The filming of the independent feature film Grazia, a true suspenseful and romantic love story, was a wrap on 10-16-2009 and is currenly in post production which will be completed by 12-1-2009.

The film is slated for a mid-January 2010 premier in St. Augustine, Florida. It is reminiscent of a Merchant-Ivory Production.

The film is a Fountain-Wafford Production which brings all new faces and interesting characters to the screen. The producer, a native Floridian, Wendell Fountain, also played the male lead in the film. The female lead was played by the beautiful and sensuous Tecla Dal Degan who hails from Vicenza, Italy near Venice. Shannon (Shan) Wafford directed the action and also co-wrote the screenplay along with Wendell and Grace Fountain which came from the inspired novel Grace authored by Wendell Fountain. There were many outstanding supporting cast members such as Al Aldrich, Missy Hall, Hilary Teisan, Eric Smith, Mike Petroff, Anthony PFleger, Ronnie Fountain, Jim Harsey, David Stevens, Mike Corcoran, Steve Canfield, Jim Hughes, and Grace Mandicott Fountain in addition to many others. Including extras, a total of 120 people participated in the movie.

The musical score is all original music from many sources. James E. Holmes of Rooster Recording Studio in Jacksonville, Florida provided for most of the work found in the film. He wrote the theme song Until Then among other selections which are essential components of this work of art.    

The shoot was primarily filmed in St. Augustine, Florida. Other shooting locations were Jacksonville, Florida, Palm Coast, Florida and Putnam County, Florida. During the filming, a total of more than 40 venues were used. Certain Locations in St. Augustine and the European Village of Palm Coast, Jacksonville, and a vineyard in Putnam County served as Italian backdrops.

Fountain has spoken with an Epic Theatres official of Deland, Florida who has expressed interest in premiering the movie in St. Augustine.
