Across is a story that had been buzzing around in Writer/Director/Producer Christopher Foley's head for about three years. When the script was done, Chris turned to his old friend, Producer Matthew Cameron, to get the cameras rolling. Matt and Chris met at Christendom College and traveled the world together in the 1990s. But the last time they made a movie together was almost 20 years ago.
Heading up the team behind Chris and Matt were Director of Photography Logen Christopher and Assistant Director Corey Rich - Matt's partners at Stormlight.
Together Chris, Matt, Logen, and Corey put together an incredible group of film artisans. We will be putting more details here soon about the entire team. Check back soon!
