June 6, 2017 by Katharin "K" Mraz
Two 9 Productions, Inc. (HALLOWEED, FINDING HOPE, WINDY) is currently working with Road 28 Productions (CROSSROADS) to shoot their next production, EVERY 21 SECONDS. Filming this month in and around Joliet, this dramatic feature film is based on the true story of Brian Sweeney, a man who was brutally attacked as a result of mistaken identity. He is not only a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) survivor, but a regular, fun-loving husband, father, and inspiration to all those around him. Sweeney is also the Executive Producer of the project beside Tracy McHale, a lifelong friend of Brian's and who also lost her husband to a TBI. The two decided to entrust award-winning short-film director, Kuba Luczkiewicz, who is making EVERY 21 SECONDS his feature film directorial debut.
Local Chicago talent Shannon Brown (THE CRASH, HALLOWEED) plays the lead role of Brian Sweeney in the movie, with supporting actress Kelly Thiebaud (GENERAL HOSPITAL/ HOSTEL III) taking on the role of his adoring wife, Mary Beth Sweeney. Other top billed talent includes Jim O’Heir (PARKS AND RECREATION), Robyn Coffin (CHICAGO FIRE), Jimmie Tolliver (B ROLL), and Jamie Bernadette (I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE).
Some of the key crew members: Suzette Brown (Producer) who is being credited as the “glue that has organized and kept the ship afloat,” states lead actor, Shannon Brown, to Screen Magazine. He also credits her for taking on the role of Line Producer. John Wesley Norton (SPADES, PRIVATE SCREENING), longtime Chicago filmmaker, is the Director of Photography, Crystal Forlano returns as the team’s Production Designer, and Tom Beach is mixing sound. After the production wraps later this summer Kuba Luczkiewicz, will be overseeing the edit with his wife, Kinga Luczkiewicz.
