I have never made a film before, but that will not stop me from making this film. I have always been adventurous! I have lots of great stories of times I have tried something I had never done before. I am blessed with opportunities to learn more about film-making in unexpected ways.
The other day I got to be an extra in a full-length romantic comedy being filmed here in Cincinnati. Even though the process for making a documentary is different, it was great to be on a movie set and observe! Here is a news story about the film. I have my 2 seconds of fame at time marker 00:51- don't blink! I am behind the blonde woman clapping.
There were so many reasons I am grateful I was on set this particular day. Mostly, I am grateful to have spent the day learning by observing. I hope the audience for this documentary will also learn by watching! Who knows what new ideas for abolishing slavery it might inspire!
