Blueberry Hall, LLC in association with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) is pleased to announce production of the upcoming feature film “Blueberry Hall” to be entirely filmed in Oklahoma beginning in May. Producers of the film include Sean Patrick “SP” Eaton and Ty Dickson of Okiewood Films and Def/Alt founder Jay B. Walker.
“Blueberry Hall” is a cautionary, Southern Gothic tale following Ian, an elite college debater who turns to the world of prescription drugs in hopes of reaching his goal – a free ride to Harvard Law School.
The feature film marks the directorial debut of Oklahoma’s Keshav Tyagi (ion Oklahoma’s “30 Under 30” Class of 2014), who will direct from his original screenplay. Tyagi is excited to showcase the talent of Oklahoma’s filmmaking community. “It’s an honor to have fellow Oklahoma filmmakers be as passionate about this project as I am,” said Tyagi.
Producer Jay B. Walker adds, “This film will be a visual mixtape of how extreme the ‘quest to be the best’ can become. We hope it serves both as a warning and an inspiration.”
The film will feature an all-Oklahoma crew including Cinematographer Samuel Calvin who describes the visual approach of the film “as a digital rendering of the dark spaces we often find ourselves within modern culture.”
“As more local filmmakers utilize the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program, our state’s film infrastructure will continue to grow,” said OF+MO Director Tava Sofsky. “We are excited to welcome Mr. Tyagi’s directorial debut and pleased that this production will employ so much of our state’s talented, hard-working crew members and film-friendly businesses.”
“Blueberry Hall” will utilize the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program administered by the Oklahoma Film + Music Office. Principal photography on the film will commence May 11, 2015 in Oklahoma City and the surrounding communities.
