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.


  1. Hi Doug

    I think it's smart that you have started building an audience for your film as you commence shooting. Others should do the same.

    Best of luck,

  2. Thanks Tom.

    It's a good idea to get started early. Hopefully, it will draw a crowd and get people intrigued. I'm filming this weekend from Thursday through Sunday. Should be a good time. I'll keep you posted with updates. Thanks for stopping by the site!
