‘The Weight’ Blaine, MN

Well for those of you that don’t know I am in Minnesota working on a movie called The Weight. The way this all came about was through a DFW film maker’s networking event. Whilst attending some 6-7 months ago I met a fellow director by the name of Chason Laing. He was also a writer and was looking for investors to move forward with his scripts. Well we spoke once in the months between and I had every intention of calling and working with him; I got sidetracked though and misplaced his contact information. Well the day I found it and gave him a call he was excited to hear from me and told me about a script he had that he planned on shooting in about 2 weeks in Minnesota of all places! This coming just a few short days after the Cowboys crushing defeat by the Vikings. Well we setup a couple meetings and I decided I was in! So after reading the script I was brought on as Assistant Director & Unit Director.

So now here we are after a 16 hour road trip in snowy yet beautiful Minnesota. The next two days are set aside for location approval and pre-production then the shooting starts on Monday and it’s nonstop till I fly out in the 13th.

Here is a link to the movie site, we plan on updating frequently so check back often for news.
