A local film group will be screening its first feature film on Aug. 11 at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center at 7 p.m. The film is titled “Shattered Reflections” and follows the life of the teenage car crash victim, Derrick Cain.
“Leaving the crash with a severe head injury, Derrick is haunted by numerous and grotesque hallucinations. Upon returning to school, Derrick meets the quirky Samantha, who seems to be stalked by her own demons. The film is rated PG-13,” explained Daniel Dorn, who created the concept for the film.
Dorn’s group Flatline Productions of Yadkin County (FPYC) “is a Christian-oriented film group dedicated to inspiring all generations to become actors, actresses, camera operators, make-up providers, costume designers, and other film workers,” he said.
The group is comprised of around 30 people and meets weekly at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center on Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m.
“We offer volunteer credit hours to high-schoolers. We hope to evolve into a business and gain a local building as our studio,” Dorn said.
Dorn said the film was originally titled “Images of Reality” and was a joint effort between himself and sisters, Jordan and Julia Dover.
Local churches and schools were used for the filming. Dorn said one scene was filmed at the Third Branch Café inside the Yadkin Arts Council. Local students from Forbush High School and the Yadkin Early College also perform in the production.
Admission for the film screening is by donation. Flatline Productions is requesting monetary donations to benefit future films or food donations to benefit Yadkin Christian Ministries. The film also will be available for purchase for $20. Those wishing to purchase the film should bring their own flash drive.
“Our group will also have a booth at the Harvest Festival doing a silent auction. If you have any gently used goods, crafts, or jewelry, please donate for our cause if you like,” Dorn added.
