Elon alum debuts feature-length film in North Carolina

Cornelius Muller '93's new film, "Find A Way," debut Jan. 4-6 at the Walter Williams High School Auditorium.

Elon alums Cornelius Muller '93 and Peyton Lea '10 worked together in the production of "Find A Way."


Cornelius Muller '93 has completed production of his first feature-length film, "Find A Way," which is loosely based on the sudden death last year of Harry Cohen, a star quarterback for Burlington, N.C.'s, Walter Williams High School.

Muller worked with Cohen through his personal training company, Xplosion, also in Burlington.

In the movie, a fictionalized character based on Cohen has a life changing effect on several families dealing with their own personal struggles.

Much like his first project, the independent film "Brother's Keeper" that came out April 2011, this second faith-inspired film was also filmed in and around Elon University and the Burlington community. Class of 2010 Elon alumnus Peyton Lea, of Peyton Lea Productions, served as director of photography and editor of the film, which was directed by actor Burgess Jenkins.

Muller chose to screen the film at Williams High School Auditorium since that's the school Cohen attended.

The high school is located at 1307 S. Church Street, Burlington, about a 10-minute drive from campus.

Tickets for the shows, which will be will be held Friday, Jan. 4, Saturday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan. 6 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. each day, are $10 and available for online purchase or on-site at the following locations:

"My mission is to make charitable contributions with a portion of all profits from my projects," Muller said. "With the blessings of Harry’s family, I also will continue my charitable mission by helping fund the Harry Cohen Memorial Scholarship with a portion of the profits from "Find a Way" going to help send deserving young people to college."
