Filmed in Carbon County and from director Michael Zaccaria, "Under the Trees' will be shown at the Price auditorium April 3 at 7:30 p.m.

The free event will include a bonus showing of Zaccaria's first film, "Bloodshank," co-written, co-directed and co-produced with Helper resident Tyler Woodbury.

"'Under the Trees' is the third film I've been fortunate enough to direct over the last two years," said Zaccaria, a Price native. "It started off as a simple idea I told my older brother just one night. I didn't want it to be a serious film, but more of an exercise for my directing and his acting. I told Justin I'd write a 10-page screenplay and have it done in a week. Two weeks and 23 pages later, we began to plot the date for filming."

After graduating from Los Angeles Film School, Zaccaria decided to return to Carbon County and film the short mystery and murder feature in locations outside of Helper and Price.

The film was produced in December 2008. The story involves a simple man who stumbles upon a secret and is taken on a journey he will never forget.

The crew consisted of eight people, Joshua Harrel, Kyle Dresser and Joel Stanton as well as Helper local Tyler Woodbury and Price locals Dallas Howa and Justin Zaccaria, who played the lead role.

"We had originally thought we would shoot with a three to four person crew," said Zaccaria. "But with the amount of work the film required to fulfill the vision I had, I knew it wouldn't pass as just an exercise. More skilled hands were needed."

A Carbon High School and College of Eastern Utah graduate, Zaccaria pursued a career in film, majoring in directing and cinematography.
