"The Blacklight is a true independent film. We pulled together any and all resources to make this film without the backing of a major studio. Utilizing only private investor funding."


– Nick Snow (director/co-writer)

Production on THE BLACKLIGHT was done mostly in Rockford, Illinois, which served as the destination for its world theatrical premiere after a jammed packed year of award-winning screenings at top international film festivals. Producer Don Hatton, a Rockford native, is proud of the three year journey to get THE BLACKLIGHT from script to screen. New York based director, Nick Snow was also excited to take on the opportunity to bring the film to life with a skillfully cinematic eye, and a super talented ensemble cast.

"The core cast demonstrated amazing dedication to this project. Almost all of the key characters were cast as they were being developed. You'll see in the performances how every cast member further enhances the storyline."

– Nick Snow (director/co-writer)
