Wij Jagen / We Hunt

a documentary in English

We hunt is a visual portrait centred on the topic of hunting that depicts the authentic story of hunters.

Bjorn is a Dutch hunter with a passion for nature. Through voice-overs, he describes the unwritten rules, experiences, friendships and rivalries that exist within the world of hunting. It's the recollection of the smallest moments that triggers hunters to go hunt again. These small moments are emphasised through the film's use of slow motion.

The Candy Shop

a narrative film in English

Jimmy Balcom’s new job selling newspapers is a God-send to a kid working hard to help his family survive during the depression. But then Jimmy figures out what’s happening in the candy shop across the street. And he is confronted with a choice that no twelve-year-old should ever have to face. Giving his family a better life, or keeping his soul.

Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) stars as the Candy Shop owner in this original film from Whitestone Motion Pictures in conjunction with Street Grace.

The Candy Shop is a film initiative to help fight against child sex trafficking.

This film is being made for the Doorpost Film Project, and with support from 12Stone® Church and Street Grace. The Candy Shop is a Fairytale/Parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.

Up to 500 underaged girls a month are trafficked for sex here in our city of Atlanta.
It’s the number one city in the country for child sex trafficking..
The 10th in the world.

This plague has gone on for too long, and now we at Whitestone, in cooperation with Doorpost, 12Stone® Church and StreetGrace want to put a stop to it.

This film represents the spearhead of a citywide and possibly a nationwide campaign.
It is not a documentary. It is not a PSA. It is the beginning of a movement.

DYLAN

a documentary in English

Based on a documentary theater piece, DYLAN truly rides the line of documentary and narrative genres. Performed with incredible honesty and dramatic skill, Becca Blackwell unforgettably portrays a young man exploring his identity as he finds himself immersed in a new community.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT:
I began the process of making this film nearly ten years ago when I wrote the script as part of a writer's workshop taught by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen (The Exonerated). The workshop was specifically focused on documentary theater writing, which was a format I knew very little about but immediately fell in love with.

We were tasked to interview someone whose story seemed interesting, and through a very detailed and specific method would eventually edit these interviews into a documentary theater piece. After thinking for a bit, I decided to approach my friend Dylan Winn Garner, a friend whom I had known since childhood. As a child I had known Dylan as Emily, but had little bits of exposure to his transition which had occurred in the not too recent past. I reached out to Dylan who was willing to participate and we did a phone interview.

The interview lasted for over two hours, and we discussed just about every detail of his life from early childhood on. His friendships, his relationships, and his exploration of self-identity. After the interview was over, I transcribed every last detail - every time he cleared his throat or stuttered. This was a key part of the writing process and ultimately what I believe made the final product feel so real. After editing the interview down throughout the workshop, I completed the writing piece but didn't know what to do with it. I put it aside, but never quite forgot about it.

Nearly ten years later I decided I was ready to make something out of it. I pulled out the story and began working it into a script. I gave it a setting that I felt would be appropriate - a trip to Coney Island at dawn. I had always imagined that Dylan would actually be removing layers of clothing throughout the piece to signify the removal of emotional baggage needed in order to go through the process of self-discovery. Swimming was the perfect ending because it represented the freedom that Dylan had finally achieved. I also spoke with Dylan who gave me permission to film the piece and told me that he loved the idea of going swimming at the end because he was always drawn to the water.

Casting Dylan was going to be a challenge and I didn't really know where to begin. My first instinct was to cast a man in the role but was not sure if that was really the correct choice. Through a friend of a friend I was introduced to Becca Blackwell, an incredible transgender performer out of NYC. When speaking to Becca, we discussed casting the role and they told me that if there was one thing a man could never understand, it was what it was like to want to be a man. That statement resonated with me. Becca is a superb actor who took this role and performance very seriously.

I hope in watching this film the viewer can feel how real and honest this story is, and I hope that the message of self-discovery and acceptance will be embraced by all different communities.

** Please note that we do not mean to offend anyone by the use of the word "tranny" in the film. It was kept in the film to honor the authenticity and honesty of the interview with the real Dylan, who used it in the context that applied to him 10 years ago. However, we do not in any way support or promote the use of that word in any context.
