At 50 years old, I just cashed in my entire
retirement plan of $15,000 to invest in equipment and make this movie
called Camille’s Magic. I didn’t make this decision because
I am expecting to make the money back, but because I have a few stories
to tell before I die and my 50th year seemed like the year I needed to
be about my story telling.
Directing and producing this film is by far the hardest thing I've ever done. We've been fortunate enough to have really committed people interesting in challenging themselves with something new.
Although I am deeply committed to my volunteer jobs with the homeless and runaway youth of Colorado Springs and whatever others ask me to do, I am the only person who does not have a day job, therefore I am the only full time person on this film.
I am HMFIC of all the different departments
like set design, costume design, marketing, etc., etc. Every week I
have a couple of days where I'm so overwhelmed I think I just can't
do it, but then I remember I only have to take one step at a time and
that there are only so many steps in a day. I remember this is for the
learning and this is just for fun. Completion is now my only goal.
After 10 months of technical practice with camera, sound and lighting. We had our pre-production wrap party and begin production on 7/19/04.
