Population 2golightlyfilms has partnered with Moon Tribe Studios and Stark Arts to produce the independent film "Population 2" The film, set against the backdrop of post-apocalypse Earth, "Population 2" is about a relationship that ends in tragedy forcing a woman to struggle in the aftermath.

The production just finished principal photography at three of Oregons most historic locations; The Gordon House (designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright), The Shanghai Tunnels and the soon to be torn down FairvieHospital in Salem.

Population 2 is a short film about a young woman who is abandoned in the wake of the apocalypse. Every day, Lilith wanders the remains of civilization, scavenging what she can from the deserted refuse of what was once a bustling city. Every night, she returns to her home underneath the dead city and contemplates the past that has left her alone.

This is the first short in a series of three installments that will make up a full lenght feature film. The feature will be entitled, "The Threshing Floor". An ambitious project, "The Threshing Floor" will include writers and producers from Portland's best filmmaker's. The projected release date for "Population 2" is in 2010.

Kenneth Luba, Director/DP for golightlyfilms, inc. is the principal Director of Photography for an independent, full length feature film being shot in Oregon. Writen and Directed by Curt Sindelar and Produced by Portland Independent Films, Inc, the film is an inspirational story of integrity and perseverance.

Pathfinders: In The Company Of Strangers is about a small group of 82nd Airborne Pathfinders - a volunteer unit of American paratroopers whose mission is to land in the heart of enemy territory, and survive long enough to direct the coming airborne invasion of Normandy. Their only hope for survival lies in remaining undiscovered, successfully marking the drop zones, and holding off the enemy until the ensuing invasion arrives.

Set in 1944, everything about the film is historically accurate, down to the patches the soldiers wear. The writers, art director and set designers have worked closely with history specialists and a group of actual paratroopers to recreate the look of the era.

The film honors all soldiers who have served and is a story of perseverance and the ability to overcome insurmountable odds. The film tells their true story and reveals the courage of one of the the most daring, and widely unrecognized missions on D-Day. Their selfless devotion to duty, honor, and country brought freedom to millions.

The film is being shot in Super 16mm and employs local crew and equipment vendors. Locations in Oregon were chosen for their accurate depiction of the French countryside and a two acre exterior set was constructed in Newburg, Oregon for principal photography of large battle scenes.
