For young Hank Lewis, being stuck inside on a Saturday afternoon, forced to write a school paper while his friends play outside, is the least fun thing imaginable. But when his trip to the local library leaves him on the run from a real-life cowboy, Hank finds himself on a head-spinning flight of fancy through historical and fictional times that is sure to change his idea of fun. Join the adventure that will ultimately teach Hank the importance of believing in himself, the power of imagination, and the reality that exists in The Library.
The Library was shot on 16mm film in South and Central Florida. Locations ranged from Virginia Key to Universal Studios Orlando. The raw footage was digitized from the negative, edited on Avid, and the final edit was completed in 2000. All of the participants volunteered their time and talents for the film.
In addition to the film being recognized by the WorldFest Houston Film Festival as a Finalist, The Library also received a Silver Telly Award for excellence. The project went into development as a potential television series and was represented by Aggie Gold at Fresh Faces Agency in New York. The project is still available as a series concept for children’s television. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us on Facebook.
