The making of a feature-length film in Eastern Oregon is possible through:

The project of making the feature-length film Out of Character is an idea that started small and continues to grow and expand.

As more people gravitate to the project and have commit to sharing their skills, we realize the potential and responsibility to share with the world. The overriding principle in our planning and creation of this project is to showcase and utilize the talent and grandeur of the region. It is our aim to celebrate and support these unique and impressive local artists by providing an opportunity not typical to the area through the vehicle of film.

“You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks.”
