Austin Chronicle on WE ARE STILL HERE

With all the buzz of SXSW swirling, the Austin Chronicle wrote up a great piece about GEP pal Ted Geoghegan, director of WE ARE STILL HERE (starring Fessenden)!

Excerpted From The Austin Chronicle:

“When I moved out to New York, I had quite a few people here meet me and be surprised. They’d say, ‘I know who you are. Who’s your publicist? I don’t feel like I should know you from any of the projects you’ve been involved with, so you must have a really good publicist.’ Well, I don’t, so I guess I’m my own publicist.”

We Are Still Here follows a middle-aged couple (Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig) who move to a rural New England community to heal after the accidental death of their son. However, the Victorian house they have bought comes with dark and terrible secrets, and they soon realize that they may not be alone in their grief.

…As for the role of May’s husband, that part was written for another personal friend: Larry Fessenden, the uncrowned king of New York indie horror. While literally dozens of directors have given the writer/producer/director cameo parts in their films, Geoghegan envisioned something more for Fessenden. “He’s an immensely talented actor, and he has just such an expressive, incredible face, and I just wanted him to have a big, meaty role. If I had it my way, in my next movie, I’d have him in every frame of the thing.”

LATE PHASES to Premiere at SXSW

Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s LATE PHASES, from MPI’s Dark Sky Films and Zak Zeman’s Site B Productions, with Fessenden and Brent Kunkle producing for Glass Eye Pix, has been selected for the Midnighters section of SXSW 2014! Get all the details on the film’s World Premiere at SXSW.com.

Synopsis:

Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst…
