Local Film Maker Debuts First Movie
Have you ever sat and thought about what it takes to make a movie?
This morning, we heard first hand from a Macon State College graduate Daniel Kahn Nelson who wrote, produced, and directed a film, despite financial difficulties.
Nelson says he didn’t dream of being a filmmaker at a young age. He got involved with the industry in college and knew it was for him. In order to produce his film, "Big Smokey and the Shankers," Nelson had to overcome the financial struggles that come along with making a movie.
The screening of Daniels comedic action film, "Big Smokey and the Shankers," kicks off the fall premier movie series at the Douglass Theatre this weekend. You can view the film on Friday, October 9th at 8pm. Tickets are $5 dollars at the door.
