Years ago, in the summer of 2012, ConFluence-Film embarked on a feature-film project that, alas, never came to fruition. One Corner Surfacing, as it was then known, permanently stalled in mid-production. A period piece set in 1972, One Corner Surfacing was a paranoid suspense thriller in the tradition of director Alan J. Pakula, with a sun-drenched Sag Harbor in the Hamptons providing a lush backdrop. Creative, financial, and practical troubles prevented us from completing the project. All this is a euphemism for saying that it was a bloody awful shooting experience. Now, writer-director Daniel Kremer is resurrecting that footage to comprise a whole new feature-length film, entitled Precious Wheels Above. Framing the previously shot material with all new footage and characters, Precious Wheels Above will tell the story of a pulp-fiction author known for his Hamptons-set potboilers. His intense regrets -- about his own family's past, the sudden death of his paparazzo brother, and his previous life as a respected author of serious novels and New Yorker-style short stories -- set the stage for a series of complex creative crises.
Shooting will take place in the San Francisco Bay Area throughout September of 2015. Joining the cast of the previous endeavor (Alanna Blair, William McKeever and Bob Van Lindt) will be Rob Nilsson troupe veteran actors Ed Ferry (Maelstrom, Used), Kris Caltagirone, and Penny Werner. Stay tuned!
