From the Press Release
After the opening of an online shop and the creation of a video distribution company two years ago, Oh My Gore! now gets down to the nitty-gritty co-producing Fever (working title), Romain Basset’s directorial debut in feature film. Romain’s previous works, videos and short films Bloody Current Exchange and Remy have already been singled out in the French genre-cinema industry. More recently he worked on the acclaimed anthology The Theatre Bizarre as Richard Stanley’s first assistant director and participated in the development of its wraparound.
Well-known talented artists will join this adventure since Catriona MacColl, Lucio Fulci’s muse who needs no introduction, will play one of the leading parts along with a totally British cast. In addition, Romain Basset will be assisted by Adam Kempton, an emblematic figure of the British cinema, who worked not only as a 1st AD for Ridley Scott, Alan Parker, John Boorman or Ken Russell, but also as an associate producer on Roman Polanski’s The Ninth Gate.
On the musical side, with a view to put forward something totally new, the famous French Glam Rock band Black Rain was asked to take charge of the score of the film, and the newly Parisian rock musicians have enthusiastically accepted to take up the challenge. Let’s just say that their first trials are more than promising!
For those of you who would like to contribute to this project that will be shot in January 2012, crowd-funding will be launched online in few days on the website Kisskissbankbank in order to benefit from a more significant budget and to enable the filmmakers to post-produce the movie in satisfying conditions. The film will be shot with the Red MX camera. More news is coming soon. Stay tuned!
