What came out of the experience was a very high-quality production the entire family can enjoy.
“It’s clean enough for the entire family, but not hokey,” Koenig said.
“For their first full-length movie, these guys did a great job,” Newton said. “The cinematography, everything, fabulous.”
But even though Newton has been in many productions while currently living in Nashville, he said acting in a feature film is different and at the first screening in Louisville earlier this summer, he was looking on things that could have been better. Newton’s family loved seeing him on the big screen.
“My dad passed away in 2009 and that was the kicker for me because he would have loved it because he thought it would have been the neatest thing that I was the bad guy in a Western,” Newton said.
In all, there have been 12 to 13 screenings and the producers are in negotiations to release it digitally. There might be another film in the future at Four80 Vault Films, and Newton said he would be ready to be in it when called upon.
“We wanted to earn a right to make another,” Koenig said.
