In the last few years, Buffalo State College’s Television and Film Arts program has produced a growing number of talented young artists and filmmakers whose work has received increased recognition and attention from those involved in the WNY filmmaking community and beyond. Two such filmmakers, Jake Plumeri and Jack Petrillo, are proud to present their ambitious new web series, Stringer’s End.
The mystery-thriller series focuses on Rory Barnes, a college student and journalist who finds himself suffering from amnesia and memory loss, haunted only by visions of a mysterious girl he’s convinced has gone missing. As he sets out to uncover the girl’s identity, he finds himself journeying deeper into the rabbit hole of his dreams and memories, finding unlikely allies as well as unexpected dangers lurking behind the facade of his seemingly normal college town. Meanwhile, the sudden emergence of a new designer drug on campus raises even more questions than answers, leading Rory to wonder if he can really trust anyone, even himself, and just haw far he’s willing to go to discover the truth.
Series creator/writer Plumeri and director Petrillo began developing the miniseries over a year ago in June 2014 while they were classmates in the Television/FIlm arts program at Buffalo State college, with shooting commencing a few months later in September and proceeding over the following months. The series was funded through an Indiegogo campaign which raised a budget of over $2000. The production included over 50 individuals involvement, most of whom were students from SUNY Buffalo State and the University of Buffalo, a well as others in the Buffalo filmmaking community. The series also features an original composition from Louis Febre, an Emmy award-winning composer based in LA.
