Minute Man National Historical Park to premiere

"The Midnight Ride of Me and Paul Revere"

Concord, Massachusetts, Minute Man National Historical Park will debut the new film, The Midnight Ride of Me and Paul Revere throughout the day on Saturday, April 18, 2015 in the Blue theater at Minute Man Visitor Center. The show will be part of Patriot’s Weekend and Junior Ranger Day activities, as well as a feature for National Park Week, April 18th to the 26th at the park. 


A production of Vaudeville Pictures, the film’s creators Bob Lawson, a Concord resident, videographer and history buff, and Peter A. Cancilla, owner of Boston-based production company Vaudeville Pictures, began the project on Patriots Day 2013, and filmed in many of the actual locations portrayed in the tale.

“When Peter brought me on for a new film for his Vaudeville Puppets Holiday Series, he envisioned the 4th of July story,” said Bob Lawson, co-producer and screenwriter. “I told him if you want to do a story of our country’s birth, let’s make it about Patriot’s Day and shoot it right here in Concord. Paul Revere’s ride and the ‘Shot Heard ‘Round the World’ are iconic in American history and we are lucky enough to live here where it all happened.”

“As a puppeteer-filmmaker, I aim to have my characters appeal to both adults and children. It’s a fun film, and you get a bit of an education too,” reflected Peter A. Cancilla, the film’s co-producer and director. “Telling this story put nearly my entire cast of puppets to work. And I had to create a new puppet- Paul Revere’s horse, Brown Beauty. It was one of the more challenging puppets I’ve ever built, but the character is a blast to perform.”

“The initial idea was to base much of the film on Longfellow’s poem, Paul Revere’s Ride”, says Lawson. “But then I came upon Steve Martin’s song, Me and Paul Revere which tells the story from the viewpoint of the horse.  I matched up Longfellow with Brown Beauty, and it was off to the races! Peter’s puppet magic and lots of fun music make this a really special short film.”

On Monday, April 20th at 12:00pm noon, you can meet the filmmakers and learn about the art of puppetry, filmmaking and what it was like to create a project with live action, puppets and music.

Admission to the Minute Man Visitor Center and the movie are free and will be shown continuously throughout the week.

The MGH Epic Trailer

In collaborating with Massachusetts General Hospital over the years, one highlight has been producing the video component to their My Giving Helps employee fundraising campaign. For the past three years, Vaudeville Pictures has produced a music video, which features employees’ voices and talents. For the 2014 campaign, MGH wanted to keep the tradition of presenting something energetic and a little off beat, but also try a new approach. Producer Peter A. Cancilla pitched the idea of creating a “summer blockbuster” movie trailer advertising the unique competition that will be held at the 2014 employee's day picnic which will kick off the fund raising effort.

P.L.U.S. Group Homes and Vaudeville Pictures Brainstorm on Video Updates

It has been two years since the Vaudeville Pictures production crew toured all five of P.L.U.S.' group homes in the production of their agency fund raising video, which outlines the care and services they provide to autistic adults and their families throughout Long Island, NY. Much progress has been made since then including promotions and additions among the staff and, most notably, the opening of their sixth group home designed to accommodate elderly consumers.  Peter Cancilla has begun planning with the executive director and board members about how to update their existing video in order to reflect these exciting and important developments.
