Chris just wrapped his first feature film, The Grace of Jake, which was shot entirely on location in his hometown of Forrest City, AR. With a cast including Jordin Sparks, Jake La Botz, Lew Temple, Roy Lee Jones, and Ravi Kapoor, and Michael Beck, this indie about crop dusters and gospel churches has the organic look and feel of other southern filmmakers such as Terrance Mallick, Jeff Nichols, and David Gordon Green. Based on a script written by Hicky, this feature was crowd-source funded through Kickstarter. Currently in post-production, Hicky hopes to share the movie on the festival circuit in 2014.
