Villani-Rockhill Productions, Inc. of Stuart, Florida, Prepare to Shoot Their
Feature-Length Film, U.S.S. SEAVIPER, in South Florida

Crashing DC3’s, gun battles, and top secret meetings, are just a few of the scenes that a regional production
co-op headed by Villani-Rockhill Productions will be filming in Martin, St. Lucie, and Palm Beach Counties
over the next 3 months.

Villani-Rockhill Productions in co-operation with Statusfilms, Shoreline Production Services, Saturn Sound
Studios and TC Video will film eight scenes from the upcoming feature film, USS SEAVIPER, a World War
II submarine combat film. The story is about a submarine that discovers uranium on an island occupied by
Japanese and German soldiers in the south Pacific, while the Navigational Officer and Chief of the Boat
struggle for power, and USS SEAVIPER is hunted and depth charged by a Japanese destroyer.

Scene four, a “top secret” meeting that takes place in Hawaii during August of 1944 between Vice-Admiral
(Ralph VILLANI) and the Commanding Officer of SEAVIPER, Captain Culpepper (Steve ROTH), will be
shot at the historic home of Bill and Anne Krueger-Stimmell (Anne’s father, Karl Krueger, the former Mayor
of Stuart, Florida) on Saturday, June 28 from 7:00 am till 5:00 PM.

Director of Photography, Jon Schellenger, has chosen the RED camera for this project. USS SEAVIPER will
be shot on locations in south Florida as well as aboard an historic WW II submarine the USS DRUM, located
at Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, Alabama. Additional locations will be shot in Wisconsin and New
