Troma Entertainment Presents:
Vincent Turturro's "
unapologetically gross" Acclaimed Dark Comedy,
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, N.Y., July 24, 2017 - Greetings from Tromaville!
Troma Entertainment, the longest running truly independent film company in American history, is proud to announce the acquisition of Vincent Turturro's acclaimed dark comedy
Victor Goodview -
it was announced today by Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and creator of
The Toxic Avenger
"Strikingly dark and profusely funny,
Victor Goodview is a good view anytime! We are very excited to distribute Mr. Turturro's masterpiece of drug fueled constipation hilarity!" stated Lloyd Kaufman.
"Shit happens...if you're lucky."
In the Yonkers ghetto - on the outskirts of New York City - aimless white-boy-millennial Victor finds himself without a job and short on the utility bill. To make matters more...uncomfortable, he hasn't had a bowel movement in longer than he can remember.
Victor seeks solace by making friends of dubious character, smoking crack of dubious quality, and pursuing women of dubious intent. As Victor readies himself for his desperately needed dead-end job interview, the consequences of his lifestyle catch up with him.
"Victor Goodview reads and watches like an anxiety dream on steroids
. It is druggy, bitter, and full of pain, but also awkwardly hopeful...Recommended for the intellectual horror fan who is looking for something to break up their regular viewing timetable."
Director Vincent Turturro on the making of Victor Goodview, "Victor Goodview was a maiden collaboration that's turned our dream, delusion, fantasy (whatever you want to call it) into a tangible one. To use an AA aphorism Vic might espouse in a future sequel, we faked it till we made it. From toiling to pare down an offensively long 242 page script, dickering through preproduction, to ultimately frittering proudly our life savings on the project, we spearheaded our ultra low budget, self funded feature and now await the world's reaction to its scatological splendor."
Victor Goodview is the first feature-length film by Director Vincent Turturro. Having fostered a life-long love of storytelling, Turturro spent over two years bringing Victor to life. In the interim, he was brought on to co-direct a short film, Belief, which premiered at YoFi Fest in Yonkers, NY. Currently, he is at work on several screenplays as well as developing Larkin-Stanhope's new feature Arbor Day.
At the age of 13, Jerome Raim started making "films" (one to three minute unmanned tripod shots of semi-choreographed fist and gun fights). He eventually came to the realization that there was more to filmmaking than sound effects and fake muzzle flashes. During his film studies at Paris-St Denis University, he developed an affinity towards new wave and vérité cinema. This would be the foundation for the logistical and esthetic approach to making Victor Goodview a reality. When not working on passion projects, Jerome specializes in post-production workflow optimization.
About the Cast
Born in Texas and raised in Santa Fe, NM, Winston moves to NYC to study theater at Sarah Lawrence College. Graduated in 2010. Studied improv at the People's Improv Theater. Appeared in various off-Broadway shows before being cast as Victor. Winston also worked as a Sound recordist in film and television. Then one fateful day, Winston had jury duty and got bitten by the lawyering bug. He currently lives in Boulder, CO, where he attends Law School at CU.
RICK (AKA BLACK)
Kenneth Borland makes his principal debut as the character Rick, aka "Black" in the feature film Victor Goodview. He has performed on numerous world tours as a dancer for the legendary Hip-Hop icon MC Lyte prior to transitioning into acting. Other notable films he has worked on include Beloved, The Bounty Hunter, How Do You Know, and Law Abiding Citizen. Kenny or Kensington as his friends call him grew up in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to New York City to pursue a career in entertainment. He continues to study his craft with Shiek Bey at Ripley Grier Studios and has several projects in the works. He would like to thank his family and friends for their continuous support.
Tammi is a native New Yorker, born and raised. She grew up in the gritty 70s when folks were afraid to go to Times Square, graffiti covered the subways and porn showed full bush. She has had the pleasure of working with such industry notables as John Leguizamo, Whoopi Goldberg and Charlize Theron. Her most recent credit is co-creator and lead in the critically acclaimed comedic web-series known as Get Some, which is enjoying its 2nd season on kollideoscope.com. Currently she co-hosts a monthly comedy show at Gotham comedy club called The Lozada Lowdown Live.
Jaime Sloan is an actor, writer, and classically trained singer working in New York City. Born and raised in Boston, she fell in love with performing arts from a young age and knew it was something she had to be a part of. Whether it was with music or theater, Jaime felt right at home onstage and the most available to be the truest version of herself. Armed and ready with a wicked sense of humor and a Vocal Performance degree from McGill University, Jaime moved to New York City to pursue her dreams as a performing artist. Always an intellectual and forever a deviant, she has been one to push boundaries, ask the tough questions, and call it like she sees it (insert encyclopedic novels and a neat scotch with a Cuban cigar here). She has always had more fun bending the rules than actually following them. Jaime is not one for labels or boxes; so check your preconceived notions at the door.
Kathleen saw a small platform in the late part of last century and knew she was destined to perform. At the age of three, she vowed to follow in the footsteps of many before her, inexorably falling into the role of the jester. She spent much of her time traveling the country, picking up appearances wherever she could. Now, after settling into the New York scene, Kat is a proud member of several acting unions, and a recipient of a MFA from UCLA. Currently K.M is developing a unique puppet extravaganza with the talents of Rocco George.
