Lorain County Movie

Film director Joseph Carrion Jr. returns to his hometown Lorain, Ohio to film a movie in Lorain County and surrounding towns through out Ohio, Including HOLLYWOOD California "Sunset Las Palmas Studios", Founded in 1919, The lot is one of the oldest production facilities in Hollywood and has played host to many notable productions, including I Love Lucy. The movie will have a PG rating, the movie is...intended for all ages. The movie soundtrack will be positive with no negative influences as most movies and music are these days.I lost several childhood friends the past years due to Fentanyl/Opioid Epidemic . I’m going to focus on that situation and also bullying resulting in suicide "suicide prevention efforts". I will inform the younger generation of how to avoid its ramifications. I have contacted mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, and clinical social workers who will provide solutions in the movie. They will also provide guidance on how to overcome the condition for anyone who suffers from it.

The causes of mental disorders are often unclear. Common mental disorders include depression which affects approximately 400 million people. Schizophrenia also affects approximately 21 million people globally. Suicides resulted in 828,000 global deaths in 2015.

This movie will showcase the hidden beauty of Lorain and surrounding Towns. In addition, this film will most certainly improve Lorain Counties image and inspire the residents to take part in something positive and new that’s occurring in a large scale.

Celebrities will participate in this exciting motion picture. These celebrities are connected with some of the best actors and directors in the entertainment industry. These talented and influential celebrities are key to opening the doors of Lorain County and surrounding towns to the film industry. The film industry has brought over 100 projects to Northeast Ohio since 2008 and has brought more than a half million dollars to the local economy and created over 3,000 jobs. Producers of two movies spent over $80 million on products and services while filming in and around the city of Cleveland.

There was a time when there was no bad language, sexual content, or other bad influences on TV. Shows of this nature were Mr. ED, Donna Reed, My Three Sons, The Andy Griffith Show, etc. These were ideal examples of wholesome TV shows. Television and movies became corrupted over time.

This movie is the biggest project I’ve ever attempted. My last documentary movie was a powerful story about our fallen troops titled "Ohio Raises Heroes." That movie was heartbreaking. The movie debuted at The Palace Theatre in Lorain along with a few movie theaters in Ohio. This new movie is being made to bring unity to my hometown and surrounding areas, put a dent in the area’s violence, and be a part of rebuilding my beloved hometown Lorain Ohio.

I am partnering with TV and movie stars along with Grammy recording artists who are working with me on this project. So many people, especially our youth, look up to celebrities. I'm recruiting individuals with talent who will motivate everyone to not forget what they wanted to be or what they want to be. So many have lost their dreams. They have even forgotten about their passions. Seventy percent of the movie will be based on true life stories of these talented people.

The primary part of the movie is based on motivation. People search for movies or music to push them not to give up, regardless of the situation they are faced with in their lives. I know I can't do this by myself therefore I'm seeking support and assistance.

Joseph Carrion Jr. will work with local residents to beautify Lorain County and surrounding towns by planting flowers and landscaping throughout Ohio. During this process, film camera crews will film the landscaping projects and will be incorporated in the movie. During the filming throughout different locations of Ohio, flowers and landscaping will be left behind as a memory of this beautiful movie project. The filming is projected to take a year. Editing the footage will also be time consuming.

The movie is going to be about a look at behind the scenes of making a movie in a real life situation. The life of a struggling unseen movie director trying to do his biggest project of his life. So many times he thought he was going to make something out himself however it simply wasn't in the cards for him. He feels it's his last chance. He's getting old. His motivation is fading. He lives in a basement because he can't afford anything else. Depression is over powering his days. He finally decided to take on the challenge and shake off the sadness and seclusion that has been keeping him pinned down for years. He thinks this is a way out. Not just to make a movie but to establish a meaningful purpose for his life. Then the search begins to find everything he needs.The footsteps and the rides excepted became experiences he will never forget.

This movie needs sponsors to make it happen. From every organization to the ones that have been trying to make a difference. I need everyone’s help. The whole community. From the youngest to the oldest, we must collectively gather the energy to light up Lorain County. That's why I'm coming back to my hometown. A movie in Lorain. Please refer to the movie page found on www.facebook.com/groups/ohio76.
After completion of the movie, I will have showings at many small towns throughout the United States. After each showing, the audience will leave with a small document with website information. The movie website will have all filming location addresses in Ohio and will welcome visitors to Ohio so they can walk in the same places the movie was filmed. The website will also have information on hotels, restaurants, and local attractions.

I will be adding as many extras from Ohio as possible to participate in the film including background actors and extras. My objective is to involve as many residents of Ohio as possible. These efforts will bring energy to everyone to light up Ohio. This movie can be something Ohio will be proud to be part of.
