Table 31 Productions and The Oklahoma Film & Music Office are pleased to announce the production of the upcoming feature film, Element, in Oklahoma.
Element tells the story of a financial advisor who loses his wife and his memory during a random shooting. Desperate to rediscover his past, he turns to hypnosis and is confronted by a world of love, paranoia and revenge.
The film will be produced by Table 31 Productions in association with Highland Myst Entertainment and Circus Wheel Productions. Written by Brett Alan Bentman, Element will be directed by festival award-winning filmmaker Jon Keeyes, most known for his work Nightmare Box.
The psychological thriller stars Michael Ironside, most known for his roles in Top Gun (1986), Total Recall (1990) and The Machinist (2004).
Principal photography of the film will begin on June 7, 2014 and take place over sixteen days, featuring prominent Oklahoma City locations such as Staplegun, CityPlace, The Montgomery, Paramount Café, Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse and the First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City.
“Once we started working with the Oklahoma Film & Music Office, we decided to incorporate a little Oklahoma flavor into the script’s atmosphere and sound design,” said Mollie Milligan, co-founder of Table 31 Productions. “We want Oklahoma City’s vibrant energy to be an integral part of Element.”
Element is utilizing the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program, facilitated by the Oklahoma Film & Music Office.
Jill Simpson, Director of the Oklahoma Film & Music Office said,“We have been working extensively with legislators to make projects like Element possible. Building an infrastructure for filmmaking in Oklahoma is a powerful economic driver that will create jobs and attract outside investments. We are very excited that Table 31 has decided to bring their project to Oklahoma City.”
