Did you know?

It was filmed in Judith Gap, Montana.

The director’s statement reads “The script was inspired largely by hunting trips I took with my own father ten or so years ago. It was a real treat for both of us to have him work on this movie -- credited, at his request, as Key Grip Emeritus. I find myself often writing about fathers and sons, even as I try to navigate my own course among them. I feel very lucky to have a father who has come to understand and support my passion for filmmaking. This film is for him.”A scene from Dancing Ground, http://www.dancing-ground.blogspot.com/

Randall Newsome has acted in W., Law & Order, Benji: Off the Leash!, Big Fat Liar and Highlander II: The Quickening. He was also the assistant director for Buried Alive, Disorganized Crime and The Mighty Quinn.
