We are in preproduction for a new short film entitled "Going Home". Below (click on ANNOUNCING above) you will find a summary overview of the project.

We are requesting support in the form of donations. Your  donation can be made at the following link:                                        

 GOING HOME                    

Brian Hill, a recently paroled man, claims he was wrongfully sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit, but all the evidence points to him. His only goal in life is to prove his innocence to the daughter he has never met. He is faced with many difficult challenges along the way. His entire family and all but one friend have abandoned him. Will he finally overcome these difficult obstacles? Will he wind up back in prison or will he die trying?

This heartfelt story was written by Detective Greg Nutcher (ret.) based on experiences he had throughout his 20 year career as a police officer. This film will not only be entertaining, but will also take a look at the criminal justice system from the perspective of a police detective. This film will also remind police officers how important it

is to conduct a thorough investigation on each and every crime, regardless of what the evidence is revealing.

 Greg's experiences in law enforcement bring this story to life, in not only an entertaining way, but from an eye that has seen the best and worst in people. Greg has investigated every kind of horrible act of man that one can imagine.

No matter what your beliefs are about the death penalty, this film will certainly make you think twice before passing judgment. You will be on the edge of your seat throughout this film.

On May 23rd, we start principal photography with an award winning director and a highly credited cast and crew. Please help make this film the best we possibly can and donate what you can. The entire cast and crew truly believes we will touch lives and make a difference with this film. You can make this happen.

Your contribution will go towards all aspects of production and post production, including equipment rentals, location expenses, hotel rooms for cast and crew, music composing, sound engineering, color correction, etc. When complete, funding will help promote the film as we submit to film festivals. You can make this happen. Please bring this story to reality with your generous donate.

Thank you.



About James W. Hawk - filmmaker

Hawk James W.
(HawkMedia Studios and HawkFilme)

James "Jim" W. Hawk was born on March 22, 1945 in New Eagle, Pennsylvania. He is of German, Irish, Scottish and Native American (Seneca) decent. At the age of three, he was moved to Cleveland, Ohio. In 1972, he pursued a career in industrial sales and marketing with a Fortune 500 company which resulted in he and his family being relocate to Rochester, New York, South Bend, Indiana and finally, New Haven, Connecticut.

Jim's first independent film project was a two hour and four part documentary called The Old School Roadster on a Budget featuring Larry, a local car guy who built a Roadster in his garage. It was aired on television stations throughout Connecticut. The next project was a commercial for Doritos. The winner of the contest would have their entry shown during the Super Bowl. He didn't win, but he made an outstanding creative work nonetheless. Having these under his belt, he needed the next greater challenge...he wanted to make a short narrative film.

Jim wrote, produced and directed Alpha to Omega: Part 4 with limited resources, but plenty of ingenuity. He wanted to keep it simple so he developed a story line and screenplay featuring the last man on Earth. After lots of work and some luck finding resources, it all came together as his first narrative short film.

Since that time, he has produced, written and directed several short films, documentaries, music filmes commercials and industrial presentations. He has also worked for the Connecticut Film Industry Training Program for two years as an Associate Producer and Director of the "behind the scenes" film of the program for four years. He has been interviewed on television regarding the making of one of his short films. He has had several minor acting parts in independent films. He has taken filmmaking classes at Quinnipiac University. He has had his films shown at film festivals, on local television and at other public venues.

He is always either planning, producing or searching for his next greater challenge.
