Coleman, Michigan (PressExposure) March 18, 2009 -- Writer/Director, John W. Bosley, will be showcasing his film, âThe Allan Carter Saga Part I: âAmnesiaâ,â at RebFest from March 29th thru April 4th, 2009. RebFest is a new web-based venue designed to promote the talents of emerging filmmakers. All films that are shown on the site are free to watch, but only during the festival dates.
âThe system is broken,â Bosley stated. âThe traditional route that an independent filmmaker is expected to take in order to gain a distributor via film festivals no longer works. Also, the recession makes the traditional film festival too expensive for the average audience member. We needed another way to reach out to the population.â
âAmnesiaâ is the story of a man, Allan Carter, who wakes up with amnesia. He doesnât know what world he has woken up to, but does know that he is looking for his wife and son. Allan finds himself being shot at, hiding in caves and secret tunnels, and being chased through the forest while constantly searching for the truth.
âI was inspired by the original version of âThe Planet of the Apes.â I liked how the film reached many different types of audiences and had some relevance to the time and the culture that watched it,â Bosley stated. ââamnesiaâ has been compared to popular TV shows like LOST and Jericho. Some audience members say it is similar to movies like Signs and Alfred Hitchcockâs The Birds.â
