‘Doonby’ & ‘God’s Country’ star Jenn Gotzon wraps crime-suspense ‘Sinking Sand’ in Savannah, GA to film murder-mystery ‘The Colors of Emily’ in New Harmony, IN.
Actress Jenn Gotzon goes into production on ‘The Colors of Emily’ in New Harmony, Indiana Monday Oct. 13, 2014. Gotzon, who received “Award of Excellence for ‘Doonby’ and Outstanding Contribution to the Entertainment World” from the Film Advisory Board, is using her calling to portray authentic depictions of the human condition by playing protagonist women in redemptive movies.
Gotzon selects impactful films to bring hope and inspiration to viewer’s lives from the lessons learned through the character’s complex journey of good and bad choices. Upon film’s release, Gotzon tours with her movies holding interactive discussions with audiences nationwide.
On Sept. 27, she threw her stake in completing ‘Sinking Sand’, a story compared to novelist John Grisham style-writing (‘The Firm’, ‘A Time to Kill’) by True Exposure’s Brian Yarbrough about a loving wife (Gotzon) who murders a blackmailer (Jim E. Chandler, character actor in viral YouTube videos, 10mil+ hits) to protect her husband’s (Tom Clark, Emmy-winning host of NBC’s ‘Peachtree Morning in Atlanta’) flourishing law career as she watches him prosecute against law friend (Kevin Sizemore, Gary Humphrey in ABC’s ‘Resurrection’).
Yarbrough directs this heartfelt twist-and-turn suspense thriller through a visual composition similar to Alfred Hitchcock’s backdrop of light, shadows and character moods exploration through the both. ‘Sinking Sand’ – co-produced by Gotzon’s ‘Untouched’ co-star Chip Lane, takes place in Savannah and Tybee Island, GA – theatrical releases mid-2015.

Mid-Oct. begins filming the first of three slated family, murder-mystery movies, ‘The Colors of Emily’ (in vein of TV’s cartoon ‘Scooby Doo’) in which Gotzon plays Kate Montgomery, an art buyer searching for something missing in her life, finds murder clues through blind artist Emily’s (newcomer Brittany Mann) paintings. ‘The Colors of Emily’ adapted from Michael Arnold’s book is being produced by Rossetti Productions, TPTFILMS Entertainment and Fire Catcher Productions.
“I’m looking forward to working with old friends from ‘Right to Believe’ director Chip Rossetti, producers Timothy Paul Taylor, Matthew Helm and co-stars Greg Robbins (father in TV pilot “Heaven Help Us”) and Jim E. Chandler (love-interest blackmailer in ‘Sinking Sand’) who share same passion to make movies that will compel audiences to be entertained and then find hope in their own lives,” Gotzon energetically states.
