This summer, writer/director Chaz Lee and Valley production company Six Gun Entertainment, LLC are filming the first-ever feature length western, “Copper Wind,” filmed exclusively in Arizona. The production, which centers on love, hate, vengeance and discovery, will feature all Arizona scenery and talent.
Production began on June 6, with a cast of more than 25 Arizona professionals. Numerous other Arizona personalities will make cameo appearances in the film, including:
• Cory McCloskey (FOX 10 news),
• Bill Thompson (Wallace and Ladmo show),
• Bobbi Jeen Olson (Arizona Country TV),
• Bob Roloff (the Arizona Duuude, Arizona character),
• Pat McMahon (KTAR FM),
• George Nelson (famous stuntman), and
• Patrick Heigl (Sanderson Lincoln), among others.
According to Lee, Copper Wind will showcase all that Arizona has to offer.
“In addition to being the first, full-length western to feature all Arizona talent and incredible scenery, this film has the lingo, locations and wardrobe of 1881,” says Lee. “This is the first Arizona western to be shot exclusively in our state from start to finish. While it is a fictitious tale, moviegoers will experience the turbulent era that was characteristic of the Wild West more than 100 years ago. Six Gun Entertainment decided to move forward in producing this film during the summer of 2012 because a strong production company needed to step up and showcase Arizona, its history and its ability to complete an exciting movie that will stimulate interest in our state’s film community.”
