After raising more than $33,000 on Kickstarter three years ago, Oklahoma writer-director Nick Sanford's passion project has taken six years to finally reach audiences, according to a news release.
As previously reported, "The Harvesters" was written after the May 20, 2013, tornado that hit Moore. It was shot in April 2016, taking three years to complete editing and secure online distribution.
“Seeing a monster storm destroy part of your hometown like that affects you,” Sanford said in a statement. “So I began writing the film as a way to work through my own anxiety about what I’d experienced. B horror films can be very effective at exploring real life terrors.”
The film stars Alissa Ford, Adam Hampton, Laurie Cummings, Lucas Ross, Jason Gwynn, Arden Moad, Page Tudyk, and Sidney Flack. It was shot primarily in Newcastle, Tuttle, Purcell and Sanford’s hometown of Moore.
The film is set on Halloween in fictional Baileyville, Oklahoma, as a journalist who prides herself on objective reporting discovers that she is trapped in the middle of a series of horrifying murders and disappearances. When the terror intensifies and a countdown begins, the people closest to Jane are put in danger and her journalistic stance on “not becoming the story” is put to the ultimate test.
Sanford is now working on a new film with producer Chris Butcher. The plot is being kept under wraps, according to a release.
