Filmed in Columbus, champion city of “Them/Them/Us”, loves of all kinds

A film crew, cast of actors, and an entire film set occupied most of a city block on Neil Avenue between 1st and 2nd Avenues for approximately two weeks during the summer of 2020.

They also filled to the brim and transformed the three-story Italian Village home of Jon Sherman and Melissa Vogley Woods.

The pair couldn’t think of a more appropriate location to set and shoot the movie they co-wrote.

Not only did they want to highlight the city of Columbus, but the house was also where Sherman and Vogley Woods moved in together in 2016, merging their family of four teenage children, which is the premise of “Them/Them/Us.”

“It’s loosely autobiographical,” said Sherman, an associate professor of film at Kenyon College and director of the film, his third feature film project. “The characters meet on a dating site in their 40s. They both have two teenage children and move in together. One of the teens is non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them.”

Hence the title of the film.

However, each of the other teens has their own struggles, including “the one who orders his weed through the mail, the one who talks outright, and last but not least, the ‘good’ kid,” as the biography of the movie.
