Hard Work Pays Off for Local Director, Feature Film Makes Debut

Photo of the Day - January 3, 2015OIL CITY, Pa. (EYT) – Two-and-a-half years of hard work has paid off for Director Matt Croyle as his much-anticipated feature film “Potential Inertia” has come to fruition and is now available worldwide.

Croyle, of Oil City, shot the film entirely in western Pennsylvania with the majority of the principle photography taking place in Venango County.

Many viewers will be able to relate to the story as it revolves around a young man, Declan Holmes, who is graduating from college and about to make the transition to the “real world.”

As he’s going through this life-changing time, he’s faced with losing people that matter and struggles to process and ultimately deal with those losses.

Erie native Matthew King, who plays the role of Declan Holmes, stands out as the star of the film. King’s character conveys raw emotions that help sell Croyle’s storyline.

Working with an ultra-low budget, Croyle assembled a talented group of local actors who flash great potential throughout the film.

Sarah Shawgo, Wes Wojtowicz, Randy Moorehead, and Angie Spaziani – all of Venango County – played significant roles in “Potential Inertia.”

The lack of acting experience amongst the group gives “Potential Inertia” an aura of realness.

Overall, Croyle does an excellent job of building on the “real world” plot of “Potential Inertia,” leaving the audience eager to find out how the story of Declan Holmes unfolds.

“Potential Inertia” premiered in Oil City on December 26.

It is available worldwide via video-on-demand rental and digital download at potentialinertia.vhx.tv and indiereign.com/video/potential-inertia.
