THANKS

Inside Scofield was filmed between 2018 and 2019, just before the pandemic would affect life in general and cultural life specifically. The postproduction was entirely made possible by the great people who supported the film and its crowdfunding campaign during uncertain times in 2020. – Thank you very much for the extraordinary support!
