Festival opens doors to filmmakers

Posted: September 8, 2017 at 1 a.m.

Courtesy Photo Director Billy Chase Goforth directs the “ghost kids” during last winter’s shoot of “Door in the Woods.” The feature film was shot almost entirely in Fayetteville and Sonora and will debut at the Fayetteville Film Fest next week.

"We shot overnight for two weeks in December in a mud pit in Sonora during the coldest temperatures of the year," remembers Billy Chase Goforth. "The location was a dry pond, but we had rain just before the shoot, so it turned to slick mud. We had a cast and crew of 50 out there trying to stay warm in 10-15 degree weather. In the dark. Cameras were freezing up. We were running gas heaters just off camera to keep the actors a little more comfortable."
