The local film “One More Dream” will be screened from May 13 to 20
Murfreesboro landmarks are no stranger to film and television production. The city’s many locations have been used for music videos, short films and feature film projects over the past decades.
Now the city has another production credit to add to a growing list. This last film, entitled “One More Dream”, will be screened from May 13 to 20 at Smyrna’s Malco Theater and Murfreesboro Premiere 6 Theater.
Murfreesboro resident Ricky Burchell is the director, writer and producer of “One More Dream.” He tells Murfreesboro Voice that he’s worn a lot of hats backstage.
“I’ve done almost every aspect of film and video production,” he says. “I did sound, camera, lighting… I even ran for a coffee! »
Ricky is passionate about storytelling. He enjoys overcoming tough situations on set, working against manic production deadlines and getting results on camera when all hope seems lost. But Ricky isn’t just work. Even though he is serious about video production, he maintains a healthy balance between work and joy.
“I also enjoy spending time and networking with creative, fun, and interesting people,” he says.
Bringing a mix of fun, professionalism and artistic flair to the set, Ricky has lent his talents to commercials, live events, music videos, “process videos” and electronic press kits (EPKs). While commercial work is the bulk of what he does, Ricky is a seasoned professional in the entertainment world. In addition to directing several films, he also hosted and produced the INSP network television show “Master Mixx’s Lounge.”
A departure from all of his past work, “One More Dream” is a completely different project for Ricky. He explains, “I would describe this as a coming-of-age drama film set in [present] America today.
Although there are several special features of “One More Dream”, its most important feature for Ricky is the inclusion of relatable teenage characters. movie vViewers get a glimpse into the mind of a teenager dealing with fear. The film’s main character, Jeremy, a high school student, is embarrassed by a bully in front of the whole school. Faced with the double humiliation of this event and a bad breakup, Jeremy must discover who he really is in the face of insurmountable challenges.
The production of a film is itself a series of challenges that test its character. “One More Dream” was no different in this regard. Overcoming these challenges was made possible by to the many members of the production team. All of these crew members worked under the banner of Ricky’s full-service production company, B4 Entertainment.
“We have a team of people involved…” Ricky said. “We also had people from Murfreesboro helping us find locations and extras to be part of the film. I want to thank Trendy Pieces and Nancy DeGenarro for helping us with the movie. I also want to thank Dave and Shelby from Premiere 6 for allowing us to premiere in theater, and Kelly Beam from the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce for helping us promote the film.
Now that the film is ready for the world to see, Ricky invites audiences to enjoy “One More Dream” for its theatrical release.
“It’s always better to see it in the cinema. [There’s] nothing like seeing a good movie on the big screen with great sound,” says Ricky. He adds that he anticipates the film will move to streaming services after its theatrical release.
Ricky has big plans for the future of B4 Entertainment, including local live event broadcasts. He says, “I think Murfreesboro has a lot of potential. I would like to help be part of the expansion of Murfreesboro. Some events like Uncle Dave Macon Days and JazzFest should be shown on TV. I would love to be able to produce or direct something like that…”
Ricky also wants to create a film studio for the city. Should this project come to fruition, it would include event space, offices for rent, and facilities for video and sound recording.
“My ultimate goal is to bring creatives, community and business together,” says Ricky. “I love living and being part of the Murfreesboro community. Anyone interested in being part of the film industry, please contact me.
