A feature film crew plans to spend at least another week in Goshen.
They're shooting Sand Castles, a drama.
“In small-town Indiana, a family has crumbled after their five-year-old daughter is kidnapped. Over a decade later, she is found and comes back to a broken home, mute,” reads a description on the film’s Facebook page.
Sand Castles was written by Jordon Hodges, a producer and actor who grew up in Goshen, and also plays a role in the film.
The crew spent the past few days shooting scenes at Hodges' grandfather's home in Goshen.
Hodges says he could've shot Sand Castles in Los Angeles, and it would've been cheaper, but he says there's something about Goshen that he just couldn't resist.
“I love it, the town itself has a character, the trains, and the buildings,” said Hodges, “it’s just cool to come back and spend time with friends and family while you’re doing what you love.”
They also shot scenes in St. Joseph, Michigan -- at the beach and at Lakeland hospital, Hodges said.
He expects the film to run at major film festivals and in larger cities.
Sand Castles should hit theaters sometime next year or in 2014, Hodges said.
