Movie Trailer: Pictures of Superheroes

By Mike Everleth ⋅ January 19, 2012

Pictures of Superheroes is the debut feature comedy by Austin-based filmmaker Don Swaynos, who previously has directed numerous music videos, short films and documentaries.

Marie (Kerri Lendo) is hired as a maid by businessman Eric (Shannon McCormick) who also asks her to pretend to be his wife to seduce his clients. While cleaning Eric’s home, Marie becomes close to Joe (John Merriman), an aspiring superhero artist who also lives in Eric’s house, although unbeknownst to Eric.

Swaynos first came to the attention to the Underground Film Journal with his hilarious short film In Defense of Definitions, which screened at the 2007 Austin Underground Film Festival. The Underground Film Journal also favorably reviewed the compelling Iraq war documentary Year at Danger that Swaynos co-directed with National Guardsman Steve Metze.
