LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – An Arkansan now living in Atlanta is working on an independent film that's set in The Natural State's Ozarks region.
Allison Hogue, 31, of McGehee attended the University of Central Arkansas where she studied Digital Filmmaking.
Hogue, who also worked as a freelance photographer when she lived in Central Arkansas, has a passion for film.
“The first time I edited footage of an old TV show and saw how films actually come together, I was hooked. It seemed like magic at the time,” Hogue says.
She moved to Georgia in 2013 and is now teaching film at the University of North Georgia.
“Everyone always said I’d make a great teacher, but I never considered it until I assisted teaching a class in grad school. I saw that same spark in the students’ eyes that I’d had and wanted to be a part of that,” she continues.
The indie film she’s producing is titled, “Dead Winter.” The film will be shot in north Georgia and is set in a post-apocalyptic South where a young woman is struggling to keep her family alive. Click here for the film's website.
Hogue chose the Arkansas Ozarks has the setting for the film because she had vacationed there often.
“I’ve had the story in my head for a few years but never had any real reason to produce the film until I started teaching and met my students. I want to give them an opportunity to work with film industry professionals and get their foot in the door to a film career,” Hogue explains.
Hogue says the project could use a financial boost and welcomes donations. You can make contributions on the project’s IndieGoGo campaign at this link: https://igg.me/at/deadwinter/x/17345772
