Editorial for Astoria Entertainment (July-August 2011)
In the summer of 2011, I was asked to join the production company Astoria Entertainment, co-owned and run by the actors Steven Grayhm, Matt Dallas, and Charlie Bewley. I followed the three of them as they toured across the country for the research documentary “Into The Heart Of America”. The subject of the project is to see how veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are transitioning back into civilian life. A film based on the research is titled “Thunder Road” and is currently in the works.
Let’s hear it for Matt & his Astoria Entertainment colleagues, Steven Grayhm, Charlie Bewley (& Production Assistant/Researcher, Jupiter Baudot)! The script for upcoming feature film Thunder Road (penned by Steven) has just been registered with the Writers Guild of America. The research roadtrip and journey towards the finished film will be documented on film as Into the Heart of America: A Soldier’s Story.
