A Father-Daughter Cinematic Endeavor
Driven by a passion to establish cinematic, narrative storytelling in Lancaster, PA, Dadley Productions is founded by Bradley Hawkins, and daughter, Sarah Hawkins.
Bradley Hawkins, a former film studies and humanities teacher, is a multi-award-winning director, best known for his coming-of-age family drama, Calf Rope, and his comedy-fantasy, Filling In. Sarah Hawkins, is an emerging award-winning producer in Los Angeles, best known for her activism for gender equality in Hollywood through her eight-part series, Or Die Trying.
Bradley Hawkins and daughter, Sarah Hawkins, first teamed up on a project together with the comedy short film, ROLLER COASTER, based on a true story about a harrowing audition experience Sarah went on in 2014. This first-time film collaboration as father and daughter ended up being a film festival darling, winning 30 film awards across the country.
After the success of Roller Coaster, the father-daughter team morphed from a director/actor professional relationship to a director/producer pairing with the comedy-fantasy, FILLING IN, in 2017 winning 61awards on the film festival circuit. The dynamic duo teamed up again as director & producer in 2019 on the production of the coming-of-age family drama, CALF ROPE which was released in May of 2020 and has already won 58 awards during the first three months of its release. In June of 2017, Sarah launched the eight-part series about women in film, OR DIE TRYING, which she executive produced and stars in, and has teamed up with other film production companies on several projects outside of Dadley Productions as a producer.
Dadley Productions is now currently in development on a feature-length screenplay of Calf Rope, along with two other storylines for features, and is currently accepting screenplay submissions for other feature-length film projects as well.
