Filmmaker Campaigns to Get Wayland-Shot Film in Theaters
Justin Lerner may live on the other side of the country, but that doesnâ€™t mean Wayland isnâ€™t close to his heart.
So close, in fact, that the Wayland High School graduate has brought a sliver of Hollywood to Wayland by filming two of his movies in the businesses, fields, woods and spaces that make Wayland a unique movie set.
â€œThe subject matter of my stories recently is more suited to pastoral settings,â€ Lerner said via phone interview from his home in Los Angeles.
â€œAnd if youâ€™re looking to do an indie feature, you get more support from a small town where people want to have you. Itâ€™s just very rare to have a small town serve almost as a back lot for your feature, and when you donâ€™t have a lot of money, the flexibility is nice.â€
