Cottonwood - How great films get made (Photos)
Please allow me the great privilege of introducing you to what could well prove to be one of the greatest films of the decade. It is currently in preproduction with a probable release date of mid to late 2014. It has a proven production team and a truly stellar cast all wrapped around a dramatic moving story right out of the trying days of America’s Great Depression and all solidly in the heart of Texas.
“Cottonwood” is a compelling story set in dust bowl draught ravaged West Texas. It is poignant and heartfelt wrapped in mystery, steeped in intrigue and filled with tension. The characters are unforgettable and powerful, even the mule. It is all that a great movie must be, it is relationship based with a steady challenge to deep friendships painted with death and healing and a racial tension that electrifies the audience.
Heading the production team is Julie Campbell. Julie comes to Cottonwood with more than a quarter century of proven ability and with a wide variety of film and television projects to her credit. In 1998 she formed Mark Campbell Productions a much respected independent production company named in honor of her late brother. Now she has brought her background, skills and expertise to “Cottonwood.” To help assure success Julie has assembled a genuinely stellar cast.
