Principal photography recently wrapped on “Sound Man,” an indie comedy marking the feature debut of writer-director Seven Ho.
Ensemble cast stars newcomer Wayne Pere and Eliane Chappuis. Also appearing are William Forsythe, Wes Studi, Danny Trejo, John Koyama, Nick Stahl and Tamlyn Tomita. Making his acting bow is Matt Sorum, drummer from rock band Guns ‘N Roses, who also will contribute to the film’s soundtrack.
The Mountainair Films production is produced by Alton Walpole (“A Passion in the Desert,” just acquired by Fine Line,) co-produced by Newman/Tooley Films and John McMahon, and exec produced by actress Chappuis and Franz Wassmer.
Pic, shot on location in Santa Fe, N.M., recounts the turbulent life of a brilliant but iconoclastic Hollywood sound mixer.
Pere’s film credits include “Professional Man” and “Eye for an Eye.” Chappuis will be seen in the upcoming feature “Death Valley.”
Ho, who scripted “Sound Man,” has directed documentary “Asian Pride,” about gangs in Los Angeles, and TV pilot “The Action Crew.”
