From Staff Reports
Local indie filmmaker and actor, Grant Weaver, wrapped production on an upcoming 5-episode web series called Unaware. Scenes were recently filmed in downtown Newnan at Redneck Gourmet, Wadsworth Alley, and the Salbide Avenue bridge. Grant is a senior at Newnan High School and a film intern at the Central Education Center.
Unaware tells the story of seven homeless kids who are trying to make their way in the cruel world they live in. Some look at each other like family while others believe they will never have a family again. Regardless, they all attempt to live and thrive together. But when a secret gets out, and someone gets hurt, this family gets closer than they ever have with any family before.
Grant assembled a cast of professional actors for the series including Rickey K. Brown, Kendall Hanzlik, Shane Donovan Lewis, Boston Pierce, Codey Pierce, Leah Thompkins, Bridget Upchurch, William Webber, and Robert Howard Jr. The crew includes Jesslyn Clemens, Garrett Jones, Lloyd Weaver and Stella Weaver.
Grant wrote and directed the film and is currently editing the footage in post-production. Grant’s production company, Paradox Productions, will release the series later this year.
