'Prairie Love'

by Minot Daily News | MinotDailyNews.com on 16 Dec 2008

A group of filmmakers originally from Minot have come back home to film a movie about the attempt to find love and companionship on the cold, unforgiving prairie of North Dakota.

The writer and director of "Prairie Love" and 1997 graduate of Minot High School, Dusty Bias, said it's a dark comedy about a nomad who travels the rural roads of North Dakota, living off the land alone in his station wagon. When the nomad saves a stranded man, he also learns of the man's purpose, which is to pick up his pen pal girlfriend from a women's correctional facility.

"A pen pal girlfriend that he's never seen or met, it's just been a pen pal relationship. He (the nomad) steals his identity in hopes of having a relationship with her," Bias said. "In simple terms it's three characters really searching for love and finding it in an odd way."

Fellow Minot High grads Douglas Mueller and Holly Ellis are helping Bias bring his vision to life. Mueller and Bias have done multiple filmmaking projects together, and a film of theirs, "Four Corners," recently won second place at the Seattle Sci-Fi Festival. For this film, Mueller, who lives in California, is a producer and production designer, just to name a few of his responsibilities. Ellis, an actor out of New York, is the production manager and plays the character of the pen pal girl.
