Cofa Production’s much anticipated stop-motion animation film Fall of the House of Usher is scheduled to make its San Antonio debut, March 11, 2010, at the Alamo Drafthouse Park North (618 NW Loop 410) with screenings at 7:00 and 9:00 PM. Quality, first-rate film productions are becoming something to be expected from the Alamo City film community, and films such as Usher are raising the bar.
On the eve of its San Antonio debut, Missions Unknown talks to Fall of the House of Usher creator Eric Fonseca. Thanks to Left Foot Red Productions, the official video provider for Missions Unknown.
Fall of the House of Usher has been a labor of love for Fonseca, who has spent four years developing and producing the film. Fonseca recruited notables in the area film community to make the visually stunning film a reality. Fall of the House of Usher is unique in the fact that the film was written, produced, directed and edited by one person—Eric Fonseca—he was even responsible for the grand set design.
Continue after the jump for more information and a flashback to Fonseca’s previous short, Funeral March for a Marionette.
The film revolves around three central characters that include “E”, Roderick Usher, and Madeline Usher who are voiced by the multi-talented Rick Carrillo, Erik Romero, and Dianah McGreehan, respectively. All of whom have proven their acting capabilities with a string of films under their belts.
Area talent aided with post-production while the films musical score was written and composed by recognized music talent Ryan Fonseca. The mood of the film can be felt by through the visual scenery; however, the music truly moves the viewer into an emotional tug of war experience.
