Some of you have probably heard of a movie that is currently
in production here in SE Michigan called "Beyond the Mask."
It is being produced by Burns Family Studios, who made
"Pendragon, Sword of his Father" a couple of years back.
We have known the Burns family for several years, and have
played with them in different orchestras, etc..
Here's a little bit about the movie's storyline:
Beyond the Mask is an action-fused historic adventure, set in the international turmoil of the mid 1770′s. Running for his life, an East India Company assassin buried his past in a quiet English village, assuming the mantle of an Anglican priest. But this disguise won’t last for long when a woman he loves and a war he no longer wants force him to confront the question of who he really is. In the face of a looming global conflict, he discovers for himself the meaning and source of true justification and freedom.
They have several big-name actors involved - the most well-known would probably
be John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli the Dwarf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Anyways, Joseph and Jon were asked to be extras in a couple of
scenes as members of a colonial string quartet for "Beyond the Mask."

Here's one of the production updates -
one of the scenes we were in was shot at this location:
None of the scenes we were in were filmed here, but I thought
this would be of interest to the SE Michigan people;
The BTM team did a day or so of filming at Meadowbrook Hall!
|It will be so neat to see the local landmarks in this movie when it comes out!|
We had a great time, and can't wait until
"Beyond the Mask" comes out in December, 2013!
