THUNDER BAY – Rodney Dwira says, “Filmmakers and industry professionals are descending on Thunder Bay this summer for the shooting of feature film ‘10?57’. The city will see road closures, car chases and SWAT teams storming the city amongst a fully equipped film crew and professional actors from all over Canada”.
Rodney Dwira who had added Bay City and Neila to his film portfolio is bringing his next project to the streets of Thunder Bay. “It’s a film with the weight of a budget behind it. In collaboration with industry professional from Vancouver and Toronto”, shared Dwira.
Dwira has assembled a crew with over 10 years experience in the movie industry. Director of Photography for 10?57, Dale Shippam (Watchman, A?Team) states, “With our team in place we can make, not just a good movie, but a great one.”
Filming will take place in locations all over the city, starting next Wednesday 23rd June, showcasing Thunder Bay with its impressive landscape and urban environments.
According to Dwira, “Without the support of Thunder Bay, The Mayor, local businesses and local citizens we would never have the opportunity to work on this truly incredible project”.
The film is a riveting Police Action Drama, entirely shot in Thunder Bay, featuring local professional crew and actors as part of the extensive filmmaking team.
Here is a brief outline of the movie that Dwira is willing to share:
Missing Person Unit Detective Jane Scott is considered a hero, even though the humbled woman is simply doing her job when she investigates kidnapped cases and recovers hostages held for ransom. However the rules of the game change when she is tasked with a missing person’s case and the suspected abductor is her former partner and one time lover…… Ray Unic. This time, they are chasing one of their own.
Over the summer, Dwira promises to keep everyone up-to-date on where the movie is being shot!
