After watching the new FOUNDERS DAY concept trailer, you would assume it’s much more than just a concept. There’s a lot of substance here for just an introduction, and frankly, I’m already intrigued and shooting hasn’t even begun. This new trailer was filmed August of 2013 in Connecticut with near 40 cast and crew members, plus a whole load of extras. The bad news is the film itself isn’t anticipated for a release until 2015.
From the press release:
In FOUNDERS DAY, the quaint, suburban town of Fairfield is shaken by the shocking murder of high school student, Melissa Thompson. The prime suspect is jailed, and the residents look to the town’s 200th anniversary celebration for a sense of strength and normalcy. When more bodies turn up, however, the citizens of Fairfield grow increasingly suspicious of one another. With no clear motive, everyone is a suspect.
Founders Day is written, directed and produced by Erik C. Bloomquist, a Connecticut-based actor and filmmaker. His newest film, MIDNIGHT BREW, starring Kyle Edward Cranston and Greta Quezada, recently played the Trinity Film Festival and took home the Screener’s Choice Award. Another project, LAUNDRY NIGHT, will soon enter its third year on international television on ShortsHD TV.
Bloomquist and his team expect to shoot FOUNDERS DAY in Connecticut in Autumn 2014 and release the film in Autumn 2015.
