Casey Preston as Superhero Timothy Note
-- Chip Perro, the writer and director of the new superhero adventure movie, Mission Park, is a fan of the comic book genre. So it’s not surprising that he hired Steve Younis, the host of the world’s largest Superman fan site, to create the design for his movie’s website. Younis took over the Superman Home Page in 1996 and built it into a fan site that entertains and informs over 12,000 unique visitors a day. Based in Australia, Younis consulted with the Massachusetts film production company by email, and created a website for F.R. Perro’s comic book movie that highlights each of the Mission Park superheroes on the site’s main pages (www.missionparkmovie.com)
The Mission Park movie has a second Superman connection with the hit CW series Smallville. Mission Park cast member Casey Preston and Smallville star Tom Welling were high school classmates in Okemos, Michigan, and both graduated from Okemos High School. While Welling was the first to become a superstar as the TV heart-throb Clark Kent, Preston is first to don the traditional superhero garb of a cape and tights in a feature film. Preston’
s superhero character, Timothy Note, is a Boston crime fighter whose powers are dependent on the music he listens to. Note carries around a MP3 player to activate his incredible powers, and when he finds a song that gives him a specific power, he adds it to his music collection. Timothy Note is known as “the keeper of the songs”, and he is searching for a song that will give him the power to fly.
Mission Park is an electrifying comic book story brought to cinematic life. Five superheroes with egos, even more fantastic than their powers, are called to action by a city that once swore to end their brand of superhero vigilantism. Tessa Faux, Apple Orchard, Chris Ember, Timothy Note and Victor Strength are the Mission Park team. To protect their home turf, they must find a way to control their personal ambitions and work together to stop the Executive’s diabolical plot and advert disaster.
Mission Park is produced by Deborah Perro, written by Chip Perro, and directed by Chip Perro and Rick Perro. It stars: Sam Pannier, Lauren Guglielmello, Chip Perro, Casey Preston, and Christopher G. Pike. The original score was composed by Gregg Pannier, and principal photography was completed in August 2009. The film is in post-production with plans for a 2010 release.
