make a directorial debut in episode 1. Mathew Fisher, most recently of DJ Stan Da Man in post production will do the second show. The recently released Letters to Annabelle webseries was the work of busy Seng Varipath. He has taken time out of a lively schedule to direct the third. Jessica Cook director of Sunblocked and Mark of the Dog Rose is next up. Finally, Richard will get his shot on the fifth episode.
It’s not like Mr. Chandler is looking for others to do his job as he just hangs out. Richard is working on Science Fiction project.
In literature, Gilgamesh is the first epic. Gil shared Woody Allen’s desire to achieve immortality not through his work, but through not dying. Unfortunately, he lives forever through someone’s poem. He is going to live again in Richard Chandler’s Sci-Fi Gilgamesh. According to the IMDB summary,
A military expedition in Siberia gone wrong. The existence of humanity is in peril as Inanna, Sumerian goddess of lust and war has summoned a giant meteor to destroy the planet, after being accidentally set free from her ancient prison.
this is an ambitious project and will call for some serious fundraising. Watch this space.
