WHO ARE THE FILMMAKERS?
IN THE GROVE was created by a group of close friends who have been working together for most of their lives. For four days, a group of 15 people worked diligently to complete this film. Every morning the cast and crew rose before sunrise hoping for shots of dew settling on the grass, and every evening they worked well into the night to capture the eerie landscape of moonlit orange trees. This project was completed because the crew was willing to take risks, to make sacrifices, and to pour their hearts into bringing this story to life.
WHAT IS THE FILM ABOUT?
In the deep and winding trails of the Florida orange groves lives a young, mysterious woman. To her neighbors, she is a stranger, known only as the girl who lives with dogs. Under the shade of the citrus trees, Missy Reese spends every waking moment with her beloved canines. Her intense and unusual attachment to the dogs has left her an outcast of the human world, but when a local farmer named Avery Dean reaches out to her, Missy's life begins to change. Still, as much as Missy longs for human interaction, she cannot escape the wild animal inside her...
HOW WILL MY MONEY BE USED?
We were able to complete IN THE GROVE on a small budget -- Now we would like to share it with the world. We are raising money to aid with software licensing fees, purchasing sound effects, film festival entry fees, printing costs for press materials, DVD manufacturing, screener printing fees, and many more small costs that arise during the final stages of post-production.
