It seems to have all started when a daughter of some Smith Mountain Lake residents came home to visit and fell in love with the lake all over again. This particular woman also happens to work for a production studio that decided to make a movie depicting the peace she found at the lake.
The production studio is Life Out Loud. The name of the movie is “Lake Effects” and its storyline is simple but interesting. Two sisters lose their father and re-evaluate the choices of their varied lives (one has gone to the big city, the other stayed at the lake).
In addition to the “Lake Effects” feature, Life Out Loud Films LLC also plans to expand the development of a separate documentary centered on Smith Mountain Lake and Southwest Virginia.
