Maker of "Lake Effects", "Wish You Well" announces new project

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE, VA -

The creative minds behind the locally produced films "Lake Effects" and "Wish You Well" are taking their talents to the Chesapeake Bay for their newest project.

"Chesapeake" tells the story of an isolated waterman whose life is dramatically changed after he saves a young boy from drowning.

Life Out Loud Films founder and the "Chesapeake" producer Sara Elizabeth Timmins is teaming up with another Virginia-based producer named Erica Arvold for this project.  Arvold's credits include "House Hunting" and Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln".

Academy Award winner Keith Carradine has signed on to star in the movie which begins filming next year.

"Our approach to filmmaking is to create a collaborative environment and a fulfilling experience for everyone involved, especially the community," said Timmins.  "We have met some of the most enthusiastic and welcoming people on our visits to the Eastern Shore."

Timmins also has another project planned for 2015 called "Shoeless Wonders", which is based on the true story of a football team from Lynchburg.
