Ever wonder what it's like to work on an independent film? Join us behind the scenes of the feature film Calvin Marshall- filmed, produced and edited in the Rogue Valley. Current Southern Oregon residents, the director/producer team Gary and Anne Lundgren of Broken Sky Films, will present an advance screening of footage from their soon-to-be-released feature film; a panel discussion and Q&A with local cast and crew will follow.
Written and directed by Gary Lundgren, the film tells the story of Calvin Marshall (Alex Frost), a sophomore at Bayford City College, where he wants to make the baseball team. The problem? He is long on determination but short on skills. Frost, a Portland native now based in L.A., appeared in Gus Van Sant's Elephant. Steve Zahn (Rescue Dawn) plays his hard-nosed coach. Calvin Marshall also features Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Terri McMahon and Catherine Coulson and other local actors. The Lundgrens award-winning short film Wow and Flutter, which was featured at the 2004 AIFF, was also shot in the Rogue Valley. Their feature Lithium, about a young woman's struggle with manic depression, aired on Showtime.
