Short Film “Figments of a Father” to be Filmed in New Hampshire in August 
Jaffrey, NH Filmmaker Kyle Turgeon to Direct

PETERBOROUGH, NH – Things aren’t always what they seem. So the main character of Turgeon’s short screenplay Figments of a Father discovers.

The script features a young man on the brink of revolutionizing the world with his groundbreaking business idea, something that would effectively eliminate financial ruin for all.  During his stay at a luxury hotel to meet with investors, however, he discovers that things aren’t what they seem, and neither is he.

Turgeon began his filmmaking journey as a teen working on the feature film The Sensation of Sight, produced by Either/Or Films, which eventually led to his study of writing and directing at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Most recently Turgeon worked in the art department in both New Hampshire and Los Angeles on the Joss Whedon feature film In Your Eyes.

Producing Figments of a Father is Peterborough resident Susan Tinkham of Maywood Productions, who has worked in the film industry for seven years, including the art departments of such films as The Sensation of Sight, In Your Eyes, and Crooked Lane. The co-founder of the New Hampshire Society of Female Film Artists, a.k.a. Granite SoFFA, Tinkham is also co-producing The Point, a short film to be shot on Block Island, R.I. next year.

Turgeon and Tinkham have launched a fundraising campaign through Kickstarter, a crowdfunding website that enables contributions anywhere from $5 to $2,000 and offers rewards for each level of contribution.  The promotional video and additional information about the campaign can be found at:
