August, 1976: Three teens driving on an isolated stretch of road somewhere in the Adirondacks of Upstate New York have a brush with a bizarre creature. Standing over 7 feet tall and covered in hair, they referred to it as a “beast”. Hours later, Abair Road was crawling with local and state police. Many of them recounted seeing the creature, as well.
Beast of Whitehall is part of a series of films called “Small Town Monsters” that focus on creatures unknown to science that become part of the lore and legend of rural communities. Beast of Whitehall has already screened at film festivals across the country.
The film is available for pre-order at the Small Town Monsters store at a special price during the month of March.
The official poster for Beast of Whitehall was created by Sam Shearon. Check out more of his work online at his Facebook page.
On April 2nd, the film will have its official premier at the Whitehall Athletic Club in Whitehall, NY and is a free event put on by the Small Town Monsters production company in association with the Whitehall Arts and Recreation Committee. Food and drink will be available. The event kicks off at 3:00 with a speaking presentation put on by Paul Bartholomew. At 4:00 the premier showing of Beast of Whitehall will begin, and it will be followed at 5:00 by a second showing. At 6:00, Seth Breedlove (film director), Brandon Dalo (producer/composer) and members of the film cast will field questions from the audience. There will also be vendors present including Maz Adams who did illustrations featured in the film.
The film was directed, shot and edited by Seth Breedlove and produced by Brandon Dalo (who also did the soundtrack) with additional assistance on the production from Zac Palmisano and Ronnie Breedlove. The incredible poster was created by artist, Sam Shearon.
