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.

Film Released

Today, we release a fully completed feature film that was barely even a notion six months ago.

15 January 2011, I launched a Kickstarter fundraiser...promising that I would "shoot over several days....allow for experimentation on set....break new ground visually….improve location sound recording....total running time for the film....between 65 and 80 minutes."

TAKEN IN is most certainly that, but it has also become a guiding star for my work and career. Moving forward now, I plan to continue making two features per year...on the same, six month schedule.

My next film, GET BETTER, launches a Kickstarter fundraiser today. And, assuming it is funded, there will be a process website like this one, 1 September 2011.

Thank you for your support in this process. I invite you along for the next one, as well.

This is such a great way to make a movie...with you, for you.
