Thomas L. Phillips drops bombshell: Movie plans have changed

Filmmaker announces 'with great sadness and regret' that Where I Begin will not happen in Columbia this summer after all. Personal, private reasons are to blame, he says
By Thomas L. Phillips, filmmaker

It is with great sadness and regret that the filming of Where I Begin will not happen this summer in Columbia Kentucky. We had worked hard to make this happen, and there was so much support from the entire community.

For the last three months I have poured my heart and soul into this project, and was more than excited to be bringing my latest project into Adair County. There was not one person whom I came across during the process who was not excited and offered their support. The city, community, local businesses and the general public were all there with a helpful hand.

The reason the filming is not happening in Columbia is a very personal one, and I am sorry that I cannot explain further.

I am truly sorry for getting so far into the project here and having to pull out. Please know that if I could change it, I would. I wanted nothing more than to make Columbia my home and to make the movie here.-Thomas L. Phillips
