An independent film, co-written by Kennebunk resident Steve Hrehovcik, filmed some scenes in Kittery over the weekend.
due out in 2009, tells the story of a Boston cop who gets involved in a
hit-and-run and then moves to the fictional town of Canada, Maine
(Hrehovcik is obviously fascinated by
the abudance of shared place-names in Maine; see below). The crew, led by director
John Depew, shot some bar and crowd scenes; one extra documented the experience on her personal blog. They also filmed a scene in the Kittery Police Station.
Hrehovcik (pronounced Hero-check) and his son, Josh, also write and produce a humorous series called "Bruce McToose: Intrepid Traveler," which takes its somewhat hapless title character to places throughout Maine that aren't quite what (or where) he thinks they are. The first episode, "Norway," has Bruce McToose asking locals where he can find the fjords. New episodes will be online soon.
