Hawkeye graduate helps promote Holland-based film

The Frontier Boys premieres Thursday night at 7:30 at the Knickerbocker theatre in downtown Holland.

The Frontier Boys, a full length movie made by Holland-based Grooters Productions, will premiere at the Knickerbocker Theater in downtown Holland this week. It will be shown October 4 and 5, at 7:30 p.m.

The plot centers around “four high school boys whose undefeated basketball season and friendship are threatened after a drive-by shooting leaves one of them in a coma and one of them with a secret. They are inseparable on and off the court, until Brent gets caught up in his older brother’s mixed-up life.”

The movie was filmed in Holland, Charlevoix, and Mancelona, Michigan.

Many west Michigan actors are featured, including Evan Koons, Mark Boyd, Sam Kenny and Taylor DeRoo.

“Bringing The Frontier Boys to the Knickerbocker Theater in downtown Holland is a great privilege for all of us here at Grooters Productions,” said John Grooters.  “We’ve had so much fun with this film, and it’s now been shown in theaters all over the world, such as Australia, South Africa, and Brazil.  Finally, we’ve got it in a theater right here in our hometown.  I can’t wait to show it.”

Hamilton grad Amanda Tyink, Class of 2005, currently works in public relations for Grooters Productions, and recently stopped in to talk to The Thunderhawk staff.

Ms. Tyink talked about doing what you’re passionate about and had this to say:

“Sometimes when you are working towards your education, you start to wonder if it’s worth all the time, energy and those all-nighters you pull in the studio trying to put the finishing touches on your projects, but in the end when you can look back at those projects and feel proud, or when you get the opportunity to work for a talented production company like Grooters you realize it’s worth it. I’m so thankful for all of the teachers and professors who encouraged me to follow my dreams and I’m blessed to be able to share news of upcoming films like The Frontier Boys with Hamilton!”
