"Chronology" is a film project 10 years in the making and a homecoming of sorts for writer/director/actor and producer Kipp Tribble.

After wrapping up scenes in Poland, cast and crew arrived in Greer this past week, filming through the weekend’s heavy rains and continuing as the skies cleared earlier this week. Wednesday afternoon the cameras rolled in downtown.

I went out to L.A. and sold it and moved out there in 1999.”
