When filmmaker Andrew Hardaway was passing through Danville this spring after a stint filming in Japan, he was glad to be stateside again.
"I worked on it for five months, from start to finish," said Hardaway, who lives in Los Angeles. "I'm on my way home now, through Kentucky. I have not been home since Dec. 10."
His film, titled "it," is a fiction story "about a young computer scientist that is pursuing a very strange and weird phenomenon. "it" was filmed in Czechoslovakia and New York. Hardaway wrote the script, but said the "type of project" is more interesting than the film itself.
"In Japan, there's a new form of advertising on the Internet sponsored by NEC (a leading solutions provider for broadband networking and mobile Internet)," he explained. "They are trying to change their global image in the Far East, Europe and North America. They reached out to a handful of different directors from around world."
