For a filmmaker there's nothing greater than seeing your work finally up on the big screen, and in a little over a month from now, Richard McClure and his crew will have that honor as they celebrate their one-year anniversary of making a film called The Ancient with its nationwide release.
The making of the film is one of those inspiring stories as it was made over the course of one weekend in Gainesville, Texas. Five crews from around the country got together, broke down the shot list, and set about their separate ways to get the coverage they needed for McClure. Aside from a few pick-up shots that were lensed in February, The Ancient was totally completed within the set time frame.
The Ancient - which concerns a sheriff and an archeologist who are forced to take on an old dark force - will premiere September 10th at the Studio Movie Grill (4721 W. Park Blvd #100, Plano, TX). Admission is free and the screening begins at 8pm. Cast and crew members who participated in the film from the New York and Los Angeles area will also be showing the film in their respective cities.
