Demián Bichir and T.J. Miller have joined Lynn Cohen, Erik Hellman, Tony LoVerde, Chris Sullivan and Jamie Horton in Walden: Life in the Woods, an indie film that’s shooting in Colorado. Alex Harvey is directing from Adam Chanzit’s script. The reimagining of Henry David Thoreau’s treatise on nature interlaces three stories about the trappings of 21st century life and a few unlikely transcendentalists who dream dangerously of escape. The narrative includes stop-motion animation spearheaded by Laura Goldhamer, who also is penning an original score. Mitch Dickman, Shane Boris and Allison Greenberg are producing, with Filmmaker magazine co-founder/editor Scott Macaulay exec producing. The pic was funded in part by arts philanthropists and investors in the region and is landed an incentive package from Colorado’s Office of Film, Television and Media. The Denver Film Society also is sponsoring it.
