Director Statement

Hi There!

My name is Henry Riley, an upcoming filmmaker from Southern Maine with ambitious spirit and passion for telling stories! My newest project, The Hunting Trail which follows an experienced bow-hunter deep in northern Maine on a solo hunting trip who gets critically injured and must race against time (and the unforgiving wild) to make it out alive.

This story is a passion project of both mine and co-producer Blake Wright for a long time. This past October we had the opportunity to finally film it in the beautiful forests of Nobleboro, Maine. Not only does this film showcase some of the most beautiful hidden treasures of Maine’s landscape, but also explores themes of isolation, self-reflection and the natural violent order of life.

Thank you for everyone who helped make this dream a reality, I am eternally grateful.
