Meet Young Crawford!




Blayze Hippensteel is cast to play YOUNG CRAWFORD BENNINGTON in The Family Way.

As a teenager, Crawford (or “Craw”, as he likes to be called) had enough of being bullied at school. He knew he couldn’t take on the popular jock in a fight, but his pretty girlfriend was a different story. After leaving the disemboweled body in that backseat of his tormentor’s car, Craw felt a sense of empowerment from killing.

Unfortunately, he was still very young and prone to making a lot of novice mistakes.

But Craw was also very lucky. His sloppy murder spree regularly made national news. This caught the attention of the Cultry family, who had a special way of dealing with kids like him and sought to bring him under their wing.

Meet the Crew - Scott



Scott will be working his camera magic to tell the story of The Family Way.

Scott has earned awards for cinematography, directing, writing, visual effects, and producing for films such as  "Harbinger", "Reset", "Salvage", "Hostage", and "Lockdown".

He was the Director of Photography for The Best Laid Plans and "The Family Way: Coming Home" and recently acted as A-Camera Operator on Kevin Smith's Killroy Was Here.
