Movie Being Filmed At Singer Castle


If the scene looks like it's in a French castle, the Columbia University film crew is doing its job.

7 News was granted access to the set of the movie "The Year I Grew An Inch."

"It's the story of a young boy who is trying to get in the resistance to fight against the evil Nazis," said Ferran Mendoza Soler, assistant director.

In the movie, a young boy falls in love with the daughter of a Nazi who owns a castle in France.

In reality, the castle is actually Singer Castle on Dark Island on the St. Lawrence River.

"It works perfect for the atmosphere of the film, the whole feel of it," said Mendoza Soler.

The crew watches the scene, then decides to shoot it again until it's perfect.

"It's great having them here because it gives exposure not only to us, but to the region and the Thousand Islands," said Thomas Weldon of Dark Island Tours.

The film crew was able to use every nook and cranny of the castle to make the movie.

"Enable us to use as much as possible, from all the different room and have been able to move things around and make it even better," said Marion Cecinas, student producer.

When the crew finishes at the castle Friday, production will move closer to New York City.

The movie will be shown at the Columbia Film Festival in 2015.
