JCFilms Studios - Mansfield, OH Partners with Richland Academy to Create Classes and New Film!
For the last 30 years, Richland Academy has been giving individuals of all ages the opportunity to explore the arts through visual art, music, theatre, martial arts, or dance. Now, they’re teaming up with JCFilms to make a feature film in celebration of their many accomplishments.
Jason Campbell, President of JCFilms explains, “I love their passion for the arts and their school motto, ‘creativity exists in everyone.’ It’s because we share those same values, this is going to be an amazing film, and we are humbled to begin this film project.”
This multi-plot film is simply being titled ‘RICHLAND’ and is packed with friendship, romance, music and oh-so-much dancing! RICHLAND is slated for production in Mansfield, OH in early March of 2022.
“It’s the perfect balance between the edge-of-your-seat action, like rooting for the good guy in the inevitable dance-off, to following the dreams of a former student who returns home and finds lots of fulfillment teaching dance to little ones,” Campbell said.
“Many of the stories in the film are based on true events from the school,” says Marianne Cooper, Executive Director and Founder of the Richland Academy of the Arts.
Because this celebration of arts movie has a little of everything, the producers will be reaching out to local talent to get involved. In addition, JCFilms will be offering acting classes at Richland Academy in preparation for the film.
To date, JCFilms has produced over 50 faith and family films with actors Erik Estrada, Dean Cain and Kevin Sorbo. They also operate several acting studios across the country and are looking forward to this partnership with Richland Academy.
