Tangled 8 finds distribution will be released in theaters in US beginning in January of 2015.

Rangeley, ME- Seymore Films feature film Tangled 8 has found two distribution deals that will ensure North American theatrical, DVD/BluRay, VOD and Online distribution, beginning with a Premiere in Los Angeles on January 23, 2015, followed by a run in LA and selected cities throughout North America. VOD and online release will follow. The DVD/BluRay release dates will be announced before the end of 2014.

Tangled 8 is eight adaptations of the same script. The film explores the ways in which people of diverse social backgrounds, races and age manage grief through its different phases. Originally conceived as a single short film, director John E. Seymore re-imagined the piece as an anthology feature, based partly on the musical concept of variations on a theme. The script remains largely the same, but the action, visualization, situation and sound vary greatly with each new vignette.
Finally, Tangled 8 is a film about film. It pays homage to John Ford, Woody Allen, Peter Greenaway and other filmmakers who have created the visual and thematic language of modern cinema.

Maine Studios Announces “Alone in the Dark” Cast Members!

Maine Studios (Biddeford, ME) 3/27/2013- Today Producer/Casting Director Brenna Peak announced the cast members for the roles in Alone in the Dark, one of three shorts to be filmed in Biddeford, Maine 2013.“We are excited to be shooting Alone in the Dark at the end of June in the new home of the Maine Studios, we have been very happy in Biddeford and look forward to many projects coming through here in the future,” says Peak. On the same note, Director John E. Seymore is “happy to announce that Sal Rendino has joined the cast of Alone in the Dark and will play the role of Dr. Thornton.” This is not the first time Seymore and Rendino have worked together; they collaborated on the project Tangled 8 this past summer.

The role of Cecilia will be played by Madeline O’Brien, best known for her role in Gone Baby Gone. Seymore cast the up and coming superstar knowing that she is perfect for the role. “We all adore Maddie,” says Seymore “and we believe she has the talent and voice for this role.” Seymore and O’Brien met and worked together on the set Blessid, filmed in Massachusetts last September and Seymore was so impressed with her spirit and dedication that he was certain she was the only choice for this role.

Alone In The Dark is thriller about a psychologist, Dr. Thornton, who has been called to the home of a young girl named Cecilia who is hiding in her room and refuses to come out. When Cecilia begins a dialogue with the Doctor, he quickly realizes the situation is not at all as it seems- and this precocious girl may be the one with all the answers.

Seymore Films is finalizing the last stages of pre-production for Alone in the Dark and will be ready for production in late June. “We are almost ready to go!” says Peak.

Tangled 8 is eight adaptions of the same script. The film explores the how people of different social background, race and age manage grief through its different phases.

Tangled 8 was originally written as a short film, that is until director John E Seymore created the concept for the anthology.
