RICHARD3 to make world premiere at 2014 LAFF
The Lewiston Auburn Film Festival (LAFF) is proud to announce Boo Dog Film’s historical farce, Richard3 will make its world premiere at the fourth annual film festival, taking place April 4-6, 2014.
Much like The Peloton Project at the recent LAFF festival, Richard3 will debut at the Franco American Heritage Center in downtown Lewiston, but that is where the similarities end. The similarities to Shakespeare’s original work run a little deeper. After a long civil war between the royal families of York and Lancaster, England enjoys a period of peace under King Edward IV and the victorious Yorks. But Edward’s younger brother, Richard, resents Edward’s power and the happiness of those around him and begins to secretly plot and kill his way to the throne.
In Boo Dog Films’ version, Richard’s confidant, Buckingham, discovers an old mystic who conjures the original script of William Shakespeare. With a chance to change the outcome but a refusal to actually read the entire story they embark on a true comedy of errors that ultimately concludes with a surprise ending.
“We are so thrilled to be part of what is turning out to be one of the highlight events in Maine,” said Miclon, who stars as Richard and directs the film. “After experiencing the premier of the Peloton Project at LAFF last year we are honored to have our film in the creative hands of such a great organization.”
Many Maine actors and performs who have worked with Miclon – often at the Oddfellow Theater in Buckfield – have parts in the comedy including juggling brothers Matt and Jeff Tardy, better known as AudioBody and Fritz Grobe of EepyBird, known for their Diet Coke and Mentos experiments. Other well-known Mainers in the cast include Amanda Huotari, Leland Faulkner, Davis Robinson and David Greenham. The film’s director of photography is is Emmy nominated Jay Childs of Portsmouth, NH
Richard3 has been shot on location in many parts of Maine including Buckfield, St. Patrick’s Church in Lewiston and Fort Popham in Phippsburg.
