Growing up in Texas, Blake DeLong didn’t have an understanding about how films are made. The star of “Bagatelle,” which filmed in Cuero, now has the opportunity to share his knowledge with aspiring actors and filmmakers along with writer/director Daniel Levin.

“It’s attracting a lot of attention,” DeLong said of the short film, which they premiered in Los Angeles. “We’re looking to generate interest and ultimately to find financial support.”
At this point, they’ve come together with a number of partners in the United States and Europe.
