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.

Boy & Bean

I found Portland-based Boy & Bean through Kickstarter. And promptly invested in their first CD project.

They are a hot-swing trio that specializes in early 20th century dance-hall jazz...reminicent of perrinial favorites, The Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Luke and Amber Short (guitar and vocals)...and sometimes pal Andrew Jones on upright bass...make up the band.

Their music is well-suited for the Reptile Lagoon scene in the film. Wonder if they'd be willing to share?
