Forest Springs B&B @ Historic Heiney House
Forest Springs Bed and Breakfast in Gresham was recently used as a filming location.
For three days Hollywood (or at least Portland’s Version) occupied Forest Springs Bed and Breakfast. Michael Conner Humphreys (Young Forest Gump) was our guest during the shoot and together with Portland Independent Films, they shot 3 scenes from their upcoming movie.
"Pathfinders: In The Company of Strangers" is set in WWII England and France. As well as having a featured role in the Movie, Conner directed a few scenes. The Story centers around 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.
The cast and crew were an absolute delight and despite the lights, cables, people, props and general chaos, they left the Bed and Breakfast as they had found it. Look for the Movie's release sometime in late 2010.
