Synopsis: Aisha is apprehensive, not ashamed, of revealing her new acting part to her family. Her father doesn’t make matters better by putting her on the spot to reveal it at a family cookout at their house.As I approach my next film Hymnal I’m thinking a lot about this film. Like all artist I’m critical of my own work and I feel like I can see every mistake I made. LOL. But like the late great one said
"I expected this film to be finished a long time ago, but because of the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution we had to halt production. In other words the seasons changed and we couldn't shoot additional shots for the cookout anymore. LOL.
We finally had additional shooting (called pick up shots) during the spring and summer 2009."I recount a lot of what went on on this blog. I created this blog for the burgeoning filmmakers to read about the progress of the film. A sort of “war journal”.
After we finally completely the film I had a catered a Private Screening for family, cast and crew. It was great to see everyone back together again and it was a great night. We went in to have several public screenings of the film and I eventually put it on YouTube for the cast and crew.
I’ve learned and shot SO MUCH stuff since shooting this film six years ago and I’m finally ready to shoot the next one!
I’m still friends and keep in contact with most of the cast and crew and lo these years later I still THANK THEM for all of their work and participation.
