On August 21, 2017 a Total Solar Eclipse crossed the length of the United States from the Oregon coast to North Carolina. This was the first full eclipse of its kind in almost a century. This eclipse was the most photographed and recorded in history. We decided to take advantage of this once in a lifetime event and build a narrative feature length film around it.
Two years in the making, In the Moon’sShadow provided a hit with audiences at the Maine International Film Festival with sold out performances.
Shot in the Belgrade Lakes region of Central Maine, and the quite contrasting Sand Hills of Nebraska, In the Moon’s Shadow uses the Solar Eclipse of 2017 to climax a story that focuses on seeing the familiar differently, as we do during an eclipse.
Debra Lord Cooke and Elissa Piszel play long-estranged sisters displaced by time and place who reconnect at a moment when their lives feel out of control. The vast plains of Nebraska provide an absolutely stunning backdrop to the eclipse.

The album earned enthusiastic reviews and led to extensive touring in the United States, Europe, and the United K
