‘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.

If you want to watch Hollywood movies online like I do then you’ll probably be interested in a way that you can watch movies whenever you please. It’s not that hard to do these days. You can sit at home in your own room with your computer or even running a connection to your big screen TV. You don’t have to spend all that much money compared with going to the cinema or renting a DVD. By having access to online movies you can actually watch a new film online soon after it’s been released by simply downloading it or streaming it directly to your computer.
One excellent aspect of this is that you’re not only limited to watching Hollywood movies online but you can also watch movies from all over the world. If you want you can organize your movie watching by countries or, what’s increasingly popular, by categories. If you understand another language you can watch a program from a foreign country. Movies from other countries these days are also routinely supplied with subtitles in English or in another popular language.
People are starting to become aware of the fact that what they are able to access through their computer far out performs what they can get through their local cable TV station or even through a satellite TV program. The beauty of the online services are that a person can download movies legally, watch them via streaming, or download to save for later, can view the movie in high definition, and are not limited to watching just movies online but can watch television programs, sports events, and other popular shows.
And don’t think because you’re streaming movies through the Internet you can only watch movies on your PC. It very easily to adapt your computer to a connection with your TV so you can stream shows directly to a large screen. With a wireless adapter you can also stream without a cable connection.
Despite what you might think these services do not cost an arm and a leg. They’re available for about the same price it might cost to go out to the movies once a month. The beauty of an online movie service is that you can watch a movie from any genre you’re interested in, whether it is action, thrillers, romance, comedy, horror films, or any other category of movie you can think of. You can even access classics that aren’t that easy to find these days. And if you want to watch new releases you can also do so without having to subscribe to cable service such as HBO. The only thing you need is in an Internet connection capable of high speed, your computer, and the freely available software.
