Another historical pilot is being shot in VA. “Point of Honor,” about a Virginia family during the Civil War, is shooting around central VA next month. It’s being directed by Randall Wallace, who went to high school in Lynchburg, directed “Secretariat” and wrote/directed “Heaven Is for Real.” It’s produced by ABC & Amazon Studios, which will stream it as part of Amazon Prime. The project will be eligible for the Governor’s Motion Picture Opportunity Fund.
