Fillmmaker Marni Zelnick in town for screening and will hold a Q&A session following the 6PM screening at the Regal Cinema in Winter Park Village with Executive Producer Maureen Mayer.

By now, you should already know a lot about Druid Peak. We have conducted interviews with the Spencer Treat Clark who plays the lead role, Executive Producer Maureen Mayer, and writer and director Marni Zelnick. Last weekend, local filmmaker Jason Jack Underwood and I attended the films southeastern premiere at the Enzian Theater in Maitland.
Maureen Mayer, who executive produced the film was kind enough to let us sit at her table as the film captivated a full house. Afterwards, she and her husband Dr. Thom Mayer who serves as the medical director of the NFL Players Association, shared with us some behind the scenes details about the making of Druid Peak – details that her and Marni were looking forward to sharing with the audience at tonights showing during the post-film question and answer.
Without giving away too much, what I can tell you is that the group that provided the real live wolves for Druid Peak also provided the mammoth of a grizzly bear that Brienne of Tarth fought off last season in Game of Thrones.
I don’t want to give away or spoil Druid Peak for anyone, but let’s just say it has more than a few curveballs that you won’t see coming and is insanely beautiful & worthwhile – both in the landscapes being filmed and the performances by a truly talented cast. FACT – it will be the best $11 you spend this month.
Cancel your plans tonite & make new ones. Leave your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife at home if they don’t want to come. You owe it to yourself to see Druid Peak and have the chance to really learn how a film is made during the Q&A with the filmmaker and executive producer.
