OKLAHOMA CITY - Politicians turning into rats? Maybe not so hard to believe. But Oklahoma City standing in as Moscow? Guthrie acting as the Russian capital? Now that sounds like science fiction.
Leave it all to the special effects guys. In today's high-tech movie world, everything's possible in postproduction.
And when the final cut is in the can, “Higher Mission” will hold a special place in state filmmaking history.
“It's in 3-D,” producer Gray Frederickson said. “First 3-D movie ever shot in Oklahoma.”
