Thank you, Selah!

Brian Palumbo, owner of Selah.
Filming for "Beautiful Silence" day three took place on Friday, March 18 at Selah in downtown Struthers, Ohio. It took nearly four hours to complete about a 15-second scene, just part of a small montage that will serve as an important part of the film. We were extremely happy with the location, and the footage that came out as well.

Most importantly, we would like to give a special thanks to Owner Brian Palumbo at Selah for giving us the opportunity to film at his restaurant, using his time and space. We couldn't have asked for a better place to shoot.

All three photos taken by Doug Helmick. Photos from the set of the Selah shoot will be up soon; keep in touch!

Lights, Camera, Action!

Beautiful Silence is officially in production as of yesterday, when the only scene captured in Pittsburgh, Pa., was shot with supporting actor Joey Manuselis, playing Officer Richard Ramirez. The bulk of the shooting will continue to take place this coming weekend in Struthers, Ohio and Columbiana, Ohio with main actress Callie Reda and actor Michael Maynard, along with other minor character roles. Updates and photos will be posted during the filming.

This is also the first official post for the "Beautiful Silence" Film blog page. Thanks to everyone who is following, helping out, or just keeping in touch! It's always a tough task to promote and get the talk of the film out on the streets. I hope you enjoy the updates and in the meantime, get ready for the premiere of the film. To receive quicker mini updates, follow @ChiaroFilms on Twitter or add our group Beautiful Silence on Facebook. Pretty soon, I'm going to get things ready for people who want to help us promote. Let us know if you're interested.

FYI: "Beautiful Silence" is Doug Helmick's latest creation and will also take place as a project for his intermediate editing class in college. Check out more of his work on Vimeo.

Again, thanks for your support. There's lots more to come, so stay connected.
