Tonya S. Holly
Tonya S. Holly has been in the film business for over 20 years. Her credits include such films as "Toy Soldiers" starring Louis Gossett Jr., and Sean Astin, and she did the casting on the Oscar award winning film "Blue Sky" starring Jessica Lange and Tommy Lee Jones. She has worked with CBS, HBO, NBC, FOX, Morgan Creek, Universal, Buena Vista, and many other independent productions. She also founded the Alabama Filmmakers Association in 1991 to help promote film in the state of Alabama and to develop sound stages in Northwest Alabama. She produced and directed numerous plays, commercials, and the music video "This Day" which included over 30 songwriters and nearly 1000 voices. She produced the largest gathering of Muscle Shoals musicians in history on a double CD set called "One Voice". She also opened Gem-Star talent agency in 1989 to develop local talent in Northwest Alabama. "The Mirror" captures time and reveals a very compelling story without using dialogue. It is a risk that very few filmmakers have taken, but Tonya S. Holly proves that it was a risk well worth taking. This film is truly a work of art. Tonya S. Holly's feature film entitled "When I Find the Ocean" starring Lily Matland Holly, Diane Ladd, Lee Majors, Graham Greene, Richard Tyson, Bernie Casey, Amy Redford, George Lindsey, and David Fralick, has won many awards, such as the Kids First! Tonya S. Holly is currently in development on her next feature film, "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde," starring Sean Faris (Never Back Down) and Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood). Tonya S. Holly

Cypress Moon Productions Inc.

June 1, 2007, Florence, AL - With pre-production about to begin on The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, the newest feature film from Alabama-based independent filmmaker Tonya S. Holly of Cypress Moon Productions, Holly and her team are continuing their travels throughout the South as they scout for locations for the film in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
After participating in the annual Bonnie and Clyde festival in Gibsland, LA on May 25 and 26 and speaking at the Historians Meeting to an excited audience of Bonnie and Clyde fans, including several from both the Parker and Barrow families, Holly continued scouting for locations to shoot The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Holly, who wants to shoot some of the film in her homestate of Alabama, was also motivated to explore Mississippi as a potential location for the film because of the aggressive new incentives offered by the state. Holly was intrigued by Natchez...a charming and beautiful little town which could easily be used for scenes that are set in many of the Southern states that Bonnie and Clyde traveled through. "I am absolutely thrilled with all of the locations we discovered in Natchez. It was my first time here and now I cannot wait to return to shoot scenes for The Story of Bonnie and Clyde," said Holly who wrote the original screenplay that she will direct and produce. "From walking around the historic downtown district to driving through miles of dirt roads, I found so many of the locations that I want to use for the film...many of them are so spot on that there is very little we need to do except dress the sets." Among the specific locations that Holly visited are the JM Jones Lumber Company, The Stratton Chapel in the rear, Natchez Eola Hotel, the old jail in the county supervisors building and Jefferson College. The team also found numerous downtown shops that can be dressed to look like the banks and storefronts That Bonnie and Clyde robbed as well as rows of houses that can double as tourist courts. Holly and her team also traveled to and toured Angola prison in Louisiana that will be used to recreate the infamous Eastham prison - also known as Bloddyham, in which Clyde was incarcerated. Set to start production Summer 2007, The Story of Bonnie and Clyde is a new adaptation (not a remake) of the classic love story which tells the thrilling true story of the notorious fugitives. Taking place during the 1930's Depression, the film follows follows the adventures of Bonnie and Clyde, uncovering many times in their lives that have never before been seen on the big screen. Holly is in talks with name talent to star in the film. Previously Holly wrote, produced and directed the feature film When I Find The Ocean. Tonya S. Holly from these publications: WHNT News

Franklin County Times article (2/4/2004)

If funding is secured, shooting for the film will begin in April, according to the film's producer, Tonya S. Holly.
Holly, president of Cypress Moon Productions in Florence, said she plans to shoot most of the movie in Franklin County.

Franklin County Times article (2/4/2004)

Tonya S. Holly, president of Cypress Moon Productions in Florence, said she needs approximately $2.8 million, half her total budget, to make her movie, "When I Find The Ocean.
And the 17-year veteran of the movie industry said she is confident that shooting will begin April 18 in Franklin County, where much of the story takes place. For now, Holly is moving forward with the project. "Things are looking good," said Holly, who in recent days has scouted Franklin County for talent and locations for her movie. "We have an important trip to California at the end of February, and I hope we will have all our financing by the time we return to Alabama in early-March." Although Holly expects to secure financing in California, she said she hopes to attract Alabama investors to the project. "It would help our cause with Hollywood executives if some local investors got on board with us," she said. "This could be a great thing for northwest Alabama, especially economically, and I want to make it happen. "So many movies that take place in Alabama aren't actually made in Alabama," said Holly, who has family connections to Franklin County. "I want to shoot this movie here." In fact, Holly said she hopes that "When I Find The Ocean" will be the first of many feature films made in the region. "I plan to make more movies here," she said. "And I hope that other production companies will make movies here, too." Holly said she has a commitment from actor Louis Gossett Jr. to star in "When I find The Ocean" and is hopeful that Kris Kristofferson and Billy Bob Thornton will join the cast. Naomi Judd, Graham Greene and Richard Tyson will also have roles in the movie, Holly said. "I've worked with Louis in the past," said Holly, who said she plans to use the Russellville City Jail and a Bear Creek cabin, among other Franklin County locations, in the movie. Holly describes "When I Find The Ocean" as a family adventure.
