If you were lucky enough to catch the premiere of Fellpeller Studios “Road Runner,” which played as one of four featured films February 26, 2020, at the Main Art Theater, Royal Oak, part of the Fellpeller Studios Showcase, you certainly remember the main theme from this movie. Director Jason Allen had many requests for this song.
Featuring the talents of the band The Tempo, with Liam Rogers/Josh Bzura on vocals, Jason Allen on guitar (Jason also directed “Road Runner”), Josh Bzura on bass and keys, and the combined talents of Tom McCloskey and Nathan Moser drums and arrangement, this laid back groove can now be downloaded from iTunes and Spotify.
“Road Runner” is a 1970’s crime drama based on the character, Danny Landowski. A husband and a father to some, he is really a selfish, pool hustling criminal on the streets of Detroit who never got out of the game. With the help of his partner, Chris, he may have just found his way out – with one last job.
Written and directed by Jason Allen, Road Runner stars Justin Mane, Matt Szakal, Jesse Rapanot. Originally intended to be a school thesis project, the filming for “Road Runner” actually took place over the course of four months. July, August, September, and October of 2019.
In the opening credits, the actual locations where this story took place can be seen for a brief moment. The scenes in Detroit, Michigan were actually filmed during a popular music festival that was actually happening a few blocks over. Making things difficult to carry on with production
