OKLAHOMA CITY – Production has started in Oklahoma City and Guthrie on the feature film Overexposed.

The film is using the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program administered by the Oklahoma Film + Music Office, part of the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department.

Principal photography is scheduled to start Feb. 6.

It is the second film in Oklahoma by director Conor Allyn in less than a year. This past summer Allyn was director for Forsaken, which also used Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program.

Overexposed is a thriller set in small-town Oklahoma. A teenage girl, whose mother is the local sheriff, is caught up in a sexting scandal that leads to panic, outrage and murder.

The film teams writer/director Conor Allyn’s Margate House Films with ASP for the first of several planned co-productions between the U.S. and British international production companies.

The film’s producer is Rob Allyn of Margate House Films, and Simon Fawcett of United Kingdom-based Atlantic Screen Productions is the producer-financier. Larry Mortorff of Atlantic Screen Productions is the executive producer.

“Between the authentic locations, the crew and overall support, we felt that there was no better place for us to film than Oklahoma,” said Fawcett.

The cast includes Marguerite Moreau, Mary Katherine Duhon, Dave Maldonado and Taylor Murphy.

Nathan Gardocki is the production manager with a production crew composed almost entirely of Oklahoma residents.
