Maine Studios (Biddeford, ME) 2/22/2013-
The feature film Couples has been renamed Tangled 8. "We had always intended to change the name but wanted to wait until we had seen the final product before the announcement", Director John E Seymore stated. The new title is based on the title of the original short screenplay written by Bryant Mason. The film is in the final stages of Post Production and is expected to be completed early in March.
The festival season will kick off with the World Premiere of the film at the LAFF (Lewiston-Auburn Film Festival) on April 4-7, 2013. "This is the second year in a row that we have been able to have a world premiere at LAFF, following last year's premiere of You Can't Kill Stephen King (which also took home the Audience Award for Best Feature) and it is great to back there again this year", Seymore added.
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 is also a film about film. It also gives homage to the cinema that has shaped all of our lives; playing tribute to John Ford, Woody Allen, Mike Figgis, Peter Greenaway and many others, that have helped to create our modern cinema.
Tangled 8 was originally written as a short film, that is until director John E Seymore created the concept for the anthology. The idea was based on the classical music idea of variations on a similar theme. The idea of doing the same script, but told differently through action, visualization, situation and sound.
More news on the film will be announced including festival dates and times.
