Local Man Writes Film Titled “The Sins Of Ashe County”
In an effort to bring more tourists and major film companies
to Ashe County North Carolina, local actor Michael Damian Kelleher has been
busy writing a feature length film called, “The Sins of Ashe County.”
“I have been working on it during my nights and weekends for the past two
months. The second draft should be completed by mid December. My associate
producer and I will then schedule auditions for the public in 2007, to read
through the script and offer editing advice,” Kelleher explained.
