(CBS) — A Lake Forest filmmaker is getting a lot of attention…overseas.
Jim Kreutzer’s newest venture “Tommy’s Honour” about two of golf’s earliest superstars, Old Tom Morris and his son Young Tom Morris, who lived in Scotland in the 1860s and 1870s, was recently nominated in two major categories, Best Feature Film and Best Actor in a Feature Film (Jack Lowden), by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in Scotland, where the movie was filmed.
The awards honor the very best of film, television and games produced over the past year in Scotland.
Kreutzer tells WBBM’s Terry Keshner that “Tommy’s Honour” is about a lot more than golf.
“There are common themes throughout it, such as father-son, class distinctions, relationships, life, death, tragedy,” he says.
“When you develop a project — whether you live in California or whether you live in the suburbs of Chicago, which seems a little far-fetched — the reality is you’re still matching people. You find a story, you match the story to a director, you match a story to a screenwriter and you hope that rhgough that matchmaking of yours, that project’s come together,” Kreutzer added.
