Brauer’s Latest Film Lands Worldwide Distribution…and New Name

TRAVERSE CITY – Brauer Production's Indie Film Fitful now has worldwide distribution, along with a new title – Deadrise.

Initially, Writer/Director Rich Brauer wasn't keen on the name switch, but after making a couple of strategic edits that effect the tone of the film in way that is consistent with the new name, he agreed to the change. "The distributors are thrilled with the new version, and are hitting the ground running," says Brauer.

Deadrise, a suspense/thriller filmed aboard the historic ship S.S. City of Milwaukee in Manistee, is Brauer Productions sixth film and the tenth film the company has been involved with overall.

In the film, Paula (Renee O'Connor) is an inspector for the historic trust who visits an abandoned ship on a desolate waterfront. She meets up with the self-appointed caretaker, Vigs (Larry Joe Campbell), who had blindly made the application for historical status. Moments after her arrival, her car is disabled and she is far from town and is stuck for the night. She takes him up on his offer to spend the night. In the end, she discovers the truth about herself, and her life will never be the same.

Renee O'Connor has held numerous roles since she started her career directly out of high school, she gained a huge following as the beautiful and athletic Gabrielle on Xena: Warrior Princess.

Larry Joe Campbell is best know for his role in the Emmy-nominated sitcom, According to Jim, where he played Andy, Jim Belushi's affable sidekick. Campbell's long career has Michigan roots.

Deadrise will be available for purchase via Amazon and other outlets on April 5 of this year. BN
