Synopsis: A musical odyssey that takes place in an uncertain time, RAPTOR is a short film from writer/director Marc Dickerson, photographed by Joshua Martin, with songs composed by Owen Byrne. It is a surreal journey into a comedic tragedy brought on by delusions of grandeur; and a story about the passion to create something new without knowing how. We follow Raptor, the volatile and charismatic frontman of Sound Dungeon, as he quits the band and sets off on his own towards his destiny as the superstar he believes himself to be. Nothing will get in his way. He is Raptor. Produced by Broken Brain Pictures & Larc Productions.
Raptor is coming! A musical odyssey starring Robert Malone, who wins NoBudge actor of the year for his 3 films, films which have taken the seriousness of our site down 1000%. This one, our first musical, is miraculously even goofier than Fresh Starts for Stale People and The Confabulators, saying alot. Of course, Malone is Raptor, the volatile front man of Sound Dungeon who quits the band and hits the streets to become a solo superstar. His destiny hits a snag when his agent drops him for a new talent, a tall, fancy-dan musician named Dracula. Raptor clocks in with a genius running time of 41 minutes and a solid belief in the power of unmixed sound. It's simple: turn up the volume when Raptor whispers, down when Raptor screams. Interactive! Meta elements abound, early on, Malone opines, "let's get on with the narrative, " and moments later, a secretary breaks into song until her boss demands she stop singing because she's "only in this film for 5 minutes." Anyway, assuming immaturity, the film is funny, and the songs are catchy, and Malone means business. Raptor has arrived.
