Local Filmmaker Shooting L'Dor V'Dor in Port Stanley

Award-winning filmmaker Michael Tobin, who has exhibited his work internationally and premiered his last film at Palm Springs Film Festival, is bringing his next project to his childhood beach in Port Stanley, near his hometown of London, Ontario.

Tobin and his team will be descending upon the beach town from October 9-12 to shoot his upcoming film with the beautiful shores of Lake Erie as the film's main backdrop.

The short film about a father and a son is called L'Dor V'Dor (Hebrew for 'From Generation to Generation'). The father fears his son is losing his religious identity. The son feels his father has lost touch with the modern world and wants him to adapt. As both plead their cases to one another, they experience a moment that changes their relationship forever.

To make this movie, we really need your help. We are a small but mighty team that is in fact looking for any extra funding or support the community is willing to give. If people would like to donate, they can do so via the Indie Go Go link here!

We're making a movie - a short film, in fact. The story is very special to us and we know it'll touch you deeply. It's about the parent-child relationship, truth and love, and the essence that connects us from one generation to the next.

While we love the community support, unfortunately we're not encouraging people to come watch the shoot as we need silence to film. We are not looking for any extras or additional actors.
