“STAND LIKE A MOUNTAIN”
(Our hearts are like the land)
This movie is about one man’s struggle against an evil that touches us all, his search for God and meaning, it’s about unbounded love, redemption and hope for the children.
It also intends to focus on the spirit and talent of the people of Appalachia and the
beauty of the land
Beau Haddock, a very talented musician and songwriter will compose the score. He
will also engineer the soundtrack, write and perform some of the original songs. We will be contacting some well known singers from the area to perform some of the songs. As well.
God willing we will begin production by the 1st of Nov.. (Trying to start before
the foliage is gone.) We have several investors, but still short of a goal that would
prevent us from taking shortcuts. It’s a highly speculative venture so everything will be transparent. A bank account will be opened at a Harlan bank and a designated person
or persons will write checks for expenses as the production moves along.
Investors will get their investment back out of the first net profit. It will be a one time
payment. Thereafter they will receive a one time payment of fifty % of their investment
out of later, accrued net profits. For example the return for $2,000 would be $3,000
total.. Another option would be to buy shares at a fixed percentage rate.
The first hurdle is to make a really, really, great film. The next hurdle is to get distribution. Being outside the “Hollywood” system makes it far more difficult
to get distribution, but if we have a good product there are ways, film festivals,
cable TV, foreign markets, DVD sales and rentals.

Scenes for movie trailer shot in Harlan
ANN ROBINSON/Harlan Daily Enterprise Harlan County received a taste of Hollywood look this weekend as several out-of-towners worked around the area filming scenes for a trailer that will be used to raise money for the actual production of a movie that will eventually be filmed in Harlan. Kameron Mogadam, of Mogadam Films, worked with Harlan County youths Carson Murray and Braxton Flannery on Saturday filming a segment from the movie “Stand Like a Mountain” that will be used in the trailer.

Parts of Harlan County took on a Hollywood look this weekend as out-of-towners used the area and local actors to shoot a trailer for a movie that many are hoping will soon become a reality.
Terry Muncy, writer of the movie script “Stand Like a Mountain,” and his associates spent the biggest part of last week scouting for locations and area talent to appear on the trailer that will be used to help raise the necessary funding for the making of the movie.
Friday afternoon got under way with numerous Harlan Countians auditioning for parts in the trailer, while early Saturday morning saw everyone up and ready to begin film production.
Muncy said that the turnout for the auditions had been tremendous and that he was “very impressed” with the county’s talent and that it had been difficult to decide who was right for each part due to each individual’s unique talent. However, by the end of the day the cast was in place and Muncy said he was pleased with the choices.
“Of course, we don’t know how many of the people will be used for the actual parts of the movie that they played in the trailer, but we are definitely going to use several of the people that worked with us on this first stage of the project,” said Muncy. “There could be some very well-known Hollywood actors who eventually end up in some of the parts, but there will be parts for these talented people who helped with this project as well.”
Muncy said that with each scene of the trailer, he began to see his vision of what the movie was intended to be and that it all seemed to be coming together by the final wrap-up of the trailer scenes.
Although Muncy said he did not want to give a spoiler for the movie, he was very motivated by the opening scene, where the main character named Harlan awakes from a dream of a real-life situation which occurred during his childhood.
“I believe the two young fellows that we chose for this part were great for the roles, and they both fit right into the scene,” said Muncy. “These boys were not hard to work with at all — almost naturals to the acting.”
Carson Murray was chosen to play the role of the young Harlan, while Braxton Flannery portrayed his childhood friend, Clyde, whose character is intended to be somewhat of a rebel, even in his childhood.
The scene with the two boys is expected to open the movie, with the boys walking down a creek bank. The scene was filmed in Mary Helen, having the boys in a real-life setting as they played out their roles.
“The look of the creek, along with the acting parts of the two young fellows, was a wonderful combination,” said Muncy. “It was great to see this scene come to life.”
After the weekend of filming, Muncy and his associates plan to piece the scenes together for final editing by former California cameraman Kameron Mogadam, of Mogadam Films.
The trailer will then be used for showing to potential investors who may be interested in helping with the funding of the actual movie.
Muncy said he is confident that once the trailer is put together, there will be many people interested in investing in the movie production.
“Anyone who invests in this movie is really only going to be making money, because once the movie is finished and on the market I truly believe it will become a huge hit in all parts of the country,” said Muncy.
Muncy said the making of the actual movie has been a dream of his for many years, not only because he believes in the movie but because he believes in the beauty of small-town life in Harlan County.
“I have always thought that Harlan would be a wonderful setting for just the right movie, and now that I have written the actual script and have gotten so much positive feedback on it, I am very enthused to see this dream come to pass,” said Muncy.
Kathy Jones, president of the Harlan County Chamber of Commerce, said she also was very enthused about the possibility of the movie and that the chamber would stand behind the production in any way it could.
“I would love to see this movie become a reality, and I know that the chamber will do all it can to help promote the film,” said Jones. “I don’t know at this point what the chamber could actually do to help with raising the funds, but I can say that we are behind the movie 100 percent. It would be great for Harlan County.”
Muncy said now the first step to raising the funding has started, he plans to be a regular visitor to Harlan in the next few months in order to further scout out areas and new talent for the movie.
