Award winning film director and Port Stanley resident Matthew Marshall is getting tuned in for his next film project as it started principle filming over the first weekend of May at a residence in Port Stanley. Marshall, is coming off the success of his award winning feature film “Daughter of the King”, which won twenty seven awards, three official nominations and fourteen official selections in film festivals around the world. Included six directing awards for Marshall himself. Now he is directing the new 12 Disciples short film Tuned In which is story is about Emma, a teenager who disobeys dinner table rules of her parents and gets grounded until she learns to get priorities straight. “The film is relevant and timely in society today as it explores issues of teens being connected to social media and their electronic devices but not connected to family and other personal relationships,” Marshall says when talking about the film. Marshall goes on to talk about the fact that if we are honest the majority of us, under the age of forty check our smart phones compulsively, especially the younger generation and especially teens. The more we use it the more often the urge is to look at it. "Cell phones are this powerful computer that gives us constant information; the new, the interesting and unpredictable. We feel rewarded with every Facebook post, text and new tweet”, Marshall comments when talking about one of the central issues of the film. “As with any drug over time, overuse can be destructive. It isolates us from the world around us”, adds Marshall who is also the writer of the film script.

The film is being made by 12 Disciples in association with m & s Marshall Productions and Productionmark. This is the 12 Disciples fourth short film. Previous productions included “J”, “Falling For You” and “Crucified”. However filmmaking is not new to this team as the co-founders of 12 Disciples, Florin Marksteiner and Matthew Marshall have over twenty five years of experience in the video/film industry.

The lead role of the short film of Emma is being played by London, Ontario native Marley Cabral. Emma’s movie mother is played by Corina Leatherdale who has worked with Marshall on two of his previous films, Addictions and Daughter of the King. The remaining members of the cast of the film includes; Jamie Rainbird, Talitha Wood and Brittany Sterling. The film will also feature a number of extras from the area who play students during a school scene. The crew is made up of people from Chatham and London. Filming began on May 7th and will continue May 14 and 15th.
