Well, it’s seeming pretty official…local Director Ben Hickernell will be helming this summer’s Philly-based indie film “Backwards”, which is set to commence principal photography sometime in mid-July.  Written & Produced by Sarah Megan Thomas, and Line Produced by Brian David Cange, “Backwards” is a dramedy focused on an Olympic-hopeful rower who’s faced with  a few 30-something life decisions that leave her at an emotional crossroads.  Thomas will also play the lead role of Abi Brooks, in addition to producing.

As it stands, I’ll be joining Mr. Hickernell as well this summer in the role of UPM for the film.  I’m looking forward to yet another chance to team with Ben, as we’ve developed a long-standing relationship of successful collaborations over the years.  It’s good to see another indie select Philly as their backdrop of choice, as the CoBL will be featured pretty heavily in the film.
