Paul Sullivan Film Retrospective Planned to Coincide with Melbourne Production

A film retrospective showcasing the comedic works of Paul Sullivan, a celebrated New York-based filmmaker, comedian and television producer, will take place on June 27th at 6:30 pm at the Henegar Center for the Arts in Melbourne, Florida. The event is hosted by the Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival (MIFF), The Space Coast Film Commission, and The Florida Motion Picture and Television Association(FMPTA).

Paul has produced and directed eleven short films and documentaries that have appeared in over 40 international film festivals, including the New York Comedy Film Festival, The Toyota Comedy Film Festival, The CMJ Film and Music Festival, and the Ajijaic Film Festival in Mexico. His film “Sergi” will be seen nationally on “Independent Lens” on PBS later this year

Paul graduated from the NYU Film School and has been a producer of such television shows as “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Comedy Central and “Dog Days” on Animal Planet. As a performer he has been featured on “The Moth” on Trio TV, X-Chromosome on Oxygen. He will soon be seen as a featured panelist in the upcoming HBO documentary “The Curse of the Bambino” with Denis Leary, Steven Wright and Bucky Dent.

Over the last few years, many of his films have been showcased at the Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival and Paul has been in attendance at many of these events. His enthusiasm for our community caused Paul and his brother, Ted Sullivan, to set their first feature film "First Time Caller" in the town of Melbourne. Ted is a writer/producer who has written for the television shows “Guiding Light”, “One Life To Live” and “As the World Turns” for which he received a Daytime Emmy Nomination and a Writer’s Guild Nomination.

"First Time Caller,” is their comedy set in Melbourne. The story is about a late night AM radio talk show host, Dale Sweeney, who is desperately trying to find an audience for his universally ignored show. During one broadcast, he receives a strange phone call in an indecipherable language. When two secretive government agents arrive investigating a UFO sighting, Dale deduces that the mystery caller must actually be an extra-terrestrial trapped in Melbourne and sets out to discover it.

Shooting is set to begin on July 7th and casting is nearly complete, with the following people attached to star. David Alan Basche is cast as the lead, “Dale.” David will be seen this fall in NBC’s “Miss Match” and was a star of NBC’s “Three Sisters.”
Chris Elliot will be co-starring as “Eugene the Gator Guy.” Chris, of course, started his career as a writer and performer for David Letterman before going on to star in his own, cult TV show “Get A Life.” He has also starred in “Something About Mary” and “Groundhog Day.”
Siobahn Fallon co-stars as “Larry Jean.” Siobahn was a cast member of “Saturday Night Live” and co-starred in films such as “Men In Black.”
Thomas Gibson co-stars as “Kyle.” Thomas was star of ABC’s hit show “Dharma and Greg” and co-starred in multiple movies, including “Far and Away” and “Eyes Wide Shut.” He recently starred in the TNT movie “Evil Never Dies.”
Fred Willard co-stars as “Mr. Fratus.” Fred is a true comic legend and has starred in a long line of film classics, including “Waiting for Guffman,” “Best In Show” and recently “A Mighty Wind.”
They are currently in final negotiations with Patrick Warburton (Puddy from “Seinfeld” and the live action “Tick”) and two stars from “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" Mo Roca and Ed Helms.

Paul and Ted Sullivan and their production company called Boy In The Drain Productions will be in attendance at the film retrospective and will be available to discuss their plans for "First Time Caller" with the audience.There is no admission fee but donations will be accepted at the door for the charity Unconditional Love, Inc. a local HIV patient care center for the poor
