The Washington Filmworks production incentive project A Bit of Bad Luck recently wrapped principal photography after shooting 22 days in Seattle and Morton, Washington. This is one of 15 projects approved for funding assistance by Washington Filmworks. These 15 projects spent an estimated $10 million in Washington’s economy in five months.
“Our movie was shot in Seattle and Morton, and the locations were perfect for us to tell this story. The incentive made it possible for us to stay and film here in Washington. Without the incentive we would not have had the funds to complete the project, and just as important, there would not have been such talented crew available locally to support the production,” said Producer Gerrarda O’Beirne.
The feature film was written and directed by John Fuhman and stars Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), and Agnes Bruckner (Blood and Chocolate). It tells the story of Brooks Caldwell, a man who has it all: money, power, and a beautiful socialite wife. When Brooks plans a weekend romp with his young mistress, his wife sets in motion an elaborate plot of revenge.
