Be Alarmed: The Black Americana Epic-Dear Father, is one in a series of 12 trailers that reference an epic themed film that does not exist. The final form of the film will be presented in ten trailers, a press-kit per trailer containing photo film stills, a synopsis, film posters, lobby cards, assorted ephemera. Dear Father, is a darker vision that the Hero/Heroin has within the epic and is void of color to represents a more nostalgic feel. This piece also represents the estrangement between me and my own father due to his mental illness, hence the Rorschach like reduction of the fireworks over the image of him.
Each trailer is set to release monthly over the year of 2012.
