I've known writer/director Eric Hendershot and his wife Dickilyn for quite sometime. Eric has been working on films for many years with writing credits that include Take Down, and The Dream Machine. His directing credits include the Clubhouse Detective series, and Horse Crazy. This year, Mr. Hendershot kicked off the Eclipse Film Festival with the premiere of Clubhouse Detectives: In Search of a Lost Princess, a charming little picture aimed at the kids.
In the mystery/comedy, a group of youngsters known as the Clubhouse Detectives, are propelled into adventure and intrigue, as they try to determine which local kiddy is actually a missing princess. The mini-sleuths set up a series of tests to try and discover the identity of the royal one, who could be one of a number of suspects.
Shot locally in St. George UT, Hendershot knows how to use his resources. In Search of a Lost Princess is a simple film. And given it's target audience, that's more then acceptable. He's rounded up a cast of young charmers whom, above all, really appear to have had a fun time making this movie. The packed audience certainly had a fun time watching it.
I really enjoyed Club House Detectives: In Search of a Lost Princess for what it was. A well intentioned children's film with a high spirited cast and a family friendly story line.
If you missed this one, it should hit video and cable before too long.
