Director-writer Will Canon said locations from his childhood inspired him to shoot the film Brotherhood.
Brotherhood is a gripping action movie about how far a college student will go to join a fraternity. In the film, a college student has to rob a convenience store and then stand up to the rest of the guys to save his friend's life.
Director and co-writer Will Canon graduated from Arlington High School and NYU's film program. He came back to his hometown and shot part of the movie in a UT Arlington frat house.
Filming also was done at a boarded-up convenience store in Canon's old neighborhood. The crew had to re-stock the entire store for the shoot.
"It had been abandoned. There was no electricity. There was no air conditioning. And we were shooting it in August in Texas, so I don't have to tell anybody here how hot that is," said Canon. "I was just very kind of inspired by the place I grew up, the way I grew up, and the people here. So for me to be back there shooting my first film there, it was surreal, but it was also a lot of fun."
