Thanks to the new Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit, there has been an influx of filmmakers looking to bring their movies to Buckeye State. One local production company, 35mm Pictures LLC, is looking to make some waves along the Lake Erie shore. 35mm Pictures consists of Alfred Griffin, Dale Hlaves, Chris Beck, and Jay Wallace, who all rotate their various skill sets to best suit the project in front of them. Their latest endeavor is Maintenance Man.
Maintenance Man is a feature length Horror film lensing entirely in Northeast Ohio, with large portions filmed at Avon Lake High School. The plot centers around a female High School student and her group of friends who must survive the lethal advances of a killer custodian. The film has no budget, with everything from the actors’ time, wardrobe, and locations being donated.
The hopes rest on Maintenance Man serving as a calling card to potential investors in the Cleveland film scene. The movie has roughly 4 weeks of shooting with another 6 weeks in post-production. Plans are for several screenings in the Cleveland area and local film festivals upon its completion.
