BS Filmworks Begins Production On Winter Film

This month, BS Filmworks begins pre-production on our latest short film – this one helmed by Scott Takeda. Production will begin in December with shoots around the rural areas of Brighton, Colorado.

“Once again we're taking a universal story and putting our own personal spin on it” said producer Lori Kay Allred. “Our latest film is about what it's like to join a family and feel like an outsider. However I'm excited by the personal touches that Scott is putting into the screenplay because he's including his own family into the film.”

“So imagine shooting a film during an actual family reunion,” laughed producer Brock Sherman. “That is essentially what we're doing.”
