June 24, 2010 (New York, NY) – Legendary rock musician Richard Barone (The Bongos/Author, “Frontman: Surviving the Rock Star Myth”) released his brand-new music video featuring his rendition of “Brick by Brick” recorded for the soundtrack of the forthcoming horror film “MR. BRICKS: A HEAVY METAL MURDER MUSICAL” this week.

Aside from lending his vocals and unique guitar stylings on his Gibson HD.6x-Pro Digital Les Paul to the soundtrack, Barone makes an appearance in the film itself. “Just when I was beginning to think I had done it all, I found myself on the set of 'MR. BRICKS,'” says Barone. “What a pleasure to be a part of this amazing ensemble and truly unique cinema experience...'MR. BRICKS' ROCKS!"

The film introduces remarkable tattooed muscleman Tim Dax, starring as “Mr. Bricks.” Other leading cast members include Scream Queen Nicola Fiore (Game Over, Chuckle's Revenge) and rising star Vito Trigo (Dark Windows). 'MR. BRICKS' also includes additional guest appearances by Lloyd Kaufman (President of Troma Entertainment/Creator of the Toxic Avenger), Shawn “Cool Duder” Phillips and M.J. Kelley (The Don and Murph Show), and Jamie Greco (Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, So You Think You Can Dance?).

See Richard Barone’s music video for “Brick by Brick" on YouTube.

The concept and soundtrack for 'MR. BRICKS' are the brain child of enterprising young film maker/composer Travis Campbell, who also served as the film's director. Campbell's concept was adapted to the screen by screenwriter Lauren Miller and the film was produced by Justin A. Martell under the newly formed, New York based independent production company, Ship to Shore Media. "MR. BRICKS: A HEAVY METAL MURDER MUSICAL" is the company's first feature film.

Travis Campbell & Nicola Fiore On MR BRICKS:


-Interview by Nic Brown-

Musicals. The glamour, the glitz, Gene Kelly dancing energetically across the stage. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John singing about Summer Loving. Whether it’s SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS or GLEE, some people love musicals and some people hate them. Now writer/director Travis Campbell has taken the plunge and decided to make an indie musical like no other: MR. BRICKS: A HEAVY METAL MURDER MUSICAL. This is a bold step that takes the traditional idea of a musical and turns it on its ear

Travis’s vision has attracted a number of artists to appear in the film, including YouTube sensations Shawn “Cool Duder” Phillips and M.J. Kelley (The Don and Murph Show), Jamie Greco (PDA Massacre, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead), and Lloyd Kaufman (President of Troma Entertainment and creator of the Toxic Avenger). The film also includes a guest appearance and musical performance by Richard Barone (The Bongos/Author, Frontman: Surviving the Rock Star Myth).

Justin Martell, the founder of Ship to Shore Media, found out about the project while working with Troma Entertainment and decided to throw Ship to Shore's support into the project by becoming a producer for it. Raising money for the film was a challenge according to Martell. "A member of my production company (who shall remain nameless) even had to skype with his shirt off in order to raise money from an older woman who had some to throw around!" Despite these efforts the project still came in with a "micro-budget" of just $3,000. This might not have been enough except for the efforts of everyone involved in the production, especially special effects artist Jessica Jade Jacob who agreed to work for costs on the project and who innovative ideas helped cut costs for the production's effects even more.

How long have you been filmming movies, what motivated or influenced you to become an actress? How did you get your start making films? How old were you when you made your first feature film, and what was the Title of that film?

I attended film school at my community college and worked as a projectionist when I was 18. That is when I met my friend Chris who had a love of horror and taught me the ropes and showed me my first Fangoria magazine. He wrote a script called "The 12th Victim" where I played Laurie Parks who is indeed the 12th victim. We made another one a few years later called "A Shadow Over Bales Hill" which won 3rd place at the film forum.

How many feature films have you already completed, in what Genres? And what were the Titles? have you had any starring roles in any of the films you have worked on? and whats the titles ?

It is hard to count how many really. Around 20 mostly in the horror genre. I did just complete a musical "Mr Bricks: a Heavy Metal Murder Musical" where I am actually singing which is something I swore I would never do. I play one of the leads named Scarlet. Last year I did "Ms. Cannibal Holocaust" where I play one of the leads who is called "The Woman' . There is also an interactive project I did called "Chuckle's Revenge" where you get to help choose the fate of my character "Kristin" and her friends. "Game Over" was shot in Germany with Timo Rose who is one of my favorite filmmakers. Starring opposite Debbie Rochon and Raine Browne and a solid cast of great German actors was such an amazing experience.

Who has been the most notable person so far to work with?

I am forever grateful for having worked with so many wonderful people. Debbie Rochon was the first person I worked with in the horror world back in 2007 on "For Christ's Sake". She is a very passionate person and artist and has inspired so many people she has worked with. When she said I did a good take, I believed it! And when she encouraged me to give the business a try, I did.
