Samudranil ‘Sam’ Chatterjee Joins the Film ‘Seahorse’

LOS ANGELES – Veteran cinematographer Samudranil “Sam” Chatterjee (“Outdooring”) has joined the production of the film drama “Seahorse,” from producer Charles Roth.

“I am looking forward to working with Charlie and help share his vision for this engaging story,” Chatterjee said. “Charlie is known as a great storyteller with a passion for powerful stories inhabited by multifaceted characters that connect with viewers. ‘Seahorse’ is a great example of that with its compelling storyline and unique characters.”

The film follows the life of Tanner, an auto mechanic who lives in a double wide trailer with his wife Misty. Tanner wants children, but since Misty is infertile, he embarks on a journey towards parenthood that ultimately forces him to redefine his sexuality and gender and questions what it truly means to be a parent.

“It’s a great story with great locations that open themselves up for a lot of interesting framing and blocking choices that allow us to see the world through Tanner’s eyes,” he said. “I’m also interested in hinting at Misty’s breakdown throughout the whole story and how best to tell that visually and subtly over a feature length period. Misty is a character that slowly falls apart and questions her existence in this relationship and is ultimately the obstacle for Tanner to overcome and I’m excited to tell that side of the story faithfully as well.”

Chatterjee had recently worked on the short film drama “Outdooring” which was screened at South By Southwest International Film Festival earlier this month. His past work includes “Quinn’s Place,” a limited series set to air later this year directed by Charlie Roth, along with “The Shallows,” the shark thriller starring Blake Lively, as well as the horror-comedy “Charlie’s Farm” with Tara Reid as well as other notable films.

“Seahorse” is scheduled to begin production in June with release set for next year. It is produced by Bruno Xavier under BKX Productions in association with Grubsteak Productions.
