TAKEN IN is a handmade feature film about a man who must spend a weekend alone with his estranged teenage daughter at a roadside resort. It is here that Simon and Brooklyn must confront the issues that have driven them apart, and ultimately choose how they will move forward...together or alone.

TAKEN IN was written and directed by personal filmmaker, Chris White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. The story (co-written with his wife Emily), was inspired by Chris’ theatre work with students at a therapeutic boarding school. The film is dedicated to his own teenage daughter, Gibson.

TAKEN IN was filmed at South of the Border, Dillon SC USA in the Spring of 2011.

27 March 2011


This morning we shot at South of the Border's newest attractions: Reptile Lagoon.

Once again, Madelaine Hoptry shined as "Brooklyn." It was only her fourth full day of film acting, but she "brings the goods," as they say. Besides being a talented actress and hard worker, Maddi is very smart...easy going...and can perform minor dentistry.

Ronnie Gunter shined this morning, too. He's already headed back to the West Coast, but we hope to see him again soon. (The rumor I heard was that he's planning to shoot a feature in the Upstate of South Carolina...)

And fresh from last night's performance at the Cafe and Then Some, Traysie Amick joined our company this morning as "Dawn." We are so glad to have her here.
