Brings “Active Shooter” Production To University
For Action Filming
(Los Angeles, CA — May 2, 2012) Internationally known as one of America’s finest screen and television villains of our generation Patrick Kilpatrick and his companies Uncommon Dialogue Films, Inc. (UDF) and Hollywood International Film Fund, Inc. (HIFF) are teaming with the Film Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania and the Edinboro University Police Department to film a large segment of the international action feature “Active Shooter” in and around Edinboro University May 5th to May 12th.
“Active Shooter”, Executive Produced by Dr. Michael Angelletta, conceived, directed and produced by Kilpatrick, director of photography Ramin Ramipour, and starring a cadre of military, police and Hollywood talent including a wide assemblage of international stars as well as regional talent, is a multilayered, story within a story action wide-release feature film dealing with one of international societies’ greatest threats.
“The project is conceptually cutting edge, broad audience attractive, laced with action and dynamic human values,” UDF/HIFF is completely devoted to leading a worldwide audience to brilliantly arresting stories and dramatic realms never before visited,” said Kilpatrick. “We’re privileged to work hand in hand with this extraordinary university and their law enforcement heroes and with the outstanding film artisans percolating throughout the Erie area.”
Kilpatrick’s worldwide reputation as an actor of 120 plus films and television shows — from Steven Spielberg to Public Broadcasting — together with the co-producing talents of Lt. Eric Kraus of Edinboro University Police and filmmaker John C. Lyons, plus the logistical local expertise of Chief Clark D. Peters University Police, has resulted in an assemblage of tactical and cinematic resources usually relegated to massive studio productions.
