Locals join Dallas film shoot

Producers of time travel movie seek investors

EDMOND — University of Central Oklahoma graduate Page Tudyk recently landed the lead supporting actress role in the film “I,” due to start filming this summer in Edmond and the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Tudyk graduated from UCO in May 2012 with a degree in theater performance. Her talent didn’t go unnoticed by friend Troy Ford, who will play the lead role in “I.” Ford already had signed on as Harrison Tyme when he suggested Tudyk play his opposite and love interest in the film.

“We acted together previously and just have great chemistry,” Tudyk said.

The film is being produced by JR Jordan, CEO of Stoney Indian Films, based in Dallas.

“I” is the complicated story about time travel and how every decision can alter your future. A young man — Ford playing the role of Harrison Tyme — is delivered a package by someone that looks exactly like him, but seeing as he is running late for work he dismisses the incident. At work is where you are introduced to Harrison Tyme’s love interest, Page Tudyk playing the character Jessica Day. The package is revealed to be a pair of glasses that are a time machine but will the glasses create the life Harrison Tyme always wanted or will it end in tragedy?

“I believe with all my heart that this is a great story and will have several gee whiz moments as well as a twist ending,” Jordan said.

Tudyk is excited to dive into her character because she feels they’re similar in many ways.

“My character doesn’t understand how he (Harrison Tyme) is feeling and I’ve been familiar with this before and after I feel silly but yet my character is still really intelligent,” Tudyk said.

One of the interesting things about this film is its business model, the traditional route would be to find investors but Stoney Indian Films wants to make a trade out with Edmond. Any business or entity that can donate a location, props, costumes, goods or services will get a professional commercial to help advance their business.

“It is a win-win and keeps cost down,” Jordan said.

“I” is still in the pre-production phase. They are building storyboards, making contacts to create awareness and scouting locations. They anticipate filming to begin this summer.

“We are doing everything we possibly can to get this project up and running, but we cannot do it without the support of our local communities,” Jordan said.
