“More Than Only” is a coming of age story about Justin, a young man whose father disapproves of him being gay.
The film was made in 31 days, and filmed in 14 different locations all over the metro area, including at Mike’s Drive-In, DJ’s Treasures on the Hill, Abernethy Chapel and three private homes in Oregon City. The cast and crew also spent five days in Bandon, filming a crucial beach scene.
“We’re in the final phases of production, including sound and sound mastering,” Leigh said, noting that a composer from London found her on social media and is writing the original score for the movie.
Why should people go to her website and contribute to the movie?
“This is a high-quality film. The reason I wrote the film is because it is my way of supporting the [LGBT] community,” Leigh said. “It is helping me give something back and gives them hope.”
“More Than Only” is “a true romantic comedy that just happens to have a gay couple at the center, but it’s more about normalizing [their relationship],” she said.
“Regardless of your bias, now is the time for all of us to open up and think outside the box. And I’m hoping the film can play a part in opening some of those conversations.”
