DIRECTOR’S NOTES : “A Country Road was a film that I was brought onto late in the planning stages. As a director who enjoys new and exciting material, I welcomed the project with open arms. After reading the script, I felt that this was a story that I could connect to on a personal level. At its core, it is a family story. We worked tirelessly on the script to deliver the film we have today, and we are all very proud of what we’ve accomplished.
Working with so many talented and driven individuals on this film was an inspiration. We had over 50 people in different departments helping to make this project a reality, and it shows in the finished product.
A fun fact: we shot multiple endings for this film, which was a first for me. What you don’t get to see is a special effect of a bullet hit to the chest of one of the characters. It was a frigid night, and we only had 3 tries to get it right. Of course, as luck would have it, it worked perfectly on the last try. While the effect is cut out of the final film, everyone on set was thrilled with how the effect turned out.
While the film does venture into dark territory, we hope that the heart at the center of this film shines through. I certainly think that it does.” –Tyler Hickman
