Seven Days ‘Till Midnight

A wilderness survival genre blending drama/sci-fi feature film

Director James Suttles' Film Seven Days 'Till Midnight

Seven Days ‘Till Midnight is the study of one mans journey not only in the wilderness but also a journey inside his mind, his emotions and his past choices. His planned escape is a chance at a much needed break from a life he has turned his back on. A life he feels was in error. A life he feels has been wasted.

That feeling of being lost and without direction is something that so many of us experience at one point or another during our lives. This story explores the root cause of those emotions and ultimately presents an interesting question, if you could, would you really go back and change the past?

With the backdrop of the wilderness and the story ultimately developing into a survival film, Seven Days ‘Till Midnight will be a beautiful, dark, deep exploratory film that excites through action and entertains through emotion as the audience quickly realizes that there is a little bit of Harmon in each and everyone of them.

The magic of this film resides in the simple structure, the sophisticated story, the amazing locations and the opportunity to create visuals that will haunt the audience with the beauty of the wilderness. “Seven Days ’Till Midnight” should be seen as an opportunity to explore the beauty of human nature set within the world of Mother Nature and discover what happens when those two worlds collide in unexpected ways.


Red Dirt Rising

Red Dirt Rising PosterA feature film based on a true story, ‘Red Dirt Rising’ is the story of love in the time of moonshine as three of stock car racing’s earliest heroes come of age to find escape from life’s challenges on the track, ultimately shaping the future of their families — and auto racing — during the Fightin’ Forties.

 Jimmie Lewallen leads the pack as he struggles to extract himself from a life of poverty. Risky bootlegging and family farm obligations present early obstacles, but when he falls for a mysterious divorcee, Carrie James, he has to find a way to harmonize family and his love of racing.

Jimmie encounters camaraderie and competition in his best friends Bill Blair and Fred Harb. Together, their antics lay the groundwork for one of the most lucrative sports in the world. As racing’s popularity rises, the boys witness tragedy and unscrupulous business practices until one man’s vision to legitimize the sport offers them the chance of a lifetime.

From hauling moonshine on warm North Carolina evenings to marriage and fatherhood, the stakes are raised when the U.S. enters World War II and Jimmie must prove himself an honorable man on the battlefield, the track and at home. Many important racing firsts occurred during the Fightin’ Forties, making this film a sensational history lesson as well as an exciting journey of romance, friendship and action.


 Alone Yet Not Alone

Alone Yet Not Alone is based on Tracy Leininger Craven’s novel of the same name and the true story of Barbara and Regina Leininger, who were taken forcibly from their German immigrant family in 1750s Pennsylvania.  Alone Yet Not Alone received an Academy Award Nomination in 2014 for Best Song “Alone Yet Not Alone” and weeks later the nomination was rescinded in what is arguably one of the most contreversial Academy Awards decisions in recent history.
