Local Filmmakers Cast for Next Feature Film Production - The Spring

Pumped and ready to begin pre-production work on their next big project, Motion Dog Films will be hosting a CASTING CALL at MARY JANE BURGERS & BREW in Perryville, Missouri on Sunday, November 28th, 2021 from 2PM - 4PM.

The Spring is a visually stunning thriller set in modern times and 1870 America. A gritty young woman struggles to clear herself of murder charges the only way she can - with the help of a ghost.

Two kindred souls, one, an ex-slave working in an 1870 post-war brothel, and the other a young woman from the wrong side of the tracks in modern-day Missouri, unite through supernatural circumstances to uncover a 150-year-old reign of serial murders.
