Paladin Pictures Feature Film To Make World Premiere at Festival

Charlottesville, Virginia - February 14, 2005 - Charlottesville-based media company Paladin Pictures and The Brothers Williamson will debut their dramatic film When Love Walks In at the Bare Bones International Independent Film Festival (BBIIFF) April 18-24. When Love Walks In is one of twenty-five feature films accepted in the festival’s narrative category and is the first of only two full-length films that will receive multiple screenings.

Filmed entirely in Albemarle and Buckingham counties, When Love Walks In tells the story of John Redgrave, a photographer who struggles to raise his three-year-old daughter after his wife’s untimely death. Emotionally devastated, he attempts to pick-up the pieces of his shattered life with the help of his charming father and an unlikely new love interest. Elements of loss, love, and eventual restoration have pre-release audiences comparing When Love Walks In to films like Bounce starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow and Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

The release of When Love Walks In is reason for celebration. Originally scripted in 1997, the project has been shaped and remolded for nearly a decade before finding its current final form. Working with virtually no budget, almost every aspect of the film’s production was done pro bono as each actor, crewmember, editor, and even caterer donated his time and talents. Producer/Co-director Kent C. Williamson explains, “It was amazing the way the local film community came together to help make When Love Walks In. Actors and crewmembers bent over backwards to help get this film in the can.”

In addition to utilizing local talent in front of and behind the camera, Williamson gathered an impressive list of well-known musicians for the film’s soundtrack. Artists such as Carbon Leaf and singer/songwriter Terri Allard made contributions along with Messenger, a Richmond-based band, who wrote the film’s theme song. University of Virginia professor Stephan Prock played a crucial role, composing nearly fifty pieces of original music for the film’s score.

The film’s acceptance into the BBIIFF is certainly a great achievement for The Brothers Williamson and Paladin Pictures. Founded in 1999 in Muskogee, Oklahoma, the festival has welcomed thousands of filmmakers and movie-enthusiasts from around the world, extending hospitality to all and recognizing the best with coveted “Bonehead” awards. Along with screenings of various films, the festival showcases unique community events such as free instructional seminars and “movie career days,” where school children are invited to explore the art of filmmaking.

When Love Walks In will be shown on Tuesday, April 19th at 6:00 p.m. in the festival’s “Venue A” screening location and on Saturday, April 23rd at 10:00 p.m. in “Venue C,” bringing the festival to a close.
