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.

Assembling the Collective

First Production Meeting \ 6 March 2011  \ Cool Springs Drive
Last September, I wrote this in an entry called "Squadron" on my personal blog:

"I know lots of really talented people. People far more talented than me. The key is who goes where...how the collective fits together."

This process is ongoing. Expansive film artists are always looking, meeting, evaluating other potential contributors. They design and grow their portfolio on the synergistic strength of the collective. 

Then, they must assemble the team...put the right people in the right places. At the right time.
