Koran Dunbar chats with key personnel during a filming break this past summer in Greencastle. Tiffany Vinson as production coordinator works on scheduling, wardrobe and organizing extras. Quevaughn Bryant is an actor and professional comedian. Waylon K. Smith wrote comedy sketches with Dunbar in high school and has been a partner for years to bring ‘Greencastle’ to fruition.

The trailer for the independent film “Greencastle” has been released. Greencastle and Hagerstown are the backdrop for the quirky offbeat faith-based drama about man’s search for meaning amidst the ache of despair.

The story chronicles Poitier, a single father who works as an assistant manager at a small town pet shop, as he enters a "quarter-life crisis" impelled by a recent tragedy.  “Greencastle” intertwines lives of loneliness and disconnection, fatefully leading Poitier toward an unexpected and sublime awakening.

The film began shooting June 16 and completed late in August.  Some shoot locations include Ava's and Nick’s Airport Inn in Hagerstown, The John Allison Public House and Funcastle in Greencastle.

In their final stages of post production, Rags 2 Riches Productions has released the full trailer of the film.
