Jeff Frumess would like to introduce you to his first feature length film – “Romeo’s Distress”.
“Romeo’s Distress” is a weird, quirky, genre-bending, piece of “no-budget” filmmaking. It is a Shakespearean, Gothic, Horror-Thriller that tells a story of a boy name James, his unrequited love for a girl named Jane, and her father’s sadistic (yet dutiful) response to it all.
Bones, If you like Monochrome, Shakespeare, John Waters, Edgar Allan poe, Teenaged Angst, Gothic Cemeteries, Surrealism, Cheesecake, Grandmas, Ukeles, Carrots, Melons, And Grave Diggers then you will surely DIG Romeo!!!
Like most tacky yet true cliches, Nick Bohun (Associate Producer, Sound, Score, Gaffer) and I spent 15 months pouring our blood, sweat, and tears into this little no-budget film. Partially filmed in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, it was shot almost entirely in Monochrome by the two of us: Myself on camera and Nick running sound (along with everything else sandwiched in-between).
