Dartmouth Week: Padanaram poses for East Texas in independent movie shoot

Filming “St. Jones Ditch” has brought director Jeffrey Long, writer Sarah Brockmann and the cast and crew all over Rhode Island, the South Shore and the South Coast. The only complication? The movie takes place in East Texas. 

The latest location to pose as the titular Lone Star town is Padanaram Village — more specifically, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, and even more specifically, the old barn behind it. 

Brockmann is an Episcopal priest herself, at Trinity Church in Rockland, and found the location by putting out a call to fellow clergy people. Scott Ciosek, rector of St. Peter’s, responded and said he’d love to help out.
