A new trailer hit the web for a short film called The Letter Carrier. One of the interesting things about this film is that it was funded by kickstarter (getting $29K over their initial goal of $50K) and written, co-directed and songs by Jesse L. Martin who plays Detective Joe West on the Flash. The co-director is Rick Cosnett who played Eddie Thawne, musical arrangements were done by Carlos Valdez who plays Cisco Ramon and all three were producers along with Patrick Sabongui who plays Captain David Singh.
A mother hides her family from slavery in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The children have grown up with a tale of a man known as The Letter Carrier. As the legend goes, he roams the mountains looking for children to sell as slaves. Painted against this historical backdrop, it is a raw, mysterious, and interpretive fable. Told through a cappella song, using original folk music, spirituals and a score using only natural sounds.
