                                                 Lilly Menard who is playing Sugar

The winter is dragging on but we are putting together the pieces for the film. We are waiting for the snow to melt and the temperature to warm up so we can get back into the woods to go shoot this movie! I am extremely pleased to announce that Ben Thompson and Ed Conley have joined the team as the musicians who are creating original music for Sugar.

I have known Ben for well over twenty five years. He is a very accomplished musician. Ben and Ed's current music project is Flee From Utah. Here is a link to their band camp page: here  and their FaceBook page here. I have heard their initial creative ideas and I'm very excited by what they are cooking up.

Sugar is produced by Sarah Dillard Mitchell, Mike Scott and Robert A. Mitchell. It will be in production May 2015.
