Worldly Possessions is a new film written by Brad Hord and being directed by Robert Filion.|
This is the second time this pair has worked together. Previously they made a film call Mosaic 33 which is a science fiction tale of a woman who decides to reveal information to a reporter about what is going on in the Mosaic lab she works in. It has been doing very well on the film festival circuit.
Shelby, North Carolina and the surrounding area has been chosen as the city to film Worldly Possessions in and one of the locations picked was also used in the movie Hunger Games.
"I am very proud to be the Executive Producer on Brad's new vision! The cast is brilliant and Director Robert W. Filion is at the top of his game! I put my money on the best... and these guys are rocking it! Worldly Possessions is a Win Win!" - Darren Conrad Executive Producer
Detective Jack Gibson attempts to solve a string of murders related to an experiment substance called "X5".|
What makes this film different is that it will feature, along with live action, pixel art reminiscent of 80's video games like Mortal Kombat and Snatcher.
"I held an audition in Jacksonville back in 2010. I wanted to make a movie for fun. Nothing fancy...
But I had met Samantha. She convinced me I could do so much more with The Hollow Oak. And we have been at it ever since." - Chris Maney
This production has come a long way since the first audition in 2010. Some roles have been re-cast and a lot of effort has been put forth in scouting locations, blocking scenes, setting up and tearing down equipment, not to mention the editing and sound design.
The Strange and Unusual has just begun filming. What will we see when it's complete? The cast and crew of a cancelled reality TV series with one last episode left to shoot. What goes on behind the scenes and the personalities that one might encounter in a similar television production. Anil, has worked in these situations and is bringing some of the strange and unusual things he's seen to this film.
One of the principals of Strawhouse Pictures, Anil always knows that his partners have his back and can help him put together the pieces of the puzzle for a great production just as he does for their films.
There's a lot of talent here in the southeast. There's also some mighty big hearts in the Carolinas. A few of them are the producers, cast, and crew of The Perfect Place.
Written by Taylor-Grace Davis and Patrick Elliott the movie is inspired by Taylor-Grace's work with the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation. This organization, formed by Nettie Washington Douglass and her adult children, exists to carry on the tradition of her ancestors, Fredrick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. By creating awareness that slavery and human trafficking is still going on today, she and her family are following in their footsteps. Her son, Kenneth B. Morris, president of the foundation, travels the U.S. and abroad spreading the message about human trafficking and what can be done about it.
"Trapped by a horrifying past, Marty struggles with day to day life. As a pastor in his community he realizes his impact on those around him but does little more than go through the motions of his position. Life has little meaning to him. He simply clings to things that seem to give him some memories of what might have been."
