This month, BS Filmworks begins pre-production on our latest short film with a working title of "Remembering Us." This film is co-written by Scott Takeda and Lori Kay Allred. The two will also co-direct. Filming will begin in February with shoots around the Denver area.
“Once again we're taking a universal story and putting our own personal spin on it” said Allred. “Our latest film is autobiographical, about a man who suffers from a traumatic brain injury, and how that injury affected his professional and personal life.”
“This is an intensely personal film, with Lori and Scott exploring a very dark time of their lives” said producer Brock Sherman. "This film is also our most ambitious so far. We're going to be shooting this film over the entire year, to show the passage of time. Time is the only thing that heals a traumatic brain injury, so we will be incorporating that into our story."
