Welcoming Departure - The Next Scott Ballard Films Production

Set to begin principal photography in October 2010, Welcoming Departure, is an 80-minute film following the life of Charlie, a night janitor at a public library. Charlie's routine, his life and his hopes are drastically changed following a strange and mysterious inheritance which leads him on a discovery of his own past. The film will re-unite the production team behind Between Night, as well as some of the actors, including the lead, Tom Campbell. With a modest budget of $25,000, Welcoming Departure will be shot on Super 16mm in Bellingham, WA and Portland, OR.
This blog will be dedicated to this new feature-length project. I will include updates about the pre-production, locations and calls for crew and talent. I am also adding Paypal buttons for contributions for the project. As the project goes into production phase, I will use this blog to feature live updates from location, as well as clips and behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot. As the film is cut, I will post trailers, teasers, festival updates and distribution.
Stay tuned!
