Greencastle Greens is setting for film shoot


Alden Tuck, a former employee of Greencastle Greens, is shooting a short film at the golf course this week. The Walkersville, Md. native is making the movie for his senior thesis at New York University Tisch School of the Arts. He wrote the script and is director.

He and producer Oung-Jo Yuh, from Scarsdale, N.Y., are both majoring in film and television. Tuck chose the Greens because it carries the small town feel appropriate for his story line. He worked in the pro shop there in the summer of 2011.

“The Last Round” is about a high school golf prodigy whose father recently died. He plays his first round, with his dad present in his head, and ponders his future. Tuck is one of the three actors, and a crew of eight assists in the project.

“Not everyone gets to make a senior film,” he said. His idea was accepted by NYU and the final product will be entered into the university’s April 2013 film festival. Tuck will pitch it to national festivals as well.

Filming will take place Wednesday through Friday, with early morning starts to capture the dawn.
