‘Beautiful Garden’ Blossoms for Cleveland Filmmaker

Midwest Movie Maker contributor Peter Balint introduces us to Cleveland native Chris Peplin. Peplin recently wrapped production on Beautiful Garden, a project driven in small part by one goal: make a feature length film by the time Peplin celebrates his 30th birthday. He’ll do it — with time to spare.

Peplin grew up in the Cleveland area and, at an early age, realized his calling. He studied film at Cleveland State, worked a few internships and then decided to fast-track his career by moving to L.A. to attend The New York Film Academy. After completing the 12-month program, he carried the filmmaking torch back to the Midwest.

Peplin wrote, produced and directed Beautiful Garden. And it’s independent film at it’s best.
