In late 2012, Washington Filmworks committed funding assistance to five projects helmed by emerging Washington filmmakers through the inaugural Film Cycle of the Filmworks Innovation Lab. Tony Fulgham’s Box Walk is the first of those projects to go into production. The short film is a coming-of-age story set in rural Eastern Washington, that spans almost two decades. A quiet thirteen-year-old and his rough and silent stepfather track down a wounded deer. The lessons learned in those dark woods aren’t fully realized until seventeen years later, when the teenager, now a grown man, pays a visit to his stepfather.
This March the short film shot for five days, bringing production into more remote areas of Washington, including Moses Lake, Soap Lake, Mazama, Winthrop and Cle Elum.
