STATE OF THE UNION story in Canton Repository

Michael Garwood shot his film STATE OF THE UNION this past Saturday and got a full page of coverage in the Canton Repository Sunday morning. 

Shane Hoover writes: 
"ZOAR - Pipe smoke mingled with the sulfurous bite of burnt gunpowder.
Union soldiers, arranged in a dark blue line, readied for the rebel charge. Bearded veterans and smooth-faced lads, they raised their rifles.
Crack, ca-ca-crack, crack!
The woods disappeared behind a veil of smoke. The volley echoed across the quiet village of Zoar.
“Cut! That was good,” yelled director Michael Garwood from behind his video camera. On to the next shot."

Counting Down the Days

The Open Frame Film Fest is coming soon -- April 14th, 8 pm at Canton's Palace Theatre.  And while we hope our audience is counting down the days til the big event...we know that our filmmakers are counting the days.

Some have finished shooting, many are still in the phase of pre-production, almost all are starting to think about all of the editing, sound-balancing, music-mixing and effects generation that they need to do in the editing lab.

Come see how their drama ends -- at the Palace on April 14th...
