The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce’s next Progress Through People Luncheon will focus on two short movies that were shot in Liberty County.
It will be at noon Oct. 13 at Connection Church on Patriots Trail in Flemington. The Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau will sponsor the event.
The films are "A Promise" and "My Brother’s Keeper," which were filmed in Liberty County and produced by Wonder Worthy Productions. Samone Joyner Norsworthy, CEO of Wonder Worthy Productions directed both. They include local talent, such as Liberty County Commission Chairman Donald Lovette and child actors Austin Martin and Luke Osteen. Scenes were shot at locations in Liberty County, including Seabrook Village, the Old Liberty County Jail, Dunham Farms and the Bacon-Fraser house.
Both films were accepted in various film festivals including the Christian Film Festival and Cannes. "My Brother’s Keeper" debuted in Savannah during the Big River Film Fest in July and has won two Bronze Telly Awards.
"We’re very pleased to be able to show these films, which were created in Liberty County in a local setting," said LCCVB CEO Leah Poole. "We’ve seen the interest in filming here continue to grow during the last few years, and our office is working to facilitate the growing needs of producers, cast and crew members, while remaining considerate of our residents."
The luncheon costs $15 for chamber members and $20 for others. RSVP by Oct. 11 by calling 912-368-4445 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
