I’ve been eluding to my next feature film project in recent posts and now it’s time to share what the heck it’s about!
Our film is a love story that explores the beauty and enigma of two people being drawn together as they help one another overcome personal fears. The main setting is a thriving Indiana grain farm where its lone occupant, a gruff widow named Eugenia, is bedridden due to a stroke. Her estranged children leave her in the hands of Bernadette, a live-in caregiver who is as gifted at baking, as she is caring for the sickly woman. Bernadette soon discovers another presence on the farm, Shane, Eugenia’s loyal, yet withdrawn farm hand. As Bernadette and Shane work alongside one another on the farm, they discover that love is a phenomenon beyond their control, one that chooses them as much as they choose one another.
So there you go! As I mentioned before, I recently completed the first draft of the script and am now rewriting. I’m excited to share the process of making this film with you, everything from writing, to directing, to editing. I’ll be posting a lot more frequently with questions, thoughts, and concerns you hopefully with comment on.
Here are a couple of photos visually exemplifying why I wanted to make my next film in Indiana…
