A film business owner out of Priceville has set his camera sights on shooting his movie in Falkville in the next few months.

New Vision Film owner Jeffrey Parker has wrote, shot and produced two films thus far and for his third, he plans to shoot it in five separate filming locations in Falkville. One of the specific filming addresses is the downtown shop area located next to the railroad tracks.

“We think it will take about 20 to film the movie and we plan to be in Falkville for about a week and a half of that time,” Parker said. “We’re planning to start shooting it in March. We’re currently casting characters right now.”

Parker said a fundraising site has been created for the horror/thrill movie based on a script he recently completed.

There are a lot of “go fund me” type of fundraising sites online, but this one is geared toward film-makers and it’s user friendly for that purpose,” Parker said. “We are starting that campaign soon for 30 days and then we will begin the filming process.”

The ideas behind this movie’s synopsis were to be original and different from what most people are seeing now Parker said.

“I wanted to make a movie that’s nothing like anyone else had scene,” Parker said. “It’s going to have the thriller sense to it, but also a supernatural horror type effect.”

The synopsis, as Parker described, stars the main character is woman from New York who is coming to a small town to find her missing brother. He was last scene in this remote location, so she begins to search for him in, what she quickly discovers, is a twilight zone type area.

“The people there are strange and bizarre and clearly withholding information about her brother who has been missing for sometime,” Parker said. “While there, she meets a Mississippi professor that has a background in law enforcement. They combine efforts and try and locate the missing brother. The professor had also found that many others were missing in the same area. The story goes on to discover that a curse had been put on the town and the situation was a lot deeper and more dangerous than they had originally anticipated.”

Casting auditions and information about being involved in the movie can be found at HollyWoodHuntsville.com or by contacting Ayoka Billions.
