  • Filmmaker returns to hometown to shoot his first feature film – “Zachary Will, a CHS graduate, is returning to Columbia to direct his first feature film, Grandma Werewolf. Zach spent the first 18 years of his life in his hometown, Columbia, before moving out to the big city of Atlanta to make it in the film industry. Since moving, he’s worked on TV series and built a wonderful production team. “I’ve always just loved the look of the small town,” Zach says of Columbia. The film will also film scenes in Kunkletown, Pa, which is near Allentown. The film is about a family that goes to their recently widowed grandmother’s cabin for Thanksgiving. There they find out that their grandmother is actually a werewolf. Without Grandpa around to stop her, the family must put aside their problems, learn magic, and steal a silver sword to subdue the Grandma Werewolf! We expect to film in June-July of 2017 and the film will be released on Thanksgiving 2017. We’re currently raising the remainder of the funds for the project on our Kickstarter. SOURCE: news release
