We utilized local businesses for products and services needed during the production of the film. It was great filming right here at home. We have an abundance of phenomenal locations to shoot any scene you need. We have filmed comedy, as well as horror-movie scenes right here in our own city”. “With so few productions in Sacramento, and no one doing the level of projects we do as independent film company, we fill its our obligation as well as a privilege to premier our film in Sacramento, as well as give the proceeds to The Oak Park Pre-School, Playmates Child Development Center” states Executive Producer Roxanne Avent. “We are grateful for the additional resources and especially thankful that someone who grew up here is willing to give back.
