We finished filming the trailer for my narrative feature, TEXAS HEART, Oct. 28, down in Dallas and Wolfe City. It was a huge success, thanks mostly to a talented crew, inspired performances, and compelling locations. A big shout-out to co-director and cinematographer, Bob Tullier, for his terrific work. The remarkable footage we shot is now in editing. We expect a finished trailer by Thanksgiving. Stay tuned!
The trailer for my new feature film, TEXAS HEART, a dramedy set in north Texas, goes into production Oct. 25-28 in and around my hometown of Wolfe City, Texas. The film tells the story of a corrupt New York attorney fleeing the Mob who seeks refuge in a small Texas town where he stumbles upon a powerful reason to do good. We’re shooting the trailer first to use as a ‘selling tool’ for the project–we’ll show it to financiers, agents, managers, other film producers to raise additional funds so we can (hopefully) go into production on the feature film itself next summer. The script is co-authored by my good friend and former Wolfe City High classmate, Nick Field.
Starring in the trailer are two experienced Los Angeles-based actors: TIM BRENNEN has appeared in JUSTIFIED, CRIMINAL MINDS, THE JIMMY KIMMEL SHOW, among many others; CODY SHILOH BROWN played a supporting role in the Oscar-nominated film, WINTER’S BONE.
Stay tuned to this page as well as the film’s soon-to-be launched website (www.texasheartfilm.net) and FB page for updates, trailers, and behind the scenes photos!
