|Behind the Scenes for The Harvest|
An Interview with the Executive Producer, Chuck Klein
What is The Harvest?
I was 8, Jerry 10, David 5 and Bob 2. It is the story of a father and his sons, a story of how a family is pushed to the edge... a crisis at harvest becomes a race against time. It is a story of courage, of a family in need, and the beautiful love of a community.
The Harvest was filmed on location in my home state of North Dakota,
with some of the same families involved in the production who were also
there to help 40 years ago when the event took place. The production
and post production was a wonderful story in and of itself, of how people
in the media industry, as well as the good people of North Dakota, came
together to make The Harvest possible.
Why did you produce The Harvest?
We produced The Harvest to tell the story, and in so doing inspire people everywhere. Because it is a story about family, about crisis and about community, it encourages and challenges us to come together, put aside our differences for a greater cause, and be involved in changing our world. It is a wonderful picture of caring, of sacrifice, of prayer and of courage.
