Preston native and aspiring filmmaker Levi Robinson finished filming scenes in Dayton and Weston for his debut feature-length film, “Till Blood Do Us Part,” last month.

The crew spent 11 days filming in Idaho. Robinson, who directed, co-wrote, co-produced and acted for the film, picked the location because of fond childhood memories.

“I have family that lives in Dayton, but the scenery always stuck with me,” Robinson said. “I love southern Idaho with all of the fields. It’s super quiet and the people there are super nice.”

Robinson, 22, was born in Preston, but grew up mostly in Salt Lake City where he attended East Hollywood High School, a charter school specializing in filmmaking.

“I wanted to make movies ever since I was super young,” Robinson said. “I either wanted to be a filmmaker or a mad scientist.”
