Madison Stands In For Miami In MovieApr 9th, 2013 | By Lynette | Category: Front Page
It sounds strange, but movie magic can make a lot of things happen.
Actually, the only Madison sets used were Police Chief Gary Calhoun’s office, with the alley beside the police station doubling as the “crime scene.”
Carl Graddy, a friend of Chief Calhoun’s from Central Florida, is a consultant on the movie, the one who suggested Madison for some of the location work and asked Calhoun about the possibility.
The movie, Hidden Agenda, concerns a legendary Miami Detective named Matthews, a talented crime-solver who can usually crack a case right from his office. However, when an aggressive serial killer comes to town, it isn’t just another case in the dockets. The threat brings Matthews out of his office, even out of his precinct as he desperately tries to find a kidnap victim before it’s too late, while his world begin to unravel around him. It’s a crime drama that is as much a psychological thriller as it is a serial-murder mystery.
When Hidden Agenda is completed, it will have scenes filmed in Orlando, Madison and Oviedo, Fl. The City of Madison will receive thanks in the movie credits, but there won’t be anything identifying the Madison Police Department, since the movie supposedly takes place in Miami.
Aaron Warren is the producer/director, Hans Hernke of Los Angeles is Detective Matthews, Adam Barnett of New York is Captain Howard and Cameron Bigelow of Orlando is Detective Davis. Local talent and Rat Pact Theater member Tim Dunn plays a homeless man who finds the dead body in the alley. Additionally, look for Calhoun and other members of the Madison Police Department in cameo roles.
Hidden Agenda…coming soon to a theater near you.
