[October 30, 2017]
- Shot on location around Logan County, Dead Draw puts a
heist worth 25 million dollars, a mysterious death and
one frozen night to the test. Headlining Lincoln Film
Festival’s Saturday evening, Dead Draw will screen at
7:30pm Hosted by Producer, Daniel Kolen.
“With only the support we
received from the Central Illinois community, we were able to
complete filming Dead Draw and have the film garner awards at
international film festivals and secure a distribution deal. We
are excited to end our festival run where the film began” said
Local involvement was spread far and wide. Lincoln College
hosted film cast and crew providing the entire Olin-Sang dorm.
The Heritage in Flight Museum provided what the film crew called
“a beautiful space to film and spend our nights in Lincoln, a
perfect location for filming.”
The City of Lincoln, The Lincoln Police Department, Fire
Department, Logan County Highway Dept, and Logan County
Sheriff's Department kept the shoot safe while filming in
Lincoln and provided police vehicles. The City of Atlanta shut
down the street outside the Palms Grille and the museum next
door, enabling some very specific shots to be filmed.

Individuals in the community even stepped up to make the filming
happen including Kevin Lessen by providing his airplane, Bill Thomas for working
with filming in Atlanta and Craig Horsch with the Atlanta National Bank which is
a centerpiece to the film.
