A film writer and director found his way home to Wapakoneta for his latest project.

Cedric Gegel was a graduate of Wapakoneta High School in 2013. He returned home on Tuesday to film his new movie "Cadia: The World Within". He wrote and is directing the film and recruited actors from all over Ohio to be a part of the project. He even had some well-established actors join the ranks such as James Phelps from the "Harry Potter" series and Corbin Bernsen from "Major League". The cast and crew filmed scenes in Wapakoneta's Temple of Tolerance. Today marked the halfway point of their twelve days of shooting.

"My first ever directing time was when I did a short and actually filmed it here, and so getting to come back to where I actually directed my first short and direct my first feature that was a really cool experience, it just kind of happened by chance," said Gegel.

Gegel said the film is about hope, love, doubt, and good vs evil. He plans to submit the film to a few festivals with an official release sometime around Easter.
