Nicholas Paleologos behind 'Hypergraphia' indie

Former Massachusetts film commissioner Nicholas Paleologos has come on as a producer on indie drama “Hypergraphia,” starring John Hurt as the eccentric Boston diarist Arthur Crew Inman.

Paleologos, ousted last month from his state post after four years, joins writer/producer/director Lorenzo DeStefano and producing partners Dave Waller, Geoff McAuliffe and Michael McCarthy of Boston’s Brickyard Filmworks.

Paleologos’ feature credits include “Ghosts of Mississippi” and “Hurlyburly” while his TV producing credits include “In the Gloaming” and “Louis Brandeis, the People’s Attorney.”

The 155-volume “Inman Diary” contains 17 million words and covers 60 years of his life starting at the age of 8 in 1903. “I love the idea of Brickyard’s involvement because recreating the backdrop of Boston during the first half of the twentieth century is such an essential element of this story,” Paleologos said.
