Richard Keller joins Compton/Myers Project, GOOSEBERRIES Returns to Post
Actor Richard Keller attaches to star in the ‘Untitled Compton/Myers Project’ (2007/2008). The comedy feature is slated to be released in Summer 2008, but could be seen as early as late 2007 in the film fest circuit. Information on this project can be found on the Current Projects page.
‘Gooseberries’ returns to post-production status for minor audio remastering proposes. The short film, originally considered complete in August 2006, has struggled to find its audience. A new marketing campaign was launched to raise awareness of the short film in October, but producer/director Christopher Compton has decided to pull the film and rework the movie, primarily the audio track. Music producers Soulbrite and Tree Top reworked the dialogue track in late October. “I just think we need to take a couple steps back here, and rework the whole thing. Sam (Soulbrite) and Tree Top did a really good job on the dialogue track despite the material they were given, it just needs to be nearly flawless if this movie is going to have any hope of contention. ‘Gooseberries’ will only appeal to a very small niche, it’s nothing like ‘Leaving Town’ or’ The Van Zandt Shakedown’ which will attract large audiences, it’s more of an artistic type of film that’s more dialogue driven; it’s Anton Chekhov”, said Christopher Compton.
