“Grief is always a difficult subject to deal with, but this movie does an excellent job,” comments Dove Foundation film critic Donna Rolfe in reference to When Love Walks In. “Even though this is a serious topic, this film gives you a few laughs as Art tries to set things in motion for John to find a new mother for Sierra. This movie has many emotions such as sadness, comedy, joy, and love all wrapped into one. Watching this may give you thoughts about changes in your life.”

To bring films such as When Love Walks In to an eager audience, The Dove Foundation has also begun The Dove Movie Channel, a natural extension that provides films and videos especially selected for hospitalized children. These films are shown on the patients' television sets over a designated channel and each participating hospital receives a catalog of over 100 movie titles from which to choose.

When Love Walks In was written and produced by Kent C. Williamson and Directed by Brad Williamson--known together as The Brothers Williamson. In addition to promoting When Love Walks In, the duo is also currently in production on a thought-provoking documentary called Rebellion of Thought that explores faith in a post-modern world.

Local Filmmaker To Screen Award-Winning Film in Michigan

Charlottesville, Virginia – August 8, 2005 – Filmmaker Brad Williamson—long-time resident of Sawyer, Michigan—will screen his award-winning dramatic film When Love Walks In at the Vickers Theatre in Three Oaks, Michigan on August 16 & 17 at 7:00 p.m. Brad and sibling Kent C. Williamson are known as The Brothers Williamson and have produced this feature-length film in conjunction with Virginia-based media company Paladin Pictures. The filmmakers have already experienced success with When Love Walks In, having received seven awards for the film since its April release.


When Love Walks In is the first full-length film that Williamson has directed. Born in Austin, Texas, Williamson gained experience as a freelance still photographer before beginning his own photography business that has become Sawyer-based Harbor Country Photography. As a result of that background, the move into motion pictures was a relatively seamless one. It has assisted Williamson not only with When Love Walks In, but also in the creation of Rebellion of Thought, a thought-provoking documentary that explores the role of faith in a post-modern world, currently in post-production.
 
In addition to filmmaking, Williamson has divided his career with an unlikely occupation. When not creating artistic images, he conducts management assessments and investigations at nuclear generating stations, even traveling overseas in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency. Between his diverse travels, he resides in Sawyer, Michigan where he has lived for over a decade with his wife and four children.

Paladin Pictures Film Wins Four Awards at International Festival

Charlottesville, Virginia – May 3, 2005 – Local media company Paladin Pictures and The Brothers Williamson received four awards for their feature film When Love Walks In at the Bare Bones International Independent Film Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Out of twenty-five feature motion pictures accepted into this year’s festival, the makers of When Love Walks In were recognized for Best Clean Flick, Best Actress, Best Soundtrack, and Best Festival Marketing.

“Winning the award was one of the highlights of my 30-year acting career,” Richmond actress Terri Moore explains. “It speaks so highly of this film that in today’s world, a nice family film has been honored, and I had the opportunity to act in a film without having to compromise my beliefs and morals.”

The family-friendly nature of When Love Walks In qualified the project for the “Best Clean Flick” category, an award that aims to recognize filmmakers for excellence in storytelling without the gratuitous use of violence, language, or nudity. Producer Kent C. Williamson comments, “As a company who strives to promote positive values and morals in our culture, we see the Best Clean Flick award as a great accomplishment. When Love Walks In targets an extensive audience that mainstream Hollywood tends to alienate, but the story is strong enough to appeal to a wide range of movie-goers.” Elements of loss, love, and eventual restoration have audiences comparing When Love Walks In to films like Bounce starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow and Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Originally filmed in 1998, the project has been shaped and remolded for nearly a decade before finding its current final form, and with each actor donating his or her time and talents to the effort, the festival nominations are especially appreciated. Terri Moore, who plays Nora Machiavelli and was nominated for Best Female Actor says, “I am thrilled beyond belief at receiving a nomination for my fledgling work on a film. I’m flying pretty high right now, and thrilled for everybody involved with W.L.W.I.”

The cast of When Love Walks In has continued to experience success in their individual careers. Lead actor Kent C. Williamson has found work in projects such as Mickey, the John Grisham film with Hugh Wilson and Harry Connick, Jr., as well as in television shows such as Legacy on UPN. Melissa Dawn Bryant, who plays the wife of John Redgrave in When Love Walks In, has since made appearances on soap operas As The World Turns and One Life to Live, in addition to acting in numerous national commercials and theatrical performances.

When Love Walks In will be shown on Tuesday, April 19th at 6:00 p.m. in the festival’s “Venue A” screening location and on Saturday, April 23rd at 10:15 p.m. in “Venue C.” The festival awards presentation is scheduled for 3:00 on Sunday, April 24th.

Paladin Pictures Feature Film To Make World Premiere at Festival

Charlottesville, Virginia - February 14, 2005 - Charlottesville-based media company Paladin Pictures and The Brothers Williamson will debut their dramatic film When Love Walks In at the Bare Bones International Independent Film Festival (BBIIFF) April 18-24. When Love Walks In is one of twenty-five feature films accepted in the festival’s narrative category and is the first of only two full-length films that will receive multiple screenings.

Filmed entirely in Albemarle and Buckingham counties, When Love Walks In tells the story of John Redgrave, a photographer who struggles to raise his three-year-old daughter after his wife’s untimely death. Emotionally devastated, he attempts to pick-up the pieces of his shattered life with the help of his charming father and an unlikely new love interest. Elements of loss, love, and eventual restoration have pre-release audiences comparing When Love Walks In to films like Bounce starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow and Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

The release of When Love Walks In is reason for celebration. Originally scripted in 1997, the project has been shaped and remolded for nearly a decade before finding its current final form. Working with virtually no budget, almost every aspect of the film’s production was done pro bono as each actor, crewmember, editor, and even caterer donated his time and talents. Producer/Co-director Kent C. Williamson explains, “It was amazing the way the local film community came together to help make When Love Walks In. Actors and crewmembers bent over backwards to help get this film in the can.”

In addition to utilizing local talent in front of and behind the camera, Williamson gathered an impressive list of well-known musicians for the film’s soundtrack. Artists such as Carbon Leaf and singer/songwriter Terri Allard made contributions along with Messenger, a Richmond-based band, who wrote the film’s theme song. University of Virginia professor Stephan Prock played a crucial role, composing nearly fifty pieces of original music for the film’s score.

The film’s acceptance into the BBIIFF is certainly a great achievement for The Brothers Williamson and Paladin Pictures. Founded in 1999 in Muskogee, Oklahoma, the festival has welcomed thousands of filmmakers and movie-enthusiasts from around the world, extending hospitality to all and recognizing the best with coveted “Bonehead” awards. Along with screenings of various films, the festival showcases unique community events such as free instructional seminars and “movie career days,” where school children are invited to explore the art of filmmaking.

When Love Walks In will be shown on Tuesday, April 19th at 6:00 p.m. in the festival’s “Venue A” screening location and on Saturday, April 23rd at 10:00 p.m. in “Venue C,” bringing the festival to a close.
