Writer and director Craig Whitney and producer Estefania Bonilla Hernandez traveled to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico this month to scout locations for the production of The Red Note with the help of the Chihuahua FIlm Commission.
During meeting for the film in Mexico City, The Red Note director Craig Whitney and co-producer Yahily Rivera visited the Museum of Memory and Tolerance to attend an exhibition on "Femicide in Mexico".
The Red Note screenplay has been named as a quarterfinalist in the Diversity category of the Cynosure Screenwriting Awards. The Cynosure Screenwriting Competition seeks to to promote scripts with compelling female protagonists and scripts that showcase diversity.
A script reading for The Red Note took place this weekend in Austin, Texas. The live reading featured Hispanic actors from across the central Texas area who generously gave their time to help the producers refine the script and tell the story of Juarez.
