Lewistown, MT: Los Angeles based Director Elizabeth Guilliams scored big again by teaming up with the Central Montana Medical Center (CMMC) located in Lewistown, MT. CMMC hired Guilliams, a long time viral video guru, to deliver a commercial about their grant funded healthcare for people with chronic conditions. While most directors would find this emotionally heavy task daunting, Guilliams produced comedy gold in a 2 minute commercial she wrote and directed highlighting the holistic care services CMMC offers 9 counties around Lewistown.
Managing the Herculean feat of shooting 10 setups in 10 hours with a mostly non-professional cast, Guilliams maintains that the only way the production team made their shooting schedule was that the entire community showed up to support the project. “Without everyone pitching in to help, there is no way we would have succeeded” she states. Guiliams was blown away by the local characters, scenic beauty and kindness of the community. Executive Producer, Paul-Michael Carr says “I’ve never had such ease in permitting and locking locations as working with the community of Lewistown and the Montana Film Commissioner. I would work here again in an instant.” Impressed by the heart of the community, as well as the Montana Film Board, Guilliams also cannot wait to return to Montana for her next project. She says, “I’d love to shoot for adventure brands or other awesome causes out here. It’s just gorgeous and there’s so much beauty to share.”
