Local Filmmakers screen tomorrow at the Greenpoint Film Festival

Though filmed in the wilds of New Hampshire, Amalgamated Picture Co.’s Epilogue was very much a local production. Writer/Director Dylan Allen, Producers Eddy Vallante and Rebecca Brice, Costume Designer Myra Flynn, Make-Up Artist Katie Jo Glover and Gaffer Hasan Schahbaz all live within a few blocks of one another in Greenpoint. Hair design was contributed by Nackie Karcher of The Parlour Brooklyn and even the main character’s name was inspired by nearby Skillman Avenue.

Epilogue follows an action hero and his latest love after the end of an epic adventure as they struggle to figure out what comes next. The film will screen as part of Greenpoint Film Festival’s narrative shorts lineup Saturday, 9/21 at 4:00 pm at 67 West Street.

You can view the trailer here:
