The producers of “Lake Runs Red,” an independently produced home-invasion horror feature, are proud to announce the upcoming release of their 5th and final character trailer on Tuesday December 29th, 2015, via their official YouTube channel, YouTube.com/LakeRunsRed.
This final character trailer, focuses on “Paul” the most mysterious and secretive character in the film. Paul has an uncomfortably close relationship with his daughter Lauren and an unconventional infatuation with her best friend Melissa (Lauren Morris). After years of an unhealthy marriage to his cold, unwelcoming wife Gwen, he yearns for a fresh start, away from the lonely seclusion of northern Minnesota. Paul is expertly played by Michael Hertenstein, a veteran theater and film actor, who most recently performed in a high profile production of “To Kill A Mockingbird” at the world famous GUTHRIE THEATRE in downtown Minneapolis, this past autumn.
"Lake Runs Red" employed a unique trailer strategy for their marketing campaign. The film released five “character” trailers, each focusing on one of the main characters from the film. This is the 5th and final character trailer in an initial series of five.
“The production team has been anxiously awaiting this final character trailer. It subtly and quietly adds a layer of doubt and suspicion to the narrative. It’s a game changer and a perfect way to end this series of vignettes. We’ve said all along that there was more to the story than meets the eye. Watch this one very carefully. I think you’ll be intrigued by what you see,” said Stephanie Riesgraf, producer of “Lake Runs Red.”
Added Jason Riesgraf, director and co-writer of “Lake Runs Red,” “Michael Hertenstein was a tremendous inspiration to all of us during this production. Michael’s dream was always to be a working actor. Right now, he’s pursuing his dream without hesitation. He’s found wonderful success so far, and we’re so thankful that he donated his considerable performance talents to “Lake Runs Red.”
