Full-Length Feature Shot Locally Brings $2.1m in Direct Impact to South Jersey


Deputy Director Heather Simmons attended the Camden red carpet premiere of "Call Her King" at Gordon Theater on the campus of Rutgers Camden on June 29. “Call Her King” is the first full-length feature to receive assistance from the South Jersey Film Office Cooperative, under the leadership of Simmons, Camden County Commissioner Director Lou Cappelli and Hill Studio owner John Burzichelli.

Film locations during the 15-day shoot included Gloucester County’s ceremonial courtroom and Camden City Hall, helping account for the $2.1 million in direct economic impact of hosting this project locally.

This is the first production falling under Andrew van den Houten and Wes Miller’s newly formed BlackLight Entertainment banner, formed with the mission of providing quality opportunities for people of color and other traditionally disadvantaged people in front of and behind the camera.

The film stars Naturi Naughton and Lance Gross, Jason Mitchell, Johnny Messner, Nicholas Turturro, Tobias Truvillion, and will be available for streaming on BET+ starting July 6.

Information on the South Jersey Film Office Cooperative is available here.
