Get Ready For I, Creator — A Direct To DVD Release

Indie filmmaker Mike Cervello and his company Modern Day Myth Productions are releasing their first feature film, the science fiction fantasy drama,
“I, Creator” Spring 2010. The movie was shot in Southold, Long
Island in December, 2008 and at Forrest Park in Queens in March, 2009, and
stars several local actors.

As with any independent production, creativity makes up for small budget. In
Southold, a cottage in White Blossom Homes doubled as both a military facility
and a scientist’s home. Cervello and Director of Photography Rich Drezen (from
Long Island) went in front of the camera to play soldiers. Rich stepped in when
an actor pulled a no-show for a critical scene, leaving Mike to work as a one
man crew, running camera, sound and lighting.

In the film, Dr. Robert Bruno (Mark Fernandes) is commissioned to reverse
engineer cyborg Gail Storm (Galina Friant), taken from her home planet Delta
Four in the Alpha Centauri star system. Bruno is to make an army of super
soldiers to kill terrorists. Before he does that, Bruno secretly builds a
daughter, Angela (Christina Orloff) – a prototype super soldier – with firmware
never to kill humans or allow other machines to kill. Bruno’s defiance is
discovered and the family battles the Military who are ready to unleash new
cyborg killers onto the battlefield.

Harlan J. Strauss plays Lt. General Steve Dalby and Darren Assante plays an
ex-Delta Force captain. Cervello’s story takes place in 2062 to commemorate the
centennial of Artificial Intelligence research, which began in the 1960s.

“I wanted to make a science fiction movie that is basically Frankenstein for
the 21st Century, with a twist,” says Writer/Director Mike Cervello. I, CREATOR
is a micro-budget production, financed by Cervello, who is releasing the film
direct to DVD. “I emptied out my 401K during the 2008 stock market crash in
order to make a low budget movie that has a story of social value – the
self-destructive nature of humans – because it’s something I feel very strongly
about,” says Cervello.
