‘Homeland’ The Movie Begins Filming in Massachusetts Former New Bedford – Somerset Residents Bring ‘Hollywood’ Home
Los Angeles (PRWEB) April 2, 2008
“Homeland,” a dramatic view of post-9/11 paranoia, will begin filming in New Bedford, Massachusetts on April 5th under the direction of area ex-pat Don Burton. In addition to local businesses being used as an additional character, the film will be shot entirely by local film crews.
“Homeland” tells the story of a young man who makes a routine stop at his local cafe after a long, cold day at work. After ordering, he sits with an apparent suicide bomber who forces him to ask himself: “Am I living the life I was meant to live?”
Set in coastal New Bedford, Massachusetts, “Homeland” will be filmed at “On a Roll,” cafe. The location engages viewers with anticipation and familiarity: this restaurant could be your corner cafe.
“It’s important for us to film in a community that gives viewers a sense of familiarity,” said Don Burton, Producer/Director. “But, our most important goal is to build a bridge from Hollywood to the community that saw us grow and create opportunities for future film productions in the area.”
“Homeland” Writer/Producer Adam P. Cray also stars in the film as The Repairman. Cray has directed & acted in several short films including “My First” & “Two Devils Lunch”. Cray, a former resident of Westport & New Bedford, is a University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth alum (’97).
“Homeland” also features Tommy Whalen as Kevin. Whalen has written, directed and acted in various film projects, including “Pennywise”, “Last Seen” and featurettes for NBC’s “Heroes.” Whalen, a former Dighton resident, is a University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth alum (’07).
Producer/Director Don Burton is a creative director and editor who has worked on over 50 DVD featurettes for titles that include the 2007 Independent Spirit Award winner “Talk To Me,” “Taxi Driver” and “Pretty Woman”. Burton has co-produced documentaries in Brazil and Europe and edited the feature film “Ranchero” premiering March 2007 at the Sacramento International Film Festival. Burton is a former Somerset resident and graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth (’97).
“Homeland” is a collaborative project between Burton’s Flickering Spaces and Cray’s Cinemastar Productions.
