Filming continued with one more of the final handful of scenes of Malicious Attack this past weekend in London Ontario. The scene filmed was one half of a telephone conversation between character Liam Stevens and Samantha Knight. Liam is played by Max Steinberg who has been in a number of scenes of the film. But in this scene actually speaks the first words that the character has. It’s a scene where the character Liam is excited about witnessing a fight in the school yard between the films bully Savannah and one of her victims Naomi. The scene takes a little glimpse at how boys verse girls respond to a fight. With this scene Max wraps his role in the film. But he is not resting.
Max is ranked currently 40, 717 on IMDb for stars around the world. Some might say that’s not that good. But when you are competing against all the stars of Hollywood as well that’s pretty high for a teenager out of London Ontario that is rising like a star. Max has had five productions that he has done in the first half 2017 and will be hosting is own TV show called “Max TV” in the summer of 2017 as well. He currently is still filming his role as Chris in Summer of Discovery in which Malicious Attack Director and writer Matthew Marshall is a producer and assistant director on. Marshall’s company m & s Marshall Productions is in association with IME Films on the feature film that will be filming most of the summer in south-western Ontario. With the primary locations being London and St Thomas.
Meanwhile Malicious Attack is working on finishing its final few scenes and then it will head into post production. Marshall and his company m & s Marshall Productions is already doing some of the prep work in preparing to turn the footage over to the editor for post-production.
Marshall feels Malicious Attack takes a twist on the traditional bully story line as at its heart it is a ‘good girl gone bad’ due to being bullied. The bully of the story Savannah (Elina Lattanzio) not only bullies “the Good Girl” Naomi but also the “outcast” Raven, the “Pregnant Teen”, Sara and the “immigrant” in Linda. Each of these characters has a different reaction and response to the bullying they experience. Naomi becomes the relentless target of the bullying by Savannah while Naomi’s best friend Macey tries to find ways to help Naomi expose the bullying, but Naomi is unwilling to come forward. The Attacks on Naomi continue till she is pushed to a breaking point.
Marshall offers this on the topic of bullying in the film, “I think we all have seen bullying in some form or another regardless of our ages. Everyone knows someone who has been bullied. It happens every day and it affects everyone. This story gives lots of opportunity to discuss the issue of bullying and the reactions of those that are bullied” says Marshall.
The cast includes; Katie Ostojic, Morgan Flanagan, Elina Lattanzio, Marley Cabral, Helena Rose, Mary Ellen Herder, Corina Leatherdale, Aaliyah Paul, Judy Cormier, Dina Jasim, Max Steinberg, Elizabeth Harden, Tiandra Edwards, Ian James Smith, April Booth, Kayla Hope Felker, Lesley Chapman, Jamie Rainbird, Serena Webber, Brooklyn Pritchard, Kailey Dennis, Mallaidh Pouti, Melissa Ramos, Jerry Ziler, Kyra Ramos, Kendal Cabral, Rob Herder, Tracey Bell, Emma Lee Willsie and Talitha Wood
Marshall hopes when the film is done is to get it into schools and teen groups to help open up discussion and dialogue about the issue of bullying.
